Jack Argotsinger Jean Bodensteiner Lynn Harris
Loren Heckathorne Dean Howell Paul Malsom
LaNair Niblock Jim Perkins Jerry Radke

The minutes of the 2 July 2001 board meeting were read and approved. The treasurer's balance was $7,730.31. The treasurer reported that he has received from Rua Svensen a memorial check for $300 in honor of deceased Lion Dale Svensen. Rua would like us to have a tree planted in the new SCORE park in Dale's honor. Lion Dean suggested we have Earl May Nursery plant the tree. Country Landscapes also was mentioned. Lion Dean will check with Tim Hansen of Parks and Recreation to see if we can put a plaque with the tree. Lion Jean moved to have the club pay for the plaque, seconded by Dean. Lion Angelo doubts that Park and Recreation will allow this. Lion Jack moved to table the motion until we find out. Seconded by Lion Loren and passed. Parks and Recreation has its next meeting 13 August 2001 and SCORE has its next meeting 20 August 2001.

The secretary presented the following bills: (1) Lions Clubs International for member dues = $444.00, (2) Smitty's Super Valu for RAGBRAI food stand supplies = 159.10, (3) Fareway Stores, Inc. for RAGBRAI supplies = 128.42, and (4) Dean Howell for RAGBRAI supplies = 32.61. Lion Lynn moved to pay the bills, seconded by Lion Jan and passed. Lion Dean was given a round of applause for organizing the RAGBRAI food stand.

Lion Secretary Jerry handed out and explained the 2000-2001 financial report. The Financial Committee will meet before our next board meeting to consider dues, meal costs, and the scholarship certificates of deposit. Lion Susan moved to approve the report, seconded by Lion Jean, and passed.

For old business, several reports were given. The Tractor Ride and RAGBRAI food stands should bring in a profit after all the bills are paid. The profit will be small compared to the approximate 150 hours worked on each. However, it was felt that the chance for Lions to work together and the visibility and good publicity warrant doing these types of events. The Family Night had good entertainment, good food, good weather, and was enjoyed by all. We also received good coverage in the Nevada Journal. The 4th of July parade float was pulled by Lion Bill Horine and candy was rationed so it lasted throughout the parade. Our Lions sponsored baseball team rode on the float.

Lion President Angelo reported that the Gates Hall Board will meet on 8 August in the North Room to consider our request for reduced meeting room rent. Lion Dean is now on that board. Lion Angelo also reported that Tim Hansen told him that only large ticket items will be allowed their own plaques in SCORE. However, the other parks can have plaques. Lion Angelo will check with Tim Hansen about the upcoming meetings on 13 and 20 September.

Several upcoming events were discussed for new business. Lion Jim reported that we are signed up for 6-member teams to work the six ISU football games: 8, 15, and 29 September; 20 October; and 3 and 10 November. Lion Jean will organize Lions to work in parking lots for ISU Residence Halls on 22-24 August during dorm move-in. Lion Jan is organizing the Lincoln Highway Days food stand for 24 and 25 August 2001. She will check to see if we can setup outside instead of in the Community Building. Lions Duane, John, Jim, and Charles are on the committee.

Lion Angelo will invite District Governor Tim Wilson for his official visit to one of our meetings in September or October. The Publicity and Membership Committees need to meet. Lion Dean will invite the farmer who allowed us to use his land for our RAGBRAI food stand to a future meeting. A Nevada lady has requested help paying for glasses. The Sight Committee needs to check this out. Lion Angelo reported that he will have the club directory ready by our 22 August meeting. Libby Zaletel requested financial help to attend a leadership conference in Washington DC. Lion Dean moved to give her $50 toward her costs provided she is going and can give us a program in the future. Seconded by Lion Jean and passed. Lion Jim volunteered to line-up a program for our meeting on 22 August 2001.

The 10 September board meeting will be at PDG Jan Whaley's home. Lion Duane moved to adjourn, seconded by Lion Dean, and we adjourned at 8:40 pm.

Lion Dean Howell reported on progress towards planting a Memorial Tree in memory of Lion Dale Svensen. Dale's widow, Rua, has given $300 to our club for this purpose. Earl May Nursery in Ames will plant a nice sized Autumn Blaze Red Maple tree for $300 at the southwest corner of Gates Hall. Lion Odin moved to have Earl May plant the tree, seconded by Lion Jan and passed. Lion Dean reported that we can get a bronze plaque from Cyclone Awards in Ames with a Lions Emblem and lettering for $111.47. Lion Steve moved to have Lion Dean and Lion Secretary Jerry Radke decide on and purchase the best plaque. Seconded by Lion Jean and passed.

Lion Dean moved to send a $25 memorial to Lion Dayton Countryman in honor of his deceased wife, Ruth Countryman. Seconded by Lion Jean and passed.

Lion Odin reported that prices for eye glasses from Dr. Neff are $120 and from McFarland Eye Clinic are $164. We have had two recent requests for help with eye glasses. The Sight Committee recommends that we pay up to $100 for eye glasses and that we approve Donna Wilson and Marvin Lande Sr. to each receive that amount. Lion Steve moved to accept their recommendation, seconded by Lion Paul, and passed with one opposed. It was agreed to revisit this recommendation in the near future to consider paying the entire cost of glasses.

Lion Jean moved to adjourn, seconded by Lion Jan, and the meeting adjourned at 9:05 pm.
