Mingo Lions Club officers installed during ceremony

The May dinner meeting of the Mingo Lions Club was held at the new Indian Creek Middle School Building with President Jim Freiling presiding.

Bill Snyder gave the opening prayer.

Thank-you notes were received for donations to the Parade of Checks.

Freiling expressed appreciation to members who went to the district convention in New Philadelphia and communicated information on the Lions World Diabetes Day Webinar.

Freiling updated members on Mingo Community Days set for Aug. 9-10. Jeff Schuetz gave a tentative menu which will include “the famous Lions lemon shakes.” Freiling and Schuetz will meet in July to finalize plans.

Members will donate sugar for the lemon shakes and can drop it off at Dr. William Johns’ office, it was announced.

Zone 5 Chair Jim Everson installed the club’s new officers. They are: president, Freiling; first vice president, Snyder; second vice president, Schuetz; third vice president, Jo Ann Johns; secretary, Clara Sue Milewsky; treasurer, Christine Barrett; tail twister, John Fabian; lion tamer, Leroy Milewsky; one-year director and sight chairman, Dr. William Johns; and youth chairman, Karen Edwards.

Terry Snyder is a one-year director; Bob Smith is a two-year director; and Michele Fabbro is in charge of membership.

Freiling gave a report on the work that the Mingo Revitalization Committee is doing in the community.

The club will not meet during June, July, and August.

Birthdays were acknowledged.

Edwards was the drawing winner and gave the closing prayer.

Kathy Freiling was a guest.

The club’s next meeting will be held Sept. 16 at the Mingo Medical Group Office Building. Schuetz will provide the menu and be the caller. Tentatively scheduled guests will bring video of the five boroughs of New York City.

The video was taken by cameras in their bicycle helmets while they rode through the city.
