Draw For Sight Cancellation

 

 

 

 

 

March 22, 2020

After much discussion and deliberation, the Chestertown Lions Club board and I have decided that we will​​ CANCEL​​ the Draw for Sight Bicycle Ride scheduled for Sunday April 26, 2020.

The corona virus​​ (COVID-19) is changing the way we travel, congregate and serve in communities around the world. ​​ The pandemic is just within the last few days, starting to have an effect on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Experience from countries infected at a much earlier date than the United States, suggests that infections could continue over a few months.​​ 

Our Draw for Sight and Bay to Bay Rides are as source of much needed income to meet the needs of our community and we will certainly be financially impacted at this​​ loss of fundraising opportunity. ​​ We care about every member, and the people we serve, which is why we all need to put health and safety first, in this challenging time for the world.​​ 

For those cyclists who have pre-registered for this event, we have the​​ following options:​​ 

  • Transfer​​ registration/t-shirt order from Draw for Sight ride to the Bay to Bay ride scheduled June 28, 2020.

  • Accept contribution​​ of the registration/t-shirt funds with gratitude and provide a tax statement of this as a donation. ​​ Chestertown Lions Charities, Inc. is a non-profit tax-exempt public charity as provided for in Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.  ​​ 

  • Issue refund​​ of the registration fee and t-shirt order.

Lions International has served the world for the last 100 years and Chestertown Lions since 1940. ​​ We want to continue to do that and with your support and understanding, we will!

NOTICE

POSTPONEMENT​​ OF COMEDY NIGHT

 

 

Fellow Lions,

 

With the potential for the increasing spread of coronavirus and the mandated cancellation of large meetings and get-togethers, we have decided to​​ POSTPONE​​ THE​​ CHESTERTOWN LIONS CLUB COMEDY NIGHT FUNDRAISER​​ scheduled for March 28, 2020.​​ ​​ We feel postponing this special event at this time allows us to err on the side of caution.​​ ​​ WE HAVE RESCHEDULED THE COMEDY NIGHT FOR MAY 30, 2020 AT THE CHESTER RIVER YACHT AND COUNTRY CLUB.

 

Please contact anyone who purchased tickets from you and advise them of this postponement.​​ Also, advise them that a refund will be available if they cannot attend the event on that date or you may ask if they would like donate all or part of the ticket cost back to the Club​​ to support our fundraising activities.

 

We will reevaluate in mid-May if large get-togethers are still discouraged.​​ 

 

We appreciate your consideration and continued support for both our annual fundraiser and the well-being of our community’s needs.​​ 

 

Thanks.

PKL Dave Dunham

Congratulations to PKL David Dunham

Fellow Lions,

Congratulations to PKL Dave Dunham!! Dave was recognized by District Governor John Lawrence on behalf of the Lions International President Dr. Choi with a CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION in Recognition of Distinguished Achievements in Fulfilling the Mission of Lions Clubs International. The presentation was made at the annual Social held in Cambridge, MD, Saturday, March 7, 2020, to honor 22B’s District Governor John Lawrence.

Dave, a relatively new Lion was recognized for his outstanding service for his recent service as President of the Chestertown Lions Club, by the implementation of a new fundraiser (the Comedy Night) and particularly for his success in promoting the activities of his club in local news outlets. His club’s activities seem to get published almost every week.

The entire Chestertown Lions Club thanks PKL Dave for all he does.
