Coming up on May 2-4th is our annual Spring Folly Food Booth in downtown K'ville. Lion Larry says he needs all the help he can get. If you have a truck and can help set up on Friday morning, meet at Clarence's storage building at 9 AM to load up the equipment. We'll start cooking around noon and serve until 10 that night and then all day and night on Saturday. Bring those trucks back on Sunday morning to take down and move the equipment back to storage.
A big welcome to our newest Lion:
Lion Caroline has Camp Dogwood tickets. As every Lion is expected to sell/buy 3 books, she has a special deal for you. Pay her the $30 and she will fill out the tickets for you. Now that's a deal!!!
Visually Impaired Day - Wednesday April 30 from 8:30am until about 3pm. - BB&T Football Field (Wake Forest). This is a Special Olympics type event for Visually Impaired/blind school students from several counties. Help is needed in running the events down on the field. It is real simple to do and very rewarding seeing the kids participation. They love it. Our club has been helping with this for several years. It is sponsored by A Brighter Path which is part of Industries for the Blind in Winston. You get a nice T-shirt for helping, lunch (pizza), and get to be on the big Football Field at Wake Forest. It is a great event. IF ANYONE from your club can help that day, please let Lion President Bill know.
Vision Screening Chair Debbie Warren reports our school and pre-school vision screenings are complete with the last two being snowed out. She wishes to thank everyone who turned out to help.

Don't forget to bring your *PIG* money to each meeting. It will lighten your load! Lion Bernie will be waiting on you to empty your pockets to him. This is an internal project where members bring in their loose change in a 'piggy bank' to help with internal and for community projects as designated by the board of directors. Members are divided into teams and each year, the team that contributes the most money eats steak while the losing team eats beans at a meeting. Last year, members contributed over $1200 in change for this project.
