Submitted by Jerry Flenar, Written by Alice Kring
Happy Thursday Fellow Lions!
April is a month to celebrate Volunteerism! As Lions our Motto is “We Serve” we are all volunteering almost daily. But each and every one of us deserves to be appreciated for everything we do in our daily lives to help make our world, our community and our club better. THANK YOU!
Our club was honored a lot at the District Convention last Saturday with the following awards, District Peace Poster winner, District Leo Club of the Year (second year in a row), District Club of the Year and our own Lion Mark Tumbleson won District publicity/newsletter editor of the Year. We also were honored for 100% participation for the districts projects. I was so proud of our club because we continued to grow and serve our community year after year. Thank you to each member for your dedication you give the club, because it does make a difference in a lot of ways.
