From San Jose Mercury News, Local, August 18, 2016:  See full clip here.

READY FOR SCHOOL: I’ve heard from a couple more community groups working to make sure South Bay kids are ready for school.

Fourteen members of the San Jose Host East Valley Lions Club, working with 20 helpers from James Lick High School and a Girl Scouts Brownie troop, loaded up 400 backpacks to be distributed to Alum Rock School District students. Organized by Gerry Stasko, Grace Mata, Carla Evans and Chris Long, the group got it done in less than three hours.

LPPCICongratulations to Lion Bob Skubis, Los Gatos Lions for his wonderful article to LPCCI and to his great fundraising efforts for last year’s Dogfest. His article below was published in the LPCCI Lion’s Share that just came out. (Summer 2016).  I am looking for each Lions club in our 4-C6 District to pick a member to be an LPCCI Chair for your club. Please contact Karen Fillmore if you or someone in your club is willing to be your club chair for this great District service project.

Also, note that DogFest for this year is Oct 8, 2016, Cupertino 10am to 1:30pm.

PDG Karen Fillmore, LPCCI Trustee

SUCCESS FOR DOGFEST

The chore of fundraising for any event or cause never seems to get people clamoring for the job.  Most people aren’t comfortable asking for money or merchandise, feeling they’re putting people in a corner if they can’t or won’t. 
My name is Bob Skubis, a member of the Los Gatos Lions Club and the chair for our LPCCI (Lion’s Project for Canine Companions).

All District 4-C6 Lions,

Soberanes-Fire-230-am-August-2-2016We need your immediate help!  Please consider writing a check for $100 or more to Lions District 4-C6, and mark it in the comments portion of the check asdesignated for the Soberanes Fire.  Please mail the check to the following address:  
Jeff Bosshard
District 4-C6 Cabinet Treasurer
P.O. Box 606
Freedom, CA 95019
As you know, the Soberanes Fire has been raging for the past two weeks in our own Monterey County.  Local Lions have been supporting agency efforts to provide aid to those who have been vacated from their homes.  Marina Lions Club, under the direction of President Mark Arellano, specifically has taken a lead in delivering needed goods to those in need.  
District 4-C6 applied to LCIF this week for an $10,000 emergency grant, and the grant was immediately approved.  The grant is specific and covers a narrow set of uses including food, clothing, and medical supplies.  There are serious needs outside the scope of the LCIF grant,where financial support from each of our Lions Clubs and individual membership is requested.  Your monies will be put to good use to directly serve those in our community who are in need, and where other agencies are unable to fulfill the need. 
 
We Serve!

WEDNESDAY 8/17/16 10 AM – 1 PM

YMCA CAMP CAMPBELL

16275 HWY 9, BOULDER CREEK, CA 95006

Lions: Thanks to all of you who supported the Diabetes Camp Fundraiser for kids with Type 1 Diabetes on June 5, 2016.  The event was very successful with over $20,000 raised for this year’s scholarships for kids in need to attend camp.  Many thanks to all of the clubs who donated outstanding raffle baskets and to all of you who participated in the basket raffle and bid on the silent auction items.   Without all of your support for coming and for those who helped either before or at the event, the event would not have been nearly as successful.

DYF is again hosting us at the Lions Day at Camp de los Ninos so you can see for yourself the camp in action and how our donations are being used. It is a day that you will always remember of how “We Serve” to help kids with Type 1 Diabetes learn how to successfully manage their lives.

We will be able to see Lions John Kelly and Jim Thrall, who have volunteered as camp staff.  We will also see the fabulous swimming pool that Los Gatos Lions donates the funds to hire the lifeguards to enable the pool to be open. Plus those who want to can have lunch with the campers, an experience you do not want to miss!

DYF needs to know how many are coming by 8/12/16 and how many are staying for lunch.  Please  copy and paste this link:

https://goo.gl/JVdN8K  to sign up.  Let me know if you want to car-pool from Denny’s on Hillsdale leaving at 8:30 am on Wednesday 8/17/16.

Lion Val Isaacson, Lions Diabetes Awareness Chairperson.
