Jekyll Island Lions helped with an American Red Cross blood drive on the island, 27 July 2017. Lion Howard is the local Red Cross blood drive coordinator and he helped to set up this drive at the Presbyterian Community Church. Lions Cathy and Peter volunteered during the event. Lion Cathy ran the registration desk for two and a half hours while Lion Peter served as a donor escort and beverage/snacks monitor.
In the meantime, Lion Pete tried his hand at putting together a newsletter for the Club. Lion Howard had mentioned to him that at one time, the Club had a newsletter and it sounded like a good idea to revive it. The first one Lion Pete drafted just covered the month of July, which actually was quite busy considering that the Club was technically on summer break. He sent the newsletter to the Club members via email along with a separate leadership training survey from MD 18-N. The first page of the newsletter is below.
