Greetings to all Lions and readers. As summer is setting and fall is approaching Lions are off to a great start after a successful Community Partnership campaign.  Lion First Vice President Bryan Rennell has miraculously grown all of his hair back after hitting our goal.  Congratulations to Bryan and the club for all the hard work.  We continue in the busy month of September with an upcoming Service Saturday project at Family Promise of Montgomery County where the first 10 Lions will earn a free paint brush.  After we have painted our lives away the club will be participating in ‘Read for a Better Life’ program with Reaves Elementary School on Wednesday, Sept. 20th.  Conroe Noon is also actively looking for any current active military personnel to apply for our Hometown Hero Military project, where we will support a chosen service member and their family for the 2023-2024 club year. The deadline for applications is September 30th. At the end of the month we will be supporting vision with the Pre School Vision Screenings that will run through November in our area. Last but not least the club is preparing for their Annual Clay Shoot which will be held on Saturday, October 7th at Blackwood Gun Club.  Don’t let the clays fly by and make sure to sign up for your team now!

As the kids go back to school and we wind up our summer activities, the Conroe Noon Lions are gearing up for a busy year. 
Congratulations to Lion Shelia Thomas for being selected as ‘Lion of the Month’ for July.  Shelia keeps busy on many of our committees and has been a dedicated volunteer and supporter of the Texas Lions Camp.  Lion Jason Gilchrist was awarded an official blue badge after completing a number of club activities.  Great job, Jason!

One of the biggest projects of the year is the Community Partner campaign.

Lions mourn passing longtime leader Stewart

"Lions mourn passing longtime leader Stewart"

Eddie Davis / Conroe Noon Lions

These are the dog days of summer. The extreme temperatures this summer have everything to do with the tilt of the earth toward the sun, causing the sun’s rays to strike the Northern Hemisphere more directly for a longer period of time. The earth slightly wobbles as it rotates, thus shifting the plane … and this year it seems to have shifted slightly forward. The phrase “Dog Days of Summer” stems from the fact dogs tend to be a bit on the lazy side during the hottest days of summer. What’s your dog doing right now? But rest assured, Conroe Noon Lion members are still finding ways to make a difference.

I can’t believe it is about to be August.  That usually means we will be dealing with some hotter weather but not sure if that is possible this year.  Speaking of things heating up, that is almost our norm when dealing with our club.  Under the new leadership of President Jason Miller, we had possibly our longest lunch meeting on record.  Even though he started early, we still had to go through our typical agenda with our songs, pledges and door prizes.  Thanks, this week to Lions Debbie Glenn of the Red Brick Tavern and Sarah McClure for providing some goodies to award to some lucky attendees.

"Conroe Noon Lions annual Pigskin Preview meeting set for this Wednesday"

Rob Hamilton / Conroe Noon Lions

Greetings to all Lions and readers. So, why don’t celebrities worry about the heat? They have a lot of fans. Made you grin, possibly a little chuckle? I hope so. Having fun while serving our community is high on my priority list. I truly believe this is a common trait for the 300-plus members of the Conroe Noon Lions Club. This month we started a new Lions Club year and I’m anticipating fun and frivolity as we navigate through our annual community projects and endeavors. It seems to me that as soon as a new year starts, it ends. Time flies by when you’re engaged. If you’re stuck in “meh,” take yourself out of park and shift into drive by attending a meeting, Service Saturday, or one of our many projects. Let’s move on to the updates from our last Wednesday meeting.

Celebrate Legacy

"Lions celebrate legacy of Don Buckalew, look to the future with 11-year-old presenter"

Will Warren / Conroe Noon Lions

The date of Wednesday, July 12, was a special day at Conroe Noon Lions Club as we remembered a legendary Lion and welcomed a local community leader with a generous and youthful heart. The Club watched a video clip showing the late Mr. Buckalew sharing about how he became a Lion and when he joined the Conroe Noon Club. The club members stood out of respect for his words as the images played across the screen.

Conroe Noon is experiencing yet another bittersweet moment as we celebrate Jason Miller’s ascension to the Presidency while mourning the loss of yet another club monarch. Many who follow our club know the logo for Lions Club international has twin Lions, which per LCI founder Melvin Jones, “represent a lion facing the past with pride and the future with confidence, looking in all directions to render service.” We have said farewell to many wonderful Lions over the past few years and Past International Director Don Buckalew’s passing is one of the most significant for the Conroe Noon Lions Club. There has been no Lion in the history of our club who lived a life to be proud of, while facing the future with confidence and looking in all directions to render service.

