July 28, 2012 Dinner meeting.

Several area students were invited with their parents to join the Lions at their July meeting and to share recent experiences with the group.

Cooper Thomas and Krista Clark spoke of their experiences at HOBY (Hugh O'Brian Youth) Leadership Camp. This week-long camp, held in May, is open to 10th grade students and usually two students from each school are chosen to attend. 
Joshua Doxey from Pleasant Grove High and Darrell Busch from American Fork High received scholarships this year from the Pleasant Grove Lions Club. Both of these young men spoke of their interests and experiences in high school and their goals for future education.  They both will be enrolled at BYU this fall. 

Kalare Eberting and Megan Bromley represented Pleasant Grove High School at Girls State in June. They reported learning a great deal about government and leadership, the election process, state history and many other things. A number of motivational speakers are part of the experience there. Girls State and Boys State allow two 11th grade girls and two boys to attend. The Boys State representative this year was Jacob Sorenson.  He will report his experience to the Lions Club at a later meeting. 

During the evening, several of the students shared their various talents with those in attendance. Joshua Doxey played a piano solo.  Krista Clark and Kalare Eberting each played violin solos. These musical numbers were very enjoyable and the young people are extraordinarily talented.
