Barker Lions hold opening meeting

STAFF REPORTS

BARKER, N.Y. -- Barker Lions held their opening meeting on Wednesday, Sept 5. President Kent Wakefield ran the program. In addition to outlining what he'd like to see at the monthly meetings, committee chairs had the opportunity to present updates.

Lion Past President Mike Feltz talked about the three upcoming chicken barbecues. In addition to the Somerset Historical Society's upcoming event on Sept 15, we have two more this fall. We do need volunteers to help serve at the Babcock house on Sept. 15. Lion Tom Mallon has reached out to students at Barker Central School who need volunteer credit.

Given that our chicken barbecues have received rave reviews from the organizations that use them as fundraisers, it was suggested we promote them more widely.

Lion Past President Kevin Bittner updated the group on the fall Cheese sale. We are working the Kutters Cheese. Order forms are due by Oct 17 so that the cheese can be delivered by November 14 in time for Thanksgiving family gatherings.

Upcoming programs at our meetings include presentations for Lions District Governor Jeff Jarvis, new School Superintendent Jacob Reimer, the Dale Association and the Palace Theater. During the year, Barker will visit Newfane and Wilson Lions Clubs. Meeting on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 PM, each meeting includes dinner and speaker.
