Stephenville Lions Club to host Community Market during Come Home Year 2016

2016 marks the 50th year anniversary of when the Ernest Harmon Air Force Base closed in Stephenville.  Deep rooted in our history and our heritage, the base played a big part of who we are as a community today. Events to commemorate this part of our history are being planned with Come Home Year celebrations, concerts, theatrical vignettes, warbirds and more for July 26-August 7, 2016.

On July 30, 2016, as part of Stephenville’s Friendly Invasion,  the Stephenville Lions Club will be hosting a community market/craft sale.   The number of available tables are limited so book yours early. At just $20 each, they are sure to go fast. Call Jenice at 643-6704 to book your table. Due to the limited number, payment will be requested up front.

Heart”warming” donation

This summer, ten beds at the Lion Max Simms Camp will display a beautiful piece of artwork, thanks to the generous donation of Stephenville resident, Debbie Noseworthy. An avid and gifted quilter, Ms. Noseworthy presented the quilts during a Lions Club regular Monday night Bingo back in December.

The Lion Max Simms Memorial camp is dedicated to offering all special needs individuals and groups an enriching and rewarding camping experience. An experience sure to be more beautiful and colorful thanks to Debbie’s beautiful handiwork.

During the Lion’s dinner meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 12, 2016 Debbie was presented, by Lion Jerry Patey, a certificate of appreciation on behalf of the camp. With 10 down only 70 more to go. As Debbie’s husband put it, “if 70 people committed to donating one quilt each, there’d you have it.”
