March 14 Meeting

At our March 14 meeting our speaker was David Eberly, Lancaster Airport Director.

The Lancaster Airport, built by the citizens of Lancaster County in 1935, is the fourth busiest airport in the State. It is home to 24 businesses that employ over 230 people on-site. The Manheim Township airport contributes more than $50 million dollars per year to our local economy.

It is operated by a five-member Board of Directors who serve without compensation. Two members are appointed by the City, two by the County and one is a joint city/county appointee.

Lancaster Airport covers an area of 850 acres at an elevation of 403 feet above mean sea level. It has two asphalt paved runways: 6,934 by 150 feet and 4,101 by 100 feet.

Sun Air Express offers daily service to and from Pittsburgh International Airport and Washington - Dulles.

In addition to hosting general aviation aircraft, Lancaster Airport is host to a variety of businesses: flight schools, planes for charter, aircraft rides, helicopter rides, hot air balloon rides, aircraft maintenance shops, a restaurant, and a gift shop. It serves the pilots who call Lancaster their home airport and the community.

After the formal meeting, Lion Sylvia presented awards to our Super Sub Salesmen, Lions Manny and Dwight. The pair sold in excess of 200 subs during our recent sale.

Roaring Rights Rivalry - 2016

The Fifth Annual Roaring Rights Rivalry between the Manheim Township Lions Club and the Manheim Township Leo Club was held on March 12, 2016 at the Hamilton Club in Lancaster. Lion Kathy Weierbach once again organized this event which started with an excellent luncheon. This year’s challenge was again Duck Pin Bowling.

The Leo Cubs team defeated the Lion Monarchs team by a score of 381 to 354 to take the match and retain the coveted Trophy Towel. The Lions congratulate the Leos on their win but advise them to watch out for next year. Even though the Leos are up 4 -1, the Lions pride is at stake!

District 14-D Bowling Tournament - March 6, 2016

We had the best time ever this year! This is the first time that we won all three games defeating the West Earl team with a score of 1,976!

Lead by Judy ”The Captain” Frantz, the Manheim Township Lions Club Team members were Jim “Sleeper” Coleman, Ron “Snowman” Henry, Dwight “Eastman Kodak” Rager, and Leo Lauren “The Ringer” Sterner. Lauren of course was our star performer…until she had to leave. Then Dwight really kicked it up a notch and rolled a 206! Jim Coleman bowled better than usual, and Ron made it this year, because there was no snow.

Thanks to all of those that came out to cheer us on!
