Summer time is a great time for a picnic!

Poulsbo Lions filled Nelson Park on Aug. 19. Lion Beth chaired the social committee, out-doing herself with flowers on the tables and water balloons.

Lion Dick provided ears of corn. The club provided hot dogs and hamburgers, which were grilled to perfection by Lions Dennis and Chuck. Other members brought beans, salads and desserts.

After eating, Lion Manny presented his son - Lion John - with a 25-year chevron. Our club currently has several multi-generation family members.

Lion Manny was voted in as a Lifetime Member of the Poulsbo Noon Lions Club, and was gifted with a book of photos of club members and Lions' activities. Lion Manny joined the club in 1963 and has been involved all of those years. He was responsible for donating the vending machines that provided activity income for many years. He claims to be the Tail Twister who made the most money in fines. There are many high-spirited stories about Lion Manny.
