MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL

OPEN HOUSE AT BAY CLIFF, MONDAY DEC 28, 4;00PM TO 8;00PM See Bay Cliff in its winter beauty and enjoy hors d’oeuvres and fellowship.

ISHPEMING LIONS fundraiser which is a HOLIDAY BREAKFAST BUFFET at St Josephs Church in Ishpeming on Sunday Dec 7th from 8:30- 12:30.

Now is the time to enjoy family and friends and since most of us will be talking to a lot of people why not wear a Lion’s pin? If your club is helping a less fortunate family at Christmas tell people about it, maybe next year they will want to be a part of it. We are almost half way thru the Lions year, so how are we doing.

Member wise, we are a minus 8 as a district.

What are we doing activity wise? If you go by what has been reported to International we are doing terribly. Fortunately, that is not the case, but we need to do a much better job of reporting what we do.

We have a new item coming, SHOPKO will be providing 5 certificates per store in the UP. Each certificate is good for an eye exam and glasses. We have a contact point set up for each store and we will provide more information probably thru the Club Secretaries once everything is a go.

Enough business, enjoy the holidays and we’ll hit it hard in January.
