UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - September 2, 2014
 
Technological advances in American agriculture will help feed a growing world population, Dr Timothy Burcham, dean of agriculture and technology at Arkansas State University told the UH Lions Club Tuesday, Sept. 2.
 
As guest speaker for the meeting, Dr. Bucham also showed a small drone with camera mounted that he said is a tool that can be used to survey fields. FAA approval is needed, however, before widespread use of the small radio-controlled aircraft can become a reality.
 
Besides Burcham, Dr. Stepanie Pulley and Dr. Peter Larbi, also of the ASU Division of Agriculture were present at Tuesday’s meeting. A third visitor, Jerry Casteel, guest of Bill Levins, was also present and assisted with technological issues relating to audio-visual aspects of the meeting.
 
Club President Jim Watkins called the meeting to order at 6:50 a.m at Chef’s In Buffet. Tail Twister was Lion Bill Dickens, who also won the pot drawing when Dr. Pulley drew Number 38, Dickens’ badge number (collusion?). Lion Ron Erwin  was song leader; Lion Tom Woods led the pledge and Lion Curt Hodges the prayer.
 
Announcements included the District 7-0 Convention Sept. 25-26 at Heber Springs (early signup-ends Sept. 10); Flags will be flown Sept. 11 and a Car Show Committee meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 8 at Sudden Link Media (Jim Watkins’ office on Bittle Street).
 
Lion Eric Grant introduced the guest speaker. Adjournment was at 7:35 a.m.
