Lion Donnie Kissinger (#9) won the Tail Twister’s pot on the first drawing.
Guests were Jerry Casteel, guest of Lion Bill Levins, Denise McEntire, grandmother of our speaker and Lexie McEntire, 2011 Miss Craighead County Rice.
Lexie is a senior and Honor student at Westside High School and this year’s Miss Craighead County Rice. She also was first runner up in the Miss Arkansas Rice pageant. She talked to the club about the rice production in Arkansas and served us her Lexie’s Bacon Cheeseburger Rice dish, which was very good.
Thanks to all those members who worked the two flag days last week. Let’s continue to collect the past due flag subscriptions and sell new contracts. Check with Lions Pat and Ron as to who needs to pay up. We need the funds by September 30th.
Our White Cane Days last week were real productive with collections of more than $1,600. Lion Ron can pay our bills now and get ready to buy the pecans in November. Thanks to all members who worked White Cane.
Next Tuesday, September 20, is business meeting at Gina’s Place.
Our program for September 27 will be Robbie Johnson and June Morse from NEA Baptist talking about “Hope Week”.
Invite a guest and remember any new members brought in by October 31st will save $45.00 on their entrance fee as we have waived the $45.00 Initiation fee.
