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.

Spring Style Show

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.

It was a memorable day of birthday announcements and entertaining “speed dating” as the Conroe Noon Lions Club members gathered this past Wednesday at the Lone Star Convention Center. We were reminded quickly about the incredible legacy and leadership our Club has had over the years when the Lions joined in serenading Past President & Past District Governor James Stewart. James was gracious as many members came over and posed for a photo with him for his 88th birthday!

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.

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.

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.
