The Board of the Johnson City Lion’s Club met for the June board meeting on June 11, 2020 at the J.C. Country Club. Those present for the meeting were: Jerry Lonon, George Winton, Tim Tapp, Steve Campbell, Debbie Shipley, Doris Kaifa, Ed Gibbons, and Ken Gough.
The meeting was called to order by President Debbie Shipley and she asked Ken Gough for a financial report. Ken noted that there was a balance of 6,326.82 in the Admin fund and 29,375 in the Projects Fund. Steve shared that we received a refund to the Turtle Derby Fund from the State of Tennessee. Ed Gibbons made the motion to accept the report and Steve Campbell provided a second to that motion. All were in favor and the motion carried.
President Shipley gave congratulations to Ed for getting his eye exam and eyeglass case load caught up. Ed noted that 25 exams and glasses were provided and that was a tremendous help. He stated that he would like to have the Appalachian Miles for Smiles Van at least twice a year and that it was a big help. Ed requested that a gift of $500 be given to the Appalachian Miles for Smiles. A motion was made by Ken Gough and a second was provided by George Winton. All were in favor and the motion carried.
The proposed budget was presented by Ken Gough and the dues structure was discussed. The dues are currently 37.50 per month. The proposal being made is that the dues be 17.00 per month with no meals. If a member decides to eat it would be 12.50 per meal added to the 17.00. If a member decided to eat at both meetings the total cost would be 42.00 per month. Board members would pay an extra 12.50 per month should they decide to eat. A vote of the membership is required for this change to take place. Some members had requested considering this change because they did not eat or did not want to eat but were being charged the full amount.
Ed Gibbons made a motion to send our yearly LCIF donation before July 1st. Steve Campbell provided a second. All were in favor and the motion carried.
We will have officer induction on June 18th and all members (especially incoming officers) are encouraged to be present. We will have a regular meeting on July 2nd.
Tim Tapp – Secretary
