Lions and Laughs

Mark the date on your calendar-September 8th!

If you missed hearing comedian Richie Holliday last year at Star's Charter Party, you have a second chance!  This year, Richie is performing for Lions and future Lions at a Fundraiser/Membership Drive event at the Bull's Head Pub in Meridian.  Doors open at 6:30 pm.

This is an event for all Lions to attend and bring a potential member-you all know that one person who would make a great Lion but either you don't know how to ask them or they are just a little reluctant?  This is the perfect opportunity to introduce them to Lions in a fun, social atmosphere. There will be Lions literature and applications available and lots of Lions to answer questions or just mingle with.    

As for the fundraiser part, proceeds will be donated to the Lions Sight and Hearing Foundation.  Advance tickets are $8.00, and at the door, it will cost you $10.  All tickets include one free drink!  You can get your advance tickets by contacting Lion Kathy or from DG Pat.

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!

The challenge-sending kids to winter camp

Times are tough.  Budget cuts are looming around around the state of Idaho as the legislature begins its session.  I'm not getting on a soapbox about where the money should or should not be spent in Idaho, but I want to bring to your attention a potential shortfall that would affect some folks near and dear to the hearts of Lions-the students at the Idaho School for the Deaf and Blind .  Each winter the school sponsors a winter camp for kids.  Additional funds that may be needed this year would cover transportation and lodging costs of kids going to camp.  The money in jeopardy amounts to about $2,300.  Let's see....50 clubs in 39W.....$2,300......that's less than $50 per club....it seems obvious....  The Challenge The Star Lions Club has pledged $100 (through club and individual donations) to help with the transportation costs to send the kids to camp.  They are issuing a challenge to the other clubs of District 39W to pledge at least $50 for this cause.   "Alon
