A large crowd gathered on Saturday evening at the Fulda Legion Community Hall to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Fulda Lions Club. About an inch and one-quarter of rain fell during the day on Saturday leaving the roads both slushy and icy. Due to a snow storm to the north of our area, a few people who were planning to attend the celebration were unable to come.

The present District Governor for Lions 5M3 and several past District Governors of Lions 5M3 were present at the festivities. These honored guests included Past District Govenor Wayne Radloff, Immediate Past District Governor Vickie Radloff, Lynd, MN; Past District Governor Jim Krueger, Windom, MN; Past District Governor Harold Marske, Worthington, MN; Second District Vice Govenor David Laechel, Jeffers; and District Governor LeRoy Leverson, New Ulm, MN.

Past District Governor Harold Marske of Worthington shared that he had served as the Toastmaster at the Charter Banquet for the Fulda Lions Club in 1963. He shared many fond memories of the original charter members of the Fulda Lions Club and that they all believed that a local service group was needed and were committed to getting it started and making it a long term success. Past District Governor Marske, who is now 87 years young, attended Saturday’s celebration along with his wife and daughter.

The Fulda Lions Club members extend a special ‘thank you’ to Monica Marske, Harold’s, daughter, for driving the family to this special event as Harold and his wife are no longer able to drive at night.

A catered, two-meat buffet meal was served by Gramma’s Kitchen of Fulda to begin the celebration. A special cake had been baked to commemorate the 50th anniversary by Cathy Stewart, Fulda.

Fulda’s Area Big Band provided wonderful entertainment for the audience’s dancing and listening pleasure.

Fulda Lions Club has already started on the path toward its next 50 years as a service club. They are greatly appreciated in the Fulda community.
