Next Regular Meeting

Iron River Lions gather on the first Wednesday of each month. 7:00PM at the VFW club in Iron River, Wisconsin. Dinner meetings are held occasionally on the third Wednesday of the month.

First Ramp Project Completed

Dick and Marilyn Woerle inspect their new ramp.

Richard Woerle is a Korean War Air Force Veteran who has faced significant health issues. As a result, there was a need for an access ramp to be installed on his house. The Iron River Lions Club developed a program to install ADA compliant access ramps within our service area.  Program chair, Jeanne Joseph, contacted the Bayfield County Veterans Service Officer, Kevin Johnson, seeking a funding source. Kevin, in turn, contacted Bong-Hofstedt American Legion Post Adjutant, Chad La Lor. The Poplar Legion Post raises funds through a winter “Warrior Ride.” They were able to provide needed funds to purchase the bulk of the required material. The remaining amount was donated by Iron River Building Supplies where the project lumber was purchased.

Veterans Honored

October 30 found many of the Iron River Lions serving at the Community Center. The occasion was the fourth annual Veterans Recognition Lunch ("brunch" this year). All five branches of the armed forces were represented and saluted with the playing of their respective anthems by Ray Levine who also provided a prelude and background music.

The keynote speaker was Bob Fuhrman, Executive Director of the Bong Memorial in Superior. The highlight of the program was the performance of fourth and fifth grade students from the Iron River Elementary School, singing patriotic songs. Pastor Stai offered a benediction and the blessing for a sumptuous brunch prepared by the Iron River Lions Club. The school children and their teachers headed the brunch line.
