     HAMMOND – The FE-Lions, a chapter of the Southeastern Louisiana University Alumni Association, has announced its 2012-13 schedule and recruitment campaign for new members.

     The organization has grown to more than 200 members, said Southeastern Alumni Association Director Kathy Pittman. The FE-Lions host luncheons in conjunction with Lions home football games and sponsor other functions, such as the annual "Champagne Bingo" fundraiser, scheduled for Jan. 26 at Southeastern's Twelve Oaks.

     This month the FE-Lions will host "Salute the Lions, Feed the Team," sponsored by Cypress Pointe Hospital and First Guaranty Bank, on Sept. 24 at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ballroom. FE-Lions bring a dessert to the event and meet all the Southeastern athletes.

     Funds raised by the FE-Lions help support the Southeastern athletic program, including raising money for endowed scholarships and other activities.

     FE-Lions luncheons will be held this year at Trey Yuen, 2100 N. Morrison Blvd. in Hammond. The luncheon schedule and sponsors are as follows: Sept. 19, sponsored by North Oaks Health System; Oct. 10, sponsored by Bra la Vie; Oct. 25, sponsored by Mannino's Pharmacy; Nov. 7, sponsored by P.J.'s Coffee and Dec. 6, sponsored by Hammond Nursing Home.
