The
Directors
and
Lioness
Representatives in your district are
available to help answer any questions
you may have, can present at your
meetings, and can assist in obtaining
any program materials (e.g. eyeglass
recycling containers, hearing aid
containers, diabetes door hangers,
brochures, etc).
Additionally, these
people are your representatives to the
Wisconsin Lions Foundation – please
convey any topics that you would like
discussed at a Wisconsin Lions
Foundation Committee or Board of
Directors meeting to your district
representatives.
Should there be questions that your
district representatives cannot answer,
we have a great staff at the
Wisconsin Lions Foundation that can
assist.
Thank you again for your support of the
Wisconsin Lions Foundation and
helping Wisconsin Lions efforts of
“Reaching, Touching, and Improving”
the lives of those we serve.

Yet Another Great Birch-Sturm
Memorial Golf Outing
The 17th Annual Birch-Sturm Memorial Golf Outing was
held on Saturday, July 19th at the beautiful Glacier Wood
Golf Course in Iola, Wisconsin. Not only was it a great day
for golf, but for your Wisconsin Lions Camp, as well!
There were 45-$100 Hole Sponsors and 23-$600 Camper
Hole Sponsors. The best part though, we went from 136
Golfers last year to 160 Golfers this year. The Golf Course
was full of wonderful people “taking a swing” at raising
funds for Camp. This year we raised approximately
$26,000.
We unfortunately had to turn foursomes away due to the
wild success we had this year, so be sure to mark your calendars for the 2015 event set for July 18th. We thank all the sponsors
and golfers who make this successful every year.
Totem Pole Dedication
On September 20, 2014 at the Wisconsin Lions Camp in Rosholt Wisconsin, there will be a formal dedication of the
new Totem Pole, Na-Wak-Wa III. The Dedication will begin at 1pm and will include refreshments. Expected guests
are the Central Wisconsin Coop, B&D Trucking, the Lac du Flambeau Lions Club and the Carver of the Totem Pole.
We look forward to this long awaited Dedication and hope you will be able to join us in celebration.
Diabetes
This Wisconsin partnership project is a “must do” for Lion
and Lioness Clubs who are looking for a project that can
be easily and quickly completed. It has great potential for
fun interaction with other local organizations such as the
Leo Clubs, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts and others.
So what is the Door Hanger Project? Clubs are being
asked to simply distribute to local communities a small
informational, two-sided door hanger that is hung on the
outside of a household door. The door hanger provides
information about healthcare quality and offers simple
questions to increase awareness of the risks for Type 2
diabetes.
To order the door hangers in quantities of 100, please call
the Foundation Office at 877-463-6953 or email
