Lion President Carol alerted us to an article in the Lions magazine, a club in New England also does eye screening. The story was about the fact that they  found cancer in a little girls eye and because of that they very well saved her life.. Thanked lion Allen, if it wasn’t for him we would not be doping the eye screenings.

Band review, got our check for $4285.00.  Yeah.. Thanks to lion Tom Gabor,

Buddy Gillespie  has resigned from the club because of health issues.  A card was sent saying that we miss him but we understand.

Allen announced that the  golf tournament committee meeting at BMi on Thursday at 5:30 prices for players  will be the same as last year. If you can donate just one raffle gift that would make the tournament a success. .
