Helping stock the food bank shelves

Poulsbo Lions/Rotary Joint Food Drive for Fishline this Friday and Saturday! We'll be at Red Apple, Central Market and Walmart between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., accepting cash and grocery donations for the food bank.
We collected over 6,900 lbs of food during last year's Lions/Rotary Food Drive and over $2,000 in donations.
Even though you don't see the people in need, there are many homeless people and people living from paycheck to paycheck that depend on Fishline for food.

Vision screening at S'klallam ECEAP

The Poulsbo Noon Lions Club did Vision Screening at Port Gamble S’klallam Tribe's Early Childhood Education Program on 9/11. If we identify just one kid that needs further eye testing it is worth it. While we want all children to have perfect vision we know identifying kids with eyesight issues at an early age is a blessing we are happy to offer to North Kitsap schools both private and public.

Participating Lions were Steve Calhoun, Karen Reitan, Ann Best, and Ken Rury.

Weaver earns top award at annual picnic

Another Poulsbo Lions successful picnic is in the books. Lions from Poulsbo Noon and Evening Pride gathered in Nelson Park for an evening of food, fun, food, laughter, with more food and camaraderie.

DG Ron Smircich made his official visit at the festivities, including the annual tradition of highly competitive hillbilly horseshoes. DG Ron even got into the action by throwing the infamous toilet seat. He eventually lost to the now two-time champ, Lion Chuck Weaver.
