Waubonsee to Host Charter Meeting of New Lions Club

The new Waubonsee Community College Lions Club will host their Charter Night on May 9, and the evening will feature a visit by international Lions Club leadership.

Charter Night marks the official celebration of the awarding of a new Lions Club. The Waubonsee chapter formed during the 100th anniversary of Lions International, and therefore is designated as a Centennial Club.

The event - which includes dinner and presentation of the new charter - coincides with the Chicago area Lions Club 100th anniversary celebration, and so the keynote speaker will be Chancellor Bob Corlew, Lions International President. Also scheduled to speak and offer welcome remarks are Waubonsee President Dr. Christine Sobek and Michele Needham, Waubonsee Executive Director of Human Resources.

Lions Club International is the largest service club organization in the world. The new Waubonsee chapter launched earlier this year, with its first project held in March, when the club hosted an Empty Bowls soup lunch fundraiser that raised $600 for a local food pantry. Waubonsee ceramics students donated 110 handmade bowls for the event, and faculty members donated nine varieties of homemade soup.

Charter Night will be held at the Academic Professional Center at the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 and Waubonsee Drive.
