Lion Bryan Ulmer (#56) won the Tail Twisterís pot on the first drawing. Guests were Dr. Carl Ekstrum, ASU Political Science Department, guest of Lion Charles Hartwig and David Watkins, father of our speaker. It was also good to see former Lion Ed Foster back in our den. He has turned in his application for reinstatement. Our attendance was 25 members and four guests. District Governor Pat Snodgrass installed our newest member into the club, Lion Chris Hall, sponsored by Lion Tommy White.

Our speaker this week was Miss Breana Watkins, our 2004 Miss Craighead County Rice. Breana is the daughter of David and Kim Watkins and is a junior at Westside High School. She distributed her "Breís Vegetable Dip" recipe together with a 4 oz package of Riceland Enriched

Rice. Her talk was about the rice industry and nutrition facts for a well balanced diet of rice.

This being our regular monthly business meeting, acting secretary Lion Charles Hartwig read the minutes of the September 9 Board of Directors meeting and Lion Vern Drake gave the financial report to the club. As of August 31, our bank balance was $7,325.17 with $1,131.36 in the Operating Fund and $6,193.81 in the Activity Fund. It was noted that our dues account is in better shape than last month as several members who were in arrears have now paid their dues account.

Next week is our White Cane day project. Lion Gary Glisson is pleading for additional workers. He stated that for each time slot that is not covered, the club will lose approximately $50.00. Any member who can work additional times will be greatly appreciated. Our budget for White Cane is $4,000 for 2 campaigns (one in September and one in the spring). Letís all pick a time to work next Thursday or Friday or both and have a successful White Cane Day. All this money goes into our sight fund to buy glasses. Another project coming up soon is our annual Peace Poster Project and Lions Charles Hartwig and Janine Helman are working with the elementary schools on this.

Lion Brad Baker reminds us that our annual Lions Club Auction is only 6 weeks away. This is a joint effort with our two Jonesboro sister clubs and is always a fun event. It is not too early to sign up sponsors at $100 each and get those items to be auctioned. Next Tuesday Lion Brad will have suggestion sheets listing items and businesses to solicit for the auction.

The District 7-0 Convention will be Friday and Saturday, September 24-25. The main business meeting will be Saturday, starting at 8:30 AM at the St. Bernardís Auditorium. District Governor Pat needs a good delegation from our club. The hospitality suite will be at the Holiday Inn Express, Friday evening.
