Lion Dee had back surgery on the 23ed and it went well. He is recovering and home and hopes to be back in a week or two.
Lion Tom Link recently returned from a cruise to Alaska and auctioned off a T-Shirt for $15 to Lion Pat. He could not come back from a trip that involved the ocean without some salt water taffy, this time from the Ketchikan Mining company that went to Lion Karen for $10.
Lion Brent had been to Tahoe but had not brought back anything so he gave $10 to the club.
Lion Karen had $2 because she had won $6 in last week’s Lotto drawing. She is upping the ante on this deal as normally it’s been 10% to the club, but now she has set it at 33%.

Brent was happy that when he was in Tahoe he won $500 at one of the Casinos.

Lion Bob Line was happy that Lions Pete’s Grandson was an all-star in Cal Ripken baseball.
Lion Pet was happy that former Lion Chris Baldwin has fixed his AC that went out the day before they left for France. He was also happy that the part that went out was under warranty.
