Regular Meetings are on 2nd and 4th Tuesday at 6:00 PM (First Christian Church, 1130 N. Main St. unless otherwise announced). When in doubt, check our calendar of events on this website. NOTE: Serving line opens at 5:45 PM. EVERYONE is welcome to come visit and join our active club.

Our next meeting is on May 23rd at Main Street United Methodist Church on North Main St. Serving line opens at 5:45 PM. Lion Debbie will introduce our 2017 Kernersville Lions Club scholarship winners from EFHS & GHS. She will also introduce our LEO Club leaders from both schools.    
 
​There will be a short board meeting immediately after the meeting. All board members are expected to attend and vote on issues brought up for discussion.
 
​Remember Lion Roger and Jerry in your prayers. Both are having serious health issues and need all the prayers they can get. Lion Roger has been moved to a rehab unit and Lion Jerry is home but is a patient at KMC for now. Also, Lion Gary Gross' wife Cynthia has been hospitalized but is now home.
 
Don't forget to turn in your Camp Dogwood money and ticket stubs to Lion Jerry. Stubs need to be turned in soon if they are going to get into the drawing pot for the 2018 drawing.​ 
 
​Thanks to Lions Mike and Ned for a fantastic Benefit Dinner this past Tuesday. It promises to be the best EVER, profit-wise. Thanks to all Lions who purchased and sold tickets. And a big thanks to Lion Joe for his super screen display of the ticket board.  If you haven't gotten all your money turned in, do so IMMEDIATELY.
 
Spring Folly is OVER! Again! Thanks to Lion Larry for another successful ( and hopefully, profitable) food booth folly. We certainly couldn't do this project without his dedicated leadership. And a great big thanks to his grandson Chase, who put us all to shame over the weekend. Please, no hamburgers or hot dogs for at least a month.
 
​Lion Debbie reports that the 2017 Kernersville Lions Club scholarships will be presented on Awards Day at EFHS & GHS. Winners and families will be present at our May 23rd meeting at MSUMC. Another great job by our scholarship committee.
 
​A reminder to 'be thinking' about your nominations for "Lion of the Year" for 2016-2017. Lion Art and committee are soliciting nominations, which are due at the May 23rd meeting. So put your thinking cap on.

​Local Lions clubs are encouraged to connect with your community and build your Lion legacy by planning a Centennial Community Legacy Project during our Centennial Celebration. Legacy Projects are visible gifts to your community that commemorate our Centennial and create a lasting legacy of your service contributions.

Our Legacy Project will serve as a reminder of just how important your club is to the community during the Centennial and beyond. All Lions clubs around the world are encouraged to complete a Legacy Project by June 30, 2018, so start planning yours today!

Your board or directors is asking members to come up with ideas and suggestions for our Legacy Project for our community. Please think about, discuss with each other and submit your suggestions to any board member.

​We have Lions Club collection boxes at the following locations through out the Kernersville and Walkertown areas 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 Bare know ASAP. Lion Larry Martin has some new smaller boxes for collecting eye glasses. If you want to replace a larger one with a smaller one, please contact him.
