Our next meeting is Tuesday, Aug 28th at Main Street UMC at 6 PM. Program will be Opoids Awareness by Peak Pharmacy. Circle #4 will be feeding us. See you there.

​PDG George Culp visited us at the Aug 14th meeting to tell us what a great club we were and how our district did last year. The surprise of the meeting was his presenting Lion Larry Martin with a Jack Stickley Award from district 31-I. Congratulations Larry!

Hold the date! Sep 25th will be a special time as the Kernersville Lions Club celebrates our 80th anniversary. The Charter Night committee is planning a special evening for all members. Plan on signing up ASAP to attend this special function.

Congratulations to Lion Larry Martin, who received the 'Past Presidents Award' at the last meeting. Lion Larry led us through an amazing year, then hit us with the zinger at year end. . 

What a wonderful gesture! If you were at the last meeting in June, you know that Lion Larry Martin and wife Jeanie announced a $50,000 donation to the club. It is in the form of a matching fund that the club has to match and is to be used for specific areas of need. Thank you Larry and Jeanie for your charitable spirit and contribution. A committee has been  formed to evaluate and determine the best utililization of these funds. More details to follow. 

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.
