Belle Fourche Lions win MD5 website award…….again!

District 5-SW Governor Lion Janice Wagner (center) made the trip from Hot Springs to Belle Fourche last Saturday (6/15/13) to present the club with a plaque honoring it for its website.  Receiving the award for the club is webmaster Lion Larry Miller.  The award was made during a very busy time for the club -- the All Car Rally at Herrmann Park in Belle Fourche.  You'll find this and other photos from the event in our All Car Rally gallery.  Pictured left-to-right are Lions Brian Kline, Tom Nary, Rick Walton, Rik Bartels, Larry Miller, Jan Wagner, Ron Ensz, Gerald Keil, and Rich Drabek.  This is the second year in a row that the club has won the award.

Even before South Dakota became a state, firefighters across the territory had organized training sessions that have become known as the South Dakota State Fire School.  

This year, the three-day session was held in Belle Fourche June 6-8.   More than 500 firefighters from across the state were on hand for training sessions that included considerable "hands on" activity.  Scheduling was tight, and participants were kept extremely busy.  But as schedules allowed, lunch was a necessity, some eating early -- some later.  

The Belle Fourche Lions Club was among the several vendors who provided lunch on Friday and Saturday.   Visit our 2013 Fire School gallery to get a glimpse of the rush for our Lions roast beef sandwiches, chips, soft drinks -- and delectable brownies!

Who am I? What is today? Where am I supposed to be?

Okay, let's face it, even fierce Lions have those days when it's difficult to remember things.

So we're going to try to make it easier for you.

We can't manage your schedule for you, but we can keep you abreast of Lions activities and events. And with our new "Calendar of Events" we can provide you with additional details that we've not been able to list previously.

The small calendar window shown at left is what we have used in the past to keep you up to date about Lions events.  

But... with the advent of summer, vacations, etc. and no Lions meetings for a while, it may be a bit difficult --  perhaps even downright tedious -- trying to remember what shift you signed up for ushering during the  Roundup.  Or even IF you signed up!  Who's in charge?  What time do I have to be there?  These and other important facts about Lions activities can now be listed in our all-new Calendar.  You'll find it among the topics listed in the Tab Bar at the top of the page.  

Tab Bar?  It looks like this:

The Tab Bar can lead you to lots of information; but CALENDAR is the latest tool that we think you might find useful.  

Of course, the key to keeping the Calendar up to date will be committee chairman.  The bar has been set high by Secretary Del Neumeister, who has been Johnny (Del)-on-the-spot with Minutes of our Lions meetings, which are archived on this site.  They, too, can be accessed through the Tab Bar.

Give the Calendar a try.  As always, your comments and suggestions are encouraged!  CLICK HERE to contact your Lions Webmaster.  Thanks.
