Lions Jim Barrett has agreed to replace Lion Art Drennan as our representative on the Chamber of Commerce Advisory Board. We do appreciate Art's handlng this for us during the last few years.

We wish to welcome our newest Lion Gary Gross, who recently transferred from the Greensboro Host Club. We can always use another good Lion.

New Lions Patti & Chris Morrison and Wayne Henderson were officially inducted into the Kernersville Lions Club by Past District Governor Danny Jefferson on March 24th. We welcome these new members.

At a recent board of directors meeting, the following dues were changed to reflect a cost containment strategy for our expenses, effectively immediately:

   Our initiation fee was increased from $40 to $45 for future new members. This fee is used to cover our International dues for the first year of membership. Quarterly dues of $50 was not changed at this time. The quarterly dues covers the cost of meals at meetings.

At Large dues were increased from $10 to $12 per quarter. These dues are for members who rarely attend meetings but wish to remain members. This fee covers their annual LCI dues.  

Lion Larry Martin says Spring Folly is just around the corner so don't forget to sign up and show up!
