Lion Jerry Garrett’s lucky #7 won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.

Attendance this week was 24 members plus 1 guest. Robbie Redmon was a guest of uncle, Lion Dave Redmon.

Welcome to our newest member, Lion John McKeel sponsored by Lion Jim Mashburn was duly installed by District Governor Lion Pat Snodgrass. Lion John is the Branch Sales Manager of the Union Planters Bank on Caraway Road. His e-mail address is or cell phone number is (870)930-6955.

This was our monthly business meeting with the Secretary reading the minutes of the January 13 Board of Directors meeting and the Treasurer giving the club financial report. Our bank balance on December 31 was $7,634.68 with $1,090.32 in the Operating Fund and $6,545.36 in the Activity Fund. Each week our meal cost is $189.00 as we have to guarantee Western Sizzlin 35 meals @ $5.40. We need additional members to satisfy the meal costs of our club. The present club membership is 42 members of which 4 are members at large.

Thanks to Lamar Advertising and Lions Jerry Garrett and Bill Levins we now have a nice billboard sign on Nettleton Ave and Raines Street.

Lion Tommy White is now taking ads for the Car Show program. The ads sell for $50.00 to $175.00. Also we are seeking sponsors for the Car Show. Sponsorships are $1,000 or $500 with each sponsor receiving several valued items and recognitions form the club. Deadline to receive all media advertising is February 15 and to receive print advertising is March 7. This is extra money for our car show that is badly needed to make our show successful.

The sign up sheet for White Cane will be going around next Tuesday. White Cane Day is Friday and Saturday, February 4 & 5. We need every member working White Cane on those days. Lion Gary Glisson is White Cane chairman, our goal is $1,500.00.

Mrs. Yvonne Clark will be our speaker next week, She is the volunteer Services Coordinator for the NEA Medical Center. She is the activity advisor of senior care programs.

We still have some pecan decanters to sell at a bargain price of $15.00 and a few bags of chocolate covered at $5.00.

The club is collecting discarded cell phones, print cartridges and toner to sell. Lions Ed Larson and Charles Hartwig are handling this project.
