At the April meeting you are invited to come up and find the two new additions to the Lioness banner that is always displayed behind the President and the podium. President Beth Sundberg and Tamer Roselynn Edwards attended the Lions March Zone Meeting in Madison, VA and were presented with new badges for two achievement awards. The first badge represents the Lions Sight Foundation of VA and the second was a service award from the Sight and Hearing Mobile Screening Unit District 24-C. The badges on the banner represent both past and present Lioness contributions in cooperation with the LOW Lions Club. Later this month we will again participate in another Lions fund raiser known as “White Cane.” A small white cane to be worn on the lapel is given to each person in recognition of their donation to Sight Conservation Day. Both the badges and the small white canes are representations of how Lionesses live their motto “We Serve.”
March gets off on the right foot when the Orange County Cloggers return for their second year as the main attraction for our dinner meeting. Between the music and the rhythm, it’s hard to keep in your seat while the young dancers whirl and twirl. And speaking of the dinner meeting, the membership will enjoy a Tea Party mixer where each person will be seated according to the tea bag selected as they come in the door. Use that selection for dinner or take it home for a later cup of friendship. Other items of business include the induction of one new member and the presentation of the new slate of officers for next year.
And work has begun on planning and organizing the annual Flea Market extravaganza. Scheduled for March 29, all vender tables have already been rented. Just remember each Lioness is asked to pick out some gently-used item for donation to our White Elephant table. Check the copy of the LowDown found under “Newsletters” for set-up details.
After a very busy fall, we will take a break in January while the Clubhouse is closed for renovations. The Monthly Book Sale is also taking a welcome rest during December and January, so I hope you stocked up on your winter reading early.
Thanks to everyone who donated all the Christmas items and baked goods for the community Kristkindlemarkt in December. Proceeds will go into the General Fund for distribution to our various organizations and charities.
Mark your calendars for the first dinner meeting of the year on February 13 when visions of valentines will set the tone for the evening.
