At our frist meeting in July, Nick and Katie Riddle talked about their upcoming 2 year mission trip to Egbe, Nigeria. Both have been assigned to the hospital, built in 1954. Katie will be teaching the children of the hospital staff and Nick will be using his fireman and construction skills to help with maintenance and safety planning. Both feel that God has called them to be there at this time of their lives. At the conclusion of their program, the club presented them with a check for $1000, as designated by Lion Marvin Bare, this years Lion of the Year. The LOY award comes with a $1000 stipend for a charity of the LOY winner's choice.
At the August 12th meeting, Lion Marvin Bare was presented with a plaque for his selection as Lion of the Year for 2013-2014 Lions year. Congrats, Lion Marvin.
