Annual Golf Outing
SIGN UP FOR GOLF BY JUNE 2
 
Need a little fun!  Our annual Golf Outing should prove again to be a great roundup to the year. AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A GOLFER TO JOIN IN THE FUN!
 
We play a simple scramble that anyone, and I mean anyone, can play.  And if you don't play, we have a great dinner and awards afterwards that takes no special talent to attend!
 
In celebration of our 100 years, we just might have a few special guests at our golf event also.  Jack, Tiger, Dustin, Jordan, and even Arnie (we have connections) have expressed an interest in attending!  You sure wouldn't want to miss that!
 
here are the details:
  • Golf starts at noon on June 17th at Meadow Hills CC in Aurora, CO
  • Foursomes are encouraged to join or we will pair you up
  • Golf is $71 per player
  • Dinner is $25 per person and that includes your tip
  • Cash bar
  • Prizes for all kinds of good and goofy stuff
  • Golf is played as a scramble with some twists - rules to follow
  • Invite friends, relatives, girlfriends, boyfriends, kids, wives, and husbands to play with you.  We welcome all!
 
Please RSVP to this email or directly to me, Bogey Krebs, at coloradokrebs@gmail.com.  Right now we need a minimum of 5 foursomes like we had last year but we can take more.
 
Also looking for donations again for prizes.  Let me know what you can do!
 
Looking forward to a great party to end the year

Calling all grill masters! The Colorado Lions Camp has a great opportunity to get plugged into our camp programs. We are looking for Lions Clubs, service organizations, or families to come to camp on Sunday afternoon and grill hot dogs and hamburgers for our campers and staff while the campers are checking in for their week at camp. The camp provides all the supplies. This is an excellent way to see the camp and to bring new members and show Colorado Lions oldest State project in action!
 
We just need volunteers that will help cook, serve, and meet our fabulous campers and staff! We need at least 6 volunteers. No experience necessary - just a love to 'serve"!
