Our Legacy Project: a Community Playground

In celebration of Lions International's Centennial Anniversary Clubs are challenged to create a legacy project. Iron River Lions' project will be a community playground, located to the west of the Community Center and municipal offices. We are joined in this project by the Iron River Area Foundation and the Town of Iron River. Construction and completion are scheduled for 2017.

This artist's rendering depicts the finished playground area. In addition, there will be seating areas, a gazebo and a wall of fame, celebrating project sponsors.

Groundbreaking occured in early November with representatives from the Town of Iron River, Iron River Area Foundation, and Iron River Lions. From left are Jeanne Joseph, Bob Ruef, Linda Hultman, Helen Hyde, Ray Levine and Bill Trautt.

At the October meeting, the Iron River Lions gave cash gifts to the Iron River Historical Society, the Evelyn Goldberg Library, and the Rural Share and Care food shelf. Roberta Ruef accepts the Historical Society check from President Faith Pittsley.

Linda Hultman represents both the Evelyn Goldberg Briggs Library and the area Care and Share Food Shelf. She accepts those donations from President Faith Pittsley.

New members are the lifeblood of any volunteer organization. Iron River Lions are no different. Two new members, John Angster and John Pieper joined our ranks at the October, 2016 meeting.

As part of their initiation, new members are blindfolded and asked to follow their sponsors on a tour of the room. Lions came into being as Helen Keller's "Knights of the Blind" and this initiation provides a small insight into the world of the blind.

Clad in their official Lions finery, John Angster and John Pieper flank sponsor Fred Baue.
