Administrator’s Report the holidays are in full swing! Halloween was our largest ever with over 350 visitors. Our contest winners were Med Techs Shannon, the Prettiest as a bunny; Med Tech Arica as a cow, the Funniest; Med Tech Elizabeth as a zipper face, so Scary, and Kim Bradley, Assistant Food Service Supervisor, as an amazing chicken. Each winner received $50. The Volunteer Day led by Lion Jim Edgar, PDG, was a wonderful success and the volunteer shoppers captured some great Christmas gifts for residents at Belk’s Charity Days. There is very little that compares to Christmas in the McCune Community. We are planning on providing a beautiful Christmas for the 74 people that live in our community. Shopping has begun and Lion Clubs are already scheduling parties at the center.

Christmas at the McCune Center- Please remember our residents for Christmas. We will have gifts for everyone and the only way we can accomplish a Merry Christmas for all is with you! These wonderful Clubs, family members, and staff are truly appreciated by the Center as they spread Christmas joy to our residents.

Chase Lions What an exceptional Club! The Chase Lions joined us for supper, a program and a tour. We met with some of their new members and some of our old friends that have visited us for years.

Sand Hill Lions and Haw Creek Lions We are looking forward to visits from the Sand Hill Lions and Haw Creek Lions and the many other Clubs that will join in the festivities; making for a great Christmas!

Zone 5 Meeting was held at the McCune Center with Encompass speaking to a group of approximately 40 people about Diabetes. It was an honor to be a part of the presentation on this very important topic. My gratitude to Lion Governor Alan Lake for the opportunity.

11th Annual Thanksgiving Banquet Thanks to all that were able to be a part of this wonderful event. We had over 200 guests and the food was sensational. Lion President Max Bumgardner, Governor Alan Lake, Gary Ridenour, VIP Bus Driver, and a brand new Valley Springs Lion, and Bobby McIntosh, President of the Resident Council; were the illustrious judges and our potluck winners are our very own Katie Faber, Administrative Assistant;  Karen Collins, family member; Lynn Webb, family member;  and Kim Rice, Housekeeping Supervisor. The fellowship was heartwarming and our dietary staff knocked it out with scrumptious food!
