Eileen Nelson took third place. George Wind finished in fourth place. Don Trunks out the top five, and also had the most lone hands. Pat Allemang had the low score.

Did you see the Lions Clubs International float in the Rose Bowl Parade on New Year’s Day? Here’s the dialogue that was shared for viewers: “Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest humanitarian Association with 1.4 million members, in 46,000 clubs, in 210 countries, and geographic areas around the globe. The organization turned 100-years-old on June 17th, 2017. The Lions Clubs float theme “Preserving Our Environment” fits perfectly around two of Lions Clubs International Centennial Projects: Engaging Our Youth and Protecting Our Environment. Lions around the world plant trees, clean up beaches and community parks, and restore of historical sites on a daily basis.” Several of us have talked about going to Pasadena to work on the Lions float, but it hasn’t happened yet.
Our sympathies to the Lions Club of Bowmanville, on the passing of 102 year old Lion Bud Oke. His service will be held at Trinity United Church on Saturday, January 6th, 2018 at 11:00 a.m
