Meeting notes from the 1st regular meeting of the Johnson City Lions Club for October Lions Club held Thursday, October 2, 2014 at the Johnson City Country Club, Johnson City, TN 37604
(11 members present and 2 guests)
The meeting was called to order at 12:27 PM by King Lion, George Winton.
After the prayer led by DG Lion Ed and the pledge led by Ken Gough who remembered every word, we were underway.
The Secretary won the drawing and gave it all to the Turtle Derby.
Lion CB Willis moved that we order 40 cases of pecans this year or more if more are requested. 12 and 16 ounce bags can be ordered. We will charge $8.00 for the 12 ounce bags for a $2.35 profit and $10.00 for the pound bags for a $2.50 profit. Lion Ken Gough seconded the motion and it carried unanimously.
Don Raines introduced Jeff Derby with the News and Neighbor newspaper and Ken Davis with WCYB who are doing publicity for the Turtle Derby.
Our speaker today was PDG Lion Bill McDonald and his wife Carole from the Campbell Club who did a wonderful presentation on the Leader Dog program and brought two beautiful, well behaved dogs to the meeting, one of which was unable to complete the program due to bad knees, and the other, just a pup, in training.
Meeting adjourned at 1:00 PM
Lion John Merriss
