Lion Allen was happy that he and his daughter had gotten wild hair last week to visit his son in LA, and together, they went to see his grandparent’s graves and went to Venice Beach to see other people of interest.

Lion Karen was $4, happy that for the next two weeks, She and Lion Rick would be in Arizona for spring training.

Lion Mark was happy that next week he will turn 63 and will be heading to the coast to celebrate.


Lions Tom and Irene were both fined for being late.

Lion Allen fined Lion Dee for getting him and Lion Aaron confused. 

Lion Dee decided to ask us all who our district governor was and whyle both Lions Allen and Roy came up with Lyon Christy Kroell’s name, it was too late, and both had to pay a dollar, along with most everyone else at today’s meeting.

Secret greeter: Lion Roy was it today, and I was so unpopular that the club racked in some serious cash.
