VDG Ed Gibbons said he’s trying to get Sally Lee, the president of Habitat for Humanity in this area, as our speaker for a meeting soon. Habitat will be building a home in Johnson City for a visually-impaired client and could use our help and the help of the ETSU club. Lion Bill Moore said his Kingsport Club helped build one a while back and LCI provided his club a grant for the project.
Lion Debbie Shipley asked to be the program chair on the 17th of this month. There doesn’t seem to any opposition to this request.
Two new members, Jerry Mathisen and Bryan B. Botts were inducted into the Johnson City club today. VDG Ed Gibbons sponsored Jerry and one of our newest members, Tom Terry, sponsored Bryan. Welcome new Bryan and Jerry and good job sponsors Ed and Tom. If this keeps up we’re going to have to meet in the large ball room soon.
Meeting adjourned at 1:00.
Board Meeting next Thursday!!!
