You can consider this the President’s Pen for July and August. I think we need to have a Club Bulletin every month and have asked Lion Rob Farella to undertake this project. I would also like to keep our expenses down so if you would go to our website www.candlewoodlions.org and send Lion Rob your email so we can send the bulletin via email, but still mail one to those who don’t have email or the ability to print it. If anyone is interested in being an editor just let me know and we can work together to get the best club bulletin product.
1.THE CAR WASH SCEDULED FOR AUGUST 7TH IS CANCELLED. There were not enough Lions available so we have reserved Saturday, September 25th to try again.
2.THERE WILL BE A CLUB PICNIC MEETING AT LION ALICE HOXIE’S HOME, 268 PUMKIN HILL ROAD, NEW MILFORD ON SATURDAY, AUGUST 21ST STARTING AT 6 PM. THE CLUB WILL PROVIDE THE HAMBURGERS AND HOTDOGS ETC, BUT IF YOU WILL BE ATTENDING A SALAD OR DESERT WOULD BE APPRECIATED, PLEASE CALL LION ALICE AT 860-350-6600 TO LET HER KNOW IF YOU AND YOUR GUESTS WILL BE ATTENDING. THIS WOULD BE A GOOD OPPORTUNITY TO BRING SOME PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS.
3.By now you have all received an updated list of our 56 club members and your dues notice.
