Volume 3, Issue 3 Club Newsletter November - December 2001

President's Message by Lion Angelo Stefani

Greetings fellow Lions of Nevada:

Thank you for all you do to help achieve the goals of our club and carry out the many projects that benefit the Nevada community and others. As you know, increasing membership is a major goal of our club this year. I encourage you to continue your efforts to contact as many potential new members as possible. We only need four more new recruits to meet this year’s objective of adding five new members. WE CAN DO IT!!! Congratulations to Loren Heckathorne for recruiting our newest member Brad Gerndt.

I received a letter from Dr. Jean Behar, Chairperson of the Lions Clubs International Foundation Board of Trustees expressing gratitude for our generous donation of $1000 to the LCIF World Trade Center/Pentagon Disaster Victims Fund. Our club should feel very proud knowing the donation will have a positive impact on many lives.

If you have ideas on how to improve the newsletter or have information you want included, please contact Jan Whaley or myself.

Sight Night Activity a Success by Lion Jean Bodensteiner

Approximately 65 trick-or-treaters and their families attended the first annual Nevada Lions Club's Sight Night in Gates Hall. Those attending enjoyed the "sight" displays/activities and the free hot dogs, chips and beverages. The first 25 families received "Proud to be American" posters donated by Jim Dandy Office Solutions of Nevada. Several pairs of eyeglasses were collected for recycling to needy families in third world countries.

"Lion" and flag door prizes were won by the following people: Rebekah Niblock, Krystyna Abbott, Ryan Hirst, Christine & Claire Ausman, Brett & Stephanie Gerndt, Alyssa Schaeffer, Katie Scarlett, Nick Ellis and Brooke Walter of Nevada; Tina McLain of Ankeny; Aaron Sampson of Story City; Joey Louis of Ames; and Chloe Davis of State Center.

If you were unable to bring your used glasses on Sight Night, just call 515-382-4547 and leave a message. Arrangements will be made to pick up your used glasses.

Thank you for your attendance and your contributions and we hope to see all of you and many more trick-or-treaters and families NEXT YEAR. Thank you to all of the Nevada Lions members that helped make this event a success especially newest member Brad Gerndt that was the Lion in costume.
