Magrath Campground - Day of Service .. OK .. so we have a little conflict here. So, we plan to combine the events and work the rest out online. Dear Club members: If you are not otherwise booked for a service project, Lion Shauna and I will be helping out at the Magrath Stake Campground - they have painting and cleanup needed there. I will have my phone with me if you call us you should be able to track us down. I will also post updates by email for current assignments. Thanks See you there!
The annual (2013) No Cost Clothing event, sponsored by the Magrath Lions and headed by Lion Elizabeth and Lion Tracie, was held Fri 14 Sep (for collection and sorting at Magrath Ice Arena) and Sat 15 Sep 9-1pm open to public (for free distribution). Many thanks to all the volunteer helpers (over 60 helpers) and for all the clothing donations. The arena was a nice location for this event. The tables had lots of space between them and it was easy for everyone to browse the selections. Clothing was on display on 2 dozen tables and bigger items were on hangers around the arena glass. After all the shoppers were done, we bagged up the remainder, some 40+ bags of clothes, for donation to Diabetes Society (for pickup on Mon). Thanks again to you all for clothing donations and all the help. Most came early for best selection, but still had new browsers up to 1pm. See you next time!
After a little work, we have assembled the accounting files for the Magrath Lions Club and have prepared the required AGLC report to Aug 2012 re our last Casino fundraiser, and the outstanding Society Annual Returns to Jun 2011 and Jun 2012 as required by the Alberta Government. Thanks to Lions Roger, Shauna, Tom, Alex and Devar for assembling the reports and providing the required reviews and signatures. Estimate 20 man hours work was required for this catch up, but now we should be in good standing with AGLC and Alberta Government and now ready to start on the Jun 2013 and Aug 2013 reports soon.
Financial reports are be available for review by Club Members on request. Please contact Club Treasurer 2013 Lion Shauna for access. Thanks! RDD
