Last Meeting

The meeting was opened by President Sue McNally, welcoming all members and special guests.

Amy Shriver presented her nonprofit organization “Angel Gowns by Diane”. Amy is the head of the Pennsylvania chapter, one of 20 chapter (states) which have this program. The members and supporters of the organization receive donated bridal dresses and men’s suits to make little gowns and pouches (“wraps”) for the burial of premature still born babies and babies who die within their first year. The organization is in desperate need for volunteers to help in making the gowns. In some months the demand is higher than they can provide. It is all a lack of “manpower”, Amy reported. Material they have plenty. Each wedding dress yields about 15-20 little gowns to dress up the babies on their last journey. Thank you Amy!

Donations:

·         We had a request to participate in the cost of canine bullet proof vest. Bill Baxendell found a vest at Trappuzanos for $1100. The motion to donate the entire amount was raised. The club will purchase the vest and present it direct to the dog and handler, who will be invited to one of our forthcoming meetings. Bill will continue to lead the project. A request was made by Ralph Fisher to donate $500 to Marlene Day to support her efforts in “A Cure in Sight”.  It was also decided to participate again with CYS to buy Christmas presents for kids.  More info to follow. 

Misc.

  • Farmers Market:. It was decided to end our participation for this year in Sept.  Not a lot of demand for Lemonade in Oct.    Thanks to everyone who helped make it a success.  Also thanks to Carol Broderick for all of her hard work.  Tom Roger will be giving a report on the project at the Oct. 12 meeting

·         Dec. 02: Christmas Parade with our float or Bill Baxendell’s shiny sled (truck).

  • The annual Christmas Party has been set for December 7th at the Ramada Inn.  Invitations will be sent out.

 Plan on attending.

What all Lions DO

Lions Clubs – Ready to Help, Worldwide

Whenever a Lions club gets together, problems get smaller. And communities get better. That's because we help where help is needed – in our own communities and around the world – with unmatched integrity and energy.

The World's Largest Service Club Organization

Our 46,000 clubs and 1.4 million members make us the world's largest service club organization. We're also one of the most effective. Our members do whatever is needed to help their local communities. Everywhere we work, we make friends. With children who need eyeglasses, with seniors who don’t have enough to eat and with people we may never meet.

In  India in 1928, Gandhi laid the cornerstone of a school for blind, deaf and disabled students in Ahmedabad. That original building is still in use today. A year and a half ago, I laid the cornerstone for a new building at that school. During my latest trip to India, I was lucky enough to stand beside International President Yamada as he officially opened the new building.

In 1925, Helen Keller challenged Lions to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." And we accepted. Today, sight programs remain one of our defining cause
