If you can help please let me know as soon as possible. The first group will need to arrive between 5:00 and 5:15 on game day. Be sure to wear your Lions vest, club Lions shirt, or district Lions shirt. Even if you cannot help, but plan on attending the game, let's show our Lions Pride.

2013 Lions Club Night at Arvest Ballpark
For the 2013 Lions Club Night at Arvest Ballpark we wanted to focus on a fun outing that could serve as a recruiting tool for all of the Lions clubs in the area. It is my hope that this event will be an opportunity for Lions Club members and recruits to experience a broader view of Lions Club International than they normally would get to see.
We are going to host the event on June 14, 2013 against the Springfield Cardinals. Tickets for Lions Club members and their guests will be just $6 (they are normally $9 on the day of the game). Lions Club members and guests will also have the opportunity to purchase prepaid meal vouchers, Kid’s Zone wristbands, and parking passes at a discounted cost (please see attached order sheet). I only ask that your final order is sent to me by May 31st. Of course, the sooner that you can get it taken care of, the sooner that we can get the tickets and vouchers into your hands so that you may pass them out to all of the attending members, their family members and recruits.
As a part of the night, all Lions Club members will be recognized on the field, while the Lions Club International logo is displayed on the video board. Also, I have reserved the Naturals Sam’s Club Community Room for us, so that we can all have an open area to talk and converse prior to the game (one of the perks of having a Lion working for the team!). Finally, following the game we will have a Fireworks Spectacular.

A personal note from PCC Steve Wise states that Alice has been diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. To keep up with what is going on, he has set up a Caring Bridge site for her. Go to caringbridge.org and type in Alice Wise for the visit site.
Note from Lion Cathy (web master) - This is a safe & free site after setting up an account. My Pastor had one when he was in a very bad wreck & it was easy for family & friends to keep up on him.
