August 2015 Newsletter

The meeting this month will be held at the La Porte City Golf Club on August 20th. This is our annual Lions Club golf tournament meeting and golf will start at 4:30 PM. The social hour will be at 6 PM and the meal at 7 PM. This is a grill your own steak event and the golf club will be providing the food. Callers, we have a new president, please get a hold of Jon Barz @319-415-2055 with your numbers by August 17.

Our next couple of meetings will be held with guests at different locations. Beginning with the September meeting with the Dysart Lions Club. The date for the meeting is Thursday, September 3 and it will be held at the Dysart City Park, starting at 6:30 PM. They will be grilling burgers & brat burgers. The October meeting with the La Porte City Women’s Club. Again, additional details will be forthcoming.

We do have an upcoming event in September. It is the Party in the Park featuring the Iowa State vs. Iowa football game. The Sing Me to Heaven Foundation will be holding a charity auction and we’re looking for other organizations to provide smaller, family-friendly events to add to the main event. The Lions Club will be responsible for providing and cooking hamburgers & brats for attendees. There will be a sign up sheet at our next meeting.

Lastly, you will notice that there is an additional piece of paper with this newsletter. This is the schedule of events for the upcoming year. Please take this, laminate it, get a magnet and hang it on your refrigerator. This is an easy reference for any of our upcoming events and meetings.
