Lions honor Greathouse

NEW CUMBERLAND – The New Cumberland Lions Club met recently, with Anna Raines giving the invocation and Jim Wells leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

President Betsy Wells read the correspondence, and the secretary’s and treasurer’s reports were submitted and accepted as read.

Drawing tickets are on sale, and the winner will receive a quarter beef. The drawing will be held at the District N conference Nov. 13 in Pipestem. The proceeds will benefit the Lions Club International Foundation.

The club was invited to an appreciation picnic Oct. 9 by the Seeing Hand organization of Wheeling.

The group received a banner patch for being a Plus-1 club.

Bob Manypenny asked members without food handlers’ cards to take the course, because at least one person per shift during a pulled pork fundraiser must have a card.

The next pulled pork fundraiser is Aug. 24 and volunteers are needed.

Volunteers also are needed for a four-hour event Sept. 7 at the Weirton Event Center to sell pulled pork.

Russ Flanigan asked for volunteers for the Dan Dauge car show Labor Day at the Highlands.

Wells is updating the directory and asked for committee volunteers to plan District Governor’s Night, Christmas party and June installation of officers.

A steak fry will be held Aug. 27.

Flanigan presented Don Greathouse with the Leonard Jarrett Award, the highest honor given by the West Virginia Lions Sight Conservation Foundation. Greathouse has been involved and volunteering with the New Cumberland club for several years.

Richard Blackwell motioned to adjourn, seconded by Brian Webster.
