Many of you have asked about the temporary address for President Ned and Carolyn Mabe while in California assisting their son. Assistance donations should be made payable to Ned Mabe and sent to Bonnie Scott, 7671 Vance Road, K'ville and she will deposit directly into Ned's account. Please include your email address with your donation to receive a personlized thank you. Please hold cards and letters for now as they are intransit moving Daniel to Los Angeles and will advise the address as soon as it's received.

​The Benefit Dinner on Tuesday, April 26th was a huge success with a great turnout and all tickets sold. Thanks to everyone who made it possible. Thanks to Lion Mike and his committee of dedicated workers for their efforts.
 
​Spring Folly 2016 just concluded on Saturday night and weather held off after some Friday afternoon rain for a beautiful weekend. Crowds were good and lines were long but the Lions kept on a'cooking those dogs and burgs. Had some new Lions and some old ones (in more ways than one) a'working. Great job as usual for Lion Larry and his one man committee. Thanks for your dedicated job, Larry.
 
Lion Jerry says almost 100% of the Camp Dogwood tickets have been sold. He will be sending tickets and monies to NCLI soon. Thanks, Lion Jerry for your usual great job!
 
​Time to start thinking about Lion of the Year for 2016. Lion Art and his Recognition Committee will accept nominations between now and the May 24th meeting. So put your thinking caps on and send him your recommendations today. 
 
We have Lions Club collection boxes at 11 locations through out the Kernersville area to collect cell phones, hearing aids and eye glasses. The Lions listed beside the location have agreed to pickup collected items periodically and bring to Lion Jerry Medford for transport to Camp Dogwood.
