673 children screened for vision problems at Kitsap County Fair 2023

 




Thanks to all of the parents and grandparents who allowed us to do vision screening for your kids at the Kitsap Fair and Stampede. We screened 673 this year and hope that those that need help see an improvement in their lives.
Thanks to Miss West Sound Scholarship Program Miss Evergreen, International United Miss, their teens, preteens, parents and of course the Lions Clubs members who made it possible.

Picnic offers scholarship, new Leo to Lion and so much more!

More picnic photos: we had the presentation of our last 2022-23 scholarship to Nara Deller, a fun time playing games (with winners Glenn, Tiffany, Audrey and Gil), Leo game managers Quinny and Dagny, Lion Pat cooking up burgers, and District Governor Lisa Ikeda with our newest Lions Emalee Burgh and the official cake. Fun times!





Happy 18th birthday to Emalee Burgh (left) who was inducted as our third Leo to Lion by District Governor Lisa Ikeda.

 

Club picnic a rousing event

 


These are pictures from the Poulsbo Lions annual picnic this past Thursday. The evening included an induction of a Leo-to-Lion Emalee Burgh into the Poulsbo Lions Club, the presentation of our last 2022-23 scholarship to Nara Deller, lots of good food, and a fun time with the chicken corn-hole game.
These pictures include Zone Chair Pat and Sherri Burch (in charge of cooking corn), Lions Dori Swokowski and Pauline Ostheller, VDG2 Bob Johnson and friend, Leo leaders Audrey Crossgrove and Tiffany Le (cornhole champs!).
