Lion Notes:

Trunk and Treat Event from Lion Sue
 
Our Cub Scouts have invited us to participate in their Trunk and Treat event to be held at 7:00 PM, Fri., Oct. 20 at Erickson School. 
Trunk-or-treat is the newest craze for churches, youth groups, and Scout troops. The kids walk from car-to-car in a parking lot and trick-or-treat. To add to the fun, you can decorate your car trunk. You can make your car trunk as elaborate or as plain as you want. You can dress up to complement your car theme as well. As the Scouts walk around the parking lot, they receive candy from each car owner. 
It's a safer form of trick-or-treating since only Scout parents and Lions will be parked in the parking lot. Please consider participating. This is the Cub Scout pack that we sponsor.

Lion Bill Wolff was honored with a Bloomingdale School District 13 Community Exemplar Award at the September 25 meeting of the Board of Education for the school district.  The Community Exemplar Award is intended to recognize a citizen of the greater learning community of Bloomingdale School District 13 who makes an outstanding contribution to positively impact both the school district and Bloomingdale.  As you are aware, Lion Bill consistently volunteers to serve in many ways, and it was a well deserved honor.

Congratulations Lion Bill!

Septemberfest Update from Lion Stan
 
Lion Stan extends his greatest appreciation for all of the Lions that helped during SeptemberFest. Your hard work and sometimes long hours is a testimony of why this club is such a pleasure in which to be a member.

The figures have not been finalized yet but right now we have an approximate net profit of about $7,000. We even were able to sell 8 raffle tickets. None of this could have happened without your cooperation, dedication and unbelievable effort. I am really proud of our club and its members. Thank you all and God bless.
 
Thanks for all your hard work setting up the Lion's Beer/Wine space at Septemberfest, Lion Stan!
