Lion Joel Gambill (#17) won the Tail
Twisterís pot on the first drawing. Guests this week were Mr. Gary
Edwards, guest of Ken Helman, Skipper Smith & Lloyd Walker, guests of
Lion Mark Poe, and Mr. Greg Chance with KASU. Our attendance was 33
members plus 5 guests.
Skipper Smith and Lloyd Walker
presented a check in the amount of $435 to our
Dyeannís House from the
Crusaderís Sunday School Class of the First United Methodist Church.
This gift in addition to the $815 contribution made earlier is half of
the Ruby Angel pledge of $2,500 which the class has made to
Dyeannís House. Dyeann and
Mark were both members of the Crusaders Sunday School Class.
Remember, Monday is a flag day for
the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. This is also a good time to sell
new flag contracts for 2004. We charge the merchant or business $35 per
year and guarantee to display the flag 10 times or more per year.
Lion Secretary Brad Carson read the
minutes of the Board of Directors meeting held on January 9th
and Lion Treasurer Ed Larson presented the financial report which showed
a bank balance of $6,039.48 with $4,053.33 in the Activity Fund and
$1,986.15 in the Operating Fund.

Our program this week was brought by
