Lion Pat Snodgrass (#31) and Lion David Redmon (#34) won the Tail Twister’s pot. We had no visitors and our attendance was 21 members present.
Lion Ron Erwin read the minutes of the February 25th Board of Directors meeting and Lion Vern Drake gave the financial report. Our bank balance as of January 31st was $13,703.90, with $5,593.00 in the Operating Fund, and $8,110.90 in the Activity Fund.
New officers for 2007-08 are to be elected on April 10. Lion Bill Levins is the Nominating Committee Chairman with past presidents serving on the committee. Advise Lion Bill if you wish to serve your club as an officer next year. New officers need to be elected before the State Convention on April 13-14.
Incoming District Governor Norine Westerbeck has asked our club to host the District 7-0 Convention on a Saturday in October. Exact date to be determined later. We need a volunteer to chair the convention.
Lion Brad Baker gave us a good rundown of what our club needs to do to promote the car show which is only 4 weeks away. Lion Brad stated our goal for the car show is to raise $15,000. What will $15,000 do to help people in our community? It will purchase 150 pairs of glasses, give surgery to 15 people at Mid South, provide independence for 5 blind people through LWSB or gives sight to 10 people through corneal transplants through the Arkansas Lions Eye Bank.
It takes 370 Lion Hours to put on the car show. With only 40 members in our club, it takes about 10 hours for each member to get the job done. Every member can solicit at least 1 sponsor and vendor, buy and sell tickets, work the three days on the show setting up and taking up tickets. Remember our goal and Lions Motto is to SERVE.
Lion Ron Erwin has set the dates of our White Cane Days for April 12 & 13 and June 28 & 29.
Some of our members have been concerned about our former Lion Dan Hoyt. Lion Scott Rennels talked to Sarah Hoyt last week and she advised that Dan is in serious condition with cancer of the pancreas and is in a rehabilitation hospital in Palm Bay, FL. His address is 660 Montana Ave. S.E., Palm Bay, FL 32909-4309. His phone number is 321 724-6010. They would appreciate a call or card from friends in Jonesboro. Dan was a great member of our club.
