The owner of the Purple Turtle catered a wonderful Thanksgiving type meal to the 50 or so people present.

Anne Fisher and Darlene Seely had much to do with getting the history of the club together. There were a couple of tables or memorabilia. Jo Taylor and Lori Jonas worked with decorations and center peices. We thank all those who made this wonderful anniversery possible. These kind of celebrations help us reflect on the wonderful service Lionism has provided since 1917. The Pleasant Grove Lions club has been in Pleasant Grove since 1938.
