Tomball Lions Club Treasurer Al Gerhardt and wife Eva stopped by for a private tour of the museum on the way to the Texas Lions Camp. Pictured above is the Texas Lion Camp State Office in Kerrville, Texas.
Al & Eva were greeted by Sandra Merritt, State Administrator and given the grand tour including seeing some of the items that have already been donated.
PDG Eddie Risha has given an interesting presentation to many lions clubs on the history behind and current status of the Texas Lions Museum and Office located in Kerrville, TX.  The museum has been a 50+ year dream of the Texas Lions to preserve records and maintain the history of the Lions of Texas.  An existing building was purchased in 2014 for $350,000 on Legion Drive in Kerrville and is currently being remodeled to accommodate the museum and state office.  Plans are to have a July 2019 grand opening.
A museum curator has been hired and Lions artifacts and items of historical significance are being collected and cataloged.  Various Lions Clubs have donated materials and labor for the remodeling project.  The total funding needed to complete the build out is $120,000.
