It is time to give thanks and appreciate others as we enter the season of Christmas. Being a Lioness means exactly that. I am proud to be a part of such a wonderful group that strives to help others in need. Please keep in mind that as we continue to help others, we need to appreciate the ones that also help us.
“To be careful with my criticism and liberal with my praise; to build up and not destroy.”

November 2015 Newsletter

All the projects for William and Moose are completed and have gone well. Lion Mary Lou has advised me that Moose is almost paid for. Good job to all of us that helped make that possible. There will be a Meet and Greet at Texas Road house on November 23 from 5:00pm to 7:30pm to meet Moose. All are welcome and if you stay to eat 10% of the bill will go to Moose. This will probably cover the approximately $300 left to go.
