Scales of Justice Lions will be meeting at a different location and time for the meeting of July 23, 2014. We will be meeting at 6:30 p.m. at Sonoma Chicken Coop in Campbell instead of our usual 12 noon at Denny’s on Bascom. Our guest speaker is from Honor Flight Bay Area to speak to us about this nonprofit nationwide organization whose mission is to help every single veteran in America, willing and capable of getting on a plane or a bus, visit THEIR memorial, especially World War II veterans. Please RSVP Lion President Linda Pugliese if you’d like to attend.
San Jose Almaden Lions Club is hosting a family night with a Miniature Golf Chip-In for Sight Tournament on August 21 at 5:30 pm.
100% of the proceeds go to Lions Club sight projects to help both children and adults who cannot afford glasses. For some this means the difference in succeeding at school or finding a job. Your support of this event enables Lions to support needed projects in our community.
Tickets are $45 each, which includes golf, all-you-can-eat pizza, soda, raffle, and live and silent auctions, or $15 without golf.
Tee Sponsorships are also available for individual donors and businesses for $200.
Come join us for a fun night at Emerald Hills Golfland, 976 Blossom Hill Rd San Jose, at Winfield Blvd. For more information e-mail email@example.com or call Lion Jeff Spedding @ 408-221-1106.
Spend Sunday, August 3rd in the redwoods at a special Fundraiser to purchase a Desktop Video magnifier for West Valley Community College Library.

Please call Marlene Duffin for reservations: firstname.lastname@example.org
The LCIF Board met in June and approved our grant request for matching funds for the Pediavision screening devices. We will soon have enough funds to purchase four devices. With the four devices we should be able to quickly and efficiently screen more people in less time with better results.
Let us give a big Thank You to PDG Bob Ferber who worked tirelessly to convince the LCIF Board that our need was significant to provide service to our communities.
Another great thank you goes to the Lions of District C6 for their generosity in collecting our portion of the matching funds.
Thank you to all in the spirit of Lionism.

I am personally inviting you to a very special celebration of the merger of the San Jose Host and San Jose East Valley Lions Clubs. we are now one and we are looking forward to a new and exciting future. With both clubs having long histories I know we will learn from our pasts and we look forward to the future with new projects, fundraisers and social events, however we want to keep many of the traditions both clubs have had. With change comes growth and we cannot grow without you.
We are looking forward to seeing old friends and for those of us who have not been in the Lions club for a long time, making new friends. I am looking forward to seeing you on August 1st at our celebration.

CHANGE TO BACKPACK ASSEMBLY DATE/TIME
The backpack assembly has been changed to Saturday, July 26 at 11am. The reason for the change is that the original date conflicted with the District Installation.
The venue is the same: San Martin Lions Hall, 12415 Murphy Ave, San Martin
Remember: If your Club has ordered backpacks, at least ONE member of your club MUST help with the assembly and pick-up of the backpacks you ordered!
