The Necedah Lions Club celebrated its 40th Anniversary Saturday night at the Vet’s Hall in Necedah.  Area Lions Club members and their spouses from Mauston and surrounding communities attended to help commemorate the milestone.  Necedah Lions Club President Mary Alice Lasswell introduced three charter members in attendance, Norm Parker, Les Crispell, and Mike Belmonte, Senior.  Other charter members who help found the club 40-years ago included Kelly Jump, the late Norman Munson, Jerry Gregar, Dick Boynton, and Don Swinehart.  Lions Club International is involved in community eye-screening projects worldwide.  Locally, the Necedah Club was active in promoting the reintroduction of whooping cranes in eastern United States.
