NEW CUMBERLAND — First Vice President Joyce Young presided at a recent meeting of the New Cumberland Lions Club, introducing guest District Gov. Gary Pitcock.

Don Greathouse offered the prayer, and Russ Flanigan led in the pledge.

Pitcock inducted new members Derrick Stickles and Tonya Stickles. They were presented with centennial member pins, and their sponsors, Jeff Fawcett and Ellen Musgrave, also received centennial sponsor pins.

Pitcock drew the name of the winner of the Lions Scholarship provided by the New Cumberland, Chester and Newell Lions clubs to an Oak Glen High School senior. Young and Betsy Wells attended the vocational awards banquet to present it.

Bob Manypenny said the pulled pork fundraiser sale will be held from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of the Swaney Memorial Library. The pork sandwich is $5.50 with coleslaw topping available for an additional 25 cents. Smoked chicken halves will cost $6. Both are available as dinners with two side dishes — baked beans and potato salad or coleslaw — for an additional $1.50. Whole smoked pork butts will be available for $26 by advanced order only. To ensure receiving the half chicken or to order a whole pork butt, call Manypenny at (304) 564-5055 by 6 p.m. on Thursday.

Pam Stiles reported that nine members participated in the road cleanup, gathering 16 bags of trash.

Young reported on the recent zone meeting. There will be no more car shows or beef drawings. The money from these fundraisers went to the W.Va. Sight Conservation Foundation.

Summer meeting dates include June 11 for the installation of officers; July 23, the picnic with a likely change of location; and Aug. 27, the steak fry.

The Weirton Lions Club will be having a quarter auction on Sept. 14.

The club’s next meeting will be May 28 at the city building.
