2018 May 3 SCIP day for Southeast Polk Students 1
Each year the area Lions clubs, primarily the Altoona Lions, serves a meal for the Southeast Polk students that are on a work project to help the community look better. This is a great project and the Lions support it by serving them burgers, hotdogs, drinks, and chips at Thomas Mitchell Park. The following are photos of the annual Southeast Polk SCIP day for 2019.
The day starts about 8am. Several ALtoona Lions were there that early to get things ready for the students. Shown in this photo is Kit McDowall and Herb Phillips, separating the frozen burgers to get them ready to cook.
Sorry, but our system insists on putting 2 photos in this one. Just ignore the second photo.

Every year it seems that a few students will come to one of the
Lions to thank us for serving them.
As his bus loading was announced, Josh Bristow started
to to the bus, but then came back into the Shelter area
and thanked some of our Lions for the lunch. Yes. There
were many others who expressed thanks as they were being served.
But this young man made the special effort to specifically
speak to us. We commend him for that extra effort.
I don’t have his address . Please pass this
picture on to him for his Senior Year Memories.
From a long time Lion’s Club Member.
