Old Capitol Lions Club of Monterey is hosting a vintage motorcycle show to benefit the Blind and Visually Impaired Center of Monterey County. We would love to have you be a part of making it a successful event.

We are inviting motorcycles and riders who want to share their love of these old bikes with others of the same interests. We are looking for show quality motorcycles and daily riders with a story to tell. Barn finds and restoration project bikes are welcome. We will even have a For Sale Corral for those who have more bikes than time to fix them. Continue reading

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.

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!
