Lee Rushmore, Secretary Ken McLoon and missing from photo Treasurer Paul Anderson and Past President and Director Richard Parent.

The Bristol Area Lions had their annual spouse’s night and election of officers and directors June 21.

David Atwater of ‘Just Atwater & Stir’ catered a delicious meal of seafood medley or steak followed by strawberry shortcake.

The business meeting opened with a silent prayer for those Lions who left us during the year: Tony Townsend, Robert Hanley and Charlie Ludlow.

Bristol Lion Parliamentarian Al Sears charged each of the officers and directors with their duties and responsibilities for the coming year.

The King Lion’s first official act was to appoint Michael Hope as co-chairman of the Bristol Area Lions Foundation, to serve with Pat Harrison. As scholarship chairman last year, Hope sent out over 50 letters to parents in South Bristol and Bristol of graduating Lincoln Academy students.

Of the 11 who applied for scholarships, five students each received an award of $1,500. Hope also designed and built most of the shed for this year’s raffle, which will help fund the Food Pantry, CHIP, annual Christmas Baskets and other local charities.

Walt Johansson reported on the progress of receiving Treasures for the Treasures and Treats Sale coming up July 29, in conjunction with the Willing Workers. Those members who have not brought in a Treasure yet worth $10 or more should do so on Wed., June 30 between 7 and 8 p.m. or call Walt at 677-2584.

Lee Rushmore reported on the progress of filling the schedule for raffle ticket sales at Reilly’s on Fridays and Saturdays in July and August.

Sy Kagan reported on the progress of this year’s Aug. 14 golf tournament at Wawenock Country Club. Last year’s tournament funded two of the $1,500 scholarships awarded this year by the Bristol Area Lions Foundation.
