Area Lions gather in Winthrop
by Ruth Klossner
The Zone 3 Lions Spring Meeting was held Wednesday, March 22 at Hahn’s in Winthrop. A total of 51 Lions from the eight clubs in the zone—Winthrop, Gibbon, Lafayette, Courtland, Nicollet, Henderson, Green Isle, and Arlington—attended.
The entire 5M2 District officer team—District Governor Kathleen Bleckeberg of Alden, DG Elect Christy Trutnau of the Jordaness Lions, 1st VDG Elect Lisa Kaufmann of Chanhassen Lions, and 2nd VDG Elect Shermayne Cross of Faribault Lions—also attended and took part in the program. Zone chair Rose Thies of Green Isle led the meeting.
With a theme of “Let’s spring into action,” participants and their clubs brought and donated cleaning supplies for the Sibley and Nicollet County Food Shelves. While the total of the items collected hasn’t been tallied, they more than filled a table, as pictured.
