Clay shoot raises money for projects, film crew arrives for documentary

Greetings from the Conroe Noon Lions Club, the “World’s Biggest Lions Club”. Another great lunch meeting took place last Wednesday with a large group of people. Our meeting began with our customary chants, promises, invocations, and guest introductions, all led by women from the club. The community partner for the week was Incredible Pizza from Conroe Texas. Thank you for your support of the Conroe Noon Lions Club.

Announcements followed with Lion Connie Engle informing us that the Vision Screening Committee completed 96 preschool vision screens and provided 14 referrals. CNLC will participate in the VFW “Trunk or Treat” on October 30 from noon to 3 pm and preschool eye tests will be performed there. Additional screenings are coming and volunteers are needed. Lion Rachel Kulhavy has announced that the next Saturday service will be held this Saturday at the Montgomery County Food Bank from 9 a.m. to noon. Volunteers will need to go to the food bank’s website to register and participate.

Lion Helen Thornton and Lion Ralph Perez added a little “cha-cha-cha” party to their announcement for the District 2-S-2 mid-winter conference to be held January 21-22, 2022, in our own backyard -court at Margaritaville Lake Resort on Lake Conroe. They urged the lions to register for the conference through the district website at www.lions2s2.org. Registration fees will include the conference, service opportunities, food, and tickets to the annual Bob Dowden dinner which benefits our beloved Texas Lions Camp. Hotel rooms should be booked directly with the resort. Conference room rates are available.

President Steve Williams has asked Lions to make it known that high school students attending Conroe High School or other Conroe schools should contact their high school counselors to apply for the Conroe Noon Lions competition scholarships, which will soon begin to be awarded. Senior Vice President Warner Phelps has informed the club that starting next week, a film crew will be attending the luncheons as the process of a documentary on the history of the Conroe Noon Lions Club begins. He also announced that 123 shooters participated in the Clay Shoot which was held last weekend and that the auction raised funds for the NPB’s various community service projects. Lion Mike Sproba reminded the group of the CHS Leo Club Aluminum Spinning Top Challenge and spreading the word to friends, family and the community.

You don’t have to be a Lion to participate in any of these events or projects! Please contact the club office for more information if you are interested in participating.

Our speaker today was Dr. Rebecca L. Riley, President of Lone Star College – Montgomery and she drew the attention of all the Lions in attendance to this “gem” in our own backyard.

Funding comes from local taxes, tuition fees, and reimbursement of contact hours. The system is governed by an elected board of nine members. The Montgomery campus has more than 15,000 students and more than 900 employees. Many study programs are available. These programs include transfer degrees such as Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and Associate of Arts in Teaching, which transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
