The Barker Lions Club held its opening meeting on Wednesday, Sept 5. President Kent Wakefield ran the program. In addition to outlining what he'd like to see at the monthly meetings, committee chairs had the opportunity to present updates.
Lion Past President Mike Feltz talked about the three upcoming chicken barbecues. In addition to the Somerset Historical Society's upcoming event on Sept 15, the Lions have two more this fall. Volunteers are needed to help serve at the Babcock House on Sept. 15. Lion Tom Mallon has reached out to students at Barker Central School who need volunteer credit.
Past President Kevin Bittner updated the group on the fall cheese sale. The Lions are working with Kutters Cheese. Order forms are due by Oct 17 so that the cheese can be delivered by Nov. 14 in time for Thanksgiving family gatherings.
Upcoming programs at meetings include presentations for Lions District Gov. Jeff Jarvis, new Barker School Superintendent Jacob Reimer, the Dale Association and the Palace Theater.
The Lions meet at 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month. Each gathering includes dinner and speaker. For more information about Barker Lions and its projects, visit www.BarkerLions.org
