Beloit Noon Lions Newsletter

May 2019


Greetings fellow Lions, and welcome to SPRING!

  • Chair Lee Kuska and his able crew concluded another productive Vision Screening program, having screened 2813 kids, in 16 schools, with 377 referrals (13%). Also, CONGRATS to Barb Kuska for 45 years of dedicated service to Beloit Memorial Hospital. She’s now retired and will spend her time picking up after Lee…
  • At Secy. Rusch’s suggestion and with board approval, due to an abundance of funds in our Administrative account, we’ll waive the yearly dues for fiscal 2020, and also charge just $10. for the

Installation of Officers banquet at the Butterfly on June 20th.

Plus, steakfry and golf outing profits would be transferred to our Major Projects account to beef up that area of monies available.

We will also provide a Melvin Jones and Knight of Sight award
