November 2018 Newsletter

Hello Lioness-Lions,

October saw us busy with maintaining traditions including the first nut sales of the season, hosting the first of the year’s Lioness-Lions scholarship nominees and celebrating the 41st charter year of our club with District Governor Rich Koch joining us.

October also brought us great sadness with the loss of Lion Judy Baum-Hayostek after her brave battle with cancer. She showed us just how graceful and strong she was, and she will be sadly missed by all of us.

West Bend Farmer's Market

On October 6, 2018 the West Bend Lioness Lions had their first Terri Lynn nut sale for this season. We had a booth at the Farmer's Market and had a fun morning even though it was cloudy and cool. Our next sale will be Friday, October 12 at Cedar Ridge. from 9:30 am to 1:00 pm.

October 2018 Newsletter

Hello Lioness-Lions,

Thank you all for a lively and constructive dinner meeting last month. I saw us solve a few problems right on the spot and hope we continue to work so well together.

The October dinner meeting will be busy as it is Charter Night for our club and we begin another year of hosting the high school girls nominated for our scholarships. District Governor, Rich Koch will be joining us as well as the 4 scholarship nominees and their guests.

September 2018 Newsletter

Hello Lioness-Lions,

I am trusting that the joint club picnic was a success during my absence. Thank you, Lion Karen, for volunteering to be our contact person for this event.

Regretfully, Lion Judy has contacted me to resign from her position as our club’s vice president. I know this was a hard decision for Judy and our thoughts will always be with her. She will remain a member and might join us for future dinner meetings. We will begin discussing filling the vice president position at the September 5 board meeting.

August 2018 Newsletter

I can’t believe that I am already writing my 2nd newsletter! This summer is just flying by. I want to thank the Social Committee for arranging a wonderful summer picnic for us at the Linden Inn last month – the location, activities and décor were wonderful. Your efforts to make this a special occasion were obvious.

The West Bend Lions Club thanks all who worked hard to make the corn roast a success.

July 2018 Newsletter

We have just finished up another Lion's year with a very busy month. A butterfly garden was planted, a legacy project was dedicated, new officers were installed, and we had our first Farmer's Market booth. Thank you to all members who helped to make all of this happen .


On June 16 the West Bend Lioness Lions celebrated the Grand Opening of the fishing deck built at Ridge Run Park. The deck was the Legacy Project for our club to celebrate the 100 year birthday of the Lions Clubs International. Using our funds the City of West Bend Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department built the fishing deck.
