There are approximately eleven active members and the Ketchikan Lions Club would like to have more participation from members of the community.
A few of the KLC's activities are:
Recently it was brought to the attention of the Ketchikan Lions Club that the Fourth of July Queen's Contest would not take place this next year unless KLC was willing to coordinate it. The loss of the Fourth of July Queen's Contest will result in a great loss in funding for the fireworks displays. KLC needs an organization to handle Fourth of July Queen's contest. As the population of Ketchikan declines, community members need to consider how much we value our community's events and activities. Many functions may not be continued without increased membership in the Ketchikan Lions Club.
The community of Ketchikan deserves to have quality events and activities. Joining the Ketchikan Lions Club can be your first step in helping to stabilize the situation. There is a yearly membership of $65.00 and meetings are held monthly.
Meetings are held at 6:00 pm on the second Wednesday of the month at the The Landing's Jeremiah's Conference Room. The next meeting of the Ketchikan Lions Club will be held October 8th, 2003 at 6:00 pm.
If you have questions or would like more information, call 225-8682.
