Prine wins Hillbilly Horseshoes Golden Plunger

And the Golden Plunger trophy goes to.... (drum roll, please).... Lion Dick Prine! Prine earned the special plunger AND a Whoopee cushion for his first-place finish in Hillbilly Horseshoes (toilet seats instead of horseshoes) during the Poulsbo Lions Club annual club picnic at Nelson Park Thursday, August 25.

Our annual club picnic features hamburgers and hotdogs, corn on the cob and whatever everybody else contributes!

Dick shows great form while throwing a toilet seat during Hillbilly Horseshoes.

23 screened for health issues at Fishline lot

Poulsbo Lions Club health screened 23 people at NK Fishline in Poulsbo. If even 1 person identified a health issue it was worth it, despite the 90+ heat. It takes about 7 volunteers per shift and the financial support of many clubs to make this van available to our communities. Lions Herb Armstrong and Ken Rury are shown above with Mike - a volunteer. They greeted people before they entered the unit.

Lion Larry Linn (right) helps with vision screening.

Lion Patrick Burch kept busy.

Shields receives zone chair plaque

Past District Governor Al Hedstrom gave Ginger Shields, our outgoing zone chair, a plaque for being Zone Chairman 2015-2016 at our August 4 lunch meeting.

Also, Poulsbo Lions took 650 pairs of eyeglasses to the Lions Eyeglass Recycling Center recently.

We have several things coming up, including continued work on the Fish Park boardwalk (it'll be completed Saturday), and a free pancake breakfast from 8-11 a.m. at North Kitsap High School August 30 for teachers and staff.
