March 2019 Newsletter

Hello Lioness-Lions,

Hope everyone is surviving this artic winter. Six of our members attended District Convention last month in Port Washington. We learned more about the cancer-fighting Flow Cytometer machine that Wisconsin Lions stepped up and helped fund last fall. We were inspired by speeches from Jon McGlocklin, President of the MAAC Fund and Joe Dean. Joe Dean has written a children’s book about childhood cancer titled “My Dog Named Hope”. Our club has purchased a copy of the book and it will be added to the West Bend Library’s collection. We were all inspired to carry on the Lion’s vision.
