A great big thank you goes out to Lion Chris Jensen for putting together another great Christmas party at Coyote Moon Grille.  A thank you also to Lion Geri Hotz for making the candy gifts.  Thank you for the many items that were donated to Anna Marie's. Thanks to all!  A very enjoyable evening!


Our thanks go out once again to Lion Mike Evans for chairing the wreath sales, and a huge thank you to all our Lion members that sold wreaths.  If you have not already done so, please turn your wreath money into Lion Mike Evans as soon as possible.  Lion Mike reports that we raised approximately $5,000.

The 5M8 Mid-Winter Convention is February 21st, 2nd, 3rd at the Kelly Inn in St. Cloud.  Contact Lion Mike Evans if you are going to attend.  This is a great way to get a "bigger picture" of what Lions do beyond our club activities.  Registration forms can be found at



Lion Charlie Lindt has reported that approximately 40 groups and 1400 people used our park shelter this past year.  What a nice tribute to our hard work and gift to the community.



Lion President Glen Farb is looking for a Hearing Chair and a Donations Chair to serve on the Board of Directors.  If you have any questions, or would like to serve, Contact Lion Glen.  Next month we will be nominating Lions to serve in various leadership positions during the 2019-2020 Lions year.  If you have any interest in serving in a leadership role please contact one of the current board members.
