Lion Susan moved to pay the bills, seconded by Lion Steve, and passed.
Lion Jean reported that we are getting ready for the Lions Chicken BBQ on 23 August 2003. She suggested that we consider having Midwest Pack cook the chicken for us at 35 cents a pound. After some discussion, Lion Steve moved to authorize Midwest Pack to pick-up, cook, and deliver the chicken for the 23 August event. The motion was seconded by Lion Susan and passed. It was noted that Margaret Crane will buy the leftover necks and giblets from us. Sign-up sheets are out, advertising is being arranged, and grocery shopping will begin.
We had 63 attend our annual Family Night at Hickory Grove park. The Double D's plus family members entertained and everyone had an enjoyable evening. Several Lions worked at ISU Dining for the Jel Conference and we have received a check for $252. The Lincoln Highways Day float is being prepared. Lions Susan, John Wheelock, and Jim Fenn are in charge of the float. Lion Jim Perkins will walk in the Lions costume handing out candy. Lion Steve moved to authorize a donation of $50 to the Lincoln Highway Day Committee. Seconded by Lion Dwight and passed. New business: Lion President Paul passed around two brochures that he would like to order for the club. Lion Jerry moved that we extend Lion Odin Christian's Member-at-Large status for another six months. Seconded by Lion Dwight and passed. Lion President Paul has prepared an "Event Tracker" that is to be used for all activities and events. The chairperson will record the number of hours worked by each Lion and turn the tracker over to the secretary.
Lion Jean would like to attend the USA Canada Forum in Oregon and a Leadership Conference in Blair, Nebraska. The costs are $757 and $100, respectively. Registration for the USA-Canada Forum is $175. Lion Duane moved to pay the registration of any Nevada Lion attending any Lions meeting for training and education. The motion was seconded by Lion Steve. After discussion, Lion Steve offered an amendment to the motion to pay the registration less the amount (estimated, if necessary) for meals and room. Lion Duane seconded the amendment. The amendment passed with two against and an abstention. The amended motion then passed.
Lion Dean asked about the sweet corn and bologna feed for the Youth Camp. We didn't do it because it coincided with work at ISU Dining. Our next meeting will be 8 September 2003 at the Charles Lloyd home. Lion Dean moved to adjourn, seconded by Lion Jean, and we adjourned at 8:25 pm.

Sandy Jacobson will have the 325 chickens she is growing for us butchered 3 September 2003. She would appreciate as many Lions as possible buying those chickens for their own use at $5 to $6 each.
