The Shartlesville Lions Club had more than cov­ered dishes and pic­nic fare when the club held its sum­mer pic­nic. They had a sur­prise for their just- re­tired club pres­i­dent Bob Ar­got, courtesy of a let­ter from Lions Clubs In­ter­na­tional’s pres­i­dent for the 2016- 2017 Lions year, Chan­cel­lor Bob Cor­lew.

Co- sec­re­tary Lion Patti Cahill read that let­ter af­ter co- sec­re­tary Shirley Berger called for mem­bers’ at­ten­tion be­fore the gath­er­ing dis­persed.

“It is with the great plea­sure that I present to you the Se­nior Mas­ter Key and Medal­lion for spon­sor­ing 25 mem­bers dur­ing your ca­reer as a Lion,” said Cor­lew in his let­ter, with Lion Cahill adding, “in Lion Bob’s two home ar­eas.”

PDG Ar­got was sur­prised and felt a cer­tain amount of grat­i­fi­ca­tion that he had been able to have that many in­di­vid­u­als to be­come a Lion. Those new Lions in­cluded adding three ini­tial women mem­bers to his club in Mon­roe County, as well as mem­bers to the Shartlesville Lions Club here in Dis­trict 14- P. But, it does not in­clude the mem­bers of a club Lion Ar­got started dur­ing his ten­ure as Dis­trict Gov­er­nor of Dis­trict 14- U, the Bushkill-Smith­field Lions Club.
