Lion Craig recently returned from a hike in Europe and had two items, a bar of Toblerone chocolate that went to Lion Steve for $10 and a package of dried pork salami that also went for $10 to Lion Brent.
Lion Pete was happy that he had some family time with relatives in the pacific northwest, but he did not bring back anything for an auction item, so he donated $10. He also had a dollar for his parents, who celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary.
Lion Pat was also happy that he had family time in Tustin.
Lion Miriam was happy to be back as she had missed a week or two.
Lion Betty was out of quarantine for COVID and was happy about that.
Lion Craig was happy (well, maybe not completely happy) to return from his hiking trip to Europe.
Lion Karen was happy to have our speakers here today.
Lion Brent was also happy for our speakers and happy his son made the time trials for swimming.
Our speaker, Rajeev was happy to be with us today.
Lion Pete was happy for Lion Bob Lines’s great-grandson, who qualified for the state Cal Ripkin tournament and went to the championship game. They didn’t win the game, but it was quite an accomplishment to make it that far.
Lion Pat was happy his son-in-law took his kids to a Red Sox game.
Lion Roy was was glad to be back after he had spent the past week at home building fences; he was also happy the Dodgers were in the first place.
Lion Karen fined Lions Roy, Betty, and Pat for short jokes earlier in the meeting. Apparently, without Lion Vickie at the meeting, Lion Karen is the shortest member in attendance.
Lion Brent fined Lion Bob Line for forgetting his great grandson’s baseball accomplishments.
Winners and Losers
The five-dollar drawing went to Lion Pat, who donated it to the Lion Eye foundation.
Lion President Tony drew for the white marble but came up with another color. Collusion was uttered in the room.
Rajeev Vaidyanathan with Oxitec and Dr. Mustapha Debboun of Delta Vector Control District were our speakers today and gave us a wealth of information about controlling Mosquitos, including Oxitec’s innovative technology where they bread Male Mosquitos that when they impregnate females produce female offspring (the females are the ones that bite) that die right away, thus only the Males live. It was an interesting program.
Rajeev Vaidyanathan with Oxitec tells us that only the Female Mosquitos bite and that it only takes a few days in stagnant water as small as a water bottle cap can allow them to hatch.
