November is here and the year is going fast. Great weather for chili and homemade soup! It is also going to be a busy month as we get into selling our Terri-Lynn nuts and candy.
I would like to thank everyone for all the help with the lights and Christmas decorations for downtown Meadville. They are nearly finished and look beautiful! A HUGE thank you to Herb Lucas and Mary Lynne Peters for countless hours and time spent on this project. The lights will be going up on November 17th. There will be a yummy spaghetti dinner at Post 52 after for our club, Windstream, Armstrong Cable workers, and the City of Meadville Department. We are also inviting Newell’s, who did all the powder coating, Vo-Tech students and teacher in the Welding Department, and Weber Electric front desk staff for all the help given. Please come and help thank everyone for the help they have given us to complete our Centennial Legacy Project. Terri-Lynn sales will begin at Valesky’s and Tractor Supply the first Friday and Saturday in November and continue through December 17th. We need all members to help with this project as it will bring a lot of money for our community service projects. Get out now and fill your orders early before the product is gone. We are only doing one shipping of product so once it is gone, it is gone. See PDG Dave or Lion Larry for scheduling times to work. Thank you to all who helped with White Cane last month. We took in $186.63 at Walmart and $250.75 at Valesky’s for a grand total of $437.38. Great job everyone!
Don’t forget, Saturday, Dec 3, we will be ringing the bell for Salvation Army at Walmart from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sign up with PDG Dave. This is a community service project we do every year and it makes you feel good about the generosity of the citizens of Meadville. Hope for a nice sunny day that isn’t too cold. November 5th is the Cabinet meeting in Union City. Meeting starts at 9:00 A.M. at the American Legion, US-6 in Union City. Lunch will follow the meeting, then a New Member /Refresher program for Lions, Lioness, and Leos will follow. Cost of lunch is $10.00. If you would like to carpool let PDG Dave know.
The second meeting this month will be our Thanksgiving Day meal with DG Bernadette Holzer visiting from Tionesta. Be thinking of this and please let me know early if you will be attending and if there are any guests coming with you. Gina likes to know well ahead of time and she will be giving me a call soon to tell me when she wants to know by.
December 7th is the trip on the Barbara J around Conneaut Lake. Not too late to sign up. Remember to think of family, friends or co-workers you might want to bring along with you.
I think that is about all for now. Hope everyone had a great weekend.
