Raffle sales: we are having two in September on the 3rd and the 24th. Let’s support this effort to fundraise for scholarships and other community service projects.
VISION SCREENING: President Mark has been busy contacting schools and creating a schedule for us to screen school children in the Lakes Region. On September 12, six Lions (Mark, John, Sally, Peter and Kathy Allen, and Don) spent the morning at Gilford Elementary School. We screened 339 children and four adults in two and a half hours with the fantastic spot screener shown below…
On Friday, September 23 Mark Cotrupi, Kathy Allen, and Don Trudeau once again performed vision screening at Moultonborough Academy during Picture Day.
On Saturday, September 10, twelve of us had a fun time playing mini-golf at the Community Caregivers Fundraiser event. Three Moultonborough Lions even got a hole-in-one each. Of course, we did not score well enough to win a trophy, but the important thing was contributing to a good cause and the camaraderie of our TWO TEAMS.
Fall cleaning of our newly adopted cabin at Camp Pride on
Saturday, September 17.
Four Lions — Lloyd Conery, Mark Cotrupi, Jeni Williams, and Dawn Law (with her husband, Steve) — spent the morning painting the exterior trim, cleaning out the gutters, polyurethaning half the floor, as well as cleaning the windows and screens. They also took down the curtains to replace them next spring. Dawn is pointing to the window cleaning can which was donated by Paul Atwell of WURTH.
At the Dinner Meeting on September 19th we enjoyed a delicious chicken parmesan meal. The speaker, Moultonborough Academy student, Matt Anderson, engaged us all by talking about his trip to Normandy and showing slides of his trip there with his history teacher and the week before, researching in DC. Matt researched a NH soldier who was buried in Normandy. HIs contest essay (relating why he loves history so much) was judged one of the top 15 in the US and was what earned him this honor and experience.
