We had four members attending the state convention last week end in Little Rock, Lions Brad Baker, Pat Snodgrass, Charles Hartwig and David Redmon. There were 115 voting delegates attending the convention. Three items voted on were the appointment of district officers before June 1, to re-instate the Mid Winter Conference and the redistricting from 4 sub districts to 2 sub districts. The first two amendments passed and the third amendment was ruled unconstitutional. The redistricting amendment will be presented at the next state meeting.
