New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - September 5, 1997, New Braunfels, Texas HeraldZeltung a O 9A McQueeney Lions Club activities benefit community I WCfltV Chfirter HlfirnnCrS WPfP M tfi i Twenty charter members were present on Feb 27 1971 when the McQueeney Lions Club was established Community service activities were accomplished as fast as money could be raised Some of the first activities provided to the community included a sidewalk under the railroad bridge for the safety of school children a sign in front of the McQueeney Elementary School school supplies and milk for the children who needed it Christmas lights and decorations for downtown McQueeney and street lights for the downtown area On Feb 14 1974 the club initiated weekly bingo games every Thursday night at For 22 years and continuing today this activity has Challenged athletes compete in triathlon When the swim wave for the relay division of the resurrected 1997 Texas Hill Country Triathlon charges into the water of Canyon Lake on Sept 6 few on shore will notice two of the teams vying to place in the relay category But the teams demonstrating a rather new adaptation of relay triathlon competition will be composed of some pretty non traditional athletes two amputees one as a swimmer and another as a cyclist The swimmer Bonnie Brawner age 34 of Seguin and cyclist Mike Marsh age 35 of San Antonio will each race on separate teams organized by Warm Springs Wheelchair Sports which was first organized such Mixed Ability teams as part of a new relay category in the 1997 Advantage Texas Triathlon near Boeme on July 13 The Mixed Ability relay team concept required that all teams in the category field a minimum of one team member with a mobility impairment But because neither Brawner nor Marsh require special or adapted equipment their two respective teams will be competing in the relay men and women on same division against all other ablebodied relays There is a definite time advantages for athletes who use wheelchair roadracing equipment versus your basic says Warm Springs Rehabilitation System Public Relations Director Janelle Fischer also competing as a runner on one of the relay teams At the Advantage RentACar triathlon we had enough teams and athletes using adapted equipment wheelchair roadracers and handcrank cycles to field an entire relay category which also awarded three places Brawner most recently competed on Mixed Ability relay in Advantage Texas Triathlon in July 1997 her first triathlon She formerly worked as residence life director at Incarnate Word University Brawner was injured a year and a half ago in rollover accident in Florida A close friend driver of the vehicle at the time died upon impact Brawner received extensive injuries causing amputation of her leg above the knee and now uses prosthesis for walking and a wheelchair for greater distances provided the club a consistent source of income to help the blind serve ithe community and contribute to the Lions Club in Kerrville for disabled children About 255 people play Bingo have food from the snack bar and a lot of fun every week Many do not realize that the proceeds from their night out are put to such good use Today the club consists of 41 hardworking dedicated members J Anne Conway who are persistent in their efforts to serve through the Adopt a School program the McQueeney Elementary school enjoys the support of the local Lions Every year in scholarship money is provided to enable students to pursue their education Area nursing homes delight in a Day on the River annually hosted by the Lions Seniors who are able to attend are taken to Lake McQueeney Pavilion where they have hamburgers and hot dogs go fishing and play games And the club still foots the bill for the street lights in downtown McQueeney These are just a few of the ways the McQueeney Lions Club has chosen to be of service Some 24 years ago the club donated to the volunteer fire department to purchase its first fire truck and every year the parking lot at the club is the gathering place for the annual Firemans Barbecue All proceeds go to the volunteer fire department to assist in their efforts to protect the citizens of McQueeney and the surrounding area The way the club hall was built is an indication of the commitment and determination of its members In 1980 members raised enough money to have a building on a concrete slab constructed by a local contractor The interior of the building and all improvements were completed entirely by the Lions Club members Labor for tne plumbing electrical and installation of heating and airconditioning was all completed at no cost to the club The building currently houses the big hall and snack bar area for Bingo and other activities a meeting room and office It is also the only local Lions Club Hall that is available for public use It may be rented and is an excellent facility for wedding receptions family reunions and other large gatherings It is also used for county elections It was my pleasure to meet with Art Creager of McQueeney who is serving as secretary to the McQueeney Lions Club and leam of the clubs history and service I would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the citizens of McQueeney to say thank you to an outstanding group of volunteers who really have made a difference If you would like more

estrogen replacement therapy Estrogen replacement therapy ERT is being studied in more than women who have survived cancer of the uterus Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston are among the more than 40 centers participating in the National Cancer Institute study of ERT in endometrialcancer survivors This is the first large national study evaluating whether ERT is safe in women who have had endometrial cancer or if estrogen will make them more likely to develop cancer again The most common gynecologic cancer and the fourth most common among women endometrial cancer kills about women each year Because many of the tumors that arise from the uterus are estrogen dependent the concern has been that ERT could increase the risk of cancer recurring although there is no data to support this said Dr Alan Kaplan principal investigator for the study at Baylor and a professor of obstetrics and gynecology ERT is often prescribed for healthy women to compensate for estrogen loss during menopause because estrogen lowers the risk of osteoporosis and heart disease Tk Quift Batu Fall Classes Classes for all level Quilters And More 1 Holiday Quilts Basis Hand Machine First Quilt
