Conroe Noon Lions Club Meeting

With Conroe Noon Lion's Club Program Chairman, "Lion" Pete Brasher, and President, Mel Lonon

Congratulations to the Conroe Noon Lions Club on being the second largest in the United States. Of the 43,000 Lions Clubs in the world, the Conroe Noon Lions Club is the fifth largest. Pretty impressive, huh?

I had the opportunity to address members today and thank them for their service and dedication to building a better Texas. These men and women understand the importance of giving back and are very active in benefiting worthy causes in the Montgomery County area.

Montgomery County has enjoyed substantial growth since 2000, increasing approximately 40.4 percent to a population of 412,638. Along with this tremendous population growth, the area’s agriculture industry also is growing. Montgomery County cash receipts for agricultural products in 2008 totaled $108.8 million, with a statewide economic impact of $183.4 million.

As the Montgomery County area continues to grow and prosper, the leadership and vision of organizations like the Conroe Noon Lions Club will become increasingly more important to enriching the community and bettering all of Texas.
