UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - January 25, 2011

Lion Cade Wilson (#27) was absent and Lion Vern Drake (#13) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the second drawing.  Our attendance was 19 members plus our speaker.

 

Last Call for the Mid Winter Forum in Hot Springs.  Advise Lion Secretary Charles if you plan to attend, February 4th and 5th.

 

Mid South Lions Sight and Hearing will have a business meeting in Hot Springs on March 11 and 12.  They will also have a Mid South feature horse race at Oakland Park Saturday, March 12.

 

There will be a Lions Leadership Weekend in Memphis for Mid South on April 8-9, 2011.

 

Our Car Show dates are March 26 & 27, with move in date, March 25.  Committee assignments were made last Tuesday.  It’s not too early to start getting sponsors, goody bag stuffers and door prizes.  Lion Vern Drake advised he has received 2 car entries this week.

 

The next flag day we have is February 21 for Presidents Day.  Sometime after that date, we need to have a work date to take the dirty and soiled flags to Magic Touch to be cleaned.  Lion Pat will let us know when we should do this.

 

Our speaker this week was Jonesboro Fire Chief Leonard Jadrich.  Chief Jadrich talked about the operations of the Fire Department and how the recent city sales tax increase has helped retaining the 112 firemen employed with 7 fire stations within the city limits of Jonesboro.  Also our city has maintained a ISO insurance rating of 3 which helps with business insurance rates.  Jonesboro has an excellent fire department.  With the placements of the 7 fire stations, a fire truck response can get to a fire usually within 6 minutes, from the time reported with 911.

 

Lion Tony Bari is our program chairman for the month of February.  Lion Tony has lined up the following speakers for February:

            February   1     District Judge – Keith Blackman

            February   8     Kristi Pulliam – Development  Director, Foundation of Arts

            February  15    Business meeting

            February  22    Ed Way – New Highway – Cash

The Board of Directors will meet Thursday, 6:30 AM February 10 at Ann’s.

 

We have some good programs scheduled.  Invite a visitor and prospective member.
