A girl named Allisa won the first hour of Hooked on Fish with a 14-inch fish; unfortunately, there's no photo.

This photo, however, is of Connor, age 8, and his brother Teagan, age 4. Connor won a nice tackle box with a 13 1/4-inch fish. His brother netted an 11-inch trout.

Our Hooked on Fish event saw 300 kids coming out to fish for trout. It also netted $70 in donations.

Lion June got these photos. To the right is Gray, holding two fish, and his friend Daxton. Both boys are from Poulsbo.

Come hungry and bring your friends to breakfast!

Lions on the prowl May 1 and 2 for White Canes

Members of the Poulsbo Noon Lions Club will take to North Kitsap streets on Friday and Saturday, May 1-2, to raise funds as part of the annual White Cane Days.

All donations from the community will go to the Northwest Lions Foundation for Sight and Hearing in Seattle, where 2,500 corneas were transplanted last year. In addition, the Foundation helps low-income families pay for sight-related surgeries and equipment.
According to Linda and Dottie, project co-chairs, “We raised around $5,000 last year and hope to meet or exceed that goal. Regionally, 95 percent of the Lions clubs in the states of Washington and northern Idaho will be out in force on May 1-2. With so many good causes needing help in North Kitsap, any donation, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.”

Stevenson quints celebrate skating birthday

On March 29, the Stevensons celebrated their quints' 3rd birthdays at Skateland in Bremerton. Their actual birthday is March 30.

Lions Larry and Hiromi, along with Nicoleta, attended the bash for the quints - Scarlett, Aniston, Cami, Weston, and Belle.

It was a festive affair with lots of kids and lots of action everywhere, all the time! All of the kids wore skates. Their abilities varied from pretty good to "don't let go!"

Older sister Lilly, age 5, is a good skater who apparently has inherited some of her dad's skating abilities. He was a member of the 1992 U.S. Olympic team on the roller speed-skating demo, which was a demonstration sport at that Olympics. The kids' grandfather is co-owner of Skateland.

The Stevensons have their own website:
