District Governor's Newsletter
We at Spokane Central Lions Club are members of a district that includes some 53 clubs in eastern Washington, northern Idaho and southeastern BC, Canada. We're very proud of meeting and knowing Lions on both sides of the border. Our District Governor this year is Lion Bob Yeoman. The June issue is located in the "members only" section (lower left corner of the screen). I have placed it there so it is accessable to members but not the general public. If you don't know how to access it send me (John Wilson) an email or speak to me at a meeting.

Rehn & Associates Team Finishes Second
On Friday 14 August, Spokane Central Lions (SCL) Lee Teichmer, Steve Maggio, Cliff Miller and Ed Brandstoettner placed second in the 18th Annual Lilac Blind Charity Golf Scramble. Twenty-five teams competed in the tournament at Downriver Golf Course raising approximately $30,000 through donations, sponsorships, tournament fees and a silent auction.
The event was won by the Odom Corporation team with a score of 56. The Rehn & Associates/Spokane Central Lions team took advantage of bought mulligans to creatively score 59 for second. Three teams tied for third (CDA Metals, Payne West Insurance, & Good Buddies Cabinets) at 61 with Good Buddies winning the tie breaker. The Fly Girls trailed the entire field with a score of 87, which was the worse score the course director ever remembered.
Other SCL at the event were Jack Lucas, who played on another team and Marilyn Schroeder who was a hole-in-one monitor. The Spokane Central Team is pictured below (L toR) Lion Cliff, Lion Ed, Lion Lee and Lion Steve.
