Lions Clubs hold zone meeting
Members of the four Lions Clubs in Queen Anne’s County held a zone meeting at Fisherman’s Inn, Wednesday, Aug. 24, with District Governor Ben Cassell in attendance.
Cassell, who urged the clubs to attempt to recruit new members, noted that next year will be the 100th anniversary of Lions International’s formation. He is also an active member of the Kent Island Lions.
Zone Chairman Darlene Coleman conducted the meeting. She is also the secretary of the Sudlersville Lions.
She asked clubs present to announce any fundraisers coming up. Queenstown will be assisting the Queenstown Volunteer Fire Company as it holds its annual fair on Sept. 9-10. The Sudlersville Club held a fundraiser recently, but will be going all out in December for their annual Christmas Tree Sale. The club members will be selling trees three weekends in December: Dec. 2-4; Dec. 8-11; and Dec. 16-18.
All clubs in District 22B, which includes the nine counties of the Eastern Shore, contribute to expenses of the All-Star Soccer Game for high school students to be held Nov. 22, at the Easton High School stadium. This is the 24th annual Senior All-Star Game, and each player will be allowed to keep the uniforms worn during the girls’ and boys’ games.
Also coming up in this area, will be the Lions Vision Research Foundation Aim for Sight Sporting Clay Shoot. It will take place at Pintail Point, outside Queenstown on Saturday, Oct. 15. Anyone wishing for more information on this event may contact Lion Dal Mann at 410-673-9085 or email@example.com.
It was announced that the 100th annual International Convention of Lions Club will be held June 30 through July 4 in Chicago.
The next zone meeting for the Queen Anne’s County clubs will be Nov. 30, also at Fisherman’s Inn.
