More than 60 Lions and guests enjoyed a holiday dinner at The Ram’s Head Inn on Thursday, December 14th.  We were honored to have our District Governor, Peter Tamsin, and Past District Governor, Douglas Marange, join us.  DG Tamsin conducted the induction ceremony for four new Lions:  Melissa and James Heus (sponsored by Susan Binder) and Bernard Ott and  Gerard Drumm (sponsored by Chris Carey). PDG Marange presented Lion Marilynn Pysher with the “Miracles Through Service” award from the New York State Brandel-Murphy Youth Foundation for her many years of voluntary service to local youth.

Holiday music preceding the dinner during the hour in the bar was provided by Tom Hashagen and Lisa Shaw.  And four Lions (Tom Hashagen, Ed Brennan, Chris Carey, and Jim Gereghty) entertained us with their singing.

Snapper Derby – September 2, 2023

With over 65 entries, the winner of the largest snapper was Isabel Thilberg, with a big little fish weighing in just under a pound at 0.935 lbs.
Our bluefish competition was exciting with 8 really nice looking fish entered.  Jackson Clark’s fish weighed in at 8.945 lbs to put him in the second place position. Tom Kenny’s blue tipped the scales at 10.08 lbs, making Tom the winner of our bluefish competition. Congratulations Tom,  what an impressive catch! 
Congratulations CJ and Harper Rolger, our winners of the catch and release; they were casting all day and released 50 fish. What a team! 
All of our artists had a wonderful way of capturing this fun summer event. Our three winning logos were both creative  and whimsical.  Congratulations to Max Toth & Sophie Ratner, William and Jordan Marz.
Everyone was excited to wear the logo t-shirt designed by Elijah Freund in 2022.  Join us next year to see which one of the winning designs will make it onto the t-shirt.
