    Bits and Bytes

    Oak Brook, Illinois, USA, November 12, 2009 – Lions formally dedicated

    Peng Hua Lions Village in Sichuan Province, China. A total of 80 homes

    were handed over to families during a ceremony attended by LCIF

    Chairperson Al Brandel and his wife Dr. Maureen Murphy, Second Vice

    President Dr. Wing-Kun Tam, nearly 50 Lions clubs members from

    throughout China and Hong Kong & Macau, and the local vice mayor,

    other local dignitaries. The dedication marks 1.5 years since the earth-

    quake and is part of a two-phase project to construct more than 150

    homes.

    Free the Children Holiday Run is a tradition at Markham District High

    School. On Tuesday, December 15th we will be having our 8th annual

    Free the Children Holiday Run. Students from Markham District High

    School as well as our feeder schools will be participating, by collecting

    pledges prior to the day of the event. On December 15th they will run 5

    km to raise awareness against children exploitation, poverty, and illiter-

    acy. This day will bring hope to children, and take a step to provide edu-

    cation for children, and change the lives of many.

    Join Markham's Olympic Torch Relay Celebration

    Thursday, December 17, 2009

    9:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

    As a "Celebration Community" along the historic Olympic Torch Relay

    route,

    Markham invites you to come and help welcome the flame in style!

    Markham Civic Centre

    101 Town Centre Blvd.

    Northwest corner of Highway & Warden Ave.

    Festivities starts at 9:30 a.m.

    In parts of the world, Santa arrives by sleigh, slides down chimneys or

    walks through front doors. But for people living in small island communi-

    ties in the Pacific Northwest, access to the mainland is limited – and chil-

    dren rarely have the chance to visit Santa.

    Lions clubs in the Pacific Northwest saw the need, and wanted to do

    something to make the holidays happier. "The kids on the islands didn't

    have transportation to and from the big cities," according to Don Wight

    of the Bellingham Lions Club. "One of the islands asked if a boat that had

    lights on it could possibly come out to the islands with candy and toys

    for the kids."

    That marked the beginning of the Christmas Ship. Every December for

    the past 60 years, Santa has suited up and stepped off the Christmas Ship

    to bring gifts and joy to people living in remote islands off the coast of

    Bellingham, Washington in the United States and British Colombia, Can-

    ada.

    What happened when the snowman annoyed

    the snowwoman?

    She gave him the cold shoulder.

    THE ROVING EYE PART ONE

    Dan was a single guy living at home with his father

    and working in the family business.

    When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune

    when his sickly father died, he decided he needed to

    find a wife with whom to share his fortune.

    One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted

    the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her

    natural beauty took his breath away.

    "I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her,

    "but in just a few years, my father will die and I will

    inherit $200 million."

    Impressed, the woman asked for his business card

    and three days later, she became his stepmother.
