This Week's Speaker - Lion Tish Taylor
What is JAG, JAG Corps or a Judge Advocate General Officer?
 
Our own Lion Tish Taylor will give us insight into her experience as a JAG Officer in the Middle East and at home.  Tish retired as a Captain from the JAG Corps, moved to Colorado and joined Lions all in the same year.  
The Centennial Patron Party
The Centennial Patron Party
 
Denver Lions who have contributed $1,000 or more to the Centennial Campaign, and those of you who plan to do so, are invited to the Centennial Patron Party  If you made contributions this year to either the Foundation or the Club, including sponsoring an ad in Centennial History book, those amounts count toward the $1,000 to be recognized as a Centennial Patron. Further, you can pledge $1,000 (or the balance to get to $1,000) to be paid by September 1, 2017.  Centennial Patrons will be listed in the Denver Lions Centennial Celebration Dinner Program

Annual Golf Outing
The great year under Lion President "Fletch" is winding down and we are getting ready for our huge centennial celebration in the Fall!  What a great year with so many Lions showing great leadership and initiatives.
 
So, we 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

Grill Masters needed at Lion Camp
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"!
For more information, call the camp at 719-687-2087 or email us and let us know if you can help!
