ANNUAL LIONS KIDS CAMP CLEANUP

On April 30 we took part in one of the three annual Kids Camp cleanup days at the camp in Kerrville. The Texas Lions established the camp in 1948 and after 5 years of fund-raising and construction, the camp finally opened in 1953. The camp serves children with special medical conditions and type I diabetic children. Our group's task this year was cleaning the mess hall windows (there are a lot of windows in this mess hall ya'll!). Shown above left to right are Dan Reudelhuber, Sherry Reudelhuber and Mary Moore from our club, and Milton Dare the Director of Development for the Texas Lions Camp. Milton was the fourth member of our cleaning team. Not shown but also a hardworking member of our team is Michael Moore, Mary's husband. Mary's dogs Bo and Duke kept us all company.



MARBLE FALLS SENIOR ACTIVITY CENTER DONATION


Our club made a $1,000 donation to the Marble Falls Senior Activity Center on Friday March 25th. We had been contacted by the center asking if we could make a donation to help them offset the cost of recent maintenance work done on the center (new roof, indoor painting and new flooring throughout). We were happy to be able to help the center pay for this work. Shown from left to right: Mary Moore/Secretary, Dan Reudelhuber/President, Sherry Reudelhuber/board member, Bob Quigley (President Emeritus for the center) and Carl DeLine/member at the center. Carl was the one who originally contacted us.

While we were at the center, we were shown all the improvements that had been made. The center worked with a local contractor to do the work. Everything looked really first class!



CHRISTMAS FOR KIDS

Every year we work with the Spicewood Helping Hands Ministry and the Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center to provide Christmas gifts to needy children in the Highland Lakes communities. In December 2021 we delivered gifts for 20 children through the above organizations.



WARM COATS FOR KIDS 2021 - DECEMBER 3 AND 4 - BLAZING STAR MASONIC LODGE MARBLE FALLS


We held our annual "Warm Coats for Kids" event again this year at the Masonic Lodge in Marble Falls. We collected over 100 coats throughout the community and were able to give away 45 or so to needy families. Some were also donated to the St. Fredrick Baptist Church in Marble Falls. Coats were donated at several collection boxes that were situated in Meadowlakes, Horseshoe Bay and Marble Falls. It's heartwarming to see the smiles on the kids when they get a warm coat! And we are very grateful to the Masons for letting us use their facility!



WALKWAY OF LIGHTS 2021 - NOVEMBER 27, 28 AND 29 - MARBLE FALLS


We manned the concession stand for 3 nights this year and served hundreds and hundreds of people. We had popcorn, hot chocolate, coffee and cookies. It was pretty successful as we raised over $2,000 for the club. And it was fun too!!!
