Lion Bill Levins
(#39) was the winner of the Tail Twister’s pot
on the first drawing.
Attendance was 19 members plus 4 guests. Dustin
White, son of Lion Tommy White and Ronnie Lane
were guests of Lion Robert Bahn.
Our program was brought by Darrell King and Paul
Betts with NEA Baptist Health System. They
talked about the new medical campus being built
by NEA Baptist Memorial Hospital and NEA Baptist
Clinic. The $400 million investment will be the
largest investment for health care in Arkansas.
Building size is 765,703 sq. feet and will have
181 hospital beds. At the present time, the
contractors are drilling 2,400 foundation
pilings. Completion date for the facility is
estimated to be June/July 2013.
Thanks for the excellent programs during the
month of April by Lion Ron Ervin. Lion Curt
Hodges will be our program chairman for May.
