Well, Labor Day is now here which means the end of our furniture sales for this season. We had a good year and the details will be passed on to the membership of the Club as soon as they are available. Our inventory was getting down considerably as we approached the end of the season, but that changed the last week of August as we were able to get a considerable amount from Telescope that week. In the span of six days, we had six truckloads that needed to be unloaded. I would like to thank all members who joined me and were able to lend a hand on at least a couple of trucks if not more. Lions Ron, Doc, Bill, Al, Walt, Gordon, and I definitely got a workout. Our Club should be in pretty good shape as far as furniture next May and we still have some more on order.


We had our last BODs meeting at Lion Molly’s house on August 20th and I would like to thank her so much for hosting it and for all the time and expense she put in and the delicious food she provided.


Our first Dinner Meeting of this year will be at the West Main Grille on September 3rd at 6:00 for social and 6:30 for dinner. If you have not notified Molly yet, please let her know, either way, as soon as possible.


I ask all members to review the Committee List so you know what committees you are on. If you have any questions on your duties, please let me know. During this year we will be asking committees to update the Club, usually at Dinner Meetings, on their activities.


The Annual Granville Lions Club and Foundation financial reports for last year  will be emailed to all members in the near future.


Our BODs have decided that the Club will participate in the Annual Granville Village Tractor Parade on December 13th Lions Elaine and Molly have taken the reins for the planning and if anyone has any ideas or suggestions on how to decorate the float, please get in touch with Elaine or Molly. Also, if you would like to help or ride along, please let them know that as well.


District 45’s Annual LCIF Super Raffle will be at the Hampton Inn in Colchester on Saturday November 9th in conjunction with the regularly scheduled Fall Conference and Cabinet Meeting. Each ticket purchased up to Saturday November 2nd will include Dinner for Two. The cost is $150 each with insurance and the proceeds are used for District 45 and LCIF. Anyone interested in purchasing a ticket, please let Molly or me know.


I would like to thank all the members who stepped up and volunteered for Furniture Sales over the Labor Day weekend. Lions Molly, Elaine, Jim Peterson, Roger and I covered Friday. Lions Molly, Elaine, Jim Peterson, Ron, Walt, Janice and I covered Saturday. With the new furniture and pretty good traffic, we had a very successful weekend. Again, thanks to all who gave up part of the Holiday Weekend.


We will be having a Ribbon Cutting of the Greater Granville Food Pantry on October 5th at noon. This will be a big event for the Granville Lions, the Food Pantry, and the people of the Granville area. Invitations are being sent to all the Community leaders, charitable clubs, politicians, newspapers, TV stations, and the residents of Granville. We would like to have as many Lion members at the ribbon cutting as possible. You all were instrumental in raising the money that enabled us to buy the building for the Food Pantry and we are hoping this event will generate interest in the Lions Club and hopefully get us a few new members.


For those attending our September 3rd Dinner Meeting, you are advised to wear something with the color red in it in anticipation of the maple leaves that soon will be turning.
