At our Tuesday meeting this week, after finding out that Lions Randy Dent (#23) and Bob Draper (#45) were absent, Bill Levins (#39), of "Yammy, yammy, yammy" fame, won the pot.
Attendance was 19 members, two guests, and the speaker.
Our next Flag Day will be 9/11, next Tuesday, September 11th , sometimes called Tower Day. The sign-up sheet used for the recent Labor Day flag day will be used again- please contact Pat Snodgrass know if you want to help out or change your route/assignment.
Norm Dickson introduced the speaker, Lions Past District 7-0 Governor and Arkansas Lions Council Chair Jeff Boone, an insurance agent in both Paragould and Jonesboro, who gave a most informative account of what the new heathcare insurance rules entail for right now.
Programs for the rest of the month are slated to be:
Sept. 11 SVOSH student Savanna Burck from the Southern College of Optometry, who will talk about how her group have used our collected eyeglasses. [SEE below.]
Sept. 18 Business Meeting [and Miss Craighead County Rice 2012]
Sept. 25 Joey Glaub, "Photography Today"
NOTE: Since our speaker next week from the student SVOSH organization in Memphis is willing to take our collected eyeglasses back to Memphis, all members are asked to PLEASE bring in all glasses [empty the boxes] to either the club meeting next Tuesday or to Jim Mashburn's store (Mashburn RV on Stadium Drive), since Jim has a large number of collected glasses already in his store.
