Evening meeting at Quail Park Shannon Ranch

Sonia Mehrmand from Story Corps, our program for our first regular Friday night meeting.

Lion past president Craig Wheaton lead the meeting today in Lion president Arron’s absence and called on Lion Melinda to lead us in saluting the flag, Lion Pat to lead us in singing the God Bless America, and Lion Bob Line to do the invocation.

Lion Craig did not ask anyone to be a secret greater tonight so he paid $5, which he felt would be more than the secret greater would have brought in if he had of remembered.


Membership mixer committee meeting: Wednesday, March 30th, 5:30 at Quail Park Shannon Ranch.

Lion Allen along with Lions Roy and Leigh Musconi screened 85 kids this past Wednesday morning at Valley Oak Charter school on Akers and Caldwell. This was the first vision screening in over two years and we have another one this coming Wednesday at Valley Life’s other campus  at Walnut and Demeree.

Don’t forget about our membership mixer on April 28th from 5:30-8:00 at the Marriott. Each member is encourgaged to bring a guest and hopefully somone who is a prospective member. It’s been said that nothing happens without money, and you could also say nothing happens without club members.


We had three guests today, Lion Bob’s wife, Norma Kay was with us, Craig brought along a guest, long time friend Charlene and our Speaker, Sonia Mehrmand from Story Corps was also with us.

Today’s Program

Sonia Mehrmand was our guest again tonight. I say again because this was the second time she has been a guest at our club. She is with Story Corps, a orgazation who brings together people with different views and has them get to know each other through a series of questions. She showed us two short videos of our own Lions Craig and Arron going through the process.
