Leo club pointers

offered in Adena

Susan Yeso, Leo Club chairman for the Martins Ferry Lions Club, shared information with the Adena Lions Club on how to establish and maintain a Leo Club in the local high school.

"It gives a club a challenge to form a Leo Club, and making such a club function and become active in the community takes dedication," she said.

Yeso told the Adena members about the number of youth in Martins Ferry who are Leo Club members and about some of their accomplishments, such as helping at Lions functions and offering an opportunity to become a Lions club member later in life.

She noted that there has to be an adviser from the Lions club to work with the youth to keep them involved and active. There are 5,700 Leo Clubs around the world, she noted, and this will be the future of Lions. "We need to be working with high school students," she said.

R.J. Konkoleski has been the focal point of getting a club started at Belmont College. At the last board meeting, he reported on the progress of this venture, suggesting that the club be the sponsor and help them with their dues for the first year. There are about 30 members interested, and dues will be $21.50 yearly, as they are students, he noted. The club approved giving them a donation for dues.

With the rose sale approaching, Randy Bednarski reported to the club about ordering roses and carnations by Tuesday, with the delivery date being Nov. 26. Roses are $15 and carnations are $13 per dozen.

Martin McKim took peace poster information to the Buckeye Local schools. He collected clothes for Urban Mission, a community project of the club each year. Laura Konkoleski reported on two names from which to choose for the Lions Club mascot. The cub voted on Hal from the choices of Hal and Dean.

Lloyd Hutchinson, president, reported that money for concrete for the handicapped parking places for the election board at the Lions Club meeting room was received and Dennis Kinsey needs to be informed about the church bell at Georgetown, it was noted.

The club will have a "giving tree" again this year for the Christmas season. They will change the forms to apply to include a telephone number so they can reach them to make delivery.
