With summer coming to a close it is a god time for us to reflect on the busy summer we had. Our Annual Sports Banquet went off smoothly; many proud students were recognized for their hard work and dedication. Camp Abilities (one of my personal favorite activities) was a huge success! The campers and counselors all enjoyed a summer picnic menu that did NOT include carrot slaw!! The Snack Shack has moved on to a more suitable home, while we upgraded to a portable storage trailer, thank you to Glenn Sickles! The new unit will allow us more flexibility and storage options than that of the old shack! Thank you to all Lions who came out for the several modification/work projects to get the unit operating to fit our needs and a special thank you to Lion Ernie for the great paint job! Now that we have ample storage room we are able to take in all the items/stuff that we all have been storing here, there and everywhere…so if you would like to clear out your closet, trunk or garage please call Lion Ernie for drop off arrangements! Our Installation Night was an evening of food, fun and friends! Congratulations to our new Lion of the Year, Lion Joyce! Lion Joyce has been an active valuable member for 20+ years! She can always be found with a helping hand, warm smile and if you listen close enough you may even hear her voice echo down Main Street singing “Candy Days for Lions Club!” Thank you Lion Joyce for being an outstanding Lion and “Serving” our community, we are proud to call you one of our own! The Scottsville Summer Fest was a great time for us to take the trailer out for its first big project! Although the weather was warm it did not hold us back… it is rumored that the kitchen crew did sweat off a few pounds that day! Thank you to all Lions, wives and families that helped!
With September nearing that can only mean one thing! Lion Roland is ready to sing!! Our first meeting of the year will be on Thursday September 10th! Bonnie Torpey will be providing a lovely dinner of scalloped potatoes with ham, steamed broccoli with carrots, apple sauce and apple crisp for dessert! Please call in your dinner reservation to Lion Ruth by Monday September 7th. Lion Mitch has our member folder s with our calendar of events and will deliver them at our first meeting! Do you now where your club pin is?? I would recommend having it as I hear the tail twister is roaring and ready to get this year started! See you soon!
