​It's good have Lion President Ned Mabe back in action and to know that son Daniel is recuperating well and able to do some things no one thought he would ever do again. Our prayers were certainly answered for this young man!

Lion Art and his Recognition Committee announced at the last meeting that Lion Larry Martin has been selected as Lion of the Year for 2015-2016. This is a repeat performance for him as he was previously recognized in 2009-2010. A $1000 stipend goes to a charity of choice of the winner. ​ Lion Larry is a long time member of the club and has chaired the Spring Folly Food Booth since its inception in 1995. And he has always made a profit even when the weather did not cooperate. Lion Larry and Jeanie, his wife of 40 years have 4 children, 8 grand children and 6 great grand children. He is a member of First Baptist Church and a retired Realtor with Prudential Realty. He is an avid Wake Forest fan and long time member of the Deacon Club, but takes medication for it. Congrats, Lion Larry for a job well done and recognition well deserved.
 
​Lion Marvin reports that our night at the Dash game will be Thursday, August 4th at BB&T Field. Club will cover Lions tickets but if you want to bring a guest, the cost is $11.50 each. Please let him know if you plan on attending.
 
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.
