Lions nourish attendees at All Car Rally!

Despite a bit of nasty weather and a slow Friday, it was a busy day Saturday (6/24/17) at Herrmann Park as car enthusiasts emerged for a fun day – and a bit of nourishment!  Lions served burgers and soft drinks.  Above, Lion Deb Elliott serves fresh doughnuts to a couple of happy ladies.  Lion Treasurer Rich Drabek reports that the club grossed close to $1,800.  Net profits will help support our Lions projects!  Thanks to all who turned out to help with this event.

It was 27 years ago (1990): A new shelter in Herrmann Park!

Congratulations Lion Chuck! 50 Years a Lion... and counting!


It's hard to fathom the dedication and work that Lion Chuck Livingston has demonstrated during more than 50 years as a Lion!  It was another special moment during our club meeting this week (4/13/17) as Belle Fourche Lions Club President Joyce Drabek presented Lion Livingston with a congratulatory letter from Chancellor Bob Corlew, President of Lions Clubs International. 

"Congratulations on your 50th anniversary as a Lions club member.  And not only have you been a member for 50 years, you have also had perfect attendance.  That is incredible!" wrote President Corlew. All of Lion Livingston's colleagues echo that sentiment.  Congratulations, Lion Chuck.....and Well Done!

An award, a project preview, and a busy meeting!

Perfect Attendance pin for Lion Bob Drabek!
A busy spring is shaping up for Belle Fourche Lions. Projects were outlined at our meeting this week (2/9/17) at Grap's Burgers & Brews.

Among the first of several coming events is our Lions Pancake Breakfast, slated for Sunday, March 26th at the Moose Lodge.  There's always need for Lion workers, so members are encouraged to contact Lion Robert Schnaible, who is chairman.  This is a key fundraising effort for Lions and helps support many of our community service projects.

After Easter, Lions will conduct a Vision Screening for Belle Fourche Kindergarten children.  It's an all-day event scheduled for Tuesday, April 18.  Again, volunteers are needed, so review your schedule and consider adding your name to the list!

Fast on the heels of the vision screening comes our Lions Dodgeball Tournament on Saturday, April 22 at the Belle Fourche Area Community Center.  Mark your calendars!

With sights on things to come,  Lions also took care of a bit of business at this meeting.

Lion Robert Drabek was presented with a perfect attendance pin from club president Lion Joyce Drabek (photo above).  Congratulations Lion Drabek!

Belle Fourche Lions supported the Middle School Science Fair held last week (2/7/17) and we're pleased to share the names of the two students who were recipients of $50 each for their winning projects.  Dylan Tanninen was recognized for his "Effects of Ashes on Plant Growth" project, while Reese McKenna received her award for her "Electrolyte Challenge."  Congratulations to both of these young people.

Our Lions "Peace Poster" competition is also being rolled out.  You'll likely be hearing more about that from Chairman Lion Nary.

Lions should be alert for a forthcoming survey regarding our meeting location/dates, and that topic will likely top the agenda for our next meeting, Tuesday, February 28.  See you at Grap's!

Thanks to Lion SecretaryDel Neumeister for his timely Minutes, which you can review in detail on our Minutes Page.
