Dennis Powell was presented with the Centennial Membership Award by Lions International.
Ed. Gibbons made the announcement that there was money still available from Sight First funds and that LCI is allowing that money to come back to the club.

Tim Tapp presented the Membership Report and discussed the possibility of a “youth project”.
Some discussion came about in regard to pruning the cherry trees. Ken Gough believes that we need to talk to Parks and Rec but others stated that we have tried that approach before to no avail. The motion was made that Ken speak to the Parks and Rec leadership first and if unsuccessful we would seek bids to have them pruned. Ed Gibbons made the motion with a second by Gayle Cox. All were in favor.
Brian Powell noted that the membership tags need to be updated and that he is looking into purchasing new ones. Ken Gough made the motion to allocate up to $150.00 for the project and George Winton provided a second to the motion. The motion passed.

With no further business to come before the board the meeting was adjourned.
