PDG Leo married Roberta "Bobbie" Steward in April 1947. They moved to Lubbock in 1961 after he was transferred by his company from Marion, Ohio.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Cindy and PDG Danny Leake and the rest of the Seiter family.

LAMESA CENTENNIAL LIONS CLUB ORGANIZED

A final organizational meeting was held January 16 for the new Lamesa Centennial Lions Club.

The club has the distinction of being a Centennial Charter Club, formed during the 100th anniversary of Lions Clubs International.

At present, there are 33 charter members with prospects for more before the charter period closes.

Lion Allean Jasmine-Maloy is the Charter President; Dale Alwan is the Charter Vice-President; Claudia Morales is the Charter Secretary; and Matt Lara is the Charter Treasurer.

The new club will meet the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at Noon.  Their February 9 meeting will be held at the Lamesa Boys and Girls Club. 

Lamesa previously had both a Noon Club and an Evening Club but they eventually disbanded.

Congratulations to all who worked to form this new club!

DID YOU KNOW??

The roots of District 2-T2 began in 1922 when a Lions Club was formed in Snyder, TX. It failed to go -- but on August 28, 1924, the "granddaddy" of all our clubs was chartered. At that time, it was the 51st Lions Club in Texas and the 761st club organized in the world. At that time, there were only 39,943 members in the U.S. and Canada (Source: 1977 -78 District 2-T2 Windmill newsletter).
