Young and Kline receive awards at September 22 Lions meeting

Members of the Belle Fourche Lions Club received an update this week (9/22/15) on progress being made with construction of another Lions Shelter in Belle Fourche.

"We're waiting for the tin, and hopefully, it'll be in over the next few days," said Lion Rick Walton, who is spearheading the project.

But the highlight of the meeting was the presentation of two awards.

Lion Cherlynn Young is shown with Lion Rick Walton after he presented her with the Lions Key Award, recognizing her good work in recruiting new Lion members.   Lion Young was a charter member of the Northern Lights Lions Club, which merged with the Belle Fourche Lions Club last year.  Congratulations Lion Young!

Lion Brian Kline, at left, received his plaque as a Belle Fourche "Lion of the Year" for 2015 from Lion Rick Walton.  His selection had been announced earlier this year.  Lion Kline, who has held numerous club offices — including the presidency — has been in the middle of nearly all Lion activities over the past several years.  Congratulations Lion Kline! 

New Lions shelter takes shape near Herrmann Park

The frame of the latest Lions shelter is taking shape adjacent to Herrmann Park.  Lions have constructed about a dozen shelters throughout the various city parks in Belle Fourche.  This one started going up last weekend (9/19/15) next door to Bowman Hall.

Fair weather allowed much to be done by Lion volunteers.  These were among the Lions members who have helped in erecting the new shelter.  For a closer view of this good-looking pride of Lions, visit our Lions Photo Gallery

Shown standing (left-to-right) are:  

Lions Joyce Drabek, Bob Schnaible, P.J. Sloan, Rick Walton, Frank Walton, Jim Osloond, Del Neumeister, and Brian Kline; seated are: Sue Neumeister and Ron Ensz.  Lion Rich Drabek — also among the crew — was behind the camera for this photo.  Thanks, too, to Lion Joyce Drabek for her help in obtaining pictures of this important project.

Following their hard work, the group enjoyed some BBQ sandwiches, chips, brownies, and cookies, thanks to Lions Sue Neumeister and Joyce Drabek.   Thanks for the great job Lion volunteers.

Check back for photos of the shelter completion, which will be coming soon!
