New Business:

King Lion Winton asked that the secretary resend all JCLC members an email sent earlier this week by DG Lion Gibbons urging JCLC members to volunteer for the upcoming Remote Area Medical (RAM) event coming up in May at the Bristol Raceway.

DG Lion Gibbons agreed to send a letter to the family of Lion Frank Anderson (deceased) re their request for a donation to the ETSU Golf Scholarship Fund. In the letter he will say that we are making a $1,000.00 donation to the Johnson City Lions Club Scholarship program for blind or deaf students, already established, which will be made up of individual donations from JC Lions and out of the 2015-2016 budget, in Lion Anderson’s memory.

Lion Gough announced that his Jaguar will leave the Wal-Mart parking lot this Saturday at 6:00 am sharp with about three thousand glasses for the recycling trip to Roanoke with room for only one passenger.  Therefore, any Lion who would like to volunteer for the trip and needs transportation call the Secretary (423-943-6756).  He will be taking back glasses that Dr. Judaun Allison did not use on her mission trip to Uganda last year.

King Lion is donating $250.00 out of his President’s Discretionary Fund to Dr. Allison for this year’s Uganda mission trip for making glasses.

Old Business: It was agreed to induct the new club officers at the first regular meeting in May with DG Ed Gibbons presiding.

Meeting adjourned at: 12.56 PM.

John Merriss
