Lions Mary Lou and Sue went to the meet and greet with the International President Bob Corlew on Oct. first .He Inducted 6 new members and spoke about how membership in other parts of the world is really growing. Through our service reports they have calculated that each Lion touches the lives of 70 people each year, or 6 people a month. Be aware of those times we are helping people see if it is 6 people a month. He also announced that Lions International has been nominated for next year's Nobel Peace Prize!

Thank you to all who helped at German fest. We survived another year. Sorry to say profits were not as good as years past, due to the changes with the committee and the way Habitat ran the event. It is not as bad as I thought it would be but am waiting for all final bills. I should have the report done by the dinner meeting.

With German fest behind us we will be moving forward with planning the fish fry fund raiser. Proceeds will go toward the Ridge Run Park fishing pier.

Summer birthday people reminder-- bring your gifts for the raffle to the September meeting.
