Front of the Lions Crab Feed Teeshirt
Shown above is the design for this year’s teeshirt, which was first introduced back in August. Only one comment was received on the proposed design. They should be priced the same as last year. Hopefully, we’ll get more than two sponsors, which is all we had last year. $225.00 gets you the ad, plus a teeshirt. Let your business associates know and help them spread the word about their business.

11/29/18 from Lions International about The Service Journey. “The Service Journey is an approach to living and serving well. To making a real difference people can see and feel. It encompasses four simple phases: Learn, Discover, Act, and Celebrate. We love these words because they transcend organizational formulas. They have no borders. They are the essence of Lions and Leos.”
