Lion Dave Says:

Hello Fellow Lions! Welcome to another exciting year of service with the Greentown Lions Club.  I would like to thank everyone who served in some way during the Howard County Fair this year. It was a rough start with the rainy weather but later in the week things really picked up as the weather cleared, and it dried out. The fair auction was a big success. Lion Dave Eikenberry reports that we had 70 buyers that donated 73 animals to charity. Our Lions Club purchased one animal and joined the Merchants of Howard County to purchase two more. The total sale was $121, 000 for the 4-H kids.

This year we saw 2 big additions to the pioneer village landscape with the completion and dedication of the Sheriff’s office complete with 2 jail cells and an Apothecary building. Ron Julius dedicated the Apothecary building to his late wife, Pat, who was a local pharmacist for 40 years. The building has her collection of historical apothecary equipment and materials on display. The Sheriffs’ office was dedicated and stands as a memorial to all those law enforcement officers of Howard County who have lost their lives in the line of duty. Kassandra Koontz, the widow of late Deputy Carl Koontz, and her son were present to receive a special recognition from Bryan Kirkpatrick. Fair Chairman Kevin Smith and I were able to present a plaque to current Howard County Sheriff Steve Rodgers. The whole ceremony was a humbling experience. If you haven’t been able to see these buildings yet I highly recommend it. The pioneer village is well on its way to becoming more than just a one week a year destination during the fair.The little white church also saw some improvements thanks to Lion Bill Holt and his team. There was a wood floor installed and real church pews as well. There are now historical articles and pictures going back to the days of the first church in Jerome in the 1800s.

I am looking forward to serving as president of our club this year. District Governor Cindy Wright will be at our first meeting. Let’s be sure to give her a big welcome (and birthday wish as it will be her birthday).

Roars,
Lions President Dave
