"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.

Ann was born in 1917 the same year the first Lions Club was formed, and just around the close of World War I. Imagine all that she has seen and done. Lion Ann was our club’s second centenarian. Prayers and condolences to Lions Karl and Jane Johnson. This past Wednesday Lion President Warner Phelps recognized Lion Sandy Apostolo as ‘Lion of the Month’ for February. Sandy earned this honor through her tireless work coordinating auction items for this year’s Legend of the Lion - Dinner/Dance & Auction. Give a roar for Sandy. Our Community Partner recognized this week was ORRICK. Thank you.
