A Word From Our King Lion
Happy May!! This is our busiest month this spring.
At the outset this month, I want to convey appreciation to all of you who have remembered and
supported Secretary Lion Joyce during the loss of her mother. Losing Mom was a difficult process for
Joyce and her four siblings, but, with help from fellow TLC members and other relatives and friends,
Joyce is on her way to gaining closure. Please remember her and her siblings in your prayers.
I’m sure you’ve heard about the serious fire in the historic Emmitsburg hotel which housed more than
twenty people in apartments. Your Board voted to donate $500 to support the efforts to help these
We had a pretty busy April, beginning on Easter Sunday with the annual Thurmont Easter Egg Hunt,
featuring precious Lion Melody as the Easter Bunny. Under Lion Dianne’s leadership, Lions Albie,
Wendy, Melody, Terry, and Susan, joined by other Lions, worked this great event, which our Club has
sponsored, I’m told, for at least the past seventy years! The TMS LEOs stuffed candy in more than
1000 plastic eggs, and Lion Dianne put some cash in others, so that each age group had a $20 egg plus
numerous more money eggs with lesser amounts. After Master of Ceremonies Lion Albie gave the
GO! signal, the event was over in about five minutes, but everyone present enjoyed themselves
immensely. Great job Lion Dianne and committee!!
Leader Dog was a big April feature throughout District 22-W. This year the representative was a
totally blind District Governor from Wisconsin named Len Quinn. He was most knowledgeable and
eloquently expressive about all Lions International programs. He spoke to our LEOs as well as Region
III Lions, including seventeen of us, on April 21st. I am very pleased and proud that we were so well
represented and that we all left the meetings proud to be Lions.
We had two good programs at our dinner meetings. Sheriff Chuck Jenkins, our guest speaker on April
14th, enlightened us on his Department’s position and participation relevant to the ICE program and
about a welcome drop in crime rates over the past year. And, on the 28th, Diedre Moltere, the
County’s program manager for food control, briefed us about the several new requirements for food
Lion Sharon deserves a huge pat-on-the-back for organizing and hosting the very successful Italian
Night Dinner on the 17th to raise money for Lion Paul’s candidacy for Second Vice District Governor.
The annual Teacher of the Year reception at Mother Seaton School on the 20th was superb. Most of the
seventy nominees turned out and all were recognized and presented a certificate. The winners from
each school were awarded a beautiful trophy, and these nine winners are now in competition for
Thurmont’s Teacher of the Year. Lion Susan was at her best as she led several of us in this first phase
of our program to recognize excellence in education in our community.
We also had a very successful Fish Fry on the 24th. Thanks to all who helped with this event, the first
of many upcoming this spring and summer. Special thanks to Lions Doug and Don for all they do.
We’re off to the Multiple District 22 convention May 18-21 at Dover Downs. Your delegates are
Lions Paul and JoAnn, Och, Sharon, Robin, Albie and me. Come on down to help us get Lion Paul
elected and celebrate at the follow-on victory party!
I hope each of you will be able to participate in our annual Art Along the Trail event on May 22nd,
from 9 AM until 3 PM. With great behind-the-scenes help and inspiration from Lion Lynn, Lion Susan
and her committee have organized this thoroughly with several artisans offering their creations and
wonderful entertainment. Please come out and bring your family and friends. Food will be available.
And, please do join us at the Thurmont Regional Library on Saturday, May 15th, where our Lion Vic
will be recognized for his many years of extraordinary service to our community, including his many
deeds as a Thurmont Lion. The festivities begin at 12:30 PM with the recognition of Vic, followed by
ac concert by the band Vic helped start many years ago—The Coachmen, which features our own Lion
May brings us Thurmont Lions the opportunity to express our gratitude and support to our educators,
star students, local charities and support groups, and a variety of Lions’ organizations. We’ll do this at
two dinner meetings—
• Education Night—May 12th. We will honor our teachers of the year from each school and
announce the Thurmont Teacher of the Year. We’ll also recognize our four Catoctin High
School scholarship winners and the students who earned the highest number of service hours.
• Community Night—May 26th. We’ll be recognizing the work of numerous charitable
organizations and making substantial donations to each.
I hope that all of you can be with us for these meetings. These events will make you proud of the hard
work we’ve done in raising money to serve others.
The Thurmont American Legion will have the annual Memorial Day service in Memorial Park at 2:00
PM on Sunday, May 30th. I’m privileged to represent the Club in laying a wreath honoring our fallen
I am privileged to serve as your President. Enjoy the wonderful weather May brings.
In your service, George

