AT OUR AUGUST MEETING WE INSTALLED OUR NEWEST LION MEMBER, DEBORAH BOURQUE.
President Kiki, Deborah and Past Preident Phil.
A part of Lions clubs involves pin trading. In June, Past President Phil was elected as a Director in the Lions International Pin Traders. During some of the recent club meetings he distributed pins from the Torrington
Wyoming Club to our club members. Phil and his wife Elaine who is also a pin trader have been traveling to various pin trading events. Recently, they traveled across country to Reno, NV for this year's International Convention. In Feb. they will travel to Nashville, TN for another pin trading event. If anyone is interested in finding out more about pin trading and their travels, just ask them.
