Our meeting today
Lion Tony lead our meeting today as Lion President Aaron was ill. He called on Lion Brent to lead us in the flag salute, Lion Dee to lead us in singing God Bless America, and Lion Pete to do the invocation.
Annual golf tournament May 13th at Plaza Park. The first committee meeting was held on Wednesday. The meeting consisted of Betty, Brent, and Roy. One decision that was made was to have the event catered by the golf club this year (Tacos) instead of doing the food ourselves. It was determined that doing the food took a lot of work for not a lot of savings. We also sent around a signup sheet to start getting volunteers. If anyone would like to volunteer please text or call Betty at 510-909-3598 We still have many slots that need to be filled that day.
Our main need right now is to get sponsors. We will have a sheet detailing the sponsorships that are available so that members can take them to prospects soon.
The next golf committee meeting will be Wednesday, Feb 9th at 5:30 at Lion Roy’s studio on Main St. (115 W. Main) Want to be on the golf committee? Text Roy at 559-289-2382 and let him know.
Our guest today was our program, Ashley Martinez from COS veterans affairs.
Lion Karen auctioned off a small box of cookies from her trip to Hawaii, which was purchased by Lion Roy for $8.
Lion Tom Link auctioned off a pair of tickets to last Saturday night’s fundraiser for the Rotary theater and they were purchased by Lion Pat for $100. Pat then tried to find one of us who could or wanted to go, everybody was either already going or was not able to go.
