Lion Craig announced that Lion Lauri has secured a date for the next Murder Mystery dinner, but it won’t be until next year. July 16th, 2022.

Lion Daryl Farnsworth was laid to rest on Tuesday, April 6th, at the Visalia Cemetery. Daryl was a long-time member of the Visalia Host Lions. He was president of our club in 1997-98 and an all-around good guy. He will be missed.

Happy Bucks:

Lion John was happy that he has been able to go fishing several times lately, and he was happy his stepdaughter will be getting married soon. She is having her bachelorette party in Miami Beach, plus he and his wife are going on a trip with friends soon.

Lion Pat was happy his son came home unannounced last night. His home is closing escrow early.

Lion George had a happy buck because he would fly his airplane one last time soon. Most of the club wanted either a warning just before takeoff or to make sure George would fly only over open fields for safety’s sake. (for the rest of us, that is)

Lion Allen was $5 happy because he won at the slots in Vegas, and he had one for having know Lion Darrell Farnsworth.

Lion Vickie was happy her husband was doing great; in fact, he was Trap Shooting in Oakhurst as we were meeting today. She was also happy for Lion Betty and Husband Lion Aaron for being in charge of our meeting last week. She also had a happy buck because her kids went to Walt Disney World for a week and had a great time.

Lion Karen was $20 happy because she was finished with cancer treatments, and she and Rick were fully vaccinated.

Lion president Craig was $5 happy because Lions Aaron and Betty filled in for him at last week’s meeting, and he was going to help close down the Ski resort this coming weekend. Plus, he and his girlfriend booked a six-day rafting trip down The Colorado River this coming July.


Lion Vicki fined Lion Betty for another short joke.

Lion Allen fined Lion Roy for making a mistake on the newsletter a couple of weeks ago, getting July Wooley’s name wrong.

Secret greater: Lion George was the secret greater, but that caused many arguments because George claimed that people fist-bumped him instead of shaking his hand. Most of us claimed that we could not be fined by following COVID protocols, so very little, if any, money was earned for the club.

Program: Nope, we didn’t have one.


$5, Lion Bob Bricker won it and gave it to the Leo Club.

Lotto: Allen, we’ll see if his luck holds from his Vegas trip.

Lion Pat won the ability to draw the white marble, but he had no luck.

Lion Pat draws the wrong marble.

Lion Pat won the free add.

Yep, that’s his add.
