April 9 speaker Dr George Goodman
Our speaker has two careers optometry and brewing beer.
Dr. Goodman is a member of the American Academy of Optometry (AAO), American Optometric Association (AOA), Colorado Optometric Association (COA), Optometric Council on Refractive Technologies (OCRT), and is an Adjunct Faculty Member at NSUOCO.  Dr. Goodman is a Fellow of the American Academy of Optometry (FAAO), and is certified in Anterior Segment Ophthalmic Lasers.  Dr. Goodman has published multiple books, including an Ophthalmology textbook, and has been published twice in Review of Optometry on the subjects of Dry Eye and Corneal Biomechanics.   In his spare time, Dr. Goodman enjoys lecturing, writing, making craft beer, playing hockey and snow skiing.
When we met BURLY Brewing Company founder George Goodman in late 2017, he shared with us his dream for the brewery he planned to open in Castle Rock. His brewery would feature a large, comfortable gathering space, filled with natural woods and custom-made decor. There would be a stage for live music inside, a patio for enjoying the scenery outside, and a private room where small groups could gather. His brewhouse would be large enough to fill 24 tap handles of craft beer, including flagships and many rotating seasonal brews. That alone is an aggressive goal for any brewery, much less a start-up. As an award-winning homebrewer he planned on being hands-on in creating the beer recipes, but he was wise enough to know he’d need someone with professional brewing experience to help scale up the recipes and keep the taps full. Oh, and he was going to do all of this without giving up his day job as an optometrist.
Lions Camp Work Day -Saturday April 13
Spring Cleanup at the camp is just around the corner!   Staff will start arriving on May 28th and their first group of campers will be there on June 4th! 
The camp needs our help! It takes a lot of volunteers to get the camp ready for the 380+ campers that will be attending this summer. There are jobs for everyone!   This year we'll have an added focus on fire mitigation and clearing shrubs and debris away from the buildings, in addition to the many recurring projects like getting the arts&crafts and bikes ready, cleaning up the dorms, etc. 
Bring new members, old members, family, and friends! 
Date:  Saturday, April 13, 2019
Time: 9 am to 4 pm
Location:  Colorado Lion Camp, 28541 HWY 67N, Woodland Park, CO 80863

We are trying different communications channels to increase the visibility of the Denver Lions Club.  We have published the Ethiopian mission article on the Denver Post YourHub.  This part of the Denver Post focuses on local neighborhood news.  CLICK HERE to see the YourHub article,  
Bronco Tickets
It is almost springtime and time to think about Bronco's.  The Club has two pairs of Bronco's season tickets.   The seats are section 103 rows 13 and 16.  If you ever sat in these seats you would know how great they are.  Up close to the action on about the 30-yard line.  Pure excitement. 
As we did last year we will auction the tickets to Lions..  The process is if you are interested in one or both pairs of tickets send an email to Lion Dwight that you are interested.   He needs to receive the email that you are interested in participating in the auction by April 30.  We will then have a sealed bid auction with the interested Lions.  High bid wins.  
The face value and minimum bid is $3452 for one pair of tickets for the regular season games.  The preseason games are available at no charge.  We usually give the preseason games to Savio house.  The winning bid above the face value can be given the Foundation.  
If you want to be in the auction send an email to Lion Dwight. 
The Home games are:
  • Jacksonville Jaguars       
  • Tennessee Titans            
  • Chicago Bears   
  • Detroit Lions     
  • Cleveland Browns           
  • Los Angeles Chargers (AFC West)             
  • Oakland Raiders (AFC West)       
  • Kansas City Chiefs (AFC West)
