1ST 2016-2017 DISTRICT MEETING A BIG SUCCESS!

 

Our thanks to Lion President Clay Miller and the Post Lions Club for hosting the first District meeting of the 2016-2017 year.  There were more than 60 Lions in attendance.

 

A special highlight of the meeting was the painting of a Lion's face by Snyder artist Nathalie Kelley.  The painting was auctioned off with proceeds to benefit Texas Lions Camp.  Our lucky winner was Lion Curtis Lay of the Lubbock Redbud Lions Club.

 

Special recognition was given to Lions Debbie Ball and Steve Mackey of Snyder; John Martinez of Levelland; Jim Tirey of Plainview and Carolyn Hargrove of Roby.

 

Reports about Lions programs and activities were given.

 

Motivational speaker/author Bear Mills was the luncheon speaker.
