In September we recognized Spouses, Friends, Children and significant others who help our club with our projects and events. These silent heroes often bear the burden of behind the scenes efforts to make events a success, and we deeply appreciate their support. Thank You!!
We were very pleased to have excellent attendance at the dinner. In fact we weren’t prepared for the overwhelming response, but the Ramada Inn came to the rescue by providing additional tables and dinners. We appreciate their hospitality.
We also welcomed District Governor Joe Skinner and First Vice District Governor Gene Scioletti to our club meeting. We appreciated their kind words, and particularly Lion Joe’s message regarding his vision and objectives for District 14H for 2014-2015. The Abington Lions Club is very proud that Joe Skinner, a very active member of our club, is serving as District Governor, and equally proud of the four other club members who are Past District Governors.
Several upcoming projects were discussed by their chairpeople. Rich Winslow talked about the upcoming Fall Festival project at Hillside Park on September 28th and asked all Lions to come help prepare and sell concessions. Brian Davis, Ellen Burkey, and Julie Paddock talked about the upcoming Elimination Dinner, and reminded all Lions to get their tickets now. There is no entry with out a ticket, and only 100 tickets are available.
Club Officers were sworn in by District Governor Joe Skinner, and promised to perform their responsibilities to the best of their ability.
