Scott Teays Lions Club

On Monday evening, May 7th,  48 people gathered for a catered meal at First State Bank Community Room to celebrate the winners of the 2018 essay contest sponsored by the Scott Teays Lions Club. The group included the winners, parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, teachers, principals and Lions.  The group was smaller this year because two schools were on Field Trips and three of the winners were unable to attend. Each of the students wrote an essay titled "What the American Flag Means to Me".  Following the meal, the three winners that were present read their essays and received a framed certificate and $100.  The evening is always special for those attending.The  older sister of one of the winners, that could not be present, read her essay.  The other two essays were read aloud by a Lion. Lion Bill Hensley delivered the certificates to the winners at their schools on the following Wednesday. The winners unable to attend were: Abby Cecil and Toree Switzer of West Teays and Riley McCoy of Lakeside.

 

 

On Tuesday, March 20th,  four members of the Scott Teays Lions club (Tom Owens, Harold Walker, Luther Cope and Bill Hensley) visited the 5th grade classrooms in five Putnam County schools (Connor Street, Lakeside, Mountain View, Scott Teays and West Teays) and presented a program on the American Flag history and treating the Flag with proper respect. In total, a little more than 300 students attended.  Each student was given a small 3 X 5 flag and an information brochure. Lion Bill Hensley introduced the program and told the students about an essay contest sponsored by the Lions.  A winner will be selected from each school and the winner , the winner's parents and teacher will be invited to an awards dinner on May 7th where the winners will read their essays and receive $100 and a framed certificate of achievement. Then Bill introduced Lion Tom Owens.  Tom told some history and had some beautiful replicas of early American flags.  One of those flags was the only flag to ever have 15 stripes. The two stripes were added when Vermont and Kentucky became states. That flag is the flag that flew over Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor when Francis Scott Key wrote his poem that later became our National Anthem.  Key wrote the poem in 1814 and it became our National Anthem in 1916. It used the music from a British drinking song titled "The Anacreontic Song". Following Tom's presentation, Luther elaborated on the history and Harold talked about how to treat the Flag with proper respect.  The Lions club has been presenting this program in 5th grade classrooms for more than 30 years.
