Tonight we will be inducting our officers for the 2013-2014 Lions year. This is a good time to show our support for the leaders of our club, and wish them well as they enter into the new year. Lion President-Elect John Hotz will be serving as president for a second time. His first term was in 2001-2002. Lion Mike Evans will be serving a sixth year as secretary, and Lion Harold Zosel will be serving an eleventh full-term as treasurer. With a leadership team like this, they will need all the member help and support they can get. So come on out and help get them off to a good start….
