Our club has experienced some
changes over the last few months and I want to thank the members who have
stepped up and volunteered to help us all navigate through some of the
adjustments. We now have some members who are in new positions and or have new
responsibilities to a committee or project. I ask you all in the
following months to support our officers and chairpersons and please offer your
time to help with our very important fundraising projects. We had a great
December with our projects and look forward to 2013 being another successful
year as we continue to serve our wonderful community of Cranbury and its
residents. Thank you. Sincerely yours in service, Christine

For those of you who are not Lions -
Lions are the world's largest service organization and lives up to its motto of
"We Serve" at the local, state, country and international level. Much of Lions work is done at the local level
in Lions Clubs across New Jersey and the USA.
Lions has made, and continues to make, important contributions to Cranbury in
the form of financial support to worthy causes, physical gifts to the town and
support to other organizations. We are
men and women of Cranbury and are always open to those who wish to look us over
and make a decision to join and carry on the 80 years of service legacy to
Cranbury. You may join us for a dinner
meeting, work with us on a project or talk with another Lion.
Lions - Here's what you can
do: contact a friend or neighbor and invite them to a Lions meeting; talk with
Jon Goldstein or Christine Thompson about someone you think would be an asset
to our Club and willing to serve Cranbury; look inside your own family,
religious and other relationships you have and tell them about your experience
and invite them to a dinner meeting; ask a group if they would be willing to
listen to a short presentation on the Cranbury Lions (Men's/Women's Clubs,
Knights of Columbus, PTA, social clubs.) Our club's service to the community depends on committed Lions who
continue to make a difference in Cranbury, now and in the future.
legacy of the Lions is all over Cranbury. Consider the service you can provide in a spirit of fellowship and fun
with the Cranbury Lions. Lions consider
why you joined the Cranbury Lions and spread the word of the rewards and value
of serving others.
The Club will arrange a ride for any member who is unable to drive
to the meeting(s). If a Member needs a ride, please contact President Christine
or Lion Frank Marlowe to arrange for a pick-up.
