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!
Jo Crowley and Wayne Henderson visited with us again and submitted applications to join our august body. We are 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.
Program chair Bob Reed promises you won't want to miss our February 28th meeting at FCC, as he has a surprise mystery guest program lined up for us. He said something about a Brazilian beauty queen. Or was that a Brazilian wax job!!! Be there to find out.
we had a really great turn-out at January (27th) meeting at the Kernersville Womens Club on Salisbury Street. We had 34 Lions and 3 guests, who all filled out applications. What a meeting???
Thanks to our Vision Screening chairperson Debbie Warren and her commandos, who screened over 3400 students during this Lions year. We are now well over 40,000 students screened since we started in 1995. That's an accomplishment to be proud of.
We have Lions Club collection boxes at 9 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.
