Thoughts From Your
As we pass the mid-way point in our year, we should reflect back on our
accomplishments and look to what lies ahead. At the Mid-Winter Conference we
presented $18,000.00 to support state and international charities. The first three
years that I was a member of the Lions Club, we didn't even accumulate that much
profit in total. Our projects have been extremely successful and improving every year.
Our membership has grown from 35 in 1996 to 72 thus far this year. We have an
abundance of dedicated members who are willing to help others. "We Serve".
We have reached a crossroads and are now contemplating another new event. The auction and memorabilia project.
A good number of our membership is involved in this new project and have dedicated themselves to making it a success.
They need each and every Lion member’s help in selling tickets for this event. Those of us who have been around long enough
remember the infant stages of our car raffle and duck race projects. We're hoping that with everyone’s help, the auction and memorabilia
event will be as successful as those two projects have been. We have nothing to lose!!! I would like to once again re-iterate that
ALL members of the club are welcome to attend board meetings and voice their opinions on any of the issues we discuss. Please come
and experience the inner working of your Newtown Lions Club.
