Harry Stine of Stine Seed Company was the guest speaker. Mr. Stine gave a fantastic talk
about the making of bio fuel at the old tile plant. One of the facts Mr. Stine stated, that
impress this Lions Member, is that 70% of all soy beans planted in the United States can
genetically be traced back to Dallas County, Iowa and the Stine Seed Company.

Lions Members are working on getting ready for our Yard Sale, putting together our Kids
Earn a Bike Program, & working on other programs.

I would like to thank everyone who has/is donating to the Lions Can/Bottle depot. Don’t forget
all proceeds go to the American Legion Fund………………………………….Submitted by Rick Gienau

                             Lesson’s From a Building
       There is an old John Prine song where the singer tells of all those things that robbed
him of his childhood souvenirs. His list didn’t mention a vacant block, void of its buildings, at
the four corners in the middle of the town that he grew up in. The block that used to be the
home of grocery stores, clothing stores, restaurants, apartments, among the other things that
shape a youth’s mind growing up in a rural Midwest town, with the loss of each building on
that block, it made a bigger and bigger void, and another part of my childhood souvenirs were
voided along with it.

        But out of this very same ground we have seen the rise, a re-birth if you will, of a new
building, built on the foundation of the men and women of the legion and what they stand for,
especially those that worked all those breakfasts, those that are still present with us, as well
as those that have passed from us, somehow when I gaze at the new building I still see their
faces and feel their presence. In its short life the building has already served as a meeting
place for friends and family at the breakfast served there, memorial dinners shared there, and
the fund raisers that have benefited community and school district, bringing a new life and
spirit to our town, trust me I have see it in the faces of all who speak of it. We have much
more to look forward to as the spring and the summer unfold, as and this new life and spirit
are nurtured, growing into special memories for our youth and even us old folk too.

       As a Christian I feel especially blessed that I live in the northern hemisphere where the
miracle of Resurrection (Easter) Morning coincides with the rebirth of landscape that presently
seems void to us. Spring bird’s singing brings to witness this new birth, trees re-leafing,
spring flowers giving to us their beauty somehow calling forth the warmth of the spring sun,
and the fields that are now void will soon be planted with the seeds of the promise fall

        As we experience the new life taking place all around us, the voids we witness being
filled with a life that comes from the death of a city block or even a landscape, I would like to
encourage you to look at your own life, is there a void that you haven’t been able to fill? The
void you may be experiencing could be the absence of God in your life, a void that He filled
with the death of His son Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary, and out of the tomb He has
been raised, giving forth His Spirit, that is our foundation of new life in Him, a life that is
abundant “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10 NIV) A
live that is eternal “so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in him
may have eternal life.” (John 3:14a-15 NIV) And this for all who have faith in him “For God so
loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not
perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 NIV)

Wishing you a Happy Easter and a profitable spring from the Soup Club (Redfield Christian
