In order to make it to lunch with the Wahpeton Headwaters Lions Brenda and I were on the road before ten in the morning. We found the Prante’s Restaurant without difficulty—NICE place. The women Lions were just arriving from their workplaces for lunch.
The Headwaters group is a great bunch of Lions; very engaged, volunteering and willingly sharing project responsibilities. Their committee reports and minutes are very organized and complete. At this meeting they discussed and planned upcoming junior high and high school dances. They were considering asking the other Wahpeton club to join them on these projects. Typical Lions, they’ve collected a bunch of used eyeglasses and are looking to get them to an appropriate recycling facility.
The club is approaching its 10th anniversary. They generously invited their Peace poster contest entrants to join them for lunch. It was a great experience for those kids to see adult role models dedicating time to helping others.
After lunch we “did” an antique store in Wahpeton. Then it was back to Fargo for an afternoon of shopping (yawn!) en route to an evening meeting in Casselton.
