Damascus Lions: Congratulations! We raised $1,869.93 last month during our Spring White Cane fundraiser.
Twenty-five dedicated Damascus Lions performed storefront collections over twenty-nine two-hour shifts. We averaged $64.48 per shift; not a record, but on the high side. Absolutely every shift was important to our total collections.
Please visualize the word “Lion” in front of each name. As always, special thanks go to our White Cane committee members who served as Managers of the Day: Del Mayhew and Tom Jackson. And thanks also go to our money counters, Del & Bonnie Mayhew and Bobbie Warfield.
Four Over-$100-in-One-Shift Club recognitions go to:
- Warren and Joy Schwab, who collected $158.37 at Safeway on Friday afternoon;
- Martin Carr, who collected $128.93 at Safeway on Wednesday afternoon;
- Barbara Barry, who collected $119.86 at Safeway on Thursday afternoon;
- Mary Frances Gosnell, who collected $100.07 at Safeway on Wednesday afternoon.
The Bert Lahr Special Award for Most Courageous Lion goes to:
