As unusual, we have been holding our meetings online using Zoom. All members who have email addresses listed with the club have been sent these meeting notices. At this time, I know of only one member who chooses to not use email and, of course, who has not received these email notices.
Remember that we are only doing two meetings per month during the Covid-19 situation. We have our board meeting on the 3rd Monday Board Meeting and our regular 4th Monday meeting so that we can advise members who did not attend our board meeting what transpired during the board meeting. All members are welcome to our board meetings.
The December board meeting will be on the 14th and we will not have our regular dinner meeting.
I want to offer a special thanks to the members who assisted with our November Tri-Tip Dinner Drive-Thru. It was very successful. Thanks for working the event as well as buying a dinner for your family. Thanks to Lions Taka, Brad, Jack, Anthony, Bob S., Dan, Warren, Lynden, Jason, Bob B., Andy, Charlie, Don, Bill H., Stan, Dennis, John Jr., and Jey. Also a special thanks to Lorene, Dave King, Patty, Jonnie and Valerie.
Another special thank you to the members who assisted with the Elk Grove Food Bank Services annual Thanksgiving Dinner Box distribution. Our Lions managed the huge crowd of over 700 people who lined up to get their dinner box. Our traffic control managed to keep the traffic off of East Stockton Blvd and keep everything moving. Thanks to Lions Andy, taka, Bob H, Bob B, Brad, Marv, Anthony, Dan, John Jr., Jason and Jack.
I continue to be so very proud to be a part of such a great community minded organization, the Elk Grove Lions Club.

Lions are in 200 countries and geographic areas. We have 45,000 clubs with over 1.3 million members world wide. We have a dynamic history. We are best known for fighting blindness — it’s part of our history as well as our work today. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of projects including disaster relief — across many borders. We serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools with new programs and resources. Internationally, we offer many programs.
We hope you will consider joining our club.
To become a Lion, you must be of good moral character and good reputation in our community.
Membership is by invitation.
