Things To Know

For those of you who notice these things, we swapped meals between the two February meetings to accommodate the “younger” taste of the Boy Scouts at the first February meeting.

The Annual 16D Charity Ball will be held at McAteer’s Restaurant, on Saturday, March 17, 2001. Tickets are $35 per person; black tie, optional. Please contact President Tom Reilly ASAP for availability.

District 16D is holding a “Public Relations and Membership Seminar” at the Monmouth Junction Mobile Park, from 10AM to Noon on February 17,2001. This event is open to all Lions. If you would like to attend, please contact President Tom Reilly before the registration deadline of February 14.

The 8th Annual New Jersey Lions State Convention is being held this year May17-19, at the Sheraton Atlantic City West Hotel.  The event is open to all members. A day badge (for exhibits) is $6. Per person costs range from $18 for an individual event, to $95 for the 3-day package. Hotel costs are separate ($90 per night). For more information, contact President Tom Reilly.

The Cranbury Lions have been chosen to sponsor a Super 50-50 at Waterfront Stadium on Saturday June 16, 2001. Last year’s 50-50 was one of our biggest fundraisers. We need as many volunteers as we can get to sell tickets at the game. Admission is free and the club will pick up the cost of a hot dog and a beer (or soda). A sign-up sheet will be passed at the May meetings.

The Second Annual Trenton Thunder Baseball Picnic will be on Sunday, August 12, 2001 (1:05PM). The Thunder, (the Boston Red Sox affiliate) will be playing the Binghamton Mets. This Lions Activity is open to all. Tickets are $27 per adult/$22 per child and includes admission to the Park, seating in the Picnic Area (3rd Base Side), and a 90-minute all-you-can-eat buffet starting 30 minutes before game time. The buffet includes soda, BBQ ribs, hamburgers, hotdogs, tossed salad, pasta salad, baked beans, pretzels, potato chips, cookies and assorted melons. Beer can be purchased at the reduced rate of $2.75, per. The picnic area holds 150 people, so put your group together and reserve your seats early. For ticket information call Bob Virgadamo.

 Reminders

If you have e-mail capability, but are receiving The Jargon via regular mail, please notify the Editor. If we can send The Jargon out via e-mail, the reduction in postage can save over $300 in our annual operating expenses. Your e-mail address will not be distributed outside of the Club, and will only be used for The Jargon and other necessary Club business. Your participation in this program benefits all of us.

The Third Annual Cranbury Lions Golf Classic will be held on Monday, June 4, 2001, at the Cranbury Golf Club. Walt Caldwell will be contacting the Golf Committee to provide assignments, but he may need additional help in obtaining Corporate and Hole Sponsors. If you can volunteer to help, please contact Walt.

The First Annual Lions Family Picnic will be held in Village Park on Sunday, June 10, 2001. Members are encouraged to invite prospective members and their families. More details will follow, shortly.
