Lion Jerry Garrett, Lucky #7, won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.

It appeared this week that daylight saving time, with our clocks being advanced one hour, affected our attendance. We had 27 die hard members in attendance.

Lion Bill Hester is home recovering from a colon problem. Remember him in your prayers this week.

Dyeann’s House got some good publicity this week with the Occasions magazine carrying a feature article about our Lions project with PID Scott Rennels being interviewed. Lion Scott advises that we have received confirmation from Lions International that we will receive a $75,000 grant from Lions Club International Foundation for our Dyeann’s House project. Also, we received a $1,000 check from Liberty Bank as a first payment on a five year pledge of $5,000.

On Saturday, April 17th, from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, Dyeann’s House will have an Open House.

Mayor Brodell will make a proclamation with ribbon cutting and unveiling at 10:00 AM, with the closing of Flint Street for two hours. There will be face painting, balloon imaging, tours, fun and fellowship with food and drink. Come see Spuds the Clown, The Lion King and balloon release at 2:00 PM. Every member needs to come and show off our facility. Lionesses we need you to prepare lots of cookies for this event. Drinks will be furnished by Pepsi Cola and Triple F.M. Radio will furnish the hot dogs. Frito-Lay will furnish the chips. Come out for the fun Saturday, April 17th.

Our program this week was given by Phil L. Taylor, Executive Director of Abilities Unlimited. For the past 40 years, Abilities Unlimited has helped people in our community who have physical disabilities to earn a living. The mission of Abilities Unlimited is "to improve the living and working conditions and opportunities for persons with severe disabilities". Phil Taylor has been associated with Abilities Unlimited for the past 32 years. It was started by the Jonesboro Jaycees 40 years ago and our Lions Bobby Wood and D.B. Price had a hand in organizing the project. It has an operating budget of $4.7 million dollars with 37 employees working in Jonesboro, Paragould, and Blytheville.
