A Little of This and a Little of That

As the Lion year is coming to a close, it's a good time to stop and reflect on the year and to thank your members for all their hard work.

It's a known fact that some Lions have more time to contribute than others.  And that's okay.  But every single Lion needs to be recognized for every little thing they do.  Big or small.

We had our end-of-year party recently.  It was a combination social, award ceremony, and induction of incoming officers.

We ate.  Plenty.

We had a good time.

We laughed.

We ate some more.

Then came the serious part of the evening.... awards and recognition.  Lion Donna presented Lion President Mike Norton with a plaque for his leadership as President from 2013 to 2016 and his service to the community.

Lions were then awarded their 100% Attendance pins.  All members of our club qualified between attending meetings and attending events!

We had several letters (with Chevrons) from International President Yamada recognizing and thanking certain Lions for their years of service:
Lion Bruce Wing:  50 Year Chevron
Lion Ted Quinn:  25 Year Chevron
Donna Hurley:  15 Year Chevron
Lion Sue Bowman, 15 Year Chevron

Congratulations to all!  That's a LOT of service!  

Last, but not least, induction of incoming officers.  We have another great team coming on board!  Great potential to lead, learn, mentor, and work hard.  Our incoming officers are:
Lion Donna Hurley, President
Lion Soapy Lingle, Vice President
Lion Nancy Norton, Secretary
Lion Bob Hurley, Treasurer
Lion Becky Allison, Membership Chair
Lion Tom Dawson, Tailtwister
Lion Susan Albury, 1 Year Director
Lion Mukhya Khalsa, 2 Year Director
Lion Mike Norton, Immediate Past President

Lion Donna Hurley was a little shocked to hear her name after, "Lion of the Year is...."!  Yes, Lion Donna deserved our Club recognition as Lion of the Year!  

It was a good night, with good friends.

We Serve!
Lion Nancy Norton
