STEUBENVILLE — Lions clubs from District 13 gathered recently at Scaffidi’s Restaurant and Tavern for a Zone 7 dinner meeting, hosted by the Brilliant Lions Club.

Wooster Noon Lions Club member Deb Mosier, second vice district governor, 13 OH 3, was a guest.

William Snyder, zone 7 chairman, presided at the meeting where David Porter, Brilliant Lions president, gave the invocation. Club reports were presented, and Terry Snyder, first district governor of Ohio 13, overviewed projects being undertaken by clubs in the district, including a pop tab collection and the need to develop a zone project.

Projects and event dates noted included the STEPS Walk at the Akron Zoo on Sunday, a fundraiser for research dollars for Akron Children’s Hospital, Rainbow Baby and Children’s Hospital for research grants in Ohio.

It was announced that visits will be made to the Toronto Lions Club on Sept. 12; the Mingo club, Sept. 18; Brilliant Club, Sept. 19; and Richmond club on Sept. 26. On Oct. 5, state committee meetings will be held, and Oct. 15 is White Cane Day. The next zone meeting will be held at 6 p.m. on Nov. 18 at Eat n’ Park with the Mingo Lions Club serving as host.

Nina Cleave of the Dillonvale-Mount Pleasant Lions Club, has been added as district administrator.

I am in awe of all that the clubs in our zone do, but you need to report those activities and projects,” Terry Snyder said. She said the Richmond Lions Club has spread its wings and grown, bringing in young people. “We need to get more young people in the clubs. The more hands, the more we can do.”

The Brilliant club had eight members attending and held a 50/50 drawing with half benefiting the district. Kevin Huggins of Brilliant was the winner.

The Brilliant Lions Club donated $150 to the Buckeye Local Touchdown Club, and a family picnic will be held today at the Brilliant Park shelter, beginning at 6 p.m.
