President Hunter received a letter about contributions to Leader Dog. Our club will handle this in December with the other Lions Service contributions.

The Salvation Army asked if we would be interested in manning their Kettle this holiday season. We declined doing this because it would be too large a commitment in hours and people.

The Chamber of Commerce Cookie Auction was brought up. This is usually the 2nd weekend of December. We took no action on this item, but it was noted that in past years individuals in our club did donate cookies.

For Eyeglasses collection, Willy reported that he just picked up 80 pairs. For Eye tissue transfer, he reported that there are no more collections from Ames. This activity may be at an end.

Charlene has been sending out letters to bring in new members. She is sending a letter to prospective members to visit our club. Jerry Radke invited Gerald Dawley, who is in Windsor Manor and also Joe Wakeman, the I.T. person, to come and join us tonight. Neither one was present tonight.

Bob Hunter has two programs, if someone needs a program.

The Newton Lions Club is celebrating their 5 year anniversary. They invited the other clubs in 9MC to join in their celebration.

President Hunter met with the Kiwanians and the Masons about scheduling pancake fundraisers and about the use of our grills. The Chamber of Commerce will help by putting out a calendar.

ISU dining fundraisers were discussed. We are looking to do more of these. No action on this at this time.

Downtown Trick or Treat will be held on Thursday, October 30 from 5:00 to 6:30 pm. John and Charlene will organize this. Paul may attend and wear the Lions costume. We will get 3 bags of candy and it was suggested to get something other than Tootsie Rolls.

We discussed doing KidSight again this year. Both Head Start and Little Cubs are using the old Lutherans for Life building. We need to get a digital camera from the Ames Breakfast Club. Jerry will head this up again for this year, but John Beals will take over next year.

Willie Morfitt and by Charlie Lloyd both made a motion to adjourn. We adjourned at 8:42 pm.

Loren Heckathorne, Secretary
