FEBRUARY 14, 2009 - The Mexico Lions Club will be holding their 30th
annual Larry Mercier Fishing Derby. It will be held at Ellis Pond, in Roxbury, Me on
February 14, 2009. We are trying to go all out this year because it is our 30th. There
will be a $10.00 per head registration fee that will not only register you to fish (you
still need a license), but also it will enter you into thousands of dollars worth of
prizes. We also intend on having our famous HOT DOG wagon there for hot food
and drink. There will also be several raffles being sold.

                          The Bangor Lions Club is again offering Gourmet Books for 2009. They
                          make great Christmas gifts / Stocking stuffers. The Gourmet book is a
                          booklet of coupons to 22 local restaurants. Each ticket/coupon entitles the
                          owner of the book to one free meal when used in conjunction with the purchase
                           of a meal of equal or greater value. Some of the restaurants include Captain
                         Nick’s, City Park Grille, Geaghan’s Restaurant, HOLLYWOOD SLOTS, The
Lucerne Inn, Opus, Oriental Jade, Governor’s as well as others. Each book is $20 so even with the use of
just one coupon, one is likely to recoup their investment. If there is some individuals in other clubs
interested obtaining a booklet for their own use or as a gift, they can call (207) 262-2530 or e-mail us at
The booklets are valid from January 2, 2009 to December 30, 2009.

Dear District 41 Lions,

Please let me introduce myself: I am Lion Miss Judi (Simonton) from the Camden Lions Club (and
proud of it !) I hasten to get a little note in our Newsletter, so here goes:

At our October 21st meeting in our clubhouse on Lions Lane, there were 46 (yes, count ‘em, 46) present
including 26 Little League Championship team, coaches, and family; two Lions from N. Whitefield and
the Hon. District Governor Buzzell of Casco. The room was abuzz with catching up and goings-on; there
were many hungry appetites back for seconds of nutritious food. Little League Championship Team
Coach John Wickenden introduced his players and presented the Championship Trophy to King Lion
Peter Martin with thanks for the Camden Lions Club sponsorship again this year.

Camden Lions welcomed Governor Buzzell who spoke on processing Hearing Aids & Glasses,
Membership, Camp Sunshine, Lions Newsletter, Annual Convention with questions & answers to

sign-up sheets distributed.

That’s all for now, District 41 Lions        AND            I APPROVE THIS MESSAGE !!

Lion Miss Judi
