Tree-Planting Event at Lake Cunningham, San Jose

I Planted a Tree Button

When:  Sat, October 22, 8am – 12pm
Where:  S. White Road between Cunningham Ave and Tully Road, San Jose, CA (map)
Description:  Come join community members to plant 35 trees! Volunteer needs: 7-10 Tree Amigos and 60-75 general volunteers

Lunch provided

Lunch will be provided at the Our City Forest tree-planting event at Lake Cunningham on October 22 at 8:00 a.m. Consequently, they need a headcount of Lions who will be attending. They need an estimate as early as tomorow, September 28.  Therefore, I would ask that you respond if you plan to be at the event.

Present will be Mayor Chuck Reed, who will speak, as well as the media with TV and newspaper reporters. Governor Liz will also be there with shovel in hand. Again, let me say that the event will not only be fun, but an excellent opportunity to let people see who we Lions are all about. Please RSVP to PDG Joe Pugliese either today or tomorrow morning so I can pass the numbers along to the event planners.

Trees Planted Worldwide by Lions: 2,015,230

District 4-C6 Lions STEP OUT on October 9th

Sunday, October 9th is out day to STEP OUT to Stop Diabetes in partnership with the American Diabetes Association. The Lions District 4-C6 Team is led by Lion Verna Perales as Team Captain and Lion Verna is looking for Lions, friends and family to join our team!

This will be the only scheduled 4-C6 fundraiser for Diabetes this year since the local chapter of the Diabetes Association has closed their doors. If your club has a donation budgeted for a Diabetes cause, you can make the check out to the American Diabetes Association and mail it to our Cabinet Treasurer, Lion Esther Tuliao. Please do not send checks directly to the ADA as it will not count as a contribution from our District 4-C6 Team.

The American Diabetes Association is very excited about partnering with us in the future and plan to be at our November Cabinet meeting. They will be doing a short presentation and available to answer any questions from Lions.

The STEP OUT walk will be held at the Downtown San Jose Guadalupe River Park Arena Green, 525 W. Santa Clara Street, San Jose. Check in time for those taking part in the 1 mile, 5K and 10K routes will be 7:30 and the start time is 9 am. While you are there visit the Healthy Living Fair and say “hi” to our Lions working the AJ Robinson screening van !
