Kendall Lions Club

The Kendall Lions Club met at Thunder Alleys on May 15, with 20 members present.

The minutes of the last meeting from Raye Walz and the treasurer’s report from Dave Heilman were approved.

There was great interest in a special report on the Lions Auction, which showed success at covering the expected costs for the club this year, including three college scholarships. Members are very appreciative of these donations and will try to thank local merchants as they patronize their businesses. Lorna Miller’s purchases with Lions money sold for value, above the sale prices she had paid.

Sue Wallace reported on the Lions Club booth, which the Kendall Lions shared with the Elroy Lions at the Royall High School Health Fair. At the booth, blindfolded students were led through a model room.

Under new business, vision assistance funds were approved for two local individuals, either for new glasses or for low-vision equipment.

Ideas were also discussed for a community picnic or ice cream social.

Officers for the coming year were approved: President Lynette Vlasak, First Vice President Cheryl Scheeter, Second Vice President Sue Wallace, Secretary Raye Walz, Treasurer Dave Heilman, and Membership Committee of Harvey Weiland and Denise Murray.

When Alice Brandau suggested a boat ride on the Upper Dells and inviting others from the community, the club decided to take its summer outing in June instead of August.
