Mt. Hood Lions Club: Mountain Roar

Please plan to attend our Mt. Hood Lions Club Scholarship Dinner on Saturday April 13th. Happy Hour begins at 6:30pm, with dinner at 7.00pm. This year’s dinner will include spaghetti, Italian sausage, Italian bread and salad (using some of Lion Jim Turin’s famous recipes). Price at the door is $8 for kids 10 and under, and $18 for adults. Special Adult Presale tickets are available for $15 at Welches Clackamas County Bank, Welches Mountain Building Supply, Coffee House 26, and the Whistle Stop Tavern - or ask any Lion. Our Scholarship Committee Chairwoman is Lion Cindi Sempert, with Lion Craig Calvert heading up the kitchen crew. Our club’s scholarship program began in 1998. So please come out in support of this very important Lion’s Club project. Thank you!

Remember, Bingo continues every Friday night through May 10th, with doors opening at 6:00 p.m. and Bingo starting at 7:00 p.m.

April is a busy month for us with club elections to be held at our April 10th meeting. We will hold our new member initiation at our April 24th meeting. New members will be treated to one of our great steak dinners.
Our next big club project is our Swimming Lessons program which will be held at Camp Arrah Wanna again this year. Lion David Buoy is our chairman and he is helped by a great crew of Lions. We are planning to begin registration for this year’s lessons by mid-May. We are also making plans to be able to instruct up to 90 kids this year. Then on Saturday June 1st we will be having a Mexican Dinner to help with the funding to support this year’s lessons. Lion Nolberto Perez is our Dinner Chairman. Lessons will begin starting on the week of Monday June 17th, and continue through the week of Monday June 24th.

This year’s Chuckwagon Breakfast will be held on Saturday July 6th and Sunday July 7th.
We’ll keep you informed on these and other events in future columns.
It’s great to be a Lion.
