The Dugger Lions Club International Chapter will host an induction ceremony, an auction, and a dinner starting at 6:30 p.m. on August 9th at the Dugger Community Center.
The cost is $10 for Lions Club members and $15 for non-members, and everyone is welcome to attend.
President Lesa Lewellyn said the induction ceremony would be a great time to join the club.
The Dugger Lions Club was assigned its Charter 25E on June 16th, and they already boast 43 members. Lewellyn, however, would like to see more people join. Anyone interested in becoming a member can contact Carolyn Settles at 812-648-2472 or Stacy Piker at 812-691-6086. You can also find out more by visiting the club’s Facebook page.
The new chapter is sponsored by Glynn Willis and Ed Hays of the Sullivan Lions Club. Vern and Linda Tinchner of the Riley Lions Club organized the Dugger chapter.
Along with Lewellyn, the officers of the new club include Secretary Mendy Smith, Treasurer Stacy Piker, and Membership Chairman Carolyn Settles.
According to its official mission statement, the Lions Club mission is to empower volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs.
