From the King lions Notebook – A great weekend in March!

Friday evening the Uniontown Lions got together and set up for the 26th Reverse Raffle fund raiser. Lots of logistics here but well thought out. It went smoothly.  Saturday Bob Jones, Mike Miller, with Dr Kail and me, did a presentation in one of the Break-Out rooms for the District Lions Convention in Canton. This is our opportunity to show to other clubs in our district what and how we do the eyeglass recycling.  Then more important Dr Kail shared his efforts in Third World countries dispensing our glasses that we have processed and others have collected.  This was our second convention that we have been ask to participate in.  We welcomed the opportunity.

Then on to Saturday evening and the Reverse Raffle.  What a night!  Over 170 prizes were awarded to ticket holders. The food was great.  And the beverages as well.  A lot of work by the committee but very rewarding when we see the results raising money for our community.  Special thanks to the co-chair Lions, Mindy and Ron for organizing a flawless event enjoyed by all.
