Lions Den of thieves...

I've been searching around for something to blog about this week and today was emailed a bit of interesting information. It seems the Vallivue Lions are at it again.

Back in October, several members of the Vallivue Lions visited the Star charter party and made off with a  framed award that had just been presented by VDG Pat.  They demanded that a Star Lion or 2 visit their club to retrieve the certificate.  Star Lions played along.  VDG Pat printed a replacement award, and he and a few Star Lions made the trek to the Vallivue Lions Den with the "fake" award for laughs and a pie to exchange for the original award.

Last week, some Vallivue Lions (probably the same suspects?) attended the Midvale charter party and absconded with a couple of items, pictured below.   All they are asking this time is that Midvale Lions return the favor and come to the Vallivue charter party, tentatively scheduled for May 22.  (A quick check of the calendar shows May 22nd to be very busy...)

All I can say is that Vallivue better have everything nailed down!

How did such a large lion find its way to Vallivue?

Who, me? 


  1. Vallivue Lions have confirmed that their Charter Party is May 22, probably around 6:30 or 7:00.

  2. I am glad to see the Vallivue Lions getting out and about and having some fun!! Maybe their efforts will get some of the other clubs out visiting each other, not to "borrow" club property, but to visit and share ideas. Go Vallivue!!

Who parks all those cars?

Every now and then, but not nearly often enough, someone brings a great Lions club event or project to my attention.  Today I want to pass along a project that's been going on for 48 years. Since 1965 the Twin Falls Lions Club has been parking cars at the Twin Falls County Fair.  This involves a lot more than just directing traffic.  It begins with 12 acres of pasture that the Lions section off into rows for parking and lanes for driving.  They pound steel posts into the ground for markers,  direct cars where to park, and attend the lot throughout the 6 day fair. But it's not over until the lot is cleaned up and restored to its original condition, 10 days after they drove in the first stake. It somehow doesn't look like all work and no play! Congratulations to PDG Don Rahe who has been the Fair Parking Chairperson for the last 10 years for another successful project!

A few of my favorites things...about USA/Canada Forum

So why do I like going to the USA/Canada Forum, besides the "fun" time traveling and the keynotes?  It's the Lions!  Each lunch or dinner you are seated by colors, so it's doubtful that you'll be sitting with people you know.  Two lunches+2 dinners with tables set for 10-that's the opportunity to spend a couple of hours with 36 Lions.  Time to attend 7 seminars, seated at tables with at least 8 others-that's 49  Lions.  You have the opportunity to meet 85 Lions, give or take, from all over the USA and Canada.  Alaska, California, Oklahoma, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Texas, Wyoming, Utah, Hawaii, New Mexico-just some of the places Lions were from that I had a chance to talk to.  And learn from From a shooting range in Utah (reported by the lone participant from that state), to owning and running an ambulance service in Connecticut, Lions have some amazing projects!  And it seems all the clubs have similar projects-vision testing, picking up litter,
