Greetings, Lions and Friends of Lions!
Thank all of you for a fantastic Fall semester. Over the last 16 weeks, we have:
*Helped build townhouses in Woodbury through Habitat for Humanity
*Supported the Out of the Darkness walk to prevent suicide
*Gathered about 800 lbs. of food for the local food shelf and delivered it
*Supported the Fight Against Hunger Walk at the Mall of America
*Raised funds helping the Rosemount Lions Club with Christmas tree set-up and sales
*Won the Minnesota Vikings JR Quarterback Award for service – $1000!
*Participated in and helped host the Regional Banquet of Lions for our District 5M-6
There are two ways to serve as Lions:
1) Help out with at least one event and you’re a member (get a free t-shirt and membership to Lions International (a $40 value).
2) Become a Board member. We meet about once a month (complimentary lunch is served). We decide as a team what additional services we want to support. All leadership positions are for one semester.
The election will be on Wednesday, January 12 at 1:00 p.m. in room 2-603. These are the board position that will be filled at the meeting: president, vice-president, marketing director, secretary, treasurer, and tail-twister (public relations).
Next semester, we’re already are looking at a number of cool event suggestions:
*“Be the Match” fundraiser
*Bed Race down Buck Hill to support Bridging, Inc.
*The Annual Chili Cook Off
Be a leader! Have fun, feel good, make friends, develop great contacts, and build that resume!
To all Lions, THANK YOU for a wonderful semester! –Brett

The Lions Club, in partnership with the Mostly Sunny Club, are collecting food for the local food shelf from November 3 – November 22. Drop off all non-perishable items on the table in the Commons area. The food shelf reports this time of year is in particular need, so we appreciate your support!
This picture shows the half-way point in our food collection. One more week to hit our goal of 1000 lbs.!

Habitat for Humanity 2014 was a success! The DCTC Lions Club put down a laminate wood floor and painted the interior walls of several town homes in Woodbury during MEA break. These homes were made for those less fortunate, and the Lions were there to help.
