Tuesday - September 1, 2009

 

Lion President Randy Dent presided over the meeting.

 

Lions Tony tail twisted, Don sang, Charles pledged and Larry prayed.

 

Lion Randy Dent  (#23) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.

 

Attendance was 18 members plus 1 guest.  Charles Metzler came to hear the program.

 

The club again wishes a speedy recovery to Lions Jim Mashburn and Al.

 

Our program was presented by Philip Steed the manager of the Jonesboro Municipal Airport.  He updated the club on the upcoming commercial service which should start in October and upgrade projects at the airport.  Jonesboro, Harrison and El Dorado airports receive subsidies for air service.  Over 100 private planes use the airport.  Curt Hodges is the program chair for September.  For more information, see his article in the Jonesboro Sun.

 

White Cane Days will be September 17 & 18 at the Wal Mart Store on Highland.  Lion Don Vineyard is White Cane Chairman.  The sign up sheet will be passed around again next Tuesday.  It sure makes the hour and a half go by faster if there are two Lions at each entrance.

 

Remember flag routes for Labor Day on September 7.  Current rain chances are 50%, so keep an eye on the weather.

 

There was talk about putting out flags on Sept. 11.  A sign up sheet will be available next week.

 

The club received a Thank You note for our contributions in memory of Lion Marcy.

 

Lion Brad still needs help with the USA/Canada forum in Memphis.  Contact Brad if you can help.

 

One of our members is a little worried.  He sent his wife to the hardware store and she came back with a faucet.
