Lion Gough reported that we need to refurbish the collection box in Erwin.


LVBI: Lion Don Raines reported that LVBI needs chairs to replace the broken down ones that are  way past the time to replace. LVBI is asking for $10,000.00 from the clubs in the district. Lion Raines challenged our club to do our share by offering to contribute $230.00 if the club would contribute a $770.00 match for a $1,000.00 total contribution the JCLC. Lion Gibbons moved for the club to take up the challenge and pledge $770.00. Dennis Powell seconded the motion and the motion passed unanimously. President Lion Gough asked Lion Gibbons to write a check for $1,000.00 to LVBI and he would get the $770.00 from Misc. funds from the 2016 FYE budget and the $230.00 from Lion Raines.

 Turtle Derby: Lion Raines has arranged for coverage with Cumulus Broadcasting and the News and Neighbor on the night of the Turtle Derby.

Lion Shipley suggested we try to advertise on the electric billboard on West Market St. with a Public Service Announcement. That billboard is near the Carter Center and can add to interest, attendance and business support. Lion Raines will see if that can be arranged; he knows the owner of that billboard company.

Lion Gough said he will write a letter to the editors of the JC Press and the News and Neighbor to gin up support for the TD.

Lion Raines said he will create a press release for the Derby. It was agreed to print up 2000 new (free) tickets for this year’s event that will be distributed to the schools and pre- schools in Washington County. It was agreed to place yard signs for the Turtle Derby to be placed near the Carter Center.
