Great reasons to attend spring conference

Dear Poulsbo Noon Lions,
You have great reasons to attend the Spring MD-19 District Convention on March 13 and 14 - our club will pay your $8 registration fee (and you need to register by March 7), and take care of your $22 lunch tab on Saturday, which is when the awards will be announced.
Lion Karl Ostheller has been making sure our club is entered in many categories, so you won't want to miss out!
The convention will be held at the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Tacoma. Hope to see you there!

Open swim our club hosts brings in at least 40

Our first free open swim today was a HUGE success - 40 happy swimmers enjoying the water. Lifeguards report "far more" use of the pool today compared to an average Saturday open swim period. A big BRAVO ZULU to Lion Dick Prine for heading up this project.

Our club hosted the swim from 12-2 p.m. Saturday, February 21, for $200. At least two more events may be forthcoming.

Lions return with handful of awards from curling


Ten Poulsbo Lions made the journey to British Columbia for a weekend of curling Feb. 13-15. Our Lions have made the trek for 13 years in a row, receiving the traveling trophy this year. Herb Armstrong received a special wooden crutch-type award so he can pee standing up (you'd have to see it and hear the poem to understand). High-scoring teams were the Burches (Pat and Sherri) and the Prines (Dick and Linda). Others attending were Joyce Smith and her friend, Elda Armstrong, and Scott and Bev Puhn.

Here's a good look at our Lions club

Photo by Dennis Peters
Trying to get a good photo of our Lions club is like... well, herding cats! Here's our first try at taking a Poulsbo Noon Lions Club photo. You can see we tried to represent many of the activities we do - pancake breakfast, flag set-up and take-down on holidays, White Canes, highway litter clean-up, and more with a variety of props.
We'll share the latest group photo, taken by Lion Dottie Ridgeway last Thursday, soon!
