A great B*I*G* Kernersville Lions welcome to our newest member:
Lion Crystal Tanner joined the club after the last meeting. Crystal is the Human Resources Manager for the Town of Kernersville, where she has worked for 18 years. She lives in Belews Creek with her husband Kevin. Lion Roger Stockton is her sponsor.
Lion Jo Crowley announced at the last meeting that she and husband Wayne would be relocating in the near future to Maryland, where she has accepted a job. We hate to see them go but wish them nothing but the best. It has been a pleasure watching them grow in Lionism.
Vision Screening Chairperson Debbie Warren has finalized our vision screening schedule for all schools except one for this Fall. Dates were sent out to members via email and are also listed on this sites Lions calendar. Please review and advise Lion Debbie which ones you CANNOT make. Otherwise she will expect you to show up and help. Thanks Lion Debbie for you usual good job in coordinating with the schools.
We have Lions Club collection boxes at the following locations through out the Kernersville and Walkertow 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 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.
