    Books and Dictionaries

    Today we gave out library books to the Heritage Elementary and Leesville Elementary schools. In addition dictionaries were passed out to the 3rd graders at Leesville Elementary. You should have seen the excited students. Some arm pumping was done as a ‘yes’ we appreciate getting them.






    DISTRICT 24-B ZONE 1 REGION 1 MEETING

    Lion Helen Mueller (zone chair) did a great job both finding a great place to have dinner; and running the zone meeting. There were representative from all but 1 club and discussions included, but not limited to the SPOT machine, Zone Eyeglass Scoring Day, Lions Night at the Ballpark results and various contributions all the various clubs made to various groups at the end of the Lion’s year.

    A great thank you also to Lion Frank Whitten for leading the song, and Lion Paula Mills for the Invocation.






    Presenting Certificates

    Lion Bill presented some well-deserved certificates at the last club meeting. Lion Lee was thanked for all his work on the annual Heritage Park trail clean-up, Lion Frank for gathering non-perishable food items and President Lion John for chairing the Square Device Committee.

    A bit thank you to all for their continued hard work.





    Tab, tabs, everywhere

    One of the very great things to do as a Lion is to help others. In keeping with this philosophy, Lion Bob Jenks is collecting can tabs. So if you open a can of pop, a can of soup or even a can of pet food, be sure to save the tab on top of the lid and when you have a number of them, give to Lion Bob.

    All tabs are being donated to the Ronald McDonald house in Roanoke where they turn them in for money to help the kids and families at the Ronald McDonald house. Keep on saving them. Here is a picture of just a small portion of the total tabs already donated.




    More Dictionaries and Library Book

    With on-going Literacy program, dictionaries were presented to the 3rd grade class at Tomahawk Elementary School and also library books were presented to the tomahawk library. A great time was had by both the students and Lions and Lion Ray gave instructions to one of the classes on holding the dictionaries up.

    We look forward to doing this again next year.






    Thank You Letter

    After the presentation for library books to Tomahawk Elementary School last week, we received this thank you letter from the librarian.

    This shows how much is appreciated by the community for what we do.



    White Cane

    White cane was held this last weekend and we were at Moore’s Country store and Sam’s Club. Lion John everyone who was able help and Brookville-Timberlake Lions Club will be putting the money to good use over the upcoming year.

    We appreciate all the people who donated from just a little to larger amounts. Without the help of the community we would not be able to return the help to peoples in need.




    Help The Toy Collection

    The Brookville-Timberlake Lions Club has received its first donations for our 2017 toy collection. The toy collection is an on-going club project and we are in our 2nd year of this project. Last year we collected enough toys to serve 7 agencies including Gleaning For the World, Jubilee Center, The Boys and Girls Club, Salvation Army Shelter, The Angel Tree, and the Marines. This year we are also hoping to serve some group homes and adult agencies.

    We need both new and gently used toys for this project. Please consider making a ‘Christmas in July’ (or August or September) donation by purchasing an educational toy. Walmart, Toys Are Us, and other local stores carry many reasonable priced education toys. Please let grandchildren, neighbors, local scout troops, and members of your church know that we are collection toys for distribution by our Lions Club. Look around your house – Do you have family movies, a baseball glove, a badminton set, binoculars, books (books on animals, places in the world, computers, etc.) that you no longer need and would like to donate to a good cause? These items do not need to be new and I would be glad to do the cleaning. Toys can be brought to our Lions Club meetings, dropped at my house, or I can arrange to pick them up.

    Thank you for all the help given by all of you with the toy collection for 2016. Thank you Lions for your generous help again this year.

  • How Do You Join Lions?

    Lions Club Membership is by Invitation Only. If you know someone in a Lions Club, tell them that you are interested in becoming a member, and ask what you should do.

    The Lions Member should invite you to a dinner meeting of the Club, where you can meet the members, and have a free meal. If you are still interested in joining, your Lion friend will provide you with an application to be filled out.

    When the application is filled out, give it back to your Lion friend, and he will sponsor you as a member. The application is given to the Board of Directors for approval, and that's it.

    You will receive Lions Orientation, and then be inducted into membership. If you don't have any Lion friends that you know of, call:

    434-515-2106

    Leave a message, and someone will call you back to talk to you about Lions.
