President’s message:


1. We are still in the adjustment stage for our new meeting location at Reasner hall, but all seems to be going well.

2. The WCCLP (Western Cumberland County Lions Project) is providing each club with $1,000 to be donated to the Match Madness program. We have chosen to split the money five ways and include $200 to each entity which includes: Christ Among Neighbors (CAN), Civic Club (Community Nurse), Shippensburg Produce & Outreach (SPO), Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition ((SCRC) for Hounds Packs, and Cumberland Valley Rails to Trails. Each of these will be matched by the Partnership for Better Health.

3. The Board approved the creation of a new Assistant Treasurer position. This individual will be responsible for collecting dues and cash receipts and making deposits under the direction of the Treasurer.

4. The Board also approved the sponsoring of a hole at the WCCLP Golf Tournament in the

amount of $100.

5. Contact Lion Galen Burkholder to purchase tickets for the Beacon Lodge Duck Derby. The cost is $5.00 each.
