Meeting notes from the 1st regular meeting for September of the Johnson City Lions Club held Thursday, September 4,2014 at the Johnson City Country Club, Johnson City, TN 37604
(16 members present and 1 guest)
The meeting was called to order at 12:26 PM by King Lion, George Winton.
After the prayer led by DG Lion Ed and the pledge led by Lion Gayle Cox whoever won the drawing donated it to the Turtle Derby.
Speaking of the Turtle Derby, Lion Campbell again announced the new “very firm” Turtle Derby date of November 6, 2014. That’s on a Thursdayin the MSHA Athletic Center (aka the “The Dome” and, just for the Derby, “The Thunder Dome”) on the ETSU campus.
PDG Lion Dennis Powell moved that we only print the minimum order of posters and the regular order of tickets for this year’s Derby. The motion was seconded by Ken Gough and passed unanimously.
It was decided by executive privilege that there will not be a Board of Director’s meeting next Thursday. King George said for any Lion not going to the USA-Canadian Forum to use that time to sell turtles.
Sponsorship sales doubled in two weeks – we’re up to 66! Only 434 to go!
Our speaker today was PDG Clare Crawford from the North Knoxville Club in District 12N who reported on the Eye Bank and that Mountain States Hospital Group has left the system for the present time. This has resulted in a 33% loss of income earned from fees for transporting eyes and eye tissues, etc.
Meeting adjourned at 12:57 PM
Lion John Merriss
