Things To Know

 

The Summer Schedule is over, please resume wearing normal business attire to regular meetings.

 

Although the turn-out for the Second Annual Trenton Thunder Baseball Picnic on Sunday, August 12, 2001 was not as big as anticipated, there was still a fair amount of folks who came out and enjoyed watching the “boys of summer”, in spite of the rainy weather. Hopefully, next years game will be better attended. Oh, and by the way, the Thunder won.

 

At this time, we’d like to remind all members that your help is needed for our Cranbury Day Stands, on Saturday, September 8, 2001. That’s right, ‘stands’, plural. This year, in addition to our regular food stand, we will also have a table on the street where we will be selling 50/50 tickets, and, if we can work out the numbers, we will sell ice cream from our new Ice Cream Cart (donated by a Cranbury resident). Our annual Cranbury Day fundraiser is a manpower intensive activity – we need all the volunteers we can get! Please sign up at the meeting or call Don Herr or Roy Reinhardt to volunteer (go ahead, do it now, before you forget).

 

 


~ IN MEMORIAM ~

 

Stan Thomas passed away on Sunday, September 2, 2001. Stan was one of this Club’s greatest assets. He had been Lion of the Year, a past Club President, Zone Chairman (87-91), and Deputy District Governor (91-92). He was a member of our current Board of Directors, and has been on the Board, on and off – mostly on – since becoming a Lion in 1980. Stan was the current Chairperson for the Member Directory & Printing Services, Co-Chair for the White Cane (Lead) and Cranbury Day, and the Liaison between the Cranbury Lions and the town’s Scouting organizations (Boy, Cub and Girl). He was always available when help was needed and volunteered for virtually every fundraiser and community service, never losing sight of the fact that as Lions. “We Serve”. Stan was a great Lion and a better human being. He will be missed.
