Lions Dr. Joe George (47) and Ken Helman (61) were absent and Lion Ed Larson (46) won the Tail Twister’s pot.

Guests this week were Mr. Phillip Jones, a guest of Lion Bobby Wood and Mr. K Rex Mayfield, a guest of Lion Bill Levins, with a check and membership application in hand. Congratulations Lion Bill for sponsoring our new member. Lion Bill is working on his Advancement Key by sponsoring 6 members into Lionism. Last week he was awarded the Membership Key for sponsoring 2 new members & this week he gave that key to his sponsoring Lion, Lion Bill Hester.

We should have as a membership goal this next year of having every member be a Key Member. There are 15 members of our club who have not sponsored a single member. Remember the key to a successful Lions Club is members and membership into a Lions Club is by invitation only. Our attendance this week was 20 members plus 3 guests.

White Cane Days are next week, May 12 and 13. If you have not signed up to work White Cane please do so next Tuesday. Lion Gary Glisson needs your help and the club needs funds to buy glasses.

This week there will be eight or nine club members attending the State Convention in North Little Rock. Our club will be presenting checks to the state supported projects in the amount of $10,250 to the following recipients:

Lions World Services for the Blind $4,500

Mid South Lions Sight and Hearing Services $4,500

Lions UAMS Eye Bank $ 500

Leader Dog for the Blind $ 750

With this plus the local sight work and the Blind Camp, our club is helping the blind and hearing impaired in excess of $22,000 this year. This is what we are all about. Tell the Lions story to a prospective member. He or she may just want to be a part of something so wonderful!!!!

All old & new board members should attend the important Board of Directors meeting May, 12 @ 6:30 @ Couch’s. Open to all members.

Dr. Marty Shull was our speaker this week, speaking for the Downtown Jonesboro Association. The Downtown Jonesboro Association has been in existence since 1999 and was reorganized last year with a five year plan to revitalize Downtown Jonesboro. Their slogan is "have you been downtown lately?" You can join the Downtown Jonesboro Association for as little as $25.00. Send your contribution for membership to Downtown Jonesboro Association, 407 Union St., Jonesboro, AR 72401.

Invite a guest to next week’s exciting program given by Mr. Paul Copeland, Director of Community & Economic Development, with MPO Transit System.
