Lion Secretary Ken Stallings (#58) was the lucky winner of the Tail Twisterís pot on the first drawing. Most of our members havenít caught up with Daylight savings time, as we only had 18 members in attendance and no guests.

Monday morning, Lion Charles Hartwig suffered a heart attack and was admitted into the hospital for heart surgery. He is out of ICU and in room 2007 at St. Bernards Medical Center. Keep Lion Charles in your prayers for a speedy recovery.

Dr. Connie Meeks, Medical Director for Arkansas Blue Cross-Blue Shield, was our speaker this week talking about Act 1220 or 2003. Act 1220 was passed by the legislature to help improve physical and health of the next generation of Arkansans with the elimination of child obesity. 38% of children in Arkansas Public Schools are overweight. This information was discovered after 440,000 public school students in hundreds of school districts submitted to the collection of height and weight to calculate the BMI (body mass index) of the students.

Next week our program will be Mr. Jason Wilkey, Director of Jonesboro Parks and Recreation.
