October 2014 Newsletter

Our next meeting is our annual joint meeting with the LPC Woman’s Club and will be held on MONDAY, OCTOBER 20, 2014 at the LPC Golf Club. Social begins at 5:30 p.m. with meal at 6:30 p.m. Please note the different date and time. The Woman’s club is hosting and this is their regular meeting night, so we agreed to change our date for October only. The meal will consist of cooked pork, potatoes, salad, roll and desert. Speaker will be Dr. Linda Allen, President of Hawkeye Community College. Dr. Allen plans to update our clubs about Hawkeye Community College and share her vision for the future of the institution. Should be very informative and interesting. Please plan to attend. I need dinner counts by Friday, October 17th please.
Planning continues for the Festival of Trails 2015. There will be another planning meeting at 8:00 p.m. , Tuesday, October 21, 2014. We are in the process of discussing and finalizing a new way for businesses and individuals to contribute toward the festival. We would welcome anyone who would like to offer their ideas/opinions regarding the festival.

We want to reminder all Lions that we have several fundraising opportunities coming up in the next few months. Our annual Waffle breakfast is coming in December; the annual Trivia tournaments in January and February and our 2 soup lunches coming in February and March. We need everyone to pitch in to make these events a success. Please say yes when asked to help!

Thanks for your support in our community. Hope to see you at the next meeting!
