Lions meeting for May 3, 2024

Todays Meeting

Lion President Melinda just made it to our meeting today. She was visiting one of our former members and presidents, Janet McClintock, and it was hard for Melinda to get away. Melinda called on Lion Allen to lead us in saluting our flag, Lion Pat to lead us in song, and Lion Pete to do the invocation.

No fine badge went to Lion Bob Line.


Wednesday, May 8th: Board Meeting at Mountain Mikes Pizza at 5:30.

The one birthday this month was our missing lion, Craig Wheaton.

Lion Steve is still having some issues with vertigo, so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

Lion Tony has been gone for a few meetings taking care of his wife Nancy’s father, who lives in Colorado. Please keep his father-in-law in your thoughts and prayers also.

The meeting last Wednesday with the Sequoia Lions about merging our two clubs went well. It seems that both our clubs see this as a positive thing. While some details need to be worked out, like meeting days and how we will take care of the funds, our clubs have most other details in order. Another meeting is set for Wednesday, May 22, at Iris Fever’s office at the Visalia Emergency Air counsel.

Pat has a happy buck.

Lion Dee fined Lion Tom Link for being “really” late today. 

Lion Brad was fined because he was also a member of the Farmersville Kiwanis Club. 

Lion Melinda fined herself because she had not selected a secret greater today. 



The $5 drawing went to Lion Brad, who donated it to the Leo Club (but not in honor of Dee because of that fine) 

Lotto ticket: Lion Tom Gaebe
