It is with great sadness we share the news of the passing of Past First Lady Martie Hidalgo on Friday, January 15, 2015. Please keep her, Past District Governor Larry Hidalgo (Scales of Justice), and their family in your thoughts and prayers.
Scales of Justice Lions is teaming up with other 4C6 Lions Clubs to provide volunteers for the Avaya Earthquakes Stadium concession stand. Here’s how it works: Lions “staff” a concession stand with 7‐17 volunteer members. Group leader verifies inventory counts and distributes cash drawers. Group works together to prep, sell, and manage the concession stand they are assigned to along with a Spectra Stand Manager to handle any questions or complaints and assist in the operation of the concession stand. Within 10 business days of event via check; 10% of sales or $100 per volunteer (whichever is greater/minus any penalties).
There are 19 events from March-October with 10-15 people needed to staff requiring 4-5 hours each event. Scales of Justice Lions will administer.
If you think your club might be interested in participating in this great fundraiser for your club’s charity account, please contact Linda Pugliese (408) 406-8509 and let me know which training date you will be attending. Certification for all team members is required even if it’s for only one event. We will have an online volunteer board for easy signups.
