Mountain Roar - Lion, Milt Fox posted on 07/27/2023
By Lion, Milt Fox
For The Mountain Times
This year’s Swimming Lessons program was a great success. We had 79 students registered and all made great gains in their swimming and water safety abilities, many swimming the length of the pool. All were presented with a special Gold Medal in recognition of their achievements. We thank Lion Aubrey Hatzi who was our Lead Instructor and a great crew of instructors and lifeguards, Lion Erin Midgett, Lion Katie Wirth, and Lion Ray Eagley and also Roni Meachum and Ashley Dawson. Well, we can’t forget the help of Lion Patti Buoy for her working with parents to get the registration and schedules coordinated., and to Lion Marlyne Casley and Lion Sue Allen for the daily registration, and to Lion David Buoy, our very cheerful and capable chairman. We owe a very special thank you to the dedicated staff members of Camp Arrah Wanna for their hospitality and the very generous discounted rate for the use of their fine swimming pool and locker room facilities. We certainly would not have been able to have completed this wonderful program without their generous help. We also appreciate the great community support of the fund raising efforts needed for this project. Really our only disappointment was that we had more applicants than we could instruct, something that we must work out for next year. We’ve gotta go to work now!
Chuckwagon Breakfast
Thank you for attending our Chuckwagon Breakfast ! We had a pretty good turnout, serving about 450 over the two days. We had great food and many nice comments from our guests. Our Turkey Shoot, which is always a lot of fun, was very successful. Lion Erin Midgett was our Breakfast Chairwoman and as always, she was helped by a great crew of Lions.  Thanks go to Welches Mountain Building Supply, Welches Clackamas County Bank, The Whistle Stop Tavern, and Coffee House 26, for the sale of our tickets.  Special thanks go to Rob, John, and Calvin at Hoodland Thriftway for their generous discounts and donations.

Something Special
We celebrated the Chartering of our club with a great steak dinner on July 26th. We learned a little about the early history and projects of our club. We also celebrated Lion Dan Wolf’s 80th Birthday with a wonderful slice of cake. Lion Dan is one of just a handful of Lions older than the club.
Our club’s first “Charter Night” was held on July 28th, 1951, at the Zig Zag Inn some 72 years ago, with over 200 people present. It’s great to be a Lion!
