Tony hands out gifts to Lion Allen

Our program today, Tony Noriega, hands out a gift to Lion Allen 

Todays Meeting

Lion President Melinda once again led our meeting and called on Lion Bob Line to lead us in saluting our flag, Lion Pat to lead us in singing America the Beautiful, and Lion Dee to do the invocation. Once that was completed, Lion Allen introduced our only guest, Tony Noriega, with Gentiva Hospice, who was also our program today. It was noted that Tony was not related to the more well-known Manuel Noriega of Pamana fame. 

The no-fine badge went to Lion John today.


Wednesday, April 10th: Board Meeting at Mountain Mikes Pizza on Mooney. 5:30 start time.

This month’s birthdays are Lions Clif Dunbar and our president, Lion Melinda, so we sang happy birthday to Melinda.

Lion Melinda also handed out a 45-year chevron award to Lion Tom Gaebe. Lion Steve was his sponsor, Steve having joined just a year or two before Lion Tom.

Lion Allen announced another vision screen will take place this Thursday, the 11th, from 5 to 7 at Sequoia High School’s early learning Resource Fair taking place at 1040 N. Woodland St. If you can help, please let Lion Allen know at 559-936-4563.

Happy Bucks 

Lion Pat was happy that a biopsy on his elbow came back negative for cancer.

Lion Aaron was happy to be back. He is doing well, and his wife, Lion Betty, is also doing better and hopes to be back in the club soon.

Lion Dee was happy he had a new great-grandson (his 10th). Winston, 7.5 lbs.

Lion Tom Gaebe was happy that tax season it almost over.

Lion Bob Line was also happy that tax season is almost over, as he will be getting a refund.

Lion Tom Link was happy that he and his wife would travel to the Greek Islands in July.

Lion Roy was happy to see Lion Aaron with us today, and he had three happy bucks as the Dodger won all three of three against the Giants this week.

Tony Noriega with Gentiva Hospice

was our program today. He talked about how Gentiva was a nationwide organization that relied on many volunteers to work with those in hospice care and found that many people are all alone when they pass away. Having someone with them, if nothing more than to sit and talk, was a great relief to them.
