LIONS CORN BOOTH AT THE MONROE FAIR CLOSES

After many years of operating our Lions Corn Booth, it has fallen victim to deteriation of the booth itself, difficulty in recruiting volunteers to man the booth, and new rules and regulations, it was decided to end our long standing relationship with the Fair. We wish to thank the many thousands of Fair patrons who supported us and enjoyed  that fresh corn on the cob.

GUEST COMMENTARY

By Victor C. Harris / For The Herald

One hundred years ago on May 20, 1920, 37 service-minded men started Everett Central Lions Club. This was only the 79th Lions Club in the U.S. and the first club in the Northwest. (Today, there are over 48,000 clubs) The man spearheading the new club was an leader who will be remembered. His name was Lew V. Day, manager of Everett’s Penney’s store. In 1925 he was selected to become company vice president in New York.

You may also know us as the organization that collects used eyeglasses. Lions were challenged to be the “Knight’s Of The Blind” by Helen Keller in her crusade against darkness. She became Lions’ first woman member.Today, Everett Central Lions Club is still serving the community and always looking for men and women who want to help. We serve with projects that include fighting hunger, rewarding community service, supporting youth programs, providing disaster relief, encouraging children’s reading, park development and of course, vision causes.

As Everett Central Lions begins another 100 years of community service we thank the public
for support. Lions Clubs International has grown to become the world’s largest service organization
and Everett Central Lions Club will continue to grow in purpose and committment to serve.

The Lions motto is WE SERVE. The pandemic forced us to move our 100th anniversary celebration and the visit of our international president, Dr. Jung-Yul Choi to Nov. 7. For more information about Everett Central Lions contact Art Ruben at since1965@aol.com.

Victor C. Harris is president of the Everett Central Lions Club.

Ed has served with distinction for the last two years. Thank you Ed for your dedication and service. Lee's term began July 1 and is a one year term with option for a second year.

If we don't have an answer for a particular issue, we have the resources to get the answer. Please join me in wishing Lee well.
