Lions,
I hope that this email finds you all still well and getting some long forgotten projects completed around the home and garden.  With Spring starting to take shape our world is changing but is still moving forward. 
Gathering all the information from proven sources and experts I have decided to cancel our April meetings at this time.  Brad will take care of our speakers, as he has done for awhile now, and the rest of us can make plans as needed.  This does not come easily but I believe is in the best interests of our members and community. 
As always, if you have any questions or thoughts please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.  Thanks for your understanding and if you need some help or assistance please reach out as well. 
 
Take care of yourselves,
Patrick Olsen, President


Lions Annual Easter Egg Hunt Suspended

May 14, 2020 -- Out of an abundance of caution, the Easter Egg Hunt originally scheduled for April 12 has been postponed.          The Lions Club is working on a new date for this summer.


March 12, 2020

Leavenworth Lions,
    I am sure that you are keeping current on the Coronavirus outbreak. At this time I am cancelling the meeting on March 19th and will let you know next week about the meetings in April.  We are taking this step proactively to try and keep all of our members, but certainly our older members that seem to be more susceptible to the virus, safe.
    We are also currently having the conversation about whether to cancel our annual Easter egg hunt or suspend it to a later date.  We will update you with any other news that we have and changes in our service schedule. 
    If you need help and/or are not sure on upcoming dates & times please check our Facebook page as Conrad updates it rapidly with information.  Please feel free to contact myself or other board members with questions as well. 
    Thank you for all that you do for Leavenworth Lions and the community.  I urge you to please protect yourself by following CDC guidelines on hand-washing as well as cleaning hard surfaces that people may touch.  Please take care of yourselves and your families. 

Patrick Olsen, President

In 1925, Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become "Knights of the Blind". Since that day, Lions clubs throughout the world have been involved in helping the visually and hearing impaired.
