District M6 fun “Hobo Day” event will be Saturday, January 25, 2020
starting at 4:30 pm at the Ernte Fest Building
(North Main, Freistatt, MO).

Silent & live auction, 50/50 drawing, cake walks & best of all the best dressed HOBO competition!!!  PDG Lion Kevin Cantrell & his brother, Eugene, preparing the meal.

This is a district fundraiser designed to provide funds that will help keep our district dues to a minimum, plus we get to enjoy fellowship with other Lions.  In order for this to be successful, we need our Lions to attend and for each club to donate an item of $25.00 or more in value or make a monetary donation.  You can take your item(s) or donation to your Zone Chair, DG Walter Hamer, 1st DG Toni Morris or Hobo Chair Lion Darci Klick. 

You can also help by bringing new items for the Silent Auction, bringing a cake for the Cake Walk OR bring a dessert for the meal.  It all helps! 

Central Collection Point in District 26-M6
For Your Used Eyeglasses

As you may recall several months ago the district lost its central location in Springfield for clubs to bring their eyeglasses they had collected.  We now have a place to receive the glasses for the time being.

  • You may bring them to Holman Howe Funeral Home in Seymour
  • The glasses must be in boxes where they can be stacked. 
  • You may bring them during regular hours of 8:30 to 4:30 Monday thru Friday.  It would be also helpful if you would call ahead to make sure no services were being held at that time.  The office number is 417-935-2244.
  • If you need to come after hours or during the weekend contact PDG Bob Crump at 417-464-4040. 

Remember this collection site is only at the Seymour funeral home and
not at any of the other Holman Howe locations.
T hank you, Holman Howe Funeral Homes for making the
Seymour location available to the Lions.
