With this board of directors, the LOW Lioness are bound for a successful year! How do Lioness define our success? To emphasize the quote from Maya Angelou which Maureen used in the President’s Corner of the August LOW DOWN, it’s how we make people feel. Contented – from the food we distribute at the Food Pantry; Happy – with the ice cream served at Child Help; Confident – with the scholarships awarded; Remembered – with the events for the Germanna Heights residents; Informed/entertained – with the monthly Book Sale – and it goes on.
The LOW Lioness Golf Tournament will be on Saturday, May 16 at the LOW Golf Course with 8 am Check In and 9 am Shotgun Start. Come join us for the fun: Captains Choice 4 person Scramble. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes plus men’s and women’s longest drive and closest to the pin prizes. There will be a 50/50 raffle and great raffle prizes and lunch will be provided. Get a team together or we will pair you up. Registration and fees must be received by May 4th. $60/person (includes: green/cart fees/lunch/prizes). All monies raised will be used to support: Wilderness Food Pantry, LOW Fire andRescue, LOW youth activities and Scholarships, S.A.F.E House, Childhelp East, Orange County Schools, Orange County Free Clinic, Piedmont Dental Clinic, Germanna Community College Scholarships and more.
March definitely came in like a lion. Mother Nature kept her biggest and snowiest weather event until spring was just in sight and then arrived in LOW dressed all in white. However, Lionesses took advantage of the quiet time to continue planning for spring events.
The March dinner meeting will begin with a mixer celebrating the various benevolences that make up the annual service events followed by a program presented by Tim Wirtz of St. Jude’s Hospital. During the business portion of the evening the new slate of officers will be put forward by the nominating committee, chaired by Past President Beth Sundberg.
Later in the month the Travel Committee has scheduled a trip to the Bizarre Bazaar in Richmond and on March 28th members will take part in the annual Flea Market/White Elephant and Bake Sale. The month goes out like a lamb with the Lioness Book Sale and March was, indeed, an amazing month.
