Kuna Lions Club's 45th Charter Party was held Saturday evening with a western theme and prizes for everyone! Lions and guests were decked out in boots and hats, served a hearty meal, and treated to a game of "horse" (bingo) in which everyone was a winner. New officers were introduced, awards were handed out, Council Chair Laura Wells represented the Multiple District, and everyone went home happy. What could be better? Photos, of course!
Strides: Lions Walk for Diabetes Awareness was held today for the first time in the Treasure Valley (last year the Lions held the walk in Sun Valley). The 3K walk along the green belt in Eagle started at a chilly 9:00 am with about 35 Lions, Leos, and community members briskly walking or jogging along the river. Lions District 39W was the sponsor and proceeds benefited Camp Hodia. Walk with Walgreens and the Eagle Walgreens provided literature and pedometers, Treasure Valley Hearing and Balance brought goodie bags, Idaho Independent Bank, Star Branch, provided snacks.
The Strides Walk takes place in hundreds of cities around the world to raise awareness of diabetes prevention and the healthful benefits of walking. Hopefully this walk will grow in the Treasure Valley (and expand to the Magic Valley) in the coming years. Robin Jara and her committee did a great job organizing the event.
It's election time for Lions club. New officers should be reported to LCI no later than May 15.
Many Lions don't want to step up to leadership roles in their clubs, thinking it takes too much time or they don't know what to do. Lions International is helping out with webinars this spring that will prepare Lions for their roles as club officers.
Secretaries can learn how to input membership and activity reports. Treasurers can learn how to pay bills online and learn the responsibilities of being the club treasurer. In another webinar, officers can learn about working together as a team.
The secretary webinar is scheduled for April 24, April 27, and May 2. The treasurer session is set for May 9, May 15 and May 18. Officers can learn team work June 6, 12, or 15, just in time for the new Lions' year. Check for times and more information at this link.
