Lion JuneAnn Smith with the Miss California Padgent.
Lion Pete has a happy buck.
Lion President Roy led our meeting today and called on Lion Bob Line to lead us in singing God Bless America, Lion Craig for the flag salute, and Lion Pete to do the invocation.
Your club greeter, Lion Allen, won the no-fine badge.
Lion Bob Line reminded the club that the celebration of life for Lion Bob Bricker would be Saturday, November 18th at the Darling Hotel from 1:30-4:30.
Lion president Roy announced that at the meeting on Wednesday morning, the board decided to end the almost two-year practice of meeting on the fourth Wednesday of every month in the evening. The club will return to meeting every Friday at noon at Left of Center.
The board also voted to return to a golf tournament fundraiser to be held on Friday, September 20th, 2024. After the results of the Murder Mystery Dinner had not been what the club had hoped, the board decided that we would go back to an event that the club had done for many years in the past. Lion Melinda will be the committee chairman.
The board also voted to give Hands in the Community a donation of $250 to help with the purchase of a special boot for an elderly lady who had found her boot missing when she returned from a stay in a nursing home. The original boot had been paid for by her insurance and she did not have the funds to pay for a new one out of her pocket. Hands in the community had then gone to the manufacturer and negotiated a lower price, then went to a local doctor who agreed to change his cost.
The board also decided that Friday, December 15th, would be the date for our annual Christmas party. Invite your spouse or friend and bring a toy for a boy and a girl for our annual drive for Visalia Emergency Aid.
Lion president Roy was happy he had no jobs for the coming week. After over a month of being swamped, it’s time for a little rest.

Lion Craig was happy that he was able to ride his bike to the meeting today and happy that the snow, which is due later in the week, was going to hold off for a few days so he could get his ski patrol lessons in.
Lion Pete was also happy to see our guests and happy that he was moving his office to a larger space soon.
Lion Pat was happy that Lion Tony filled in as the Lion Tamer for the day, and he was happy for his barbershop group’s Christmas program.
Lion Dee fined Lion Craig for scaring him by riding his bike and not stopping at the stop sign.
Lion Roy had a buck for a joke about Frosty the snowman in the vegetable aisle, checking out the carrots; when asked what he was doing, he replied, oh nothing, just picking my nose.
