The Aberdeen Lions Club T

he Aberdeen Lions Club was chartered by Lions International on June 11th, 1940. The Club, consisting of 23 charter members, was sponsored by the Olympia Lions Club. The Club has always been extremely active with many community improvement projects and fundraisers to earn support for its benevolent activities. Our current membership averages around 70 members. Early projects included the sponsoring of an auto show at the Aberdeen Armory with twelve or more auto dealers displaying their new models. Lions constructed a dock and placed sand on the beach at Lake Aberdeen. This site became the location of the annual Lions Watercade, a swim meet and water show that featured World Champion Log Roller and Aberdeen Lions Charter Member Russ Ellison. Russ and his daughter Diane, also a World Champion and former Aberdeen Lion, were features of the water show for several years. In the 1950’s the Club built the first Little League Park in Aberdeen and later helped move it from East Aberdeen to its present

site at Pioneer Field in South Aberdeen. We sponsored the first Little League team, “The Lions”, which we continue to sponsor today. The Aberdeen Lions have sponsored at least five new Lions Clubs in Grays Harbor County. Our paper recycle project is still a major fund raiser that started in the early years as a house-to-house collection of only slick magazine paper. If newspaper was collected it was taken to the Anderson & Middleton wigwam burner for disposal. We currently are able to recycle newsprint and magazines. We ship approximately 30 tons of paper every 10 weeks. Another project that began in the early days of the Club was the Easter/Father’s Day Breakfast. In the days when people were going to or coming from the beach for clam digs more than 1400 breakfasts would be

served. Door to door sales of light bulbs was another fund raiser into the 1970’s. A project that still has many stories associated with it was providing the Christmas tree for the Whitehouse in Washington D.C in the 1950s. The Club had many social events in the early days. It was a men only club but spouses were very active and would organize to plan and promote social events. Dances with live music were held every six weeks or so. At the Club meetings there was usually singing. Many members were also involved in frequent visitations of other clubs and attendance at District and National conferences. On one occasion, several pilots in the club loaded their small planes with members and headed to British Columbia for a conference. On another, an entire railroad car carried a con-

Companion Animal Hospital

tingent of members to a convention. In the early 1980’s another project came to us when the Driftwood Theatre acquired its present building from the Christian Science Church. The entire interior of the church was in need of a rebuild as a theater and under the guidance of Lions Gene Fogde and Will Foster the work was completed in record time (and has changed very little up today). Lion Will headed another large project a few years later when we built more than a half mile of planters and benches along the River Walk at Morrison Park. We then organized a community fund raising project to fill the planters along the walk with shrubs and trees. Our fund raising efforts have continually evolved. When paper prices dropped, we supplemented our income with Reno Nights at Ocean Shores with members working as dealers. When Native American Casinos were built we sponsored circuses in the area. A popular event and good fund raisers were the Madrigal Feasts at the Aberdeen Log Pa• SEE LIONS CLUB | PAGE 5

Lions Club vilion put on by Lion Bob Niesinger and his talented group of musicians. In the fall of 2005 we held our first food and wine tasting festival and it has proved to be a very successful event and fund raiser. It continues today as one of our major fund raisers. Our service activities continue to change depending on the community needs. Cur-

rently, our Bicycles from Heaven Program is an ongoing service activity. The program was started by the Aberdeen Kiwanis Club and when they disbanded the Aberdeen Lions took over the program. Bicycles from Heaven operates in partnership with the Stafford Creek Correctional facility and the Salvation Army. Used, discarded and abandoned bicycles are collected from a variety of sources (primarily local City Police Departments) and taken to the prison where a crew of offenders repair and completely refurbish them. The Aberdeen Lions pay for the parts, paint, tires, etc. to refurbish the bikes (approximately $3,600

per year). Low income youth are the targeted recipients of the program and can apply through the Salvation Army and receive one of the Lions bikes at no cost. We have also provided bikes to adults who have no other transportation and are in need of a bicycle to get to work. So far, we have distributed well over 3,500 bicycles. When a Habitat for Humanity Chapter was formed on the Harbor, the Aberdeen Lions members were involved in the construction of several houses. The second house built was funded by a grant from LCIF (Lions Clubs International Foundation) and matched by our Club funds and Habitat Chapter. In the nt fro ing ok m c O n-S ts No Pe o % 00 N

Lions Club to low income individuals. Applicants can make application at the Salvation Army and if approved are referred to West Coast Hearing (Dr. Scoones) in Aberdeen for testing and fitment of new hearing aid(s). This program is jointly funded by the Aberdeen Lions and NW Lions Foundation. Several years ago we became involved with the community wide project, Relay for Life, to earn funds for the American Cancer Society. For the past few years our team has annually raised around $10,000 for that event. Our Club actively supports several foundations including, Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) which responds to human needs both in this country and around the world. Their activities range from combating river blindness in Africa, disasters such as Katrina and Sandy, earthquake assistance in Haiti and Japan and other natural disasters around the world, to helping Habitat for Humanity build houses and funding medical missions such as Eye Care We Care Foundation. The Northwest Lions Founda-

