“Liberty Intelligence, Our Nation’s Safety”
Greetings, Keyser Lions.
It’s been a busy few weeks for our club. Our first – and only – meeting of July took place on the 18th at 6:30 pm
at University Place on the campus of Potomac State College.After a wonderful dinner, we set out to find out
which Keyser Lions know the most about Lionism.We held a “pub quiz” and at the end of the night members
of one of the teams were declared “wise guys” (ask them to see their certificates).
Our first meeting ofAugust was held on the 1st at 6:30 pm. After a quick dinner, we all got in our cars and
headed over to the new Keyser Primary School.There we had a deluxe tour of the new facility. It was very im-
pressive.Almost makes you want to go back to school.Almost.
On July 31st andAugust 2nd the Keyser Lions manned the Mobile Eye Screening Unit at the Mineral County
Fair in FortAshby. Over the two nights we provided free eye screenings for fairgoers for eight hours.
OnAugust 7th our club hosted the annual Inter-Club Banquet at University Place. It was a great night of fellow-
ship with members of the two Keyser Kiwanis Clubs, the Keyser Rotary, and the Fountain Ruritan. The next day
our club provided snacks and drinks for Mineral County teachers who attended additional Lions Quest training
at Keyser Primary Middle School.The teachers that I spoke with were very enthusiastic about implementing the
Lions Quest curriculum in their classes.
Our second meeting ofAugust will take place on the 15th at University Place at 6:30 pm. Our guest speaker
will be Frank Roleff, President of the Mineral County Historical Society. He will talk about some of the current
and upcoming activities of the Historical Society.
Our first meeting of September will be on the 5th at University Place at 6:30 pm.We will have a guest speaker
from Sarah’s House – ChildAdvocacy Center. SARAH's House provides a different way to investigate, prosecute
and treat child abuse and neglect. It is both child-focused and child-friendly.
Our second meeting of September will be our annual picnic at theWest End Park. It will take place at 6:00 pm
