Highlights of the May 28th Belle Fourche Lions club meeting

Lion Melodey Zupan was presented with a Diamond Award for bringing new members into the Lions Club.  Thanks Lion Melodey! (Lion Del Neumeister photo!)
It was a very busy night for 15 members of Belle Fourche Lions last Thursday (May 28th) as attendees handled a number of topics, including the approval for the club to serve a 4th of July breakfast on State Street – most likely between 7:30 to 10:00 a.m.  
Michelle Evans
That decision came after guest Michelle Evans addressed the club and advised that the downtown merchants on State Street desire to work with the Lions Club.  The conversation was timely, since the Lions Club had previously had to postpone its annual Pancake Breakfast.  Downtown merchants proposed to close State Street from 5th to 7th Streets.  The exact menu to be served is yet to be determined, but the motion to proceed with the joint venture was approved.
After discussion about Lions ushering at the Fourth of July Rodeo this year, it was decided to advise the Rodeo Committee that Belle Fourche Lions will not usher at the rodeo this year.
The club then announced the names of the two seniors at Belle Fourche High who are the recipients of $500 scholarships:  Kelby Olson and Harley Fischer. The selection Committee consisted of Lions Beals, Gubbrud, D. Neumeister and Pummel.
