TRIVIA:  Last month’s question, “according to a 2020 survey, what is the most common password?”  On November 18, 2020, a password manager organization listed the most common passwords, considered to be the worst of the year.  Leading the list was 123456; followed by 123456789; picture1; password, and
12345678.  Is YOUR password one of them?  Hope not.  Four of the five were cracked by a password searching computer program in less than 1 second, but #3 did take 3 hours.  The October question asks,in April 1996 was occurrence was measured at 253 mph?  Hint, no fatalities were attributed to this event.

*New Collection Location for eyeglasses for recycling is located at St. Theresa Catholic Parish, 1300 Bridge Street, New Cumberland.  Jeff Goas will be the pick-up person.   
*Change of Plans.  The sort & Pack Parties will not be held on meeting nights.  We will return to original plan to hold them separately.  The next scheduled event will be July 17th at the PITS, 9AM. Rain Date is the 24th, same time and place.  The more hands, the quicker the task is completed.  Reminder-a Sort & Pack Party is when we sort used eyeglasses (and hearing aids) for useable ones and pack for delivery to our District who will send to the Virginia location of the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Project for cleaning and to determine actual prescription for ultimate free delivery to persons in USA and overseas who are unable to afford prescription eyeglasses.  
 
TRIVIA:  The June question asked, how many bones in a shark’s body?  The answer, that depends on what or who it had eaten.  Actually, a shark has no bones, a shark has a skeleton made of cartilage and connective tissue.    July’s question is, “in the 1931 gothic fiction movie Frankenstein, what was the full name of that character, and who played that part in the movie”?
 
Ever wonder....why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor, while dishwashing liquid is made with real lemons?  Or why ‘abbreviated’ is such a long word?

Lion Carl Winfield is retiring from our highway clean-up project after 19 years of service.  He founded and chaired the Club’s service project in August 2002. Later Lion Al DiAngelo chaired the project for many years until recently when Lions Tammy Gobbel became the chairperson.  Members can be a part of this community service activity by contacting Lion Tammy.  Lion Carl points out that there are no requirements but suggests that anyone joining the group should be under the age of 86 and be a Lion who wants to follow his oath, “WILL SERVE”

They say money talks, but all mine says is, “Goodbye.”

MEETINGS:  NO IN-PERSON MEETINGS POLICY STILL IN EFFECT.
 
MAY 3:  Zoom meeting 6:30 PM.  Watch for Zoom Meeting Invitation.
 
JUNE 7:  1st Outdoor Meeting at the PITS.  COVID Restrictions (Face Mask & Social Distancing).
 
MAY BIRTHDAYS:  5TH Todd Hostetter, 6th Tammy Gobbel, 25th Charles Johnson
 
ELECTION OF OFFICERS & DIRECTORS:  At the April 5 meeting, the officers, and directors as proposed were unanimously elected by those members casting a write in vote and those attending the Zoom meeting.
 
PANCAKE JUBILEE:  After discussion it was decided NOT to have the usual Pancake Breakfast this year due to the restrictions imposed by the ongoing pandemic and other issues with the availability of the location and alternate consideration for holding it as an outdoor event.  The decision not to hold the event was in the best interest of the public, who supports the event, the sponsors who contribute with donations of both money and supplies.  The promise of the club is to return in February 2022 bigger and better.
 
CLUB ACTIVITY:  [ExpendituresDonation of $200 to Bobby Latham, Camp Hill, a Boy Scout as a contribution towards costs of his civil project of improvements to the trail and a map surrounding the Frederickson Library.  Also $50 for the purchase of a full-page ad in the District 14-C directory.
 
Best Wished from the Club to Shirley Potts for a speedy return to normal activities.
 
PLANNED EVENTS:  In the works for May, Adopt A Highway Project, and our favorite "Sort & Pack Party"   The Highway project is cleaning the area of debris around the 581 entrance and exit ramps at Trindle Road. The sort & pack party is the sorting of eyeglasses and hearing aids to be packed and shipped for grading and categorizing for the Lions International Recycling Program.  Both are outdoor projects, so we need to wait for a nice sunny day.  Watch for a Special Bulletin (maybe a phone call) when the dates are selected.  Be and ACTIVE LION and volunteer to help at one of both.  Both are usually less than 2 hours in the fresh air.
 
TRIVIA:  April question asked for the name of the first James Bond film, the villain and the actor playing the villain.  All James Bond fans know the first James Bond film was Dr No.  The villain was De Julius No, and the actor playing that part was Joseph Wiseman.  The May question is:  What food aided in the production of bombs in World War II?

FROM THE DEN:

NEW PROJECT:  Members need to save Lion Magazines for Lion Carl’s new project, preparing Prospective member kits.

ZOOM Meeting Invitation:  If you are wondering why Jim Donahue keeps inviting you to join a ZOOM meeting, it is not because he has formed his own Lions Club.  Our club purchased a ZOOM License to facilitate conducting club business without meeting in person.  Jim graciously volunteered his time and equipment to schedule the meetings and provide the information necessary to advise membership when and how to join a meeting.

LION Hospitalized:  We have learned that Lion Cook Hostetter has become the club’s first COVID  patient.  Best wishes for recovery.

CHRISTMAS PACKAGES FOR MILITARY:   PDG Denny’s Bell’s project was a success.  Twenty-four packages were packed and sent on their journey to make Christmas away from home a little bit brighter for the recipients.

