At their member meeting on January 5 the Sanibel Captiva Lions Club inducted three new members. Past District Governor, Penny Gregrich, conducted the induction ceremony. The new inductees and their sponsors are Pam Salvo, sponsor Sharon Miller, Linda Grzeszak, sponsor Gerry Miller, and Ken Sebree, sponsor Bill Sartoris. The Lions Club is pleased to have
these outstanding individuals joining us and look forward to their camaraderie and friendship as we continue to serve the community.
After the induction ceremony Dave Truelsen discussed the upcoming mobile packing session for Feed My Starving Children. Feed My Starving Children is a national organization that prepares nutritious food packages which are delivered to children in 70 different countries. The food packaging will be done on Friday, January 28 and Saturday, January 29 at the Sanibel Community Church. The Lions Club took part in this worthwhile project in 2019 and look forward to having a volunteer team participate again this year.
The Sanibel Captiva Lions Club has been serving the Sanibel and Captiva Communities for over 50 years. While the Lions Club is most known for their effort to eliminate preventable blindness, the club serves citizens of the Islands and greater Southwest Florida in a variety of ways. The local club is part of Lions Club International, the largest service organization in the
world with over 1.4 million members in chapters in over 200 countries.
