November 2022

The weather decided to get more fall-like and got us thinking about the holidays ahead.

On Monday, the 7th we did our before-the-snow-comes roadside clean up along the Center Harbor section of Route 25 and picked up 27 bags of trash. Fortunately, the morning we did this was one of the last warm days.

At the business meeting we voted to purchase $500 of items on the CHad wish list. We ordered sensory items, mainly for infants and toddlers which were on the list provided by Playopolis. The children should be receiving them soon.

Two members were given honors during both the October dinner meeting and the November business meeting:

Melvin Jones Fellowship (the highest award in Lionism) to Sally Sibulkin

and the Lion of the Year Award to Karen Baron

At our dinner meeting, we were very pleased to have Scout Master Ben Fullerton and three Boy Scouts from the troop we sponsor. They spoke about how Covid affected scouting and how the Cub Scouts now has girls as members. We also learned that our Scout troop has members from all the areas our club services. We are hoping to see some more Eagle Scouts in the next coupe of years.

Our major fundraiser, the raffle for a $5,000 prize is drawing to a close. Lions have put in well over 100 hours folding letters, stamping envelopes, stapling tickets, and putting on postage for ALMOST 6,000 letters. We had to have two different dates for assembling all the parts and the last batch went out on November 14. If you haven’t received your tickets in the mail yet, come to the Moultonborough Central School Holiday Fair on Saturday, December 3 to purchase them either outside the school or inside. The winning tickets will be selected at 1pm!