PANCAKE JAMBOREE:  Postponed from February, future date TBA.

The club’s Christmas Extravaganza had the largest ZOOM participation to date.  A total of 16 joined in the event.

TRIVIA:  Last month the question was the original name for the Seasonal “The Little Drummer Boy”.  There was a bonus question to name the most popular Christmas Carol.

Answer:  Original title was “Carol of the Drum”.  Bonus question, name the most popular Christmas Carol:  Depends who was asked.  The only recognized poll I found was by the New York Library. when in 2016 proclaiming “Deck the Halls” as the most popular.  For February the question is:  As of December 21, 2020, our club has how many Melvin Jones Fellowship recipients?  Current and past secretaries are barred from this question.

Quote:  The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you’ve got to put up with the rain”.  D. Parton

TRIVIA:  Last month’s question; traditionally, how does the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade conclude?  Answer-with the arrival of Santa Claus.  Christmas themed trivia question for December is, what was the original title for The Little Drummer Boy?  OK, its Christmas.  An easy bonus question, what is the most popular Christmas Carol in the United States?

LION RICHARD "DOC" GULDEN, Sr.
on November 10, 2020.

With over 50 years as an active member of the Camp Hill Lions Club, "Doc" was a quite colorful member of our club, often playing the role of a cantankerous coot.  He loved a good joke and was an avid golfer.  He was born one day before Ralph Klinepeter, his high school basketball rival, as we were often reminded.

TRIVIA:   Last month’s question was “what world known structure began construction in 1961?” There are probably several answers that would be a correct answer, but the answer sought is The Berlin Wall. Construction began at midnight 8/12/1961 and completed on 8/13/1961. Over the years it was enlarged and lengthened to more than Berlin, but also a part of East Germany. Destruction began 6/13/90 and was completed November 1991, however there are segments still standing largely used as a tourist attraction and a canvas for graffiti artists. For June, the question is, “on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame, who has the most stars?”

There were 4 Ghosts. The Ghost of Christmas Past, Ghost of Christmas Present and Ghost of Yet To Come, all preceded by the ghost of Scrooge’s former partner Jacob Marley who foretells the coming visits of the other ghosts. This month’s question: What kind of person shall not be honored on a US postal stamp, according to the US postal service and the Citizen’s Stamp Advisory Committee?

CLUB ACTIVITY:

*The fall return to indoor meetings at Perkins Restaurant was a bit different with the largest attendance ever at Perkins, and most of the restaurant’s employees absent.  The evening was calmed with soothing words from our guest speaker District Governor Steve Shipman, who later gave his entertaining program by comparing Lions Clubs to a well-coached football team.

*DG Steve Shipman presented a banner patch for our Partnership in the Four Diamonds program.

*Oooops!  The September issue erroneously posted the birthdays of October birthdays as being September birthdays.  Apologies to Doc Gulden (11th), Ralph Klinepeter (12th) and Jack Potts (15th).   Belated birthday wishes from the Editor.  Oh, by the way the October Birthdays shown above really are October’s.

 *Another donation box for eyeglasses to be recycled has been placed at Geisinger Holy Spring Hospital, Data Center, 431 N. 21st Street, Camp Hill.

TRIVIA:  September’s question asked what distinct feature Pennsylvania share with 3 other states, and who are the other three?   Pennsylvania is one of four commonwealths, the others are Kentucky, Massachusetts and Virginia.  The question for October is:  How many states does the Appalachian Trail pass through?  (extra points if you can name them).  Part 2 what is considered the midpoint of the trail?

The trouble with bucket seats is that not everybody has the same size bucket

October question is:  The USA has 50 individual states.  Of the 50, Pennsylvania is 1 of 4 with a distinct feature.  What is it and who are the other 3?  

Things I learned from watching TV:

  1.  There are Zombies everywhere.

And in his spare time, he attends District and Zone meetings as the club representative.

PANCAKE JAMBOREE:  Another great fund raising project thanks to great help from all who helped from selling tickets, setting up before the breakfast, cooking the sausage and pancakes and preparing beverages, cleaning tables, tearing down after breakfast and cleaning the kitchen and dining room.  A few rough spots due to the move to a different facility, but we can fine tune for next year.  This year’s attendance was up, good sponsor participation, including some new ones, and positive feedback from diners.  Mark your calendars, we booked same place for February 25, 2017.  Members who have not turned in ticket money, please do so as soon as possible so that a full financial report can be given at next meeting.

BEACON LODGE WORK WEEKEND APRIL 8, 9 & 10, 2016:  (The Following is an excerpt from the District Newsletter)

It is very important that the staff at the camp know how many will be attending so that they can order sufficient food and prepare accommodations.  They need to know the exact number to expect.  Please call me by April 1, 2016.   Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.  My phone number is 717-650-2966 and my email is lkbljb@comcast.net.  This weekend will be limited to the first 40 Lions who register.  To register please call me so I can notify the camp the numbers attending this service project.  PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE CAMP!!!

PDG Larry J. Bare – Beacon Lodge Work Weekend Chairman.

CLUB NOTES:  Spring is just around the corner-that means the Borough Recycling Center should be opening soon.  Also the Adopt-A-Highway crew needs to begin looking for their boots, insect repellent and sunscreen.

There are two kinds of fishermen-those who fish for sport and those who actually catch something.
