UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - March 24, 2015
 
President Jim Watkins opened the weekly meeting at 6:45 am, which featured
17 Lions in attendance [it was Spring Break for the schools], plus the
speaker.
 
In a "most appropriate" event (according to your scribe), the speaker picked
on the second drawing for the Tail Twisters pot #51, the badge number of
Charles Hartwig, who had invited the speaker to the meeting.  (Number 41 had
been drawn first, but Charles Reeves was sadly absent.)
 
Announcements:
 
- Car Show.   Committee Chair Ron McCormick reminded members that our 26th
annual Car Show was coming up THIS COMING WEEKEND, March 28th and 29th, and
passed around a sign-up sheet for work schedules.  [Any member who was not
present is urged to help out, even if he/she had not signed up for a
specific slot;  the schedule will be emailed to members shortly.]  He said
that it is still not too late to get new vehicles and/or sponsors, and noted
that EVERY member needs to help out at the event, as this is our largest
fund-raising event of the year.
 
--Cabinet Meeting.  A report was given about on the Lions District 7-0
Cabinet meeting in Jonesboro the previous Saturday, March 21st.  8 of the 15
members present at the meeting were UH Lions; Lion Brad Baker was the key
contact host member for the meeting, and the new District 7-0 disaster
preparedness ALERT trailer was there thanks to Lions Pat Snodgrass and Bill
Levins.
 
Program:
 
  March Program Chair Charles Hartwig introduced the speaker, LTC Lee Clark,
head of the  Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) program at ASU
here in Jonesboro.  Col. Clark, who plans to retire from the Army in July
but stay in Jonesboro after a very distinguished military career, pointed
out that the ASU program, one at 38 host universities nation-wide, has
graduated 176 US Army officers since 2000, works with several other colleges
and Junior ROTC high school programs in Arkansas, and has several unique
features which make it one of the leading ROTC programs in the country -
such as being the only non-military college in the country with its own
separate dorm for ROTC cadets.
