Each of us will one day be judged by our standard of life, not by our standard of living; by our measure of giving, not by our measure of wealth; by our simple goodness, not by our seeming greatness.William Arthur Ward

Please feel free to bring into any meeting or BINGO night the following items to fill baskets and eggs:
*Bagged candy with individually wrapped pieces/snack packs
Per Lion Sheila, we have plenty of eggs, baskets and basket lining grass. Therefore, please avoid buying these particular items.
This is a lifeline for our work and we are struggling every week for workers. Please pass the word onto your friends and family who may be able to help on Friday nights.

Additionally, please note that we have an opening for a BINGO captain. Please speak with Lion Larry Ray if you are interested in finding out more about the position.

As many of you know, in the fall we had several eye screening machines breakdown. In recent months Lion JD has been working with city/state officials to help our organization obtain grants in order for us to purchase new updated machines.
Please let us know if you or a family member is working for a local corporation that is focusing on ‘Well-Being’ or ‘Community Involvement’. It has been noted that there is a large shift in corporations switching a focus onto their employees belonging to their communities. With that said, please share with the club any information you may have about grants that are being offered by a local company that is focused on our type of charity work in the community. Additionally, please ask friends and family members that may work at other companies in the area to see if their employer has any grants that we can research and submit an application.
Lion Smitty and Lion Sara are always happy to accept donations to assist in funding Camp Crescendo. Anyone can help by dropping off cans, ink cartridges and old mobile phones for recycling. These items and any cash donations can be dropped off during any club meeting or Friday night BINGO. All proceeds raised from donations will be forwarded to the camp to assist with expenses. Please note that Smitty and Sara are always happy to talk about their camp experiences. So feel free to speak with them directly for more information regarding the wonderful camps provided each year to the kids.
Although February 8th was a chilly evening, we still had a nice turnout for the dance and were able to raise little over $1,600.00. The committee would like to thank all our club members who donated various items for the food buffet. Additionally, Lion Julie would like to give a special thanks to the committee members who assisted with the organizing, setup, and running of the dance.
We are happy to announce that the Jasper Benefit was a success! The food was wonderful and the crowd was steady throughout the day. A special thanks goes out to the club members who organized the event. Additionally, we appreciate the participation of our YA Coaches and particularly our club members, Lion Larry, Lion Allan, Lion John Tomlinson, Lion Paul and Lion Josh for taking part in the fashion show. At the end of the evening Lion Larry was crowned King Hot Stuff after collecting the most donations during his time on the catwalk. If you were unable to attend the benefit, don’t worry, there were plenty of pictures taken by club members!
