If you are planning to attend the

Helman or Lion Vern Drake for your reservation. The cost of the meal
and show is $18.35 per person. The club will have to pay in advance
for the meals.
Lion Bill Dickens says we have
plenty of pecans to sell and we need to spread the Christmas spirit by
giving pecans to our friends. The decanters make great gifts.
Our program this week was given by
Mr. Bruce Burrow, developer of our new Mall at Turtle Creek. He and
his assistant, Christy Gibson, had a video presentation of the new
mall, which is a total of $100 million investment with 750,000 sq.
feet of retail space. It is predicted that the mall will have a total
of 1,500 jobs and have a net of 900 new jobs. Projected sales of $225
million annually is expected from the retail businesses in the mall.
The target date for the JC Penney store opening is September 2005,
with the rest of the mall opening in the spring of 2006.
Next Tuesday our program will be
Kristine Blondidillo with the new ASU Bioscience Center.
