Joan Lloyd spoke to us about her project, Bling’s The Thing. She makes and donates earrings to battered women’s shelters and she holds workshops (for seniors, girl
scouts, etc) to teach others how to make and donate them. Joan is holding such a
workshop at the Hart Library on August 28 starting at 6:00PM. She said that she finds this activity rewarding as do those who participate in the workshop. Joan has a Facebook page, Bling’s The Thing and her email address is JoanELloyd@att.net. Thank you, Joan for your presentation - please come again.
Next week’s meeting, August 23, will be at 5:30PM at Kirby’s. The cost is $15. per person. Hors d'Oeuvres and drinks will be served.
Mother Clair said the Outreach Center building and expansion project is coming along well and they are holding a raffle to raise money to complete it. She asked the club to sell 50 tickets at $100. each and this will be discussed by the Board. The Club decided to buy one raffle ticket.
Ass’t DG, Larry introduced himself and said if he can help us, please contact him. He added that he and his business would like to be a Best & the Wurst sponsor.
Steve is verifying that the Lions will be able to volunteer at the Best & the Wurst and we learned there are several job slots still available to fill.
The Lions are one of our B&W partners and will be selling tickets to The Best & the Wurst at their Music Festival this coming weekend. We hope this is a big success as we split the money from the sales with them!
