On Wednesday, Dec. 9, the Ely Lions Club held their weekly meeting at the Jailhouse Buffet room. Nine members attended and discussion items included recent events such as the club’s 46th annual wrestling meet held last weekend. After expenses, the meet earned the club a net gain of almost $400.

The club is also seeking volunteers for this holiday season. Volunteers can help serve their annual Christmas Dinner or deliver about 200 Christmas meals to homes around town. They are also asking for 10-12 cooked and unstuffed turkeys.

The club recently received an anonymous $4000 donation, $500 of which they approved as a donation to the Ely Ministerial Food Bank.

Next week’s meeting on Dec. 16 will be the last of the month and year for the club. After that, the club will meet again on Jan. 6, 2016.
