LION CHARLES WAS COLLECTING FROM EVERYONE THERE AND EVEN TRIED TO FINE OUR GUESTS. WE TOLD HIM THAT LION DON RAINES USUALLY LETS THEM SLIDE BY SO HE DECIDED TO LET THEM OFF.

LION PRESIDENT TIM HAD AS HIS SPEAKER TODAY, SCOTT AND ELIZABETH COTTRILL. ELIZABETH HAS BEEN BLIND SINCE BIRTH. SHE HAS HOME SCHOOLED ALL HER CHILDREN AND HAS COLLECTED A LIBRARY OF BOOKS FOR FAMILIES WHO ARE BLIND AS WELL AS OTHERS.

SHE IS IN NEED OF A BRAILLE PRINTER FOR HER COMPUTER TO HELP HER PREPARE HER SPEECHES. WE ARE TO DISCUSS MAYBE A CONTRIBUTION FOR HER TO PURCHASE ONE. LION PDG ED MENTION THAT MAYBE OUR CLUB CAN SEND IN A GRANT REQUEST TO LIONS INTERNATIONAL TO HELP WITH THE PURCHASE.
