We are happy to be joined by two new members, Deborah Kilcollin and Jeanette Roberts. Deborah is new to Lionism but wanted to join after visiting Camp Dogwood for the first time. Jeannette is newly moved to our area but was previously with the Davidson Lions Club. We look forward to big things from both!
With the new school year beginning we're finally writing about the charter of the new LEO club at Southern Middle School. The Aberdeen Lions were happy to sponsor the new LEO club at their charter ceremony on May 17, 2017. The event was held at Southern Middle in the library. Attending the event were most of the 25 charter members of the LEO club, their advisor Suzane Badgett, principal Marcy Cooper, Lions DG Laraine Dupree and her husband PDG Dale as well as many Aberdeen Lions. The Aberdeen Lions would like to specifically thank one of its own members, Gary Greene, for initiating and organizing the new LEOs.
The Aberdeen Lions look forward to this 2017-2018 school year with the LEOs. The club already has several service project ideas and fundraising plans and we can't wait to share what they're up to!
The Aberdeen Lions, assisted by a visit from District Governor Laraine Dupree, inducted their newest member Mitch Coleman. Mitch is soon to be retired. He was a founding member of the Sandhills Optimist Club and has a long history of serving the community already. The Lions are happy to have him in their ranks!
