Hello Fellow Lions,

Another Christmas and New Year has come and gone. Some of us have made some new New Year’s resolutions: to lose 10 pounds, visit family more, quit smoking, or exercise more. I have made a New Year’s resolution to invite someone to every Lions meeting in 2019. I made a list of prospective members I intend to invite. Every month I will ask them till one of them attends and joins our club. The first meeting of the month is usually the easiest to invite them to because we have a free meal. Once they attend and see what our club does in the community they will want to join. So that’s one of my New Year’s resolution, What’s yours?

Lions Henry Rodriguez and Deb Kramer put together a GREAT display of lights this year. They have purchased many new displays with LED lights. They also had a record number of sponsors. Inside the round barn was the town of Spencerville with an electric freight train running thru it. The train went over two bridges across the Wildcat Creek. Was that Lion Jay Freeman ice fishing? The train stopped at the station and take on new freight. The town of Spencerville was donated by the Virgil Spencer family. Tell them how much you like the town. Lion Ron Julius was voted as the best Conductor of the train.

There was a three way tie for best Santa between Lions Dave Spencer, Russ Stier, and Ralph Wilson. Maybe if Lion Bill Holt lets his beard grow he could be in the running next year? Lion Bill Holt had all of us ringing bells, singing, sorting food, and delivering baskets to 84 families in our area. Ringing bells this year was fun and the weather was in our favor. Lion Bill, please schedule the same weather for next year. The Boy’s and Cub’s Scouts collected food for us to deliver. Brad Howell (Brad Howell Ford) gave us the food they collected at “Breakfast with Santa”. Thanks Lion Tom Moor for picking up the food and bringing it to the metal building to sort. The EHS football team and coaches helped us deliver the baskets on Saturday morning. WOW, what it was like to be 16-18 years old again! On December 10 we had our annual Christmas Dinner at EHS café. We thank Main Occasions for another great meal. The entertainment was provided by our own EHS Choir, Orchestra, and Band. Thanks to all three groups for a super job.

The winners for the sharpest Christmas outfits were: Tie – Lion John Fawcett (new transfer member from Kokomo Noon Club) Socks – Lion Robert Cohee; Sports Coat – Lion Bill Holt & Lion David Spencer. All received a box of candy. Each of our Lion’s widows was presented a box of J. Edwards candy. Every table had beautiful Christmas decorations that were provided by Lion Regina Poe and her committee. At each table there were candy canes. Lion Mike Imbler read the Legend of the Candy Cane.

Isn’t it GREAT to be a LION,
Mike Imbler, President
