Julie Begalle and Vikki Vollrath were inducted in a candlelight ceremony conducted by Lioness President June Brunell. The new members were presented with their Lioness pins and a corsage.
During the business portion of the meeting, the membership voted to donate decorations for one of the new downtown Mercer lights and to make a donation to the Historic Ironwood Theatre. Begalle volunteered to take on the chairmanship of the bingo kitchen with her sponsor, Louise Minisan, assisting as co-chairman during the summer.
