"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.

We had the pleasure of hearing Lion Chuck Martin, Past District Governor and a current Director of the Texas Lions Foundation (TLF). Lion Chuck shared TLF was formed in 1984 for the purpose of providing emergency grants. Back then the Lions sold mints to raise money. Now the small amount of two dollars per member is contributed annually to TLF through each club in the state of Texas. Most recently the Pasadena Lions Club received a grant to assist Pasadena citizens when a tornado ripped through their city. In 2022 TLF provided eighty-six thousand in grants state-wide. Globally, the Conroe Noon Lions Club also supports the Lions Club International Fund (LCIF). LCIF also provides funds for humanitarian relief when a natural disaster strikes. Chuck has been a Lion since 1974 and has seen firsthand how TLF and LCIF have come to aid on many occasions. Thank you, Lion Chuck, for all you and the TLF directors are doing to sustain this cause.
