Our “Intrepid Song Leader” (#18) was absent and Lion Ron McCormick (#48) won the Tail Twister’s pot.
Attendance was 14 members plus 2 guests. Our program speaker, Christina Ryan and Clinton Kissinger (Lion Donnie Kissinger’s son), were guests. Also, Lion Norman Dickson was present. Norman’s e-mail address was reported wrong in last week’s newsletter. His correct email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our program speaker this week was Christina Ryan, Executive Director for HMG. Christina talked about the medical services HMG gives to the public through St. Bernard’s Medical Center and the 190 doctors who are committed to providing the highest quality healthcare in 55 clinics and St. Bernards located in Northeast Arkansas. HMG stands for Healthcare Medical Group.