Rob Hamilton / Conroe Noon Lions

The Conroe Noon Lions Club had perhaps one of its largest club meetings in history this past Wednesday at the Lone Star Convention Center. Our Community Partners Appreciation Luncheon brought together approximately 325 Lions, Community Partners and guests to break bread and hear about how, where, and who receives funding from the CNLC charity fund. Lion Jason Miller, our new President, first recognized the four levels of partners - Knights of the Blind, Guiding Light, Vision Ambassadors, and Sight Savers. Over half the room was standing proudly.

The Conroe Noon Lions Club 2022-23 year has finally come to an end, and it went out with a bang! This past Friday night was the annual installation banquet at the April Sound Lakeside Room. It was a perfect setting for our ‘Set Sail’ theme to end a yearlong mission to “Row the Boat.” The CNLC welcomed all new club officers and our next fearless leader: Club President Jason Miller! A fun night was had by all, and we are ready for another successful year.

Summertime is here! The signs are all around us with hot temperatures, students out for the summer, and a new Lions year upon us. It’s hard to believe Lion Warner Phelps is finishing his year as president soon. Friday night should be a fun-filled night at the 2023 Conroe Noon Lions Club Installation Banquet at the April Sound — Lakeside Room. Warner will be “thrown overboard” as 1st VP Lion Jason Miller will take over the helm. This year’s theme is “Setting Sail” which aligns with President Warner’s message of, “Row the Boat”. I am looking forward to an evening with some of our best Lions as we celebrate a successful year and kick off a new one.

Greetings to all Lions and readers. May certainly has been a busy month for the Conroe Noon Lions Club. Let’s check the list of accomplishments. First, our Annual Spring Style Show featuring special needs adults from the New Danville community. Watch out New York and Paris. Kudos to Lion Scharlene Valdez and committee. Second, Texas Lions Camp Workday. Over 40 Lions and family members traveled to TLC, our camp for diabetic and physically challenged children and knocked out the entire to-do list to make the camp ready for summer. Memories made. Well done Lion Andrew Perry and committee. Third, 750 scrump-dillyicious sno-cones served to students at the Reaves Elementary School Field Day. Whew, what a day! Thank you, Lion Nicole Moon, and the sticky committee.

Rob Hamilton / Conroe Noon Lions Club

Greetings to all Lions and readers. As the saying goes, “April showers bring May flowers.” The Conroe Noon Lions Club certainly has a lot of programs, projects, and events blooming this month. According to Committee Chair, Lion Andrew Perry, CNLC had over 40 Lions along with family members travel to the Texas Lions Camp this past Saturday for a workday to prepare the camp for a big summer serving boys and girls with disabilities. It’s also a great time for our Lions to serve outside our community, get to know one another, create friendships, and make memories. I can’t wait to hear at our next club meeting on Wednesday all the tales of accomplishments and calamity. At last week’s meeting we hosted our annual Special Spring Style Show. Committee Chair Lion, Scharlene Valdez, and her committee created an extravaganza the Paris fashion icons would be envious of. Our featured models were special needs adults from the New Danville community. Brooke, David, Alyssa, Jordan, Judith, Seth and Jessica each sported a themed attire for “A Day at the”… Beach, Fishing, Bowling, you get the idea.

James was gracious as many members came over and posed for a photo with him for his 88th birthday!

Lions Mourn

"Conroe Noon Lions mourn passing of 2 longtime members"

Rob Hamilton / Conroe Noon Lions Club

Greetings to all Lions and readers. It's great to be a Lion! This article I’m sad to report two of our Lions passed recently. Lion Dick Giuffre died suddenly of a heart attack. Dick was a member for over 34 years and served the club as President in 1994-1995. Lion Dick’s wit and humor will be missed. Whenever he came to the podium or introduced a guest, Lions would shout out “stand up Dick” in reference to his height. In my memories he will have always walked tall with a getter’ done attitude. In Lion Dick’s honor- WHOOP! Our prayers and condolences to his wife, Elaine, and family. Lion Ann Johnson, a member for almost 13 years, was 105 years old when she passed.
