Kansas White Way - Coming Through Clyde May 2014
A recreation of the Kansas White Way will be held on Saturday, May 10, beginning at 8 a.m. in both Atchison and Concordia. Frankfort will again be the epicenter as convoys of vintage vehicles depart from the Atchison County Historical Society Museum in Atchison and the Brown Grand Theater in Concordia to honor those visionaries who brought us one of the first organized highways in the state of Kansas.
Towns along the route are encouraged to welcome drivers. The car run will include modern vehicles, classic cars, Cushman motorcycle clubs, and vintage cars of all makes and models.
For more information on the Kansas White Way car run, call Lori Parker at 785-363-7228, or e-mail her at email@example.com.

Exciting Times for the Clyde Lions Club
Recently, the Clyde Lions Club asked their local community to join them for a test drive of what the Lions are all about. The dinner and informational session was a great success and the club members would like to extend a thank you to everyone that attended. As a result of the meeting, the club added 5 new members. This kind of growth is necessary to continue providing community service and the club is excited about the future.
“The Lions Club is a social group that has always allowed me the opportunity to meet new business people in town.” said Lion Harold Poland, member since 1949. “Being a member of the Lions Organization is a great experience. Our goal is to provide community service to the local area when and where it is needed.”
“I was a Lions Club member when I lived in Oklahoma,” said new member Lion Gary Sipe. “I can’t believe that I waited 10 years to get involved again. The Lions Club is a very worthwhile organization that promotes community pride while supporting many service projects.”
The Clyde Lions Club welcomed the following 5 members that joined as a result of the informational session: Alan LaPolice, Ellen Preston, Gary and Jody Sipe, and Diane Snavely. Other members that have recently joined include David Scott, Janet Pearson, and Becky LaPolice-Murphy.
Are you interested in becoming a Lion but not sure how to apply? You can get information by asking one of the volunteers at local events. One of the local projects involves helping out at high school sporting events by operating the ticket gates. Another service effort includes assisting with the local blood drives. Please take time to stop by the ticket gate or the blood drive and ask how you can get involved by becoming a Lion. You can also get more information at our website and Facebook page. Our web address is www.e-clubhouse.org/sites/clyde_ks.
The Clyde Lions Club is looking forward to expanding their community service efforts as a result of adding new members. Information brochures are available at various local businesses and can be sent to anyone that is interested. The Clyde Lions Club meets on the 2nd and 4th Monday each month at 6:15 at French Quarters. For more information or to get involved with the Clyde Lions Club, please contact Harold Poland at 785-446-3624.
