    Thanks everyone for such a great time last Sunday. Special recognition should go to, of course Ron and Linda Smested for their entire efforts, and there were many I saw. I also want to thank Roland who showed up within 1 minute of me Sunday morning at 4 minutes to 5 a.m. on Lincoln Avenue at the La Villa Deli. Amazing to see someone who is not even an official member yet, show such enthusiasm.

      Everyone worked very hard, but it is truly heartening to see volunteers stepping in to help. Three cheers for Ron and Linda Smested for their huge effort of organization and energy. Cheers!

      A big “Thank You” to all attendees who purchased our breakfast burritos and to all volunteers who helped at our booth at LaVilla Deli Sunday September 9th on Lincoln Ave in Willow Glen. Our efforts will help local community charities in great time of need!

    Lions at “Walk to School” Friday October 13, 2012

    The mass of students and parents filled the Willow Glen Bank of America parking lot. All the students had bright yellow balloons. Four Mascots, each with a local dignitary, led groups of students and parents walking to four local schools. It was definitely a successful event.

    Eight Willow Glen Lions (by my count; we will list names and get the correct count) came to help. We lent hands in setting up, giving out balloons, and distributing the morning snacks. Mostly we were part of the crowd enjoying the morning, seeing the enthusiasm for walking to school. Just think of all those parents mustering their kids for a special, early morning. We were there around 7 AM and finished by 8:30. Lions helped Zanottos distribute apples, pears and granola bars and made good acquaintance with Troy from Zanottos. We will have him attend a meeting, establish Zanottos as a supporter of Willow Glen Lions and hopefully gain a member.

    Could you post the order form or put an ecommerce link on your site for the Charlie Brown Christmas tree project. Thanks

    • WillowGlenLionsClub

      This is a great idea. We’re just learning how to put up e-commerce sites for our projects. It wouldn’t be found on this site, since this is a WordPress site, but we can try to build another site for this use. To order your Charley Brown Christmas Trees, email Dave at tdadave (at) comcast.net or stop by one of our Willow Glen Lions meetings! Our meetings are FREE and they take place on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month, at Denny’s on Hillsdale, just west of Almaden Expressway. If you stop by, be sure to ask for Dave or Steve regarding the Christmas Tree program. PS We also have wreaths!
