Tri-Lakes Lions Club awarded a $2,500 College Scholarship check to Shannon Cornuke at our September monthly membership meeting.

Shannon's accomplishments in community service are amazing, all the while struggling and winning against a severe medical challenge. Awarding the scholarship is our District 6SE Gov Cathy Valenzuela, our Tri-Lakes Lions Club President Lion Dave Prejean, and our school district Lions Coordinator Lion Bob Foster who proudly stood with Shannon, along with tears and applause from our club members, cheering Shannon's accomplishments, courage, and strength of character.

Our Country and our Lions Club International are certainly in safe hands with outstanding citizens such as Shannon leading the way into the future. ROAR!

At our Tri-Lakes Lions Club July meeting, we heard details and future plans from Sandy Esposito and her Helper dog Bobbie for Guide Dogs of the Desert. To-date, 40 dogs have been sponsored, trained and united with their human partners in an amazing team benefiting both the human and their K9 companions. Be sure to consider their September 17th benefit concert in Pueblo Memorial Hall with guitarist Collin Raye. Tickets are available, call 866-722-8844 to help continue the great work of Guide Dogs of the Desert. Thanks.

The Tri-Lakes Lions Club had the honor to restart the annual Palmer Lake Kid's Fishing Derby after local community efforts succeeded in refilling bringing Palmer Lake and bringing back to life our great Northern El Paso County resource and open space.  Over 220 kids Pre-School to Middle School brought their parents and families to the festivities.  Prizes, excitement, and just an all together fun family day resulted in everyone becoming a winner in the derby.  Our Pre-School winner took the top prize and from the looks of things, has a memory to last a life time from the revitalized Fishing Derby tradition in Palmer Lake.  His winning fish was over 12 inches and his winning smile even bigger.  See everyone next year for another great Colorado Day and many thanks to the State of Colorado Parks and Wildlife Department and our taxpayers for supporting stocking the lake and providing training in fishing and safely enjoying anotgher Colorado day in the sun.

Great news for the "HEARS" Program

Since 1988, the Pikes Peak Sertoma District has been providing hearing aids and related services to low-income, hearing impaired individuals who could not otherwise afford them.  The program is called HEARS and is administered by Sertoman volunteers working with local audiologists and ENT's wo offer theoir services at reduced rates.  This great program has provided audiology testing and brand-new hearing aids to over 2,300 qualified individuals ranging from 18 months to 100+.  

Funding for HEARS comes from Sertoma club contributions, donations, and from our annual "HEARS 5K experience", a 5K fun walk/run held in August each year.

The great news is that Debra Powell of Broadmoor Audiology has agreed to become the title sponsor for this years 5K and is donating $2,500.00 to this years event.  Debra and her husband are owners of Broadmoor Audiology located at 1685 Briargate Blvd.  To honor her gift this years event will now  be called:

Ann Sullivan Award Presentation

Jeannie Prejean was presented the Lions Club International Ann Sullivan Award for outstanding community service in early May.  The award recognizes "Lions and others who work hard behind the scenes and limelight, expecting no reward or recognition," the award letter states. "They assist and help the leaders of our association without regard to personal gain or achievement. These persons are a vital part of the Lions of Colorado and should be known for what they do."

The award is named after the woman who taught Helen Keller, a deaf and blind child, sign language and Braille. Keller went on to challenge the Lions Club International Convention to become "knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness." The Tri-Lakes Lions Club continues this honorable work to this day with support for eyeglasses and other Eye Bank and Cornea replacement activities in El Paso County.

Sullivan was herself partially blind, and she and Keller remain inspirational to Lions around the world.

Jeannie was nominated by the Tri-Lakes Lions Club for her work supporting El Paso County District 6-SE and Northern El Paso County and is being presented her award by past Colorado Lions Club District Governor  Don Rose and current Tri-Lakes Lions Club President Dave Prejean  during the regular “First Thursday” monthly Lions meeting at the Monument Country Club.
