COMMITTEE OF THE MONTH
Every month we will highlight an active committee of the club and give information on who is on the committee and what they do.
Chairman Earl Hereford
Active members: Kathy Ringler, Mitchell Johnson, Jim Fields, Mac Cauthen
The Program Committee is one of those committees that works behind the scenes and gets little recognition for all they do. They arrange for interesting speakers that make our meetings enjoyable. Read more about this committee by clicking the link below:
Recently, club members took on the project of replacing the cedar shingle roofs on the welcome sign and information sign on Signal Mountain Road. The signs were originally built by club members about 40 years ago and the roofs had lived out their lives and need to be replaced. With financial help from the Lions Clubs International Foundation in the from of a community service grant and funds raised by the club, we were able to purchase the materials needed. Lions provided the labor and did the work. This is another example of how the Lions serve the community.
The Alexian Model Train Is Up And Running
In December 2021 members of the club were asked to help move a model train layout from a basement room at Alexian Village to a 4th floor room in the main building. The train was originally built by several residents about 15 years ago and they have since passed away. Don Eigenberg became the "keeper" of the the train and contacted Lion Jerry Pala to see if members of the club would help move the layout. Jerry and Jeff Nuccio began disassembly in December and then got a group of Lions including Frank Kalinowski, Bill Leonard, Ralph Mann, Paul Jensen, Lee Prins, John Niemeyer and John Behrmann to move the layout out of the basement and to the new building in February 2022. Once in place, Don got members of the Chattanooga Model Railroad Club to reassemble the layout to get it going. It took many months of work and by November it was finally done. On December 10, Alexian hosted the Lions who worked on the project to a luncheon in appreciation for their part in moving the layout and making the train run again. It is an amazing layout and is now open for residents and guest to view.
