The first project for the New Year is getting ready for the Kid’s Fishing Derby at Case’s Pond. Each year the trail around the pond has to be checked for any dangerous spots and the fish have to be ordered for the big day on Saturday, April 26th.
Then two major fund raising projects get started. Willapa Harbor Lions will be contacting businesses to be sponsors for the 2014 Rain Derby. We are always looking for new sponsors.
The other major fund raising project is the Community Birthday Calendar. Last year was the start of a new era in Willapa Harbor Lions. We did not have the many years chairman in Keith McDonald to carry the calendar project. We think we may have not contacted all previous calendar buyers and may have missed some birthdays. We not only lost Keith McDonald, but also lost Conrad Strozyk and Chuck Werley; two of our Lions who had many calendar customers. What we did manage to do was go through every name on the calendar to make any known corrections.
If you were not contacted last year and have not been contacted by the first of June, please call any Lion or mail your check to Willapa Harbor Lions, P O Box 333, Raymond, 98577.
