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).
Congratulations to the five students from the 2022 Class who were chosen to each receive a $1000 Scholarship Award by the Scholarship Committee. Here are our 2022 recipients, presented by Jane Mandli: Rylee Lutz, Emma Mittelsdorf, Helena Maki, Anneliese Bauer, and Paige Pulskamp.
Sawyer County Deputy Nelson (and Oscar) and Deputy Schick began the meeting by explaining the K-9 program used for both narcotics search and apprehension. They further explained the costs of acquiring these special dogs, their upkeep costs, equipment, etc., and the foundation set up to fundraise for the K-9 program. They will have to replace a recently retired dog and another (Oscar) in two years. Oscar demonstrated how well trained he is.
A check for $1000 from the Lions Club was presented to them by Tom Rowley.
