Acting Secretary Lion Eric Grant read the minutes of the May 6th Board of Directors meeting. Lion Treasurer Ed Larson submitted his financial report which stated a bank balance of $12,359.78 with $12,819.78 in the Activity Fund and a deficit balance of $459.95 in the Operating Fund. It was noticed that the line item for meals cost was $8,605.93 and our dues receipts were only $7,375.00. If your dues are in arrears, please have your dues account current before July 1st.

District Governor Elect Lion Pat Snodgrass gave a brief report on the state convention last weekend. He stated that our club was well represented with 6 members attending. There were 300 or more Lions attending the convention in North Little Rock. Next year the state convention will be in Jonesboro and our 3 Jonesboro clubs will be the host clubs for the convention.

Mr. Randy Ferguson, District Conservationist for the Jonesboro field office of Natural Resources Conservation Service, gave the club an interesting talk and video presentation about water conservation and soil erosion.

Next Tuesday we will have with us a home town boy that many of us know that has recently returned from fighting the war in Iraq. Col. Mike Mooday, son of former Lion Gene Mooday and nephew of Lion Leon Lee, will be our speaker and will be talking about the war in Iraq. This would be a good time to invite a guest or prospective member and also those MIAís that have been missing meetings.

The program for May 25 will be Scott Hancock and Bob Schuchardt talking about the Craighead County Community Foundation.

Next Tuesday is election. Donít forget to vote.
