The summer is now drawing to an end and it is time for the September addition of
the King Lion’s Korner.
I want to thank everyone who helped with the Fair Project. It takes many hands and
hard work for a project of this magnitude and I thought we brought home another successful
The winners of the prizes were; Lisa Danielczyk who won the grill, David Rutkowski
who won the swing and Brett Peterson who won the gas card.
Our final tally was $1,742.00 for fair raffle tickets, $5,540 for Harley tickets
and $621.00 in brooms or a total of $7,903 in sales. We invested 239 worker hours
at the fair. Please if you have any suggestions on how we could improve the fair
let me know and we will note it for next year.
The Meadville Lions do more then sell raffle tickets to raise money for needy causes.
If you get a chance visit the Crystal Run Leader Puppy Face Book page. On it you
will find our District Governor Gene Shelhamer, IPDG Tom Owen, PDG Scott Ladner and
yours truly taking the Ice Bucket Challenge with monies going to ALS and Leader Dog.
Yes the bucket was full of ice water and it was COLD.
Lion Sharon and I will miss the board meeting this month as we will both be going
to the US Canada Lions Leadership Forum in San Juan. This is one of the best kept
secrets of Lionism. There are great seminars and the motivational speakers are some
of the best in the business. On our return we will give you a full report on what
we have learned.
In September we also will be attending the Region 2 combined Zone Meeting as a club
visitation on the 18th of September and the Jamestown Steak Fry Sept 22nd which is
not to be missed as they have the best steaks in the District.
One event I would like to try this year as a fun event is a progressive dinner. If
you are unfamiliar with pro-gressive dinners you move from house to house having
hors d'oeuvre at one house and progress through separate dinner courses at different
houses. This can be a fun time and a chance for Lions to try out that recipe they
have been saving for a rainy day.
Some of our upcoming projects will be White Cane in October,
Terry Lynn in November and December and the Lions Blood Drive sometime in November.
One final thought please keep Lion Herb Lucas in your prayers as he is still suffering
from the blood clot in his lung.
