July 2023

This is the start of the new Lion year. During the old year (2022-23) two of our caring and active members passed away: Lloyd Connery and Marilyn Indelicato. We are saddened by our loss and that of their families and friends.

We are trying to learn more about the previous lives of our members during dinner meetings — this is a fun and informative time of sharing which we hope to continue.

We also hope to entice new members who wish to serve their community, become part of a like-minded organization, and contribute new ideas. Some of our newest members are starting to organize a pickleball tournament in the next month or two.

There were plenty of Moultonborough Lions to serve the Fourth of July parade marchers and viewers. We cooked hot dogs and hamburgers, served three kinds of salads and chips, and had water, lemonade, and watermelon available.

The attendance at Bingo has been slowly increasing (which means so is the amount of money you can win) as our summer residents learn how much fun it is.

The roadside clean-up along Route 25 in Center Harbor was delayed until Monday, July 31 because of poison ivy along the road and wet conditions from the frequent July rain.
