District has own web site

At last Thursday’s Brady Lions Club meeting, our own Lion Zac Gray, who is also our Zone Chairman, told me that our Lions district has its own web site. Well, I just now looked it over, and I have some comments about it. The website www.txlionsdistrict2a1.com is one of the most eye appealing, easy to navigate and informative sites I have visited. Whatever your curiosity about Lions Clubs in our area, our projects, our members or our goals, you can find the answers there and on the links provided with that site. (It covers a lot of things that I haven’t covered in this column.) My hat is off to Lion Ron Downie of San Angelo, who is the webmaster. He’s done an excellent job. The Brady Lions club grew a little larger last week, as we inducted three new members and one returning member. Lion Randall Larr left us when he moved away from Brady, and now that he’s back he’s returned to the ‘pride.’ The newly installed Lions are DeLaine Poe, Steve McCarn and Rob Glover. Welcome aboard! We also had three guests at last Thursday’s meeting. Lion Jerry Sams of San Angelo’s Sundown Lions Club joined us. We also shared lunch with Tim Conrad, a Brady student who attended Texas Lions Camp last summer and Jackie Norton, wife of Lion Erich Norton. There was no program scheduled last Thursday, as it was our monthly business meeting. Among the items covered, the membership authorized a donation to help defray the extra expenses of Cody Morgan’s family. You may remember that Mr. Morgan is the young man who was seriously injured in a traffic accident a few weeks ago. The City of Brady sanitation truck on which he was working was struck from behind by another vehicle, and Cody was pinned between the two trucks. We wish him a speedy recovery. It was also decided that for next summer’s club outing to serve dinner at the Texas Lions Camp in Kerrville, we’re going to try to schedule a week devoted to youngsters with physical disabilities. For the last three years, we’ve been there during the week set aside for kids with diabetes. We’d like to afford another Lions Club the opportunity to work with that special group of campers. Unfortunately, the Brady Lions Club’s dinner theater that is usually presented in October, in conjunction with the Children’s Community Drama Group, won’t be happening this year. Mrs. Jan Gardner, who has produced and directed the plays in the past has been medically sidelined. We’ll just have to wait until she’s well and can pick up where she left off. Get well, soon, Jan. Our meeting last Thursday ended, as usual with the drawing for a free lunch. The winner for this week is Lion Louise Long. The Mane Lion will be back again next week. Same newspaper – same day – maybe or maybe not the same page.
