Good evening my friends.  As you know I’m working with the Sleep in Heavenly Peace - TX, Fort Worth chapter to build and deliver beds to kids in the DFW area.  We have several deliveries scheduled over the next couple of months and could use some more bedding.  You all have been so generous in the past that we don’t need any pillows for a while.  Here is a link to an Amazon Wish List that you can use to ship them directly to my home.  As I understand it you will need to be logged in to see the shipping information.

My name is Erin Lloyd. I worked for John Landrum what seems like ages ago, where I learned about the Lion's Club & what a huge impact they make on volunteerism & the community. I now work at the SPCA of Texas, which has locations in both Dallas & Waxahachie. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping both animals & people in the community. We plan to have our first annual fun run/walk fundraiser at the Getzendaner Park on Saturday, May 13th from 8am to 12pm & are looking for volunteers. I wanted to reach out to see if any of your members would be interested in volunteering at our event from 7:30 to 10:30am? Volunteers need to be at least 10 years old. Volunteers 10 to 14 years old need to be accompanied by a parent/guardian who is at least 21 years old. Anyone 15 years & older can volunteer alone.

The Waxahachie Lions Club had the opportunity to hear from Valerie Holman in our meeting yesterday about her unique opportunity to use media as a missions tool.  Valerie is planning on moving to Spain by June 2023 with the mission organization, Avant Ministries. Avant has partnered with a media center in Spain and together, they focus on utilizing social media platforms to go where missionaries can’t physically go. This includes limited-access North African countries and surrounding areas. Her role in the business office is to make sure everything is running smoothly behind the scenes: scheduling, project assistance, community outreach, local fellowship and recruiting, language learning, and she can even learn a little about how media works! It is a 2-year commitment and she has been fundraising since September 2022. She is currently at 55% in monthly partnerships.
Valerie’s acct # is 12387

The Hachie50 was great!  We are amazed how the Hachie50 Committee, Waxahachie Running Club, Waxahachie Lions Club and all those individuals and various groups helped pulled off another great run for all those who attended.  The Runners that participate in the hachie50 are top notch and a lot of fun to be around.  Each of you are a part of helping many in our community over the months to come.  We are Thankful for each of you. 
We would like to Thank Lucy Gore for the photo we used of the Kids Run.  Those kids are not just future runners but our future leaders.  
Here are a couple of photos from this weekend and more will be provided by the hachie50 and Waxahachie Running Club in days to come.  Also watch for photos on each of their Facebook pages.
