Volume 5, Issue 2 Lions Club Newsletter Winter 2006

President's Message

My Fellow Lions,

It's time for our quarterly newsletter from our Lion's Club. We have been busy this fall & winter and now it's 2006!

We had Sight Night on October 26 at the Memorial Lutheran Church. The "Trunk and Treat Night" had an excellent response from Nevada families. I would like to thank Lion Jean Bodensteiner for picking the gifts for the drawing; Lion Susan Radke for picking up the candy and decorating the trunk of her car; Lion Paul Malsom for portraying our Club mascot and picking up the film for pictures with the Lion. The kids enjoyed having their pictures taken with the 'Lion.' I would, also, like to extend a heartfelt 'thank you' for everyone who helped make this such a success.

November we finished up the ISU Football Games taking tickets. The last game of the season added an extra bit of excitement with a tornado just before game time. We all had to take cover. This normally is something we just wouldn't expect in November. In total, we earned $1,542. Thanks to Lion Willy Morfitt for organizing the sign up and everyone who was able to work the games.

In December we had our Christmas Party/Spouse Night. We had a very good crowd. Margaret Crane provided a first-rate meal, while the tail twisters organized an outstanding program.

We received $1,400 from the Argyll Thompson Memorial. The gift was presented by Warren Pitcher.

Please welcome our newest Lion -- Bob Hunter.

Upcoming events in the New Year include the Soup Supper at the Nevada High School, the District 9 x 7 Convention on February 24 - 25, and the Pancake Breakfast March 19, 2006.

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year!!

  Lion John Wheelock, Nevada Lions President

Kudos to Lion Willy Morfitt for organizing workers for the ISU football games.

Since 1917, Lions clubs have offered people the opportunity to give something back to their communities.

Over 1.35 million members in more than 46,000 clubs in 196 countries and geographical areas!

Our motto is "We Serve."
Please contact us if you have any suggestions for community projects or needs.

We need community minded people in our club. Men and women 18 and older are eligible. Explain what Lions Clubs do and explain the cost of membership.
