Here are a couple of photos from the Poulsbo Lions Club's First Annual St. Patrick's Dinner Celebration March 14.
Our club put in approximately 130 hours of labor for this project and raised more than $2,000 for Lions projects in the community.
We also had four Leos from North Kitsap High and five from Kingston High serving dinners.
Lion Joyce (in green, of course) was the head chef. In the middle is LEO Taylor from Kingston Middle School, with Lion Tom adding cabbage to plates (pictured on the right).
Below, Lions June and Chuck fill up plates with potatoes and carrots, and the Risley clan eagerly awaits their food.
Here's a report on Spring Conference from King Lion Karl:
"Even though Poulsbo came through with a brilliant effort, we were once more judged to be a 2nd-place club. Our Poulsbo singers took 2nd place in the musical comedy section.
"The new vice district governor is Dan Comsia of Lakewood First.
"I am happy to report that Poulsbo took 1st place in the achievement speech about our Fish Park boardwalk and the camaraderie of our club. Poulsbo also receive the 1st-place award for club scrapbook. Our club newsletter won a 4th-place ribbon.
"A big thank you to all the Poulsbo Lions that came down to sing and came Saturday (March 7) for the nominating and voting."

The Melvin Jones Fellowship is recognition of a commitment to humanitarian work. It is not an award in the tradition of Lions awards presented for specific accomplishments.
The fellowship is an honor given to individuals who contribute the equivalent of US$1,000 to LCIF, and persons for whom such donations are made by others.
The fellowship is the foundation's highest honor and represents humanitarian qualities such as generosity, compassion, and concern for the less fortunate.
Melvin Jones Fellows receive a lapel pin and a personalized wall plaque in honor of their commitment to helping others.
The fellowship was created in 1973, and is named for the founder of Lions Clubs International, Melvin Jones.
This photo shows past Melvin Jones recipients: Lions Dick P., Manny, Dennis, Jim, Herb and Dick R.
