The 2015-16 district 29 Lions officer training will be held at WVNCC in New Martinsville on May 26. All Club Secretaries, treasurers, presidents and membership chairs have been encouraged to attend.
The need for a flag pole was also discussed. They had found a previously used flag pole, but due to weathering and age, they are unable to use it. Alex King had mentioned the possibility of a donation from the Sistersville Park since the park has two flag poles. However, it was discovered they needed to investigate the possibility of the flag pole being donated. If the flag pole had been donated to the Sistersville Park, it is required that the pole stay in the park.
A blood drive, hosted by the Lions Club, will be held at the Middlebourne Fire Hall on Aug. 25.
