Lion Curt Hodges, (#8) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.
Attendance was 19 members plus our guest speaker.
This is the week we have been working up to – 22nd Annual University Heights Lions Jonesboro Auto Show is upon us. Every member needs to be involved with the show over the 3 days – Friday, Saturday, & Sunday. Lion Vern reports we now have 135 cars and trucks, 6 motorcycles and 8 vendors in 11 vendor spaces. We will probably have 10 or more show up late. This promises to be one of our better car shows.
We have also received donations from 16 sponsors in the amount of $13,500. This is pure free money for our show.
Our speaker this week was Tafadzwa Ziyenge, Head Coach for the ASU Women’s Soccer team. Tafadzwa is from Zimbabwe, Africa, coming to play soccer at the University of Alabama, as a student for four years. He played professional soccer in Tennessee for 4 years before coming to ASU. His ASU team has 23 players, 3 of which are international students, 2 from Canada and 1 from Sweden. He would make a good prospective member for our Youth Leo Clubs.
Next Tuesday will be Vicki Crego, Director of the Women’s Crisis Center of NE Arkansas.
