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.
Lion Jerry has a unique way of collecting money for the Camp Dogwood tickets. Each member will be billed direct by the Treasurer and if you don't take or turn in tickets, the Lions Club's name will be put on them. See Lion Jerry for more details or to submit tickets.
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. If a new box is needed, please let Secretary Marvin know ASAP.
Lion Larry has some new smaller boxes for collecting eye glasses. If you want to replace a larger one with a smaller one, please contact him.
