FROM THE PREZ:
Our Club voted at Thursday’s meeting to donate $200 to the City of Cuyahoga Falls relief effort for Hurricane Harvey.  The City has adopted Humble TX, and the cash donations will go to the Humble Area Assistance Ministries.  We also voted to donate the same amount if there is such an effort for the Florida area affected by Hurricane Irma.

PLEASE NOTE CHANGE: Our lunch meeting will be at Noon at EMIDIO’S RESTAUIRANT, corner of W Bath Rd and State Rd. On Tap is closed for remodeling for a few months.  Our Dinner Meeting will be at Papa Joe’s on September 28th. Our Guest Speaker will be Joseph McCorvey of the Summit County Consumer Affairs Office, regarding “How to Spot a Scam”.

We have discussed a different event for next year at the Rubber Ducks.  More info as soon as I can set it up with the Ticket Office.
 
REVERSE RAFFLE – HELP!!!
As noted before, Lion John Parman will not be heading up the Raffle this year.  He is getting the date from Todaro’s so that we have that.  We really need a Lion to STEP UP and handle the Raffle.  John is more than willing to help.  This is our major fundraiser, so please help us keep it going!
 
SEPTEMBER DIRECTORS MTG:
Thanks to Lion John Parman for the Pizza and Wings Thursday. Lion Neil Bevere has offered to bring next month’s repast (did he mean Nancy?)

Rick Sabo will have results for us in the next month or so.
 
MUM SALES SATURDAY 9/16!!!!
The Mum Sales will be held from 9 AM to 4 PM this coming Saturday.  If you can help out, please stop by!!! Or at least come buy some!!!!
 
GALEP NEWS:
PDG Lion Neil Bevere stated that our Zone Chairman is Justin Knox, and that our Zone 2 is combined with Zone 3/4. The Annual Meeting will be held April 28-29, 2018 in Canton. The GALEP Meeting will be October 2nd at the Tallmadge Lions Hall, and if you are planning to have dinner, they need to know you are attending.  He also mentioned that the Winter Lions Retreat will be held at Salt Fork January 12-14, 2018.  This is strictly a social event, no Lions clothing – just regular stuff, no business conducted, it is really a great deal of fun and fellowship.
 
MELVIN JONES FELLOWSHIPS:
Lion Kathy (me) would like anyone who has a nomination for the Melvin Jones Fellowship to please send it in as soon as possible.  It would be nice to present these at the Punch Bowl in December.
  
DICTIONARY TIME AGAIN!:
Lion Bill Skinner stated that we have ordered 672 Dictionaries for distribution in October.  Chapel Hill Christian School will now be included, as they are actually in Cuyahoga Falls, not Akron.
 
MEMBERSHIP:
As always, please think about family and friends of yours who might enjoy joining our Club.  The fellowship and satisfaction from serving others is amazing!

REMEMBER!

IT’S GREAT BEING A LION!
