Mr. Steve Ewart, Director of Jonesboro Economical Transportation System Ė JETS - was our speaker this week.  JETSí Mission Statement is to provide dependable and efficient public transportation for the residents of Jonesboro in a caring and courteous manner while being good stewards of the tax payers dollars.  JETS provide 3 fixed routes of service.  Maps of the 3 bus routes were presented.  Ridership on the combined fixed routes since 2006 has been 274,319 with fares collected in the amount of $122,269.  Steve talked about the public transit foreseeable problems within the next 10 years in Jonesboro.

 

There will be a Car Show Committee meeting on Monday, January 10 at 6:30 PM at Forest Home Church of the Nazarene and an Auction Committee on Tuesday, January 11 at 6:30 PM.  Both of these  meetings are most important for committee members to attend.

 

The Arkansas Lions Mid-Winter Forum will be in Hot Springs on Saturday, February 5.  Please advise Lion Secretary Charles Hartwig if you can attend this meeting.

 

Our next flag day will be Monday, January 17 for birthdays of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and General Robert E. Lee.  Sign up next week for your favorite flag route.

 

Lion Bill Dickens has a few more cases of pecans which he marked down to cost.  This is a real bargain.  Get yours next Tuesday.  This has been a good project and everything we sell now is profit.

 

Our Board of Directors meeting will be Thursday, January 13, at 6:30 AM at Annís.
