Visalia Host Lion Roar Newsletter for 10-26-21
Lion Tony leads our evening meeting.
Lion Allen making a point.
President Tony led our monthly evening meeting and called on Lion Steve to lead us in the pledge, Lion Bob Line to lead us in singing God Bless America, and Lion Melinda to do the invocation.
No fine badge: Went to Lion Roy.
Lion Tony announced the Trunk or Treat event at Quail Park Shannon Ranch, where our club would sell pumpkins and offer eye screenings on Saturday night, October 29th, from 5:00-8:00. The event went off well, with lots of attendees, and the club selling $340 worth of pumpkins. Lions Lauri, Dennis, Melinda, Brad, Karen, President Tony, and his wife Nancy helped. Lion Bob Line encouraged people to have a pumpkin painted, and their children’s eyes screened at the eye screening tent, where Lions Allen, Roy, and Rick screened about 45 kids.
Lion Melinda was $20 happy we were still doing our evening meetings, giving her a chance to attend. She was also happy that she had spent a week visiting former Host Lions members Ed and Carol Jones who had moved to Texas. They both said hi to all the club members. They have joined a Lions Club in Texas, and things are going well. $10 of the twenty was for not bringing anything back from her trip.
Lion Roy was happy he could ride his motorcycle to work today as he had had to drive his car for a couple of weeks.
The only fines today were because of people not wearing their badges: Lion Bob Line, Lion Steve, and Lion president Tony.
