Notes for November 6th Meeting

 

Program
.
Our program was presented by Deann Saldana from Habitat for Humanity.  This was one of most unique meetings because she presented from a job site location in Hanford.  We got a tour of a house under construction. That is one advantage to Zoom.  We learned about all the work they are doing to help provide affordable housing in Tulare and Kings County.
.
Happy Bucks
.
Lion Karen McVaigh was very happy with her son’s wedding pictures, which were taken by Lion Roy Dressel.
Lion Brent Robinson was happy with his professional picture that Lion Roy took.
Lion Tom Link was happy about Fresno State Football and about winning his reelection to the Tulare County School Board.
President Craig is going to see his daughter this weekend!
Lion Allen Ventling was just very happy.
.
Fines
.
Lion Tom Link was fined for being late again.
President Craig , Lion Roy Dressel and others were fined for not wearing their badge as required. 

 The Club received a Thank You letter from CSET for our donations in January of 2020, which allowed them to make crucial improvements to their Meals on Wheels Program.

 Program

Our program was presented by Nicola Wissler.  Some of you may know her from the Workforce Investment Board but today she was sharing a new community resources sponsored by her church, Just Serve.  This is a way for us to find, advertise, or volunteer for community service projects.  It is local and national and we, as in the Lions Club, can list our service projects and perhaps attract individuals that may be willing to help out.  I think it could be a way to recruit service oriented people as members.  We will talk more about it at our next board meeting.

Notes from October 16th Zoom Meeting

In Memory of Lion Don Landers 

All, as you know, we lost Lion Don Landers this week.   Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.  At our meeting in addition to all of our other business, we began with a tribute to Lion Don.   
Lion Don Landers joined Visalia Host Lions on September 8, 1990 and was club president in 1995-96.   We will have a short memory on our Facebook page thanks to Lion Laurie.   Don was very active in the community and served on Visalia City Council for fourteen years. 
We will miss him.

 

Program

We had a wonderful Visalia Host Lions’ program this last Friday, October 16, 2020.   Our program guests were Albert Cendajas and Rachel Gomez from CSET.  They described CSET’s Senior and Homeless Services.  Last year our club donated to this program and they were able to wrap their vans and we have our club logo on their Vans.

Notes from September 25th Lions Club Meeting.

Friday’s Meeting – September 25, 2020 Held on Zoom
Friday’s Zoom meeting was attending by more than a dozen Lions and guest.  A good time was had by all and it was very informative.  
Program
Kaweah Delta provided our program with Deborah Volosin, Director of Community Engagement, introducing the Chief Nursing officer, Keri Noeske.  Keri gave us a detailed overview of the hospital’s response to COVID and answered several questions regarding the spread of COVID in Tulare County.  It was interesting and informative.  We hope to have Keri join us again in a couple of months for another update.
Happy Bucks
Lion Roy Dressel was $10 happy that he was not injured during his fire experience at his studio.   Smoke came up from down stairs and he was rescued by our brave fireman!  Not an experience one wants to have but it all turned out well.
Lion Steve Gerrard was $5 happy that his granddaughter was coming home
Lion Brent Robinson was $5 happy because it was Friday (I guess this was in honor of Happy Friday Ruth)
Lion Brad Board $5 happy he has no claims, so far, from the local fires
Lion Bob Bricker $5 happy that he is now a great grandpa!   or was it great great?   
I am sure there were others who were happy 
There were also a few fines to go around.
