Tuesday - June 25, 2013

At our weekly Tuesday morning meeting this week, in his final outing as a
Tail Twister, Robert Bahn picked his own number (# 7, or as he likes to call
it: 007) out of the numbers jar held by fellow Tail
Twister Bill Dickens. Robert then asked that the pot be rolled over to the
Fines pot-a noble gesture, until one realizes that the Tail Twisters were
29% behind in their expected Fines income for the year, as of May 31st, and that this was their last chance to get that
percentage higher.
Attendance was 16 members and one guest - Hans Hacker, a guest of Charles
Hartwig, who not only survived the 350 mile+ BAD bike ride over the Memorial
Day weekend to help raise funds for the Jonesboro police DARE program, but
also has a membership application form which he intends to complete!
1.    The White Cane Days efforts the previous Thursday and Friday at
Wal-Mart netted $1096.  All who worked shifts were thanked.  However, the
previously-scheduled next White Cane session in early July was postponed
until later in the year.
2.    Sight Committee Chair Bill Levins announced that the committee will be
meeting this week, to make some concrete plans about our new SPOT vision
screening device and how to get it into action by August.
3.     Since the Chef's In restaurant will be closed for the first two weeks
in July, we will be conducting our July 2nd and 9th weekly meetings in the
newly relocated Fat City Grill on E. Johnson Ave. We will order from their
menu, AND if anyone runs up a bill over $7, they should give Treasurer Ron
Erwin that amount in cash before leaving the building. (Or face the wrath of
the new crew of Lion Tamers.)
4.    A Flag Day sign-up sheet for flags to be put out on the 4th of July
[Thursday [July 4th] was passed around.  Several flag routes are still
uncovered-please sign up for one next Tuesday, or contact Lion Pat
5.    100% Attendance Pins for 2012-13 were passed out to Lions who had
requested them - and were present.
Monthly Business Meeting:
     Secretary Charles Hartwig read the draft Minutes of the June 13th Board
meeting, and Treasurer Ron Erwin went over the monthly Financial Report, as
of May 31st.
     When it was noted that was a "Special Contributions" line item in the
Activity Fund expenditures which was still untapped, the members moved into
a de facto special called Board meeting, and voted to
ask the Treasurer to write checks to the following:  Salvation Army $500;
NE Arkansas Food Bank 250; American Legion [for Boys and Girls State] $175.
(Motion Robert Bahn; 2nd Pat Snodgrass)
Program Committee report:
    Thanks go to Tony Bari for not only setting up the Awards/Installation
banquet (with major help from his wife Charlene), but also for providing the
speakers in June.  Charles Hartwig is the July program chair.  The program
for next week, July 2nd will be presented by Steve Ewart, head of the JETS
public bus system in Jonesboro.
