We welcome our newest member Lion Jeffrey Oberlin to the Kernersville Lions Club. Jeff is an 8th grade teacher at Southeast Middle School. His sponsor is Lion Ken Ringeman

The Kernersville Lions Club presented two $1500 scholarships to recent graduates from East Forsyth and Glenn High Schools. Syndey Watson from EFHS was presented a check at the May 25th meeting at First Christian Church. And Jarah Gonzalez from GHS was presented a check at the same meeting. Congratulations to these fine young scholars and to our Scholarship Comittee for an outstancing job. No application was received from Walkertown High School.

Camp Dogwood chair Debbie Sabo says for you to mail in your $30 for your 3 books of CD tickets NOW! Otherwise, she will have to send cousin Quido from Detroit to see you. And she will fill out the tickets for you. Mail your check to Treasurer, POB 1601, 27285.

Lion Crissy Tanner is chairing a committee to re-evualate/revamp the Spring Folly food booth. They are looking at cost containment, reducing manpower and equipment while also maximizing our profits. More details to follow.                                                                             

A big 'thank you' to Lion Jo Crowley, who stepped up to take over as Program Chair from Lion Mark Schulte, who has held the position for several years. Thanks Lion Mark for a job well done! If you know of an interesting program, please contact Program Chair Jo Crowley with particulars so he can schedule them. 

We have Lions Club collection boxes at the following locations through out the Kernersville and Walkertown areas to collect cell phones, hearing aids and eye glasses. The Lions listed beside the location have agreed to pickup collected items periodically and bring to Lion Bob Cappel for transport to Camp Dogwood. If a new box is needed, please let Secretary Marvin Bare know ASAP. Lion Larry Martin has some new smaller boxes for collecting eye glasses. If you want to replace a larger one with a smaller one, please contact him.
