Tuesday, June 4th, 12:00 PM: Visitation with Sequoia Lions Club, Amegos Restaurant, 5113 W. Walnut Ave, corner of Walnut and Akers. 

Lions Park: The sign at Lions Park, located at 6500 W. Ferguson, needs some restoration work. The lion’s seal is gone, and it needs repainting. Lion Melinda will inquire with the city on how to proceed. 

Past presidents meeting: Lion Tony has set this year’s past presidents meeting for Wednesday, June 5th, at Mountain Mikes Pizza, 3103 South Mooney Blvd. The meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. and will discuss our officer lineup for the 24-25-year term.

Club merger meeting: The second meeting with the Sequoia Lions Club took place on Wednesday, the 22, and more progress was made regarding how the process will work. Club funds will be merged, and that process with the state of California, since our club is a 501C three corp, will take some time. The expected merger should take place sometime in the early fall. Both clubs will set a slate of officers now, as the new year will begin July 1st, and we’ll divi up the roles once the merger takes place. Meeting days and places have not yet been formalized, but we will meet weekly as our club does now.  The Sequoia club meets twice a month at Amego’s.

Lion Robert from Sequoia Lions noted that one of their club’s big fundraisers, a firework booth, is coming up soon and asked for help from our club. A sign-up will go around next week.

Up date on Lion Steve: He is doing better and hopes to be back at our meeting next week.
