Lion Past President Kurt Peters and Lion Nilou

Lion Past President, Kurt Peters, did not have an easy year. In addition to the usual pesky problems of a Lions club presidency, Kurt endured a serious and almost fatal operation to replace a faulty heart valve. His doctors told him not to┬áreturn to the president’s job because of the potential strain on his repaired heart. But Kurt, not one to leave a job half finished, came back in the Fall to a club that needed and respected his leadership.

And, as if Kurt’s leadership abilities were not enough, we got a “twofer” package with the addition of Kurt’s lovely wife, lion Nilou. Nilou and Kurt filled many important positions in the club during his tenure. But probably the most important, and certainly ┬áthe most lucrative, team effort was running the Silent Auction and Raffle at the Arts and Crafts Fair.

We all hope to leave the world a better place than we found it. On a much smaller, but more personal scale, Lion Kurt has done that for our club this year.

Thanks, Kurt! and thanks, Nilou!
