Diamond Jubilee anniversary and auction a rousing success

Our 75th Diamond Jubilee Anniversary and Auction is in the books! Many thanks to the 200+ people who showed up tonight at the Clearwater Casino Resort. It was great fun!

This event grossed $57,000... and $12,625 of that is for the docks and boat cradles for the Maritime Museum (our goal was $10,000). $27,000 goes to community service projects by the Poulsbo Noon Lions, and $4,000 by the Evening Pride Branch Club Lions.

Many thanks to the Lions, Leos and community members who made this a successful event.

 201 tickets were sold to the event

This is the first time we've hosted the event at the Clearwater Casino Resort. Above are the check-in/check-out tables with Kingston Leos and Evening Pride Lions ready to help.

Lion Mike Alvarado worked selling tickets with princesses.

More children's eyes screened

Our vision team screened another 29 children (aged 8 months to 2 years) at the Port Clallam Early Learning Center Sept. 25. Thank you Steve Calhoun, Karen Reitan, Ann Best and Eric Thanem!

Helping stock the food bank shelves

Poulsbo Lions/Rotary Joint Food Drive for Fishline this Friday and Saturday! We'll be at Red Apple, Central Market and Walmart between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m., accepting cash and grocery donations for the food bank.
We collected over 6,900 lbs of food during last year's Lions/Rotary Food Drive and over $2,000 in donations.
Even though you don't see the people in need, there are many homeless people and people living from paycheck to paycheck that depend on Fishline for food.

Vision screening at S'klallam ECEAP

The Poulsbo Noon Lions Club did Vision Screening at Port Gamble S’klallam Tribe's Early Childhood Education Program on 9/11. If we identify just one kid that needs further eye testing it is worth it. While we want all children to have perfect vision we know identifying kids with eyesight issues at an early age is a blessing we are happy to offer to North Kitsap schools both private and public.

Participating Lions were Steve Calhoun, Karen Reitan, Ann Best, and Ken Rury.
