We had a good turnout for this meeting. Back from his summer hideout in Canada was Lion Ward Eister. Lion Larry Edson was also in attendance, and future Lion Hobee made his second of three visits (he also helped work the beer booth at Oktoberfest this past weekend).
Save the Date: Lion Bert Caro let us know that the club’s Holiday Party is tentatively set for Wednesday, December 13 at 6:30pm, at Aldo’s.
Campbell’s volunteer appreciation dinner takes place Nov. 1 at Nordahl Hall, 580 W. Parr Ave. in Los Gatos. It is a free event in appreciation for all of those individuals (including our club members) who volunteered over the past year at events and activities like Oktoberfest. If you are going to attend, register with the Campbell Chamber of Commerce so that they can order enough food.
The Lions Eye Foundation’s latest newsletter mentions our club for donating $1,000 last year. Note that most of our donations last year were higher than usual because of a surplus of unspent money in the charity fund, left over from the previous 3 years.
The club received a thank you from Stop Hunger Now for our donation to help them purchase food for distribution. They will need volunteers to help pack the food on November 2nd. Contact Lion Pres. Judy if you are interested in helping.
We continue to collect pill bottles (labels removed), plastic bottle caps, and cell phones—along with our traditional used eyeglass collection. If you have any of these items, bring them to a meeting.
