Welcome to the
Greentown Lions Club-
The pace of activity is picking up. We have started working on the Christmas lights and inflatables in Pioneer Village. Contact Lion Dave Mohring to help.
Mark your calendars for Saturday December 5, the opening weekend of Christmas Lights. Come view the lights, snack in the round barn, and interact with the community. Santa will be there as well. It will be a lot of fun!
Lion Mike Imbler has been busy preparing for our Christmas Basket project. Please be sure to review the bell ringing and box packing schedule and The Turkey Board
The Turkey Board at Heartland Market
is ready. Purchase a turkey ticket for
$5, $10, $15, $20, $25.
All donations will be used for
purchasing food for families
in our community
At our dinner meeting in October we heard from Peter Heck about Christopher Columbus, since it was Columbus Day, and learned some American History. Peter’s fast pace and dynamic personality left us almost speechless.
Later in October we received an update from Gary Loveless of the Howard County Automotive Heritage Hall of Fame. Bob Gollner brought his 1960 Chevy El Camino. They have a lot of new projects in the works including new displays at the Automotive Heritage Museum, a life-sized statue of Elwood Haynes, and a display about George Kingston at the new Kingston Place, to name a few. Did you know that St Rd 26 in Howard County is officially designated the Jonathan Maxwell Memorial Highway? And the ceremony was held at the Russiaville Lions Club?
On November 12, we heard from Ross Waltemath about Veterans benefits. There are over 9000 veterans in Howard County. If you need assistance, contact Ross. He noted that many veterans are not aware of many of the benefits available.
