Things To Know

Directions to The Sarnoff Research Center – [Sarnoff is on Route 1, Northbound, between Washington Rd. and Harrison St. This is NOT the Space Center in East Windsor.  It is the former RCA Laboratories in Princeton.] From Cranbury, take Cranbury Neck Road about 5 miles to the traffic light at Rte. 571.Turn right on Rte.571. Go about a mile to the Sarnoff sign on the right side of Rte. 571. [If you get to Route 1 you went too far.] Turn right at the Sarnoff sign and drive straight ahead about 200 yards into the Sarnoff Research Center. At the flagpole turn left (a sign will say Lions and point to the left), drive the length of the building and park near the door. If a problem arises call Sarnoff (609)734-2000.

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 annual Drug Free Fair will be held on Saturday, May 19, 2001. As in years past, the Cranbury Lions will have a booth. As the date approaches, a sign-up sheet will be passed around at meetings for volunteers to man the booth during the day; anyone who is unable to make a meeting can volunteer by contacting Committee Chairperson Richard Stannard.

The First Annual Lions Family Picnic will be held in Village Park from 1PM –6PM on Sunday, June 10, 2001. Members are encouraged to invite prospective members and their families. Hamburgers, hot dogs, potato & macaroni salads, watermelon and beverages will be provided. There will be games and activities. The cost is anticipated to be approximately $15 per adult and $5 per child. It would be helpful, in the planning process, if everyone could contact Paul Mucciarone, to advise him approximately how many adults and children you expect to bring along.

The Second Annual Trenton Thunder Baseball Picnic will be on Sunday, August 12, 2001. 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.

 

Do you know a young adult (18-21) in or around Cranbury, who speaks French? Our Club will pay the airfare for one young adult to visit France this summer. Contact Greg or Renate Overstreet for complete details.

 

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) for each ticket seller. Members may bring someone along, just so long as they are willing to sell tickets and are at least 18-years old. A sign-up sheet will be passed at the May meetings.

 

The Third Annual Cranbury Lions Golf Classic will be held on Monday, June 4, 2001, at the Cranbury Golf Club. Walton 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.

 

It is time to start thinking about the 2001-2002 selection of Officers. Available slots may include President, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, and two-year Directors. Lion Tamer and Tail Twister may also be available. The Search Committee will consider all volunteers and nominations. A sign-up sheet will be distributed at meetings shortly.
