UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - February 11, 2014

Lion Jim Mashburn finally returned to the den, with the help of his wife Helen, who drove him to the meeting Tuesday, Feb. 11 in 14-degree weather.

Jim looked good and sounded good. Was good to have him back.

The meeting, at Chef's In Buffet, 105 Burke, was called to order at 6:45 a.m. by President Robert Bahn and Tail Twister Lion Brad Baker took over with a series of jokes (!) followed by the "pot drawing," which was won by Lion Tony Bari (number-10). Baker led the song, America, Lion Ron McCormick the pledge and Lion Ron Erwin the prayer.

Guest speaker Sherry Pearce explained the workings of the Arkansas Care Transitions East Coalition, which covers 11 Northeast Arkansas Counties. A goal of the coalition is to reduce the re-admission of Medicare patients by hospitals, which can result in penalties charged to the medical centers, and to improve patient and caregiver satisfaction. Another goal is to be able to reduce re-admission penalties charged to hospitals.
