The Cunningham Lions Club met Tuesday, Sept. 11, at 6:30 p.m. at the Community Center with twelve members present. Following a meal prepared by Racette’s Café, Lion President Frank McClellan called the meeting to order.
Secretary-Treasurer Phil Harris read minutes from previous two meetings and presented a brief treasurer’s report. At the request of Mr. McClellan, Phil listed the highlights of the club’s activities for the past year, including finishing the walking path project in the City Park, hosting a Pancake Supper to benefit the Community Center, co-sponsoring a White Elephant Auction with the Cunningham Museum and donating the Lions Club portion of the proceeds to the City for improvements to the downtown Cunningham, and several ongoing projects including the collection of eyeglasses at the First National Bank and assisting with the gate at local football games.
While discussing projects for the upcoming year, members decided to donate the Lions’ share of the annual Christmas Parade Day Soup and Chili feed to the Cunningham Museum, to consider holding another While Elephant Auction in 2014, to have a Pancake Supper in 2013, and to install signs at the south and north city limits to replace those that used to be east and west of Cunningham.
The local Lions Club is always looking for projects to benefit the community. The club usually meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month. For more information on community projects or to become a member of the Cunningham Lions Club, contact Frank McClellan, Phil Harris, or Jack Meyers.
