Lion Miriam was happy her dad was visiting us from LA. She was also happy that she got a bunch of glasses from Kaweah Health to give to the Lions.
Lion Dee was happy that finally, after six months, he has a date for back surgery. One bad thing about that is that it’s this coming Thursday the 23rd, so he will have to miss the installation dinner.
Lion Pat was $20 happy that three of his nieces are in town.
Lion Karen was happy the Giants swept the Dodgers the past weekend.
Lion Craig was also happy about the Giant’s sweep. He was also happy that he will begin his hike in the Alps next week.
Lion Alan was happy that he got to go watch the RedSox in Anaheim with his son and daughter. He was also happy that he was going to Vegas next week with his other son and his daughter.
Lion Roy was happy that Little league was finished for the year in Farmersville, as his grandson had been playing to the Giants. He was also happy that his favorite horror film, John Carpenters’ The Thing was in theaters this coming week, for the 40th anniversary.
Lion Dee fined Tom Link because several years ago they had an agreement to take each other to lunch on their birthday, and at Colimas the owner had given them a free lunch when Dee had been the one to pay, now the owner offered the same deal to Tom.
Lion Dee also fined Lion Pat because Pat’s freezer recently when out on him and instead of giving away all the meat that was in it, Pat let it go bad.
Lion Craig was our greater today and he was able to get money from all of one table and Lion Roy.
$5 drawing went to Lion Tom Link and he donated it to the eye foundation.
The Lotto tickets went to Lion Craig.
The Marble drawing, as you can see in one of the photos at the top of the page went to Lion Brent.
Our own Lion Miriam was the program today. She is employed by Kaweah Health as a patient experience manager. She is one of two people who help with the experience patients have when they interact with the hospital. Much of what she does is take complaints and work through them to help make sure that the same situation doesn’t happen again.
