Congratulations to Dottie Cornatzer, the East Forsyth High School Teacher of the Year!!! Our LEO Club sponsor at East Forsyth High School was recognized for teaching her philosophy and philanthropy to her students. Years ago as a young single mother in need of assistance, she vowed to 'pay it forward' when she was able. She is identified for teaching her LEO Club and Occupational Course of Study (OCS) to 'pay it forward'. At a recent LEO Club project, the group fed the homeless at Bethesda Center and her OCS class has volunteered over 530 hours with Salvation Army. Congrats, Dottie!
At the December 9th meeting, the club presented $50 gift cards to each of the three ladies (Shari, Ellen & Beverly) who feed us each meeting. They do a terrific job in preparing delicious food each time. Thanks ladies and Merry Christmas.
The board of directors approved spending up to $400 for each LEO Club to purchase golf type shirts for each member to wear at their projects. They are a hard workig group of young ladies and gentlemen.
It was good to have Patti and Chris Morrison visiting with us the last 2 meetings, bringing completed apps at the Dec. 9th meeting. They are being sponsored by Marie and Bob Reed and we expect they will be great members.
It was good having Jo Crowley and Wayne Henderson visiting with us on November 11th. They have requested apps as they are interested in joining our club. We're excited to have them join us and are sure they will be an asset to the club. President Bill and Secretary Marvin will take credit for sponsoring them.
We welcome our newest Lion, Dr. Kimberly Orr, who transferred to Kernersville from the student Lions Club at Southern Optometry College in Memphis, TN. Dr. Kim is a new employee of Dr. Amy Harper of Harper Eye Care. We welcome her to our club and appreciate her dedication in continuing Lionism in her family, following in her grand-fathers footsteps.
A reminder that we only have one meeting (Dec 9th at FCC) in December.