TEACHER OF THE YEAR (TotY)
On April 20th, Lions gathered at Mother Seton School (home school of the 2009 TotY – Danielle
Kuykendall) to recognize the 70 nominees for this year’s TotY. Those who were named 2010 TotY
for the individual schools are:
Catoctin High School John Koepke

Lewistown Elementary School Mike Hakkarinen
Mother Seton School Rebecca Martin
Sabillasville Elementary School Marnie Mortenson
Thurmont Elementary School Desiree Harbaugh
Thurmont Middle School Jason Johnson and Berna LaForce --- tie
Thurmont Primary School Kelly Boutin
A big thank you to Sam Miller, PDG Och Ochoa, JoAnn Cannada, Sharon Windsor, Shirley Long,
Wendy Candella, Vic Jagow and President George Bolling who helped make this a special evening for
Mother Seton was a wonderful host.
Plans are well underway for the May 22nd ART Festival. The big hurdle at this point is getting enough
help for the day to run smoothly. Please take a look at the sign-up sheet and the outline of job duties
and help in any way you can. Our ranks are depleted that day as we have Lions in Germany, Italy and
manning an auction booth in Frederick. So this is an all out call to the troops for help.
There will be entertainment all day (9 until 3); strolling entertainment along the trail; and artist selling
their wares and conducting demonstrations through out the trail, as well as displayed art from Middle
and High School students and an art contest for the younger kids. The LEOS from both the Middle
and High Schools will be active that day. We’ll have a food booth as well. Lots going on and fun to
be had by ALL. Invite your neighbors to attend. See the flyer – on next pages. Please note this is a
draft and we’ll have the final ones the week of May 3rd.

GOOD TO KNOW
We have a lot of members who find getting around harder than it used to be and I have found a
wonderful library resource that could benefit many of them (and even some younger members. Maybe
everyone knows about it, but I didn’t until a few weeks ago. Here’s something you might be able to
There’s an amazing resource available though our library that I thought many people would find useful

it’s too late at night, etc. or you’re simply too tired.
About a month ago I learned that Maryland has a State-wide online eBook resource (audio books,
also) that is open to anyone in the State with a library card. The books are read using free Adobe
software that doesn’t require a Kindle or a Sony eBook reader (I use my laptop). Most of the books
use a format that permits you to enlarge the type to virtually as big as you want.
You can check out up to 4 at a time for 2 weeks each and can place holds just like at the regular library
(except that when your hold is available you just download it). You never incur a late fee because the
books “disappear” at the end of two weeks. If you finish one and want to return it early you can do

