Ruth Meth reports the Olds Lions Club met March 11, at the Olds United Church of Christ. District Governor Fred Stark was a special guest. Dinner was a potluck meal with a main entrée provided by Lion Monte Kann.
District Governor Stark spoke to the club on membership and the need of a more conscientious effort to increase membership, citing the numerous services Lions provide to the community, nation and world. He highlighted Iowa Lions Eye Bank, Iowa KidSight (program testing preschool children for possible eye deficiencies), Iowa School for the Deaf, Iowa Lions Hearing Aid Bank (including Cochlear implants), Iowa Department for the Blind, Leader Dogs, and a variety of camps such as Camp Courageous; and local contributions such as WACO After Prom.
Stark presented Lion Gary Anderson with a pin and certificate of recognition of his 30 years of continuous membership.
Lion Ruth Meth accepted on behalf of the club a pin and patch of excellence for the 2012-2013 year. This award was based on service, contributions, increased membership, leadership and club development that was accomplished during her service as president during the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
The Olds Lions will have “tip nights” at Mt. Pleasant Pizza Ranch on May 14, and at the Washington location on June 9.
Money raised from these events will support programs mentioned by Stark.
The Olds Lions Club appreciates the community support at their fundraisers.
