Thursday, July 16th, 2009

We had our Belton Lion’s Club Scholarship recipient in the audience today, Lauren McKeen pictured above.  You can tell that she was speechless in witnessing the spectacle that is the Lion’s Club.  Our program, brought to us by Lion Joe Wiener, is our first nominee for the prestigious POTY award, which is pictured below.  To top off such a wonderful meeting, Lion Larry Montgomery has proven that he is definately in the running for worst joke teller with his joke about baRocky Road Ice Cream.