AND PRESIDENT GEORGE BOLLING
MAYOR MARTIN BURNS PRESENTING LEO BUBBA WILLIAMS WITH A
THANK YOU LETTER FOR PARK CLEANUP
The TMS LEOs had an eventful April. The first meeting of the month on April 7th District 22W
District Governor Robert Disinger and Lion Eileen made a visit to the LEO meeting. The LEOs told
about some of the things they had done and about some donations that have been made. The DG
spoke to the LEOs and gave them praise for all the good work they have done. Also at that meeting,
the LEOs made cards for a victim of the Emmitsburg Fire. They decided on a donation to be made to
a victim who is the sister of one of the Teachers at TMS. They also made a donation to the overall fire
relief fund. On April 12th, the TMS LEOs held their Spaghetti Dinner at Rocky’s Italian Restaurant.
They took over as waiters and seated the customers and took and filled the drink orders as well as
cleanup of the tables. This event was extremely successful and all the LEOs that participated had a
great time. They sold over 70 tickets - Way to Go LEOs!
I attended the LEO Leadership Weekend at Camp Merrick on April 16, 17, and 18th. Ten (10) TMS
LEOs attended. A huge thanks to Lion Doreen Williams and parent Brian Umberger for also
chaperoning. The weekend was great and there were numerous things to do. They especially enjoyed
the campfires. The LEOs planted flowers and earned 8 Service Hours.
A wonderful presentation by DG Len Quinn and Ms. Ginger from the Leader Dog was given to both
clubs held at the Middle School. The LEOs sat back in awe and were very attentive as DG Len told of
how he and Ms. Ginger are a team and how he has to completely rely on Ms. Ginger to get around. It
was even more special when as we were leaving the school, Jason Polansky (a blind student at the
Middle School), got to work a few tasks with Ms. Ginger. Jason will be a perfect candidate for a
leader dog some day.
On May 2nd, I attended a youth recognition dinner held by the Elks Lodge in Frederick County. Three
(3) of the TMS LEOs were given recognition awards for outstanding volunteer work. They were
Savannah Steinly, Hannah Ellis, and Pearl Umberger.
Coming up the LEOs will be making pictures for the residents at St. Catherines Nursing Home. They
will be delivered on May 5th at an appreciation dinner that will be held at the home. In April the CHS
LEOs made goodie bags for the residents and were delivered the day before Easter. Also being
planned is the Tranquility Farms visit on May 29th. Permission slips are going out and an item will be
donated that day.
Both LEOs Clubs have been asked to help with a car wash that the Emmitsburg Lions Club is having
for the Emmitsburg Fire Relief Fund on May 15th. Both LEO Clubs will be helping with the ART
Festival on May 22nd. They will be doing facepainting, tattoos, art projects, handing out balloons and
candy along the trail, and walking the trail as a Lion.
The CHS LEOs will be rescheduling their car wash, there have been numerous conflicts with the
dates. These students are not only LEOs but are also very involved in other activities and sports.
If anyone has any ideas (fundraisers or donations) that the LEOs can do, please contact Lion Robin
Keeny at 301-304-0566 or email at RbKee3@aol.com.

I want to thank everyone for the support you have given me during my campaign for Second Vice
District Governor. The Campaign Committee has gone above and beyond my expectations in raising
funds to cover campaign expenses. Lion Sharon Windsor has already hosted a wonderful Italian
Dinner fundraiser. Lion Gene Long is currently running a raffle and has donated a windmill and foot
stool. His brother has donated a home-made jewelry box Lion Gene is also planning a Golf Outing
and Picnic – scheduled for June 23rd. Lion Susan Favorite is planning an on-line auction later in the
year. A number of other fundraising events are also in the planning stage. A special “thank you” goes
to Lion Sharon for the amazing evening that she planned and executed - doing the lion’s share of
work for the “Italian Dinner” and what a success it was. Many Lions helped with the event and I
thank them all, but a very special “thank you” goes to Lion Lynn Stuart. With everything Lion Lynn is
going through with her health issues; she showed up early on the day of the dinner to help Lion Sharon
prepare for her guests. That act of unselfish kindness by Lion Lynn is the essence of Lionism . Thank
you Lion Lynn.
Some people have asked why it is necessary to campaign if I am running unopposed. There are two
main reasons why campaigning is necessary: When voting takes place at the MD 22 Convention, a
candidate must receive 51% of the votes to be elected. If you don’t know anything about the candidate
running for office you could easily leave the ballot blank for that position. Therefore, it is necessary
for me to visit clubs, hand out rack cards and meet as many Lions as possible.
Once elected Second Vice District Governor and in preparation for serving as District Governor two
years later (if elected); planning must begin to fill 43 District Committee Chairs, Multiple District
Chairs, 4 Region Chairs, 12 Zone Chairs, a Cabinet Treasurer and a Cabinet Secretary position
before taking the office of District Governor. Visiting all of the clubs in the District gives the Vice
District Governors the opportunity to meet potential candidates to fill these positions for their year as
District Governor. No individual can do the job of District Governor without support from Lions
throughout the District and, more importantly, without the support of their home club. The support of
all the Thurmont Lions has been humbling – to say the least - I am thankful for all you have done to
help me to get to this point as well as for all the support I know you will give to me as I continue my
Lions journey. Lion Paul, CS
