Help needed

The Stockton Lions Club has taken on a new project. We will be offering our famous funnel cakes at the 2nd Annual Light the Lake event, a three-day Christian music concert event on July 12-13-14 in the Stockton City Park. The new funnel cake trailer has two cookers and two windows to make sure that "We Serve" some tasty treats to an estimated crowd of several thousand each day. Would you like to volunteer some time to this event and help the Club? Contact Lion Rob Haralson at or Lion Marvin Manring at for more information. Concert times run on Thursday from 2:30 to 10:30, on Friday from 2:30 to 10:30, and on Saturday from 11:30 am to 10:30, and are broken up into smaller shifts. Any assistance you can provide would be welcome!

Club Officer Orientation

Any Lions Club officers; rather staying in that office or a new Lion taking over an office for 2018-19 you will want to attend the Lions Club officer’s orientation to see what’s new for this coming year.  Make plans to attend on Saturday, July 14 at First Presbyterian Church in Neosho, Mo.

Has your club entered their 2018-2019 officers at LCI?

The current Club President or the Club Secretary should enter their newly-elected officers on MyLCI. To have current, updated information at LCI and in the District Directory, do you need help entering your officers on-line? Ask another Lion. Check with your Zone Chairman, fellow club officers, or District Leaders for help. Can we achieve 100% officer reporting this year in this year in the District? For more information CONTACT DGE Walt Hamar 417-235-8646 or 417-235-9147 OR Lion Marlene Payne, GLT 417-717-1188.
