HANCOCK -- Lions Club International officials of District 22-W, which comprises Carroll, Frederick, Washington, Garrett and Allegany counties, were guests of the Hancock Lioness Club Meeting on Aug. 23 at Little Sandy's Restaurant.

District Gov. Richard Liebno of Westminster, was joined by Vice District Gov. Stephen Finger of LaVale, 2nd Vice District Gov. Paul Cannada of Thurmont, Cabinet Secretary Liz Eitemiller and Cabinet Treasurer Kent Eitemiller, both of Woodbine, and Region II Chairman Frank Schaller of Smithsburg.

Liebno will visit 56 Lions Clubs and three Lioness Clubs during his one-year term, encouraging increased membership and more community service projects. The Hancock Lioness Club presented Liebno with a donation to sponsor him in a Walk for Diabetes in October in Frederick's Baker Park.

The Lioness Club is involved in vision screening at Hancock Elementary School and Good Shepherd Pre-School and contributes to more than a dozen causes, including vision and diabetes research, hearing and speech impediment programs, high school scholarships, and supporting fire and rescue services.

Money for these causes is raised through Lioness funnel cake sales, bake sales and other fundraisers. The club's most successful funnel cake sale is coming up during the Canal-Apple Days Festival, sponsored by the Hancock Lions Club on Sept. 18-19 in Widmeyer Park.

The Lioness Club also will sponsor a baby contest at the festival, where local children up to the age of 3 can be entered for a chance to win cash and awards.
