Lion president Tony

Christy Wood gives today’s program. 

Todays Meeting

Lion President Tony led our meeting today and called on Lion Pat to lead us in saluting the flag, Lions Bob Line to lead us in singing God Bless America, and Lion Dee to do the invocation. 

The no-fine badge went to Lion Betty.

The secret greater today was Lion Dee. You Roar editor Lion Roy, along with Lions Tom Link and Bob Bricker, had to shell out a dollar for not shaking his hand.


Lion Leigh announced that Dee and himself had gone to La Sierra school for a Leo club meeting that they found out had been canceled, but Lion Leigh came home with a Leo shirt.

Lion Craig did the second reading of the slate of officers for the 2023-24 year. The list will appear at the end of this week’s newsletter.

It was discussed at the last board meeting that we send a survey to all members regarding our once-a-month evening meetings. We have been doing this for about a year and the board would like input on how all club members feal about these meetings and the cost of the meals, which will be increasing.  Lion Lauri sent out a survey last week so check your emails if you have not seen it and if you have not done so yet, please fill it out and either bring it to the club on Wednesday evening or scan it and send it back. It’s also ok to simply reply by email, it’ll save all that scanning.

Auction Items

Lion Betty and Aaron had just returned from a trip to Isreal and brought back a box of Dates, purchased by Lion Pat for $10.

Happy Bucks 

Lion Dee was happy his granddaughter was in a play at her school.

Lion Mark was happy that his 1,700-mile drive to and from Idaho was safe, and he had got to see his daughter and son-in-law.

Lion Roy was happy our speaker Christy Wood was with us, and in talking with her, he realized he had done a photo shoot for her back in the 90s:  three horses, a Corvette, and several people. 

Lion Bob Line was happy his grandson, a head baseball coach, won Clovis in the Valley playoffs. They were 21-5 on the season.

Lion Aaron was happy that he and Betty had a great trip to Isreal and that the flight on El Al was also good—especially the food.

Lion Pat noted that one of our former members, Mark Krantz had a similar story to Ann Frank and had spent some time living in Isreal after WWII.

Lion Craig was $5 happy that he made it to Yosemite and saw some amazing waterfalls. “There’s water where there’s never been water before,” he noted.

Lion Allen was happy that he was going to Anaheim to watch the Angles play his beloved Red Sox for the 25th year, and making it more rewarding, he was going with his sons.



Lion Karen fined herself because her phone rang. Come to find out, her grandson got stuck in the play area at Carls Jr., and the child’s mother didn’t know what to do. 

Lion Tom Link was also fined for his phone ringing during club. 

Lion Allen tried to fine Lion Betty for something, but she was the holder of the no-fine badge, and he had to pay the buck.
