The Celebration Continues!

Lions Stephanie Coleman and Benjamin Swiggett (Co-chairman Morris Lions Club Centennial Committee) Diane Mangan (Morris Hospital Diabetes Educator) and George McComb (President of the Morris Hospital Foundation)

On Thursday, March 30, we presented a second check to the Morris Hospital Diabetes Program, in the lobby of the Morris library. The donation is part of the Centennial Legacy Project, celebrating the one-hundred year anniversary of the founding of the first Lions Club, in Chicago.

This donation followed an initial donation of $5,000 in January, of this year. The donations are used to provide A1C tests, and to provide Diabetes testing supplies for those who need them.

Along with the two donations, a display rack has been setup in the the lobby of the Morris library. The rack contains information on the Morris Hospital Diabetes Program, as well as general information on Diabetes. We would like to send our thanks to the library for the use of one of there rotating display stands. We would also like to send a heart-felt thanks to the community of Morris for supporting us over the years.

As always, check out our Facebook Page for more photos and updates on events.

Monthly Update 1: February 2017

Welcome to the first monthly update post for the Morris Lions Club. These posts are here to keep our community informed on what we have been doing for each month.

Updates for February

On February 2, district 1-BK Governor, Pat Gaffny, came to update us on the happenings around our district. She also, updated us on the 1-BK convention, being held on March 11, in Bowling brook. We were encouraged to attend and volunteer at the Centennial convention, held at the end of June, in Chicago. She emphasized that this is the closest international convention Morris Lions will ever see. We finished our meeting with the usual round of updates and committee reports.

On February 16Th, we started our meeting a little earlier than usual, we met at 6:00 for dinner, and we followed dinner with a short meeting. At 7:00 we headed over to The Morris Theatre Guild To see a production of “Harvey”. It was a fun, silly play, that involved a family, a sanitarium, and a rabbit. Also, said rabbit was six foot tall and invisible. Everyone had a wonderful time, and a thank you goes out to our very own Lion Judy Miller, director of the wonderful play, for putting on a great performance.

On February 20Th, Lions Benjamin Swiggett and Stephanie Coleman finished setting up the kiosk inside the Morris Library for the Centennial Legacy Project.
