JUNE EVENTS

District Governor Bill Anderson and his wife Karen came to the meeting and addressed the membership.  They have met or will meet with all Wisconsin Lions clubs by this summer.  They explained their duties and recommended that taking a tour of the Wisconsin Lions Camp would be well worthwhile.  Wisconsin has the 4th largest number of Lions clubs in the nation.  Bill handed out chevrons for 10 years length of service to Judy and Tom Rowley, Tom Matthiae, and John Wagener (not present).

Thank you Lions volunteers, Roger Osmundson and his crew of volunteers for the group effort in building the Seeley Hills Trail Shelter

Thank you, Tom Matthiae, and Dan Tiller, and other Lions volunteers, for your work on the firewood shed at the Seeley Hills Trail Shelter.

 

The building, located about two miles from Seeley, is open to the public year-round. Enjoy it and the trails!

Thank you everyone for the  $300 cash and check donations that have been left in the donation box.  Over the winter we collected about $200

All money has gone toward the building projects for the shelter and woodshed.

Future needs for this project are the following:
