GREENSBURG – Members of the Greensburg Lions Club installed new officers for the 2014-2015 year at the club’s annual pitch-in dinner June 23 at Camp Woodsmoke.
Camp Woodsmoke, a beautiful and spacious camp located in the woods of Decatur County is owned by the Lions and is sustained through charitable donations. The camp is best known for providing a place for children with special needs to attend camp and its paved paths make even the walking trails handicap accessible.
The Lions usually meet once a month at the Greensburg REMC, but the annual pitch-in is a special affair. Sue Topf, Lions head of state, council chairperson and friend to the Greensburg Lions, was in attendance to officially install the club’s new officers for the next year.
Topf thanked outgoing president Kaywin Lindsey for his hard work and verified that the officers were duly elected before proceeding.
Lion Ivan Nading was elected song leader for the club and Lion William Fisher was installed as the club’s chaplain.
Lion Dudley Myers took over the role of lion tamer, which largely involves responsibility for the club’s property, as well as proper placement of club flags, gong and gavel, and assisting with greeter duties.
The new tail twister, Landis Royce, took office, with duties such as keeping the harmony in the club and encouraging good feelings, life and enthusiasm in the club to be executed over the next year. According to Topf’s description of duties, the tail twister may impose and collect fines at the meetings. Promoting fellowship, fun and laughter appears to be a duty Royce looks forward to.
The new members of the Board of Directors was announced at the meeting as well. Forest Sandefur and Irvin Ferguson were installed as one year directors and Don Binney and Dudley Myers were installed at two year directors. The Lions’ Board of Directors assists in formulating and executing the policies of the club.
