Tuesday - May 21, 2013

At our weekly Tuesday morning meeting today, Eric Grant (#14) won the Tail
Twisters pot on the first drawing.
Attendance was 17 members and one "guest"-- Thomas Benedict, whose transfer
membership from the Russellville Lions Club had been approved by the Board
last week, to take effect as soon as we have received official notice from
the (no doubt sad) Lions in Russellville that their Board had OKed him to
transfer in good standing.  (Tom thus gets another free breakfast from us,
but since he indicated an interest in serving on the Sight, Car Show, and TV
Auction committees, if any of those should meet, be sure to include Tom in
the group.)
1.    Golf Team Captain Vern Drake informed the group that our heroic golf
team, in its first outing yesterday at the Mid-South tournament in north
Memphis, came up with a most credible four-under-par score, but that was not
enough to win the tourney.  They battled humidity and swarms of black bugs
in addition to other teams, but still had a good time and represented our
club well, and all for a great cause.  (Vern is going to try and recover
from all the stress of this competition by taking off on a cruise in the
Baltic Sea.)
2.    Sight Committee member and current keeper of our new SPOT vision
screening device Bryan Ulmer advised members that if anyone wished to read
up on the device prior to our getting the formal training from the
manufacturer, they should contact him.
3.    Tony Bari announced that our annual Awards and Installation Banquet
will be held on Tuesday evening, June 18th, in the newly relocated Fat City
restaurant on E. Johnson Ave.  More details, and a sign-up list will be
forthcoming, but mark that date on your calendars.
4.    A Flag Day sign-up sheet for flags to be put out on Memorial Day next
Monday [May 27th].  SEVERAL flag routes are still uncovered-please contact
Lion Pat Snodgrass if you can take one or two.
5.    Ball cap order?  Secretary Charles Hartwig passed around a sign-up
sheet for members wishing to order new caps with the club logo.  The special
offer for free logos will expire at the end of the month, AND with at least
12 orders needed (at $13 each), and all of the same color.  Nine cap orders
were received, and reflecting the wonderful diversity of our club, there is
a three-way tie for the preferred color.  (The ONLY thing agreed on was that
no one wants a white cap.)  To be continued at the last May meeting next
Monthly Business Meeting:
     Secretary Charles Hartwig read the draft Minutes of the May 16th Board
meeting, and Treasurer Ron Erwin went over the monthly Financial Report, as
of April 30th.
