OFFICERS & DIRECTORS
Vol. 94, No. 11, July 20, 2018
Appleton Noon Lions on Road Trips! What a fun time for summer events and the Lions know how to do it . We toured Sheriff Brad Gehring's newly remodeled facility in the Appleton Industrial Park which allows his patrol officers closer proximity to the areas they patrol. The facility offered the Sheriff's Department a large bay for cars and emergency vehicles and office space that needed little renovation including a training room. It is a good fit and a tax money saver. Thanks to Brad Gehring for his years of service as he looks to retire in December. He is a member of the Greenville Lions Club and will have more time to assist them in their projects.
The following week, we met at Linwood Place, a non-profit apartment complex for seniors and a vendor at our Senior Expo. Becky Luett, Executive Director of Linwood Place welcomed us and offered a lunch and tour of the facility. The facility is ecumenical but attached to the Fox Valley Lutheran Homes organization. It offers 41 unfurnished apartments in different configurations for seniors in our community at extremely reasonable rates. Every apartment has a balcony and a good view of either Linwood Park or a wooded area and offers nder ground parking. Other services include a community room, one lunch a week for the residents, a nurse referral service, exercise classes, religious services and laundry facility. Linwood Place is a 502(c)3 organization with a board of directors with the donations used to maintain the facility common areas and renovation of apartments as they are vacated. A Lovely Place is Linwood Place.
A little club news- we are in the process of looking at a web redesign. Joe Ferris has asked to retire from the duties and we must thank him for all the work he put into the robust web we have! But the new page has hit some snags and we will need the help of our membership to find out what is needed and what we can do. Joe wrote the page himself and it will be difficult for someone to "take it over". So, we will be looking at a new design or a canned product that will be easier to maintain. So get your thinking caps on and help the steering committee working on this. Also Jerry Breen finds that he cannot continue as second Vice Chair so the nominating committee will meet to review candidates for the position. Sue Lee has offered to move up to 2nd Vice and Ann Karr has offered to be 3rd Vice.
Next week will be swearing in of officers and the speaker will be Beth Servais from Homeless Connections. July 30, 2018, we will have a Senior Expo meeting at 11:00 am followed by our regular meeting with Isabel Mendoza from ReStore/Habitat for Humanity bringing us up to date on that organization.
Enjoy Wisconsin weather and activities!!
