Lion Rose Russell was also on hand to discuss the upcoming Indiana State Fair.  This is the Indiana Lions Foundation’s biggest fundraiser.  They need ticket takers, ticket scanners, kiosk monitors, and ticket stampers at the exit gates.  Many volunteers are needed from Lions Clubs throughout the State.

Three Milestone Chevron Awards were also announced at the meeting.  Robert Kizer for 35 years of service, Doug Feece for 30 years of service, and Don Morrison for 20 years of service.  From the smallest project to the largest undertaking, their years of service have made an impact on their community.  Just another example of our Lions motto, “As Lions, We Serve.”  If you or anyone you know would like to join the Plymouth Lions Club, please contact any Lions Club member or mail your request to The Plymouth Lions Club, PO Box 186 Plymouth IN 46563.
