Our monthly board meeting is set for this coming Wednesday, March 16th at 5:30 at Quail Park Shannon Ranch.
Our guest today was Visalia fire chief Dan Griswald, who was also our program.
Lion Pete was happy that major league baseball had come to an agreement and will be back the first week of April.
Karen had a happy buck because she won the Lotto tickets last week and won $6.00, she was also happy because baseball is back and she is going to Spring Training in Arizona for the next two weeks.
Roar editor Lion Roy was happy he had a good motorcycle camping trip to Death Valley last week.
Lion Brad was happy that the fire chief was with us today and that he and his famous red State Farm panel van would be in the Visalia St. Patrick’s day parade on Saturday.
Lion Craig was $5 happy that he was able to be at an educational event in the bay area last week and it was in person, for the first time in two years. He said that when the person in charge saw him, he said “oh no, it’s you, the last time I saw you things didn’t go so well” (it was March 2020 and everything shut down just a few days later) He was also happy because he had plans to surprise his daughter on her birthday by showing up at her house when she got off work.
Lion Bob Line was happy that Visalia Unified has a new superintendent. For some strange reason, Bob relates to the position of school superintendent.
Lion Vicki was happy her husband is doing great and was playing golf in Tulare, she was also happy that chief Davenport was with us, and in April she is going to Las Vegas and will be going to a John Legend concert, though she had a little brain freeze and thought that it was John Lennon.
