Advise Lion Bill if you wish to serve your club

District Governor Norine Westerbeck has asked
our club to host the District 7-0 Convention on
a Saturday in October. Exact date to be

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.
