Donations made this past month were made to the city of Granite Falls to help them recover from the tornado that devastated the town in July and to the 5M-7 Gram.

At our board meeting in July, it was decided that a Howard Lake Lions expense receipt be used when charging any supplies to our Lions Club.  Lion Treasurer Terry Thorson handed these slips out to all who attended the last meeting.  These slips need to be filled out along with the store receipt.  If you need these slips, please contact Lion Terry Thorson.

If you are one of those members who still have not paid your membership dues ($40), please do so ASAP.  You can pay them either by attending one of our upcoming meetings or mail them to P.O. Box 13; Howard Lake, MN  55349.
