UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - August 6, 2013

The meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 6 of the University Heights Lions Club was
held at the Chef's In Buffet.
 
Before Lion President Robert Bahn called the meeting to order, Tail
Twister Brad Baker opened the meeting with a few jokes and announcements and
the "pot drawing." The pot was won by Lion Bill Dickens after badge numbers
24 [Ron Erwin] and 9 [Donnie Kissinger], both of whom were absent, were
drawn.
 
The song, America the Beautiful, was led by Tommy White; pledge by Curt
Hodges; and prayer by Larry Hinck.
 
Lion Jim Mashburn is out of the hospital and has gone back to work.
 
Program:
 
Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd talked about his job as Sheriff of
Craighead County.  Boyd, who has more than 22 years in law enforcement, all
of it with the Sheriff's Department, is in his first term as sheriff. He
talked about all of the services provided by the department, including
policing the county, operating the detention center (jail) and the "hidden"
services such as serving of legal and court papers. The department has 121
employees, including 29 deputies, a number that Boyd wants to see increased
to better serve the county. It also has an annual budget of more than $7
million. Currently there are 328 inmates housed in the jail (as of Monday,
Aug. 5).
 
Our other scheduled programs for August, lined up by Lion Jim Watkins, are
listed below (invite a guest!).
 
Aug. 13 - Amber Horton, American Cancer Society (recruiting volunteers for
