Hello Fellow Meadville Lions,


Welcome to Spring! Even though we did not seem to have had as rough a winter as some in the past, it certainly feels good to see the Spring flowers beginning to appear and the trees beginning to bud and bloom.

April 1 is a special day for many and I have fond memories of my childhood when we regularly celebrated April Fool's Day. My Dad was famous for some of the tricks he played on us. One of my favorites was the time that he came in from the barn when we were having breakfast and had us convinced that there was something special in the barn that we should come to see. He had gone to a lot of effort to put our work horse mare (who was probably 20 years old at the time) into a special box stall with fresh straw and led us to believe there was a new foal. Imagine our disappointment when he called out “April Fool's Day”. Even Burger King had a little fun back in 1998 when they advertised a “Left-Handed Whopper”. Scores of clueless customers requested the fake sandwich! :) I hope that all of you had fun and properly celebrated this fun day!


It's no joke that we have a busy month ahead of us. In addition to our regularly scheduled meetings, there are other meetings that we can and should attend.

Some of the highlights are the Orientation Meeting on April 9 that PDG Dave Hollern is organizing.

The District 14-F Convention on April 16 will be an opportunity to learn, grow and enjoy the fellowship of fellow Lions in our district.

Finally, Dinner in the Dark on April 30 will be a wonderful opportunity to see how many of the funds and efforts of our club are being rewarded. We'll have the chance to meet some people who are blind and are being helped by having a Leader Dog for the Blind.

Let me urge each member to pitch in and do your part to help with the many worthwhile projects that we sponsor.


Thanks from your King Lion!
