Lion Gary Glisson (#9) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.

Attendance this week was 25 members and 2 guests. Past District Governor and Council Chairman, Lion Jeff Boone, was a guest of the club.

Our 16th annual Jonesboro Auto Show was a huge success with 170 cars and trucks, 12 motorcycles and 8 vendor booths. Chairman Lion Brad Baker estimates our net profit from the show will be approximately $14,000. A BIG LIONS ROAR goes to Lion Brad Baker and the entire Car Show Committee for a job well done. Our general membership also participated real good Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Our speaker this week was Judge David Laser. Judge Laser has been the Circuit Judge for District 9 since 1999. Judge Laser talked about the Craighead County Drug Court he presides over 2 evenings each week. The Drug Court is an intensive rehabilitation program for drug and alcohol law violators and supervised by the court and probation officers.

Next week we will have Mr. Jim Dean representing the Boy Scouts of America. How many Eagle Scouts do we have in our club?

The Nominating Committee for nominating new officers will be meeting soon. Lion Tommy White is chairman and the past presidents will serve on the committee.
