Visit #17, Fargo Lions Club, Monday noon October 24, 2011

It was only a short jaunt for us to Fargo—about an hour. The Club meets on the third floor of the Radisson. They have a view of the downtown area from the large window behind the head table that runs the full length of the room. It’s nice and bright.

President Bob Ames has his hands full running herd on this group of enthusiastic Lions. They had plenty of laughs at the meeting and really enjoyed each other’s company. PDG Littlefield led the group in performing “Rockin’ the Vest”—the recent Internet rap video that’s gone viral among Lions. It didn’t seem strange at all to see this mostly middle-aged group putting their “street cred” out there. I like that this club has created its own songbook, which includes modern offerings and favorites.

How does one answer this question posed by the tailtwister, “What do you like most about the tailtwister?” None of the answers were apparently good enough to avoid a fine. I was privileged to be able to induct a brand new Fargo Lion.

Lion Carla clearly enjoyed sharing three Peace Poster entries with the club. Their winner will join those from other clubs in being judged at the state convention this coming weekend.

After the meeting Brenda and I bummed around the big city for a few hours checking out antique stores before heading to Valley City.
