They recounted the many projects that Moonie had brought to and organized for the residents of Chalapa, Mexico and the surrounding area. Her legacy is an extensive one of generosity and care.


Lyricist and Poet -Alan Lowe
Alan provided many laughs with his Poem of 911.Particularly the 912 call from the woman saying her Mom was on the clothes line. Literally.

Guest Speaker Kris Knutson
Kris Knutson was introduced by Greg Kevin, saying that Kris is a retired educator of thirty years. He spent 22 years educating the students of Lincoln and after retiring from teaching and being a principal, he became very involved in the Lincoln Community. He is a Lion's Club President as well as the President of the Lincoln Community Foundation.
Kris began his discussion by saying that "People of Lincoln care about the People in Lincoln". He gave examples of how the service clubs, the schools and individuals serve the community.
Kris continued by sharing the timeline of the Lion's Club, that lead to what is now an annual Christmas program that serves 600+ families, providing toys in partnership with the Marine's Toys4Tots program, and partnership with Salt Mine that provides food to the families receiving a "Christmas Basket". The Lion's Club continues to participate with the Police program PALS for Christmas shopping for gifts for the children to buy for their families. It seems that these children often refuse to buy anything for themselves.
