Oktoberfest Fun with Norshaft Lions
It was Oktoberfest today in Bennington hosted by the Norshaft Lions. What a blast for the whole family! Colgate Park was beautiful and the fall foliage on the mountains, with the Bennington Battle Monument in the background, was absolutely stunning. Norshaft Lions completely transformed the venue into a family friendly playground for all ages. Upon entering the park there were over 40 vendors displaying all manner of Vermont crafts. Kids were enjoying face and pumpkin painting, hula hoop, wagon rides, Baggo, and football toss. Families and kids were everywhere, enjoying the day and in particular the aircraft flybys as they dropped stuffed lions onto the raffle field to see who won. Then a lederhosen clad parachutist jumped form the aircraft and nailed his landing in the center of the field. Of course there was plenty of excellent German food, music, dancing, and even beer. Hats off to Oktoberfest chair Lion Bert Savoia and the Norshaft Lions Club. You folks know how to bring out the community for fun!

Taking the lead on our fight against cancer
Orleans Lions held a dance on September 9th to raise money for the Mary E Wright Halo Foundation. Orleans Lions raised $1,950.00 that was donated directly to the Foundation. The MEW Halo Foundation is a non-profit organization started in 2011 by Mary Wright's family who recognized a need to assist people who had been diagnosed with cancer. 100% of all donations are used to assist cancer patients in Orleans County. The event was held in Lion Dan Malure's barn in Barton, VT.

Fall Cabinet Meeting Service Project
I am writing to ask your club for a donation toward a service project to be held at the Fall Cabinet Meeting November 4th. Attendees, working in partnership with The Outreach Program will produce 10,000 meals which attendees can then donate to their local food shelves or the Vermont Food Bank. The project will take about 2 hours, still giving you a few hours to relax before the LCIF Super Raffle. It’s going to be a lot of fun and will support hunger relief at home and abroad! Here's how it works...
The cost of this project is $2,500. Therefore, I am asking each club to consider donating $75 (or more) toward the cost of this project. Please make your checks payable to Vermont District 45 Lions and send to me directly at: CS Lion Carol Greene, PO Box 92, S Royalton, VT 05068. Please let me know no later than October 14, if your club would like to donate to this District 45 project.

Points are on the board and Lucky has now (10/4) moved back to Brandon. In Region 3 Sir Charles has relocated to Heartland. In Region 2 the General has been adopted by Vergennes. In Region 1 Tucky is now making his home in Essex Junction. It is time for your club to start traveling to other clubs to see what they are doing to meet our motto, We Serve, and to capture the District and Region Traveling Lions. Please review the rules on our District 45 Website, as there are a few changes.
Have fun and learn what our fellow Lions are doing. Please contact me with capture information at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-759-2448. Thanks. PDG Larry Simino

New England Lions Council Fall Conference
Welcoming all Lions to Mt Snow Vermont. You need not be a NELC member to attend. This event brings together Lions from all over New England for training, fellowship and fun.
Of particular interest to all local Lions club leaders will be the 10am presentation of the Constitutional Area 1-A Global Action Team. Or perhaps, also at 10am, you would rather learn about how the Rhode Island Lions Sight Foundation hosted it’s 10th annual Visually Impaired Persons (VIP’s) Fishing Tournament. They would like to show us the ropes and invite other districts to host similar VIP fishing events.
