A Message From The Lake Tulloch Lions President, Ken Gutman
Your Lake Tulloch Lions have been actively supporting youth activities in the Copperopolis area. Victoria Gaffney spearheaded support for the Special Olympics and the Lake Tulloch Polar Bears. The club provided $1000 to support these causes. We also received a request from McKenzie Blair and donated $1000 to the NCAA to support her participation in a track event in Australia. She is presently a high school student participating in track at Bret Harte High School. She will attend a future meeting to share what her participation in this track meet means to her. We provided another $1000 scholarship for Morgan Fox to participate in the Special Olympics in Washington state. Morgan and her family attended a Lions meeting and dinner to receive her scholarship.
We thank Copperopolis and the surrounding community for continuing support of our Crab Feed. We had a record and banner event.
Our February meeting was held at the Copperopolis Fire Department where we received CPR instruction.
Have you noticed our Free Little Libraries? They are located at Black Creek, IGA and Roasters Coffee. We ask everyone to take a book and leave a book.
Anyone interested in joining Lake Tulloch Lions Club can call Ken and Donna Gutman, 408-710-0741.
Lake Tulloch Lions Club recently added three Little Libraries to the community, located at Black Creek Park, Roasters Coffee and IGA. Calaveras First Five registered them with the national organization. The Libraries provide easy access to books allowing you to borrow a book and leave a book for others. Dave Grimsshaw and Bob Toynbee built the libraries which are maintained by Lois Kline, Sigrid Kehr and Donna Gutman.

The Angel Tree program is put on by the Lake Tulloch Lions Club every year at Christmas.
We post flyers all over our community asking people who are in need to send a letter to our post office box requesting assistance. Members also contact the parents receiving assistance thru the Copperopolis food pantry. And we also check in with our Copperopolis elementary school for names of families in need.
We then contact each family to see what is needed and what the child would like for Christmas.
Angel tags are then made and taken to the Christmas Tree at our local Umpqua Bank. Persons who want to participate in this gift giving takes a tag and then goes shopping for the child.
All gifts are recieved at our Century 21 real estate office.
Members pick up these gifts and organize them for distribution.
This year 2018 we had a total of 31 families participating and 64 children who recieved gifts.
Thank you to everyone who participated this year.
A special thanks to Century 21 for collecting the gifts. And thank you to Mary Shannon...Sherry Lozano...and Hector Lozano and Segrid Kehr for helping in making the kids of Copperopolis have a wonderful Christmas
