Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. On Sunday, the 15th of November, five Moultonborough Lions — Pat Strickland, John Menken, Peter Strople, Sally Sibulkin and Jeni Williams — attended the 44H District Meeting at Pheasant Ridge Country Club. There were many committee reports and interesting news presented, along with an ample and enjoyable brunch buffet. These meetings happen four times a year. If other Lions are interested in attending please let us know. And think about attending the Multiple District Annual Mid-Winter Convention to be held in Nashua at the end of January. You can register until mid-January. See Jeni or Sally if you a
On Friday, December 4 6 Lions and 1 member of the Women’s Club decorated the Club for Christmas. Seven pairs of hands and willing workers enabled us to complete the decorating in one hour. (Remember, we will need people to help take down the decorations as well!)
The dinner meeting this month will be the annual Christmas get-together with the Women’s Club. Good food (baked ham), good entertainment, and good fellowship. Please note that it will be held on Monday, December 14, starting at six with a hospitality hour. Bring an UNWRAPPED item for the raffle table.
Holiday Fair Lions Club Events
And Lions were busy on Saturday, December 5 as well. We had six people (Joe and Pat Keegan, Bob and Betty Purdy, John Menken, and Bob Zewski doing the last of the raffle sales. This was the culmination of five other days of sales in front of Heath’s Supermarket and a large scale mailing. Thanks to the efforts of many Lions, we managed to net almost $12,000 to be used for scholarships. This is after the prize money was given and after expenses.
And during that same Holiday Fair Mark Cotrupi, Sally Sibulkin, Jeni Williams and John Menken held vision screenings. The youngest child screened was 8 months old (and we were too polite to ask the age of the oldest person).
