November Meeting

The November meeting will be on November 17th at the VFW/Legion in La Porte City. Social hour will start at 6:00 p.m., meal at 7:00 p.m. We are excited to have two speakers this month. Superintendent Travis Fleshner will be bringing the foreign exchange student from the high school to do a brief presentation. Also, getting ready to gear up for the holiday season, Lion Judd has contacted Niki Litzel, Community Outreach Coordinator with the Salvation Army to speak. Michellle Oldfather will be preparing our Thanksgiving meal for us. Callers, please have your numbers to Heather (319-404-1274) by Monday, November 14th. Come and be prepared for a great meeting!

Festival Update

The Festival Committee and Parade Committee continue to meet and make plans for next year’s Festival of Trails. An update will be provided at the November meeting. It’s hard to believe that while we are eating our Thanksgiving meal, we are also pondering new and fun ideas for the festival while still reminiscing with our family about how amazing this last festival was. If you haven’t already (which why didn’t you???-lol) please make sure the 2017 Festival dates are on your calendar.

Eyeglasses Donation

There has been a donation that was made for eyeglasses. Lion Keegan will be sharing more information about this and a partnership that a business in Waterloo is willing to work with us on. “New” Position within our Club:


“The name Lions stands not only for fraternity, good fellowship, strength of character and purpose, but above all, its combination of L-I-O-N-S heralds to the country the true meaning of citizenship: LIBERTY, INTELLIGENCE, OUR NATION’S SAFETY.”

Salvation Army Bell Ringing

We will be ringing the bell for Salvation Army on December 16th and December 17th. Sign up sheets will be available at the November meeting. Please take a time slot as this does a lot of good for a little bit of your time.


As we continue to serve our community, one of the ways we can do that, is to continue to grow our club. So I ask you, and challenge you to think of new people that you can introduce to the Lions Club. Bring them to a meeting, encourage them to join. Who will you bring?
