UNIVERSITY HEIGHTS LIONS CLUB

Tuesday - November 2, 2010

Attendance:  17 members plus 1 guest, Eric Hanes (Ron McCormick, sponsor) and our speaker.

Lion Ron McCormick (#48) won the tail twister’s pot while tail twister Lion Bill Dickens fined the den (with no announced reason, in fact).

The club was privileged to add another new member with president Brad Baker presiding over the installation of Donnie Kessinger (Ron McCormick, sponsor).  New Lion Donnie then provided the club with a brief personal resume’.

This week’s program chairman, Lion Charles Hartwig introduced our speaker,  Nancy Mathews, who serves as the Newsletter writer and Webmaster for the Craighead County Genealogical Society .   The society meets on the third Sunday in the Craighead County Public Library at 2:00 p.m.  with nonmembers also being welcome.  The society specializes in this county’s records but will advise members and others about genealogical studies in general.  Ms. Mathews remarked that for distant relatives, the chances of finding useful information is considerably greater if the person has led a rather “colorful” and newsworthy life.  Since grave markers can be a valuable source of information, the society has photographed the tombstones in many of the county’s cemeteries in case any of the markers are damaged through acts of nature or vandalism.  Also, for $25.00 , Ms. Mathews offers a beginner’s class which includes helpful printed material.

Club president Brad reminded members that today is a flag route day as is November 11 for putting out and November 13 for picking up.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:29 a.m.
