Lions Club International recently decided to end its Lioness Club program. The Grand Marais Lioness Club had to decide whether to join the Grand Marais Lions Club, form its own branch of the Lions Club, or create an entirely new group independent of Lions Club International.
 
The decision was made to become an independent club and the former Grand Marais Lioness Club is now WISE, which stands for the Women’s Initiative for Service and Education.
 
WTIP spoke with WISE group president Ann Merson about the group and Merson shared the WISE Mission: Serving needs and encouraging opportunities in Cook County.
 
WISE has offered a contest for a creative and simple logo design. This logo should include an owl, the emblem of Athena, and an appropriate symbol of wisdom.
 
The deadline for the logo contest is coming up soon. WISE asks interested artists to submit logo entries by Wednesday, May 15.
 
Entries can be dropped off at Coldwell Banker with Virginia Palmer or emailed to Merson at annmarie@boreal.org. This contest is open to the public.The designer of the winning logo will receive $100.
 
The winning logo will be selected by the WISE board of directors.
 
WTIP Community Radio wanted to learn more about how this impacts the members of the local Lioness group, so Rhonda Silence spoke with Ann Mershon. Here’s their conversation.
