Lion Ron Erwin (#24) was absent and Lion Bill Levins (#39) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the second drawing.

Our only guest was Cub Payton Glisson, son of Lion Gary Glisson. Our attendance was 26 members plus 2 visitors. It was good to see Lion Jim McAlister and Lion Dr. Cade Wilson back in our den.

White Cane Chairman Lion Gary Glisson advises that he has cleared with the Highland Drive Wal-Mart Store to have our next White Cane Day on Thursday and Friday, May 12 & 13. Put these dates on your calendar to work White Cane.

Thanks to Lion Tommy White for the excellent programs during the month of March. Lions Bill Hester and Ron Erwin will be our program chairmen for April.

The Past District Governor, who helped organize our club in 1963, died this week. He was Past District Governor (then known as International Councilor), Jess L Cox, from Wynne. He was District Governor in 1963-64 and a Progressive Melvin Jones Fellow (2 diamonds). Jess lived to be 95 years old and was a great Lion.

Lion Tommy White is the Nominating Committee chairman and will be in contact with members nominated to serve on our club Board of Directors. Please serve if called upon. The Board of Directors is made up of the club President, 3 Vice Presidents, Secretary, Treasurer, Lion Tamers, Tail Twisters, Directors and Membership Chairman.

Our program this week was given by Mr. Jacob Lynn, Executive Director of the Shawnee District of 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 70's.
