Lions start a veterans' dinner tradition
When Noblesville Lion David Marsh came up with the idea of having each club member invite a veteran in to share stories, he had no idea how great of a success the night would turn out to be.

"As the vice president, it's my job to get speakers," said Marsh, 76. "So, I had the whole calendar for meetings in front of me, and all of a sudden Nov. 12 jumps out, and I thought it would be a great opportunity."

Each Lion in attendance brought at least one guest who had served in the armed forces, and some members brought two.

Every veteran was honored with a certificate from the Lions Club thanking them for their service.

"This is the first try for this, and I hope everyone enjoys it," Marsh said. "I definitely think it's going to be an annual event for us."

At the Lions' first-time event, Wednesday night, the back room of the Jim Dandy Restaurant in Noblesville was filled with about 50 Lions and their veteran guests.