tion has a sight and hearing conservation as its primary function. It operates the largest eye bank for cornea transplants in the world, funds eye research and provides a Health Screening Van that. Of course, White Canes Days (benefiting the Northwest Lions Foundation) has always been a major activity of the Aberdeen Lions. The funds we collect are usually supplemented from our treasury and from the interest on a bequest of a former Lion Jim Mason. This year the Screening Van was at the Wellness Fair at Summit Pacific Medical Center on October 15th to provide health screening for eye sight, hearing, blood pressure and Diabetic screening. Another foundation we support is Eye Care We Care Foundation founded by one of our members Dr. James Weyrich. Dr. Weyrich personally directs medical missions each year (he is on target to do five missions in 2016) to remote islands of the Philippines offering free eye examinations and (recycled) glasses. Thousands of individuals have been given better sight by the “Eye Care We Care Foundation201D which has earned recognition and financial support from Lions Clubs in District 19 G (which includes clubs in Southwest Washington) and has received grants from the Lions Club International Foundation.

Simple rules for wine and food pairings Walk into many wine and spirits stores, and you will likely encounter a dizzying array of selections. While wine selections at such stores were once limited to a few well-known brands, many niche and private wineries have begun to make their vintages available to a wider clientele, so now shoppers are treated to both familiar and less well-known options. To novice dinner party hosts, the vast array of wines and flavors can make selecting a bottle or two to accompany a meal a bit more challenging. But one need not be a master sommelier to find the right pairing. The following tips can help anyone select wines to go with their menu or the type of occasion. • Work from light to dark. Just as you begin a dinner service with some appetizers and salad before moving to heavier courses, the wine should follow suit. Select lighter wines to accompany the earlier course before opting for deeper, richer wines as the meal progresses. • Consider champagne to accompany appetizers and opening courses. Champagne works particularly well with salty foods, which is why it is often a good match for hors d'oeuvres. If your's is a cocktail party only, you may want to exclusively serve champagne, which typically pairs well with passed finger foods and even bitesized desserts. • Opt for sauvignon blanc when you do not want the flavor of the wine to be overwhelmed by the food.

gnon blanc works with early courses that pack a flavorful punch. Sauvignon blanc can be grassy or tropical in flavoring, depending on the region in which the grapes were grown. It is commonly described as crisp and fresh in flavor and is often recommended with sushi. • Match delicate seafood dishes with a light wine. Pinot grigio or chablis are delicately flavored and will pair well with seafood. Fish that is served in a rich sauce may be better matched with a heartier chardonnay. • Make rose your go-to wine when serving cheese. Although some cheeses work great with white or red, rose is typically a safe bet when serving cheese because of its acidity and fruity character, offering the best of both worlds. • Hearty meats, such as steaks and chops, pair well with rich reds. Cabernet sauvignon and bordeaux are great when paired with meat. Malbec and shiraz can hold their own if meats are spiced and extremely flavorful. • Rustic wines will work best with rustic recipes. Try to find a wine from the same region from which the meal originated. Pinot noir is a light-bodied red wine that has full flavor and can work with many pasta dishes as well as earthy ingredients, such as mushrooms. Though some people follow a strict personal code regarding wine pairings, your personal tastes should dictate what you ultimately serve. Experimentation can yield an unexpected flavor combination that complements the nuances of both the food and the wine.

Pairing wine with dessert Many people are novices when it comes to choosing the right wine to pair with food, and the same can be said when wine carries over into the dessert hour. Dessert is an expansive term for many different culinary creations, so finding the right wine to go with your dessert is not always easy. Here are some suggestions, courtesy of The Nibble, a specialty food magazine.

The rise of U.S. vineyards BY RONDA ADDY

400 E. Wishkah • Aberdeen • 538-1200

What started out as little more than a million gallons-a-day industry in 1850 has now grown into a 50 million gallonsa-day, $26 billion dollar industry. It is the wine industry, and although California is responsible for over 90% of the wine produced in the United States, other states like New York, Oregon and Texas are starting to give it a run for its money. The wine industry got its start in the United States through European immigrants who settled on the East coast and Spanish missionaries who settled on the West coast. In the East, immigrants planted the vines they had brought with them from Europe, but the vines soon succumbed to unfamiliar diseases and pests. The immigrants were persistent, though, and eventually developed European-American hybrids that survived. Out West, missionaries successfully planted vineyards wherever they established missions in order to have enough wine for mass. Today, wine is big business in the United States. In California alone, there are 280,000

Vineyards acres of vineyards with around 90 million vines. Of the 30 million gallons of wine produced there each year, more than half is dry. Following behind California in wine production is New York and Ohio. New York is responsible for almost three-quarters of domestic champagnes, and Ohio, for clarets, champagnes and sparkling Catawba. The type of grape a wine is made from impacts its flavor. Therefore, it is important to know something about various wine grapes when shopping for wine.

Wine grapes are generally black or white and come in two families: Vitis Vinifera, which is prevalent in Europe, and Vitis Labrusca, which is native to the eastern United States and Canada. All in all, there are over 5,000 varieties of wine grapes. The United States is the fourth-largest wine producer in the world. One winery in California, in fact, is the largest in the world. It was started by Ernest and Julio Gallo, two brothers who knew nothing about wine or winemaking. Unlike European winemakers, U.S. winemakers are allowed to plant whatever grape variety they want whenever they want and blend grapes from different regions.
