Chestertown Lions Meeting

Greetings Fellow Lions,

Our next meeting is on Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 5:30 Social / 6:30 Dinner at CRY&CC.  Just like this time last year, this dinner meeting will be pizza and we have invited the Kappa Alpha from Washington College.  The Kappa Alphas always help us with our Fall Chix BBQ and this is our way to show some appreciation for their help. We also have visitors from Galena and Easton Lions Clubs coming.  Should be a lot of fun.

Please RSVP by sending me an email direct at glennmowens [at] gmail [dot] com.  I know we are just having pizza – the count will help us know how much pizza to buy.

Attached is information regarding our 22B Lions Club Convention in Ocean City.  This will be a big year for Lion Wayne Benjamin as he moves up to 1st VDG.  Your support at the convention is much appreciated.  Now is the time to start planning.  The convention is in May.  We always have a lot of fun.

Lion Glenn Owens, Secretary

Chestertown Lions Club Reminder: MLK Breakfast, January 21st

Fellow Lions,

Since our next business dinner meeting will not be until Wednesday, January 23, I wanted to remind everyone that this year’s annual Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Breakfast will be held on Monday, January 21 at the Rock Hall Fire House. The breakfast starts at 7:00 am with the program beginning at 8:00 am. Tickets can be purchased from members of the Chester Valley Ministers Association (CVMA) or at the door for $15.00.

This year’s keynote speaker is William W. Davis, Jr., associate judge with the Cecil County Circuit Court. His theme will be “Stand Up for Justice.” Last year a number of Club members were there, so let me know if you plan to attend and we’ll try and save seats together.

Chestertown Lions Club Holiday Spirit

Fellow Lions,

As we prepare for the holiday season, there are two groups we can truly help:

1. Robyn Moore, Executive Director, Kent County Christmas Basket Committee, has asked if we can provide needed holiday gifts for Kent county youth. She really needs gift cards (McDonald’s, Arby’s, Walgreen’s, and Dominoes in $10.00 size denominations) and typical art supplies (pens, pencils, art paper, markers, and scissors). If you can bring your gift donations to the Dinner Meeting on December 12, KL Dave will deliver them to the Worton Community Center. These gifts should not be wrapped.

2. 2VDG Wayne Benjamin advises that as Christmas is rapidly approaching and I think of those less fortunate than myself. I am a board member at the Humane Society and I know many of the fifteen hard working dedicated individuals who work at our local animal shelter. Their salaries are certainly not a reason for working there! They love the animals that we call ‘man’s best friend’. I would like to appeal to the Lions Club membership to reach a little deeper into their pockets this Christmas and see if they could give a few dollars to these young men and women this Christmas as a bonus and our “thank you”. If there are those out there who prefer a check, it may be made out to Humane Society of Kent County. I am only asking for a few dollars but obviously more is always better. I would like to put a pail on the table at our Christmas Party for donations. Will be appreciated by all.

For a Happy Holiday Season.
KL Dave

Chestertown Lions Club Halloween Parade

Fellow Lions,

A really big thank-you goes out to Lion Bob Knapp, Parade Coordinator, and his entire parade team for an excellent job in conducting a very successful Halloween Parade on Sunday, October 28th. As it turns out, it was the correct decision to move the parade to Sunday, a much more suitable day finally for a parade! I know the team members who got the contestants signed-up and lined-up; got them underway on time; walked the parade route with the group signs; announced contestants at the viewing stand, and acted as judges all deserve much credit for a successful parade. I think the community really appreciates what we do as is evident by the enthusiasm they show all along the parade route.

Again, many thanks to all for a job well done.

KL Dave
