President’s Msg: Greetings….
As I walked down the basement steps this morning, Wintergreen fillled the stairway. It is time to move those Mints! Work Candy Day Oct. 7th & 8th. I implore you to work at least 3 hours or more during this event. This is a AHOD event! Be there or be FINED.
Later in October, let your Lions Mane down (hair) at our Hotdog Roast on the evening of Oct. 29th, 5-8 p.m. The tail twister will provide drinks, hotdogs, buns and marshmallows for roasting. I encourage you to bring a tasty covered dish to share. Come enjoy sitting around the campfire.
Once again, Mattoon Light works is approaching. Our week this year to spread Holiday cheer is Nov. 21st – Nov. 27th. Sign up to enjoy a 2 hour shift. You will be blessed by the visitors and the bright lights!
I will leave with this: Well done is better than well said. “We Serve Better Together”
Lion John Doty, President
