Lion Betty had been to Avila Beach and had some fudge sold to someone else for some money. (sorry, didn’t make notes, I was busy bidding on the fudge)
Lion Betty had a happy buck for being here after some health issues.
Lion Roy had $10 because he had been to Vegas and failed to bring back anything to auction off; he was also happy to see both Lions Aaron and Betty with us today and that he made it back from Vegas ok after having to wait on I-15 for an hour and a half because someone RV burned to the ground. He was also happy Kelly Link had offered to speak at today’s meeting at the last minute and that she being here today had caused her dad to be on time for today’s meeting.
