to be 95 years old and was a great Lion.

the Boy Scouts. The Shawnee District covers 5 North Eastern
Arkansas counties of the Quapaw Area Council of Arkansas. Mr.
Lynn talked about the Boy Scout organization and the influence
of scouting in a boy’s life. This is a most worthwhile project
that our club could be involved in. Do we have a volunteer for
a scoutmaster? Our club sponsored a troop in the 60's and
