All Poulsbo Lions interested in attending a planning session for the upcoming year are invited to the Dahlquist's home in Belfair, on September 10 at 10 a.m.

Past District Governor Dave Pratt will be facilitating.

Calendar sales underway

If you want your family's names and anniversaries on the Poulsbo Lions calendar for 2012, you need to contact a Lion member now. Each calendar is only $6, with 100 percent of the proceeds going back into the North Kitsap community.

Ad space is also available for a nominal amount.

Calendars need to be paid for by September 15, 2011, and given to Lion Larry Linn.

Every Poulsbo Lion selling 20 calendars or more gets a free steak dinner in October.

Project New Hope

Lion Dick Risley of Evening Pride Branch is heading the Kitsap County branch of Project New Hope.

The project will soon become district-wide. It provides a retreat setting for returning military and their families, to help them as they return stateside after being in a conflict zone.

A fund-raising event will take place at the Clearwater Casino at a date to be announced. If you'd like to help with the project, please contact Lion Dick.
