The Lions had some beautiful and talented guests at the Monday evening meeting. They were the girl’s basketball team from Ava Victory Academy. They are the 2011 National Christian Basketball Champions, 16 years of age and under, in the 3A Division. Head coach, Rod Scoville, and assistant coach, Don Sallee introduced the girls and each told of the hard work the girls do for the team. Mr. Scoville’s wife, Deana, and Mr. Sallee’s wife, Mary Lou, also attended the meeting. Several parents, John and Gwen Walker, and Mark and Tracy Wiesboeck and son, Matthew, attended. Keith Moore of the Douglas County Herald attended and of course, took photos of the proud team. All enjoyed a wonderful meal with the Lions.
The walk/run on Saturday morning was a success. The weather was rather cold and windy but everybody had a good time, even the dogs who walked. The runners and walkers received a bag of “goodies” and won prizes and had their fill of fruits and donuts and drinks. The winners won some nice, well deserved trophies.
On Sunday morning the Lions fed the graduation class at their “cook shack” on the Fox Trotter’s grounds. The kids had a hot breakfast of scramble eggs, bacon and biscuits and gravy and orange juice. Everyone was very appreciative.
The Lions will be concentrating on the June Fox Trotter show and opening the “cook shack” to serve their meals. There will be some welcome changes in the menu as well as the old standbys such as hamburgers, hot dogs, Frito pies, chicken baskets, and breakfast of eggs, bacon, and biscuits and gravy as well as gallons of coffee.
