"Conroe Noon Lions: As Montgomery County Fair kicks off, C. Pat Davis discusses CNLC Fair Buyers Group"

Sharene Carr / Conroe Noon Lions

Greetings from the Conroe Noon Lions Club, the “Greatest Lions Club in the World.” Wednesday brought another great luncheon meeting with an excellent group of people. Our meeting started with our usual songs, pledges, invocation, and introduction of guests. It was a men vs women battle on our weekly song rendition of “Smile” with the men clearly leading the way in terms of volume. The Community Partner of the Spotlight of the Week went to Pierson & Pierson, CPA’s. Thank you for your support of the Conroe Noon Lions Club. In honor of longtime Lions Club member, Dick Guiffre who recently passed away, all fines collected during club this week will be donated to our beloved Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville Texas.

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.

Fair Preparations

"Conroe Noon Lions prepare for Montgomery County Fair later this month"

Will Warren / Conroe Noon Lions Club

Since 1957 one signature event has been able to provide millions back to the youth of Montgomery County while also providing nearly two weeks of entertainment, delicious food, and indelible experiences for all involved. The Montgomery County Fair & Rodeo is back for its 66th year and this week we had the opportunity to hear about the impact of the event and also prepare for another year of Lions Club support.

Conroe Noon Lions Club celebrated big last week, hosting our annual “Legend of the Lion” - Dinner/ Dance & Auction Thursday night at the Lonestar Convention Center. The theme for 2023 was “A Lions Masquerade,” and with over 450 in attendance, it was amazing to see so many friends, Lions, and community members dressed in their best.

Our Wednesday club meeting on Jan. 25 was full of recognition, friendly competition, and some wildly entertaining responses by our newer members to their interview questions. During announcements we learned that there is still a need for silent and live auction items for the annual “Legend of the Lion” - Dinner/Dance & Auction event coming up on Thursday, Feb. 16, at Lone Star Convention Center.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have heard the buzz around town about Conroe’s ranking as No. 6 in the nation for population and economic growth from a new study by SmartAsset. While no surprise to those who’ve looked out their car window in the past 10 years or tried grocery shopping at H-E-B, the statistics on Conroe’s growth are staggering.
