Homeports Health & Wellness Expo

Fellow Lions,

A big thank you goes to Lion Fred Sherriff and a team of Chestertown Lions that worked at the Homeports Health & Wellness Expo held at the Kent County High School on Thursday, October 17, 2019.

The Lions served coffee and manned a table promoting Health-related services provided the community by the Chestertown Lions Club including the collection of eyeglasses, eye screening of young children, transportation to eye doctors, and diabetes awareness. It was a fun day of Lionism, and both District Governor John Lawrence and 1st Vice District Governor Wayne Benjamin stopped in for a visit.

Thanks again for another great day of service.

Attention Road Cleanup Team and Others Interested in Helping:

The original road cleanup date for Thursday, Oct 17th has been rescheduled for Thursday, Oct 24th At 1 pm due to the fact that some team members can’t make the 17th. We will meet at 6301 Church Hill Rd (on Rt 213 by the Recycling Igloos by Sparkle Pools). If we can get 8-10 volunteers it should only take us a few hours to complete. I will have all the supplies we need. If you know you can attend, please reply so I have a count of how many we will have. All members welcome to help the road cleanup team.

Please respond back to Lions Matt Kempel email address mkempel [at] live [dot] com

Thanks,

District 22-B LVRF Dinner

Fellow Lions,

I have forwarded the reminder for the District 22-B LVRF Dinner

The District 22-B LVRF Dinner will be held Friday, November 1st at 6 pm at the Greensboro Volunteer Fire Hall in Greensboro, Maryland. If your schedule is open, this is a very worthwhile program to attend and represent the Chestertown Lions Club. You will experience what the Lions Vision Research Foundation provides. Your club has budgeted $500 to support the Lions Vision Research Foundation, and it will be presented at this event. Since we need to RSVP by October 18 please let me know if you are interested in attending, and the Club will provide the RSVP. Thank you.

KL Rick

———- Forwarded message ———

Dear Fellow Lions,

This is just a friendly reminder that the annual District 22-B LVRF dinners are fast approaching, and I really hope you will attend. The first dinner will be held Saturday, October 19th at 6pm at the Hebron Volunteer Fire Hall in Hebron, Maryland. The speakers will be the doctor who is currently during her Fellowship at the Low Vision Center and a young elementary school student who has received care/treatment there. The young child’s story will touch your hearts and validate the impact of our mission. Please RSVP ASAP so I can give a count to the caterer.

The second dinner will be held Friday, November 1st at 6 pm at the Greensboro Volunteer Fire Hall in Greensboro, Maryland. The speakers that night will be one of the doctors on staff and a young adult patient who lost his vision at the age of 18 due to a violent assault. I am sure you will find the patient’s story especially moving and inspiring. Please try to RSVP by October 18.

You can RSVP for either dinner to Kevin Darcey at kevindarcey [at] icloud [dot] com, or call me at 410/430-8104, or snail mail to 410 Dogwood Drive, Salisbury, Maryland 21801. Cost is $20 per person.

Please come out and network with your fellow Lions, enjoy a meal together, and hear about the wonderful things happening at OUR Lions Vision and Research Foundation. I hope to see you there!

Oh…and did I mention there might be beer and wine during the social hour?

Thank you for your consideration and support,

Lion Kevin Darcey, LVRF Trustee

From the Chestertown Spy:

On a beautiful fall Wednesday morning, the Chestertown Lions Club presented a check for $1,200 to the Chestertown Garden Club to support the” Good Seeds” garden project.

Chestertown Lions Chicken BBQ

Fellow Lions,

A big thanks goes to Lion Jerry McCarthy, Chair, and Lions Ken Roderick and Bob Knapp, Vice Chairs, for running a very successful Barbecue on a fantastic fall day. The entire team and the KA’s from the College worked together and sold 700 chicken halves by around 2:30 pm; a job well done.

Success requires a lot of work and coordination. The Team Captains and Team Members worked together to prepare for the event, set up for the day of the event, prep the chicken, cook the chicken, cook the livers, package the chicken to be sold, sell the chicken and then clean up.

A special thanks goes to the team members who got there early to set up and those who stayed late to help with the cleanup.

Thanks again for making our first major fundraiser a success.
