More of the Sugar Land Lions Club

I've reposted more old items highlighting the Sugar Land Lions Club since they are celebrating their 75th anniversary this month.

The first photo is from a pancake supper held on March 29, 1956 at the Salvage Hall. My thanks to to Linda Hagler Mosk (DHS '68) whose father is in the group.

1956 Fundraiser
Here is a letter the club sent to graduating boys back in the 1940s.  In this case, the graduate was my father, Charles E. Kelly, Jr. Note the men listed in the letterhead.

I'm not certain of the date for this next photo, but it shows Bill Chadwick, Director of Laura Eldridge Hospital, Esther Kirkpatrick, and Leon Anhaiser.  The Lions Club had just donated money to buy wheelchairs for the hospital.  (The date must be 1966 or '67.)

I don't have a date for the next photo either, but it must come from the mid 1960s.  It shows James Kee presenting a Lions Club donation to the Freeman Post of the American Legion.  Sterling Thomas and Heywood Davis were then leaders of the post.

These clippings from the Fort Bend Mirror come from the June 28, 1968 issue.

The Lions hosted a Christmas party for children in Sugar Land's Head Start Program. This photo and article appeared in the January 1968 issue of The Imperial Crown.

We end with a photo from the April 30, 1975 issue of the Fort Bend Mirror.  It shows Leon Anhaiser and Fred Baker at the unveiling of a plaque at Fred Baker Little League Field.
