Blue vest, new members and a winning berry pie

It was a busy noon lunch meeting for the Poulsbo Lions April 11. Above, sponsoring Lion Lynnea assisted Lion Joe Stenstrom with his new blue vest, which he earned by participating in the Easter Egg Hunt March 30 at Raab Park.
Here are our two newest Lions - Janet Marie Valiga (sponsor: Lion Eric Thanem) and Gwen Woods (sponsor: Lion Jim Stark). They were inducted at today's meeting.
And Lion Elda Armstrong won first-place honors for her Wild Blackberry Pie at Spring Conference. Lions brought desserts, which were first judged, then enjoyed by all April 5.
The scheduled program didn't show up, so Lions Dick, Scott, and Kent brought their bows and arrows to share.
