New Volunteer Opportunity: There is new opportunity to serve your community. Lion Chris Lupton presented the board with a request for help at Pepin Plaza with serving the noon meal at the facility that is available to all citizens of lake City, 60 years of age or older. This program is provided by SEMCAC, the Southeast Minnesota Community Action Coop, an agency supported financially by 6 county boards. The tasks that have to be done involve prewash rinsing dishes before they go to the dish washer and some general cleanup. It does not involve any cooking. The meals are prepared in Red Wing and delivered to the site. The need is for 1 person a day to help from 11:30 to 12:30. You can also get a meal for a discounted price of $2. You can volunteer for just one day or more, a long term commitment is not required. Lion Chris will have information at the May Dinner meeting, or call 608-239-8392.


Hok Si La Park: On Tuesday May 3, 5 Lions helped with the spring cleanup of the Hok Si La dining hall with the Kiwanis club of Lake City. +The great Lions that volunteered were Lions Jerry Jensen, Joe Schmidt, Ron Weigel, David Spain and Dick Boettcher. Please thank these Lions for doing a good deed.


White Cane Days: Originally, the club was going to have White Cane Days this coming weekend. The board decided not to have it at this time and will plan on a date in the fall.




Club Officers: There is a need for some Lions to come forward and help out the club. We are still in need of two Vice Presidents and there are still two board openings that need to be filled. Please consider helping our club to stay active and fun. For more information contact Lion Jerry Jensen 651-764-4577.


Watere Ski Days: There is a lot of planning going on for Water Ski Days coming up at the end of June. Several lions have been working with the Chamber of Commerce to figure out all the details and the need for volunteers. Please keep at least part of this weekend , June 23-26, free to help out with all the fun.
