Lions Mike & Ned report that pork butt project was a big success and they expect to report record profits. Great job, guys!  
 
​Please keep Lion Chris Morrison  in your thoughts and prayers as he had an accident at home recently, breaking bones in his foot (heel) and back. He had surgery the other week and is now tooling around in a fancy, smacy foot cart. He seems to be healing well but won't be climbing any more trees to rake leaves anytime soon.
 
​The club recently received a donation of a Merlin HD Ultra Enhanced Vision Machine. This machine is several years old and in great shape. It is similiar to the other machine we have on loan to a local resident. It magnifies print so VIP's can better see to read. If you know of anyone needing to borrow this machine, please see Lions Mike Lewis or Marvin Bare.
 
Lions Bill and Mark report they have collected 73 "coats for vets" and you still have time to get new or gently used coats to them before Nov 3rd.. They will deliver all collected coats to the Gold Hill Lions Club in Linwood next week.
​Lion Debbie reports that we have completed all of our vision screenings for this year.  Lion Debbie wishes to thank all Lions, spouses, church and school volunteers who came out and helped with the 8 pe-school and 9 elementary/middle school screenings. We screened 299 pre-schoolers and 3085 elementary/middle schoolers for a total of 3384 students. We couldn't have done it without YOU! we have now screened well over 50,000 students since we started this program in 1995.
 
Local Lions clubs are encouraged to connect with your community and build your Lion legacy by planning a Centennial Community Legacy Project during our Centennial Celebration. Legacy Projects are visible gifts to your community that commemorate our Centennial and create a lasting legacy of your service contributions.

Our Legacy Project will serve as a reminder of just how important your club is to the community during the Centennial and beyond. All Lions clubs around the world are encouraged to complete a Legacy Project by June 30, 2018, so start planning yours today!

Your board or directors is asking members to come up with ideas and suggestions for our Legacy Project for our community. Please think about, discuss with each other and submit your suggestions to any board member.

​We have Lions Club collection boxes at the following locations through out the Kernersville and Walkertown areas to collect cell phones, hearing aids and eye glasses. The Lions listed beside the location have agreed to pickup collected items periodically and bring to Lion Jerry Medford for transport to Camp Dogwood. If a new box is needed, please let Secretary Marvin Bare know ASAP. Lion Larry Martin has some new smaller boxes for collecting eye glasses. If you want to replace a larger one with a smaller one, please contact him.
