Audrey Winkle/ Conroe Noon Lions

Tis Halloween season! The Conroe Noon Lions Club started the Halloween celebration off with guest speaker Leah Lamp. Leah is a long-time resident of Montgomery and a natural storyteller.  It was a thrill to listen to her share stories of Halloween tales and urban legends.  Stories included the becoming of the Jack-O-Lantern, the ironic death of Jack Daniels, the ‘Green Man’ legend, the Wunsche family’s unsolved tragedy and of local cemeteries haunted by Civil War soldiers. 

You can catch Leah Lamp on her podcast Remnant Stew where she shares bizarre and intriguing true stories.

Leah also offers haunted tours through historic Montgomery. Check out her company Lamplight Ghost Tours to book an experience.

The CNLC continues their community service and has had several events this past week and even more coming up! 

The Club held their monthly Service Saturday Oct. 21 at BridgeWay Home, a Yes to Youth property. Yes to Youth is a nonprofit in Montgomery County that provides crisis intervention, counseling, and suicide prevention services.  Our very own Lion, Mitzi Pearson, is a Development Manager for Yes to Youth!  The day was heartwarming and filled with smiles! Lions alongside the residents decorated cookies, transformed landscape, and unpacked new kitchen items.  Please check back for announcements of next month’s service Saturday. 

It was an honor to celebrate with the Reeves Elementary students at the Atten-Dance.  Students with perfect attendance were recognized in front of their peers and awarded with a treat filled day!  CNLC is super proud of these kiddos! 

Pre-school Vision Screenings continue throughout the month.  Approximately 65 kids have been tested so far!  A vision screening also took place at the VFW's Trunk or Treat on Saturday.  

Lion Bryan Rennell announced that CNLC will be bringing back ‘Conroe Noon at Night.’ This fall membership mixer will be held on Nov. 9 from 5:30 – 7pm at the Table of Madeley. Please join us for fellowship and lots of FUN

This year’s CNLC - Hometown Military Hero is Jonathan Burke.  Jonathan has always had a passion for serving.  He followed that passion and joined the Army two years ago.  He is currently deployed to Syria.  Please keep Jonathan and his family in your thoughts and prayers while he serves our country.
