“Year of the Rabbit”

Happy New Year Lions, Family and Friends!

2023 is the Year of the Rabbit and it is known to be the luckiest of all 12 animals in the Zodiac calendar and represents Kindness & Courage.  In the same way, the Huntington Beach Host Lions also represent Kindness & Courage and I am predicting this will be a great year for Lions and a successful year for all.

What a wonderfully busy month we had in December!  It was our busiest month this year and what a success it was.  We had 16 days of service!  Plus, work, personal stuff, and preparing for the holidays, I just appreciate you all for the support and service. We rocked it this month to say the least.

I want to thank all who came out to our general meeting on December 1st with Guest speakers KC Fockler & Richard Busch from the Huntington/Seal Beach Surfrider Foundation.  What an amazing group and all they do to help protect our beaches and oceans.  They’re out and about educating the community on what we can all do as individuals to help save our oceans and beaches. It is a great grassroots organization, so please check out their website and get involved in our HB Community and support them. The Surfrider Foundation is nominated for the Best of HB Living Green Award.  I hope they win.  We will find out January 12th. Thank you so much KC & Richard for speaking at our meeting and we are looking forward to collaborating with you and supporting HSB Surfrider Foundation any way we can.

What a festive and fun holiday party we had.  Thank you, Lion John Trevennan, for hosting!  So much delicious food and libations.  Lion Bob Proctor pulled out his acoustic guitar so we could sing some holiday songs together. What a great Santa suit Ryan Walters wore, he was best dressed for sure. Thank you so much to all who donated Toys for Tots or pajamas for foster kids or both.  It was so nice to have a party with a purpose and to give to these great organizations. I want to especially thank Lion Liz Kelder and Lion Jen Kelder (a new associate member to HB Lions) for putting together a great party!  We appreciate all you did in making the party special!

I really appreciate all the Lions & Leo’s who volunteered their time and service for our numerous events! Dinner with Santa, pancake breakfast for Santa Anna Lions on the 17th & 24th, pulling the trailer, Robyn’s Nest adopt a student for the holidays, Military bag stuffing & delivering, Lion Scotty’s golf fundraiser, the Leo’s bus to decorate the float, and the Hands In Service Day with Lion’s International President Brian Sheehan. It truly was a busy month and I appreciate all of you and all you do!  I am so proud to be a Huntington Beach Lion, especially with you all.

Wishing you all Health, Happiness, Prosperity and Joy 2023!

Proud to be a Huntington Beach Lion,

Lion Janet Price
HB Lion President

Give your hands to serve and your hearts to love.
