After a 2 1/2 hour drive I arrived in the town of Ritzville Washington. I've only been here a couple of times, mostly for a quick rest while heading to Spokane or Silver Mountain to go skiing. I do remember one time when myself, wife Tammy, and my two daughters had stopped at the park for a break and we ran into the Ritzville Lions doing a bbq and potluck. I remember,  they were very gracious and ask us to join them.

 Tonight I had the pleasure as their District Governor to meet with them again! As I walked up to their meeting hall I was greeted by two Lions, and was introduced to other members as I arrived inside. 
 We were provided a wonderful dinner and then got down to business.  
 One thing I noticed about the Ritzville club is they are very strong with Lions tradition. As a Governor I had no idea there was a Lions song book, but I found out last night they enjoy singing!
 The tail twister did a outstanding job bring fun and helping empty many pockets of those unwanted quarters. 
 I learned that their clubs Turkey raffle- bingo is a huge a huge success...one member sold over 2400 tickets by himself.
 Ritzville Lions also enjoy visiting other clubs. They have a visitation lined up were 17 members are taking a bus along with a 42lb turkey, (not sure what's going to happen, but I bet it's going to be fun!)
 Ritzville Lions has a mix of young and older members...and one celebrated his 91st birthday last night. They also had two new prospective members in attendance last night, with one joining. 
 Great job Lions!
