Hello Fellow Lions,

Wow! What a GREAT 4-H fair this year! The weather was super, big crowds, good food, great music, and lots of fun. The fair is a good time to see friends and family we haven’t seen in a while. Our parking and cafe revenue were up this year due to the good weather. The Board of Directors and Officers want to thank all Lions, spouses, friends, and family who helped to make this year’s fair a great success.

The Lion fair booth in the tennis building was a lot of fun. The Lions from our club passed out our flyers and told about the service projects our club is involved with in our community and the state. Thank you, Lion Wayne Sozansky, for chairing this information booth.

Two new metal bleachers were purchased and used for Grandpa Cratchet at Pioneer Village and at the south grandstand for the music and pageant. There were many positive comments about their safety. Maybe more can be purchased later.  

Our club purchased a 244 pound pig for $610 from 4-H’er Berry Graham. Lion Stan Rush was presented with a kiss from the fair Queen. Lion Lin Ortman, do you know who purchased the kiss for Lion Stan?

We voted, and have a new member in our club. Nathan Nicholson was voted on and was accepted as a new Lion at the last board meeting. His sponsor is his dad, Stu Nicholson. Nathan has volunteered with his dad on the parking assignments for the last five years. Welcome, Lion Nathan, and thank you, Lion Stu, for signing him up. Lion Nathan is a student at Purdue.  Who are you thinking about asking to join our Lions club? They won’t join unless you ask them. I have five prospects I am working on. There will be a surprise to the first Lion that signs up a new member in the month of September.

At the September 10 meeting we will vote by membership on a new doctor and dentist office addition to the Pioneer Village. The funds for this project were donated by Community Howard Regional Health Hospital. We will also be submitting the 2018/2019 budget for approval at this meeting.
