Welcome to the
Greentown Lions Club-
Lion Evan Says—
This year marks the beginning of our centennial celebration, 100 years of service. It is an honor to be able to serve with the Greentown Lions Club and all that we do to help our community. During the week of the fair, we had more than 13,000 people visit our website, howardcofair.com, with over 40,000 page views. Not surprisingly, a majority of the traffic came from the fair schedule page. Our biggest club project, the Howard County 4-H Fair, was another great success in 2016. Thank you to all the Lions that helped make our largest club project another success. Our auction continues to be one of the most successful in the state. The buyers at the auction once again showed their generosity to the kids in 4-H. One 4-H member donated his earnings from the auction to the fund for Officer Koontz. The Lions Club also purchased two pigs. This past month has been a tough one for our club. We have lost two valuable members of the Greentown Lions Club, Lions Bill Julius and Don Winger. Here are a few excerpts from their respective obituaries:
Lion Bill Julius graduated from Greentown High School in 1946 and attended college in Champaign Illinois. Bill worked for Crop Maker Fertilizer in Greentown until he retired in 1993. He then worked for Ernie’s Fertilizer and again retired in 1998. He was a member of Meridian Street Christian church, a member of the Greentown Lions Club, and Howard County 4-H fair Treasurer for 25 years.
Lion Don Winger graduated from Jackson Township High School in 1944. He was a farmer like his father and grandfathers, and he learned from his father the basics of being a good steward of the soil as well as how to raise livestock. He was a member of Kokomo Zion United Methodist Church, 4-H Leader, 4-H Fair Chairman, Food Tent Chairman, Lions Fair Board, Lions Club President and member. I am grateful for the years of service that these two men gave to their community and the club. We can all learn from their examples to be better servants to our community.
