Reports were given on the bologna and sweet corn feed for the Lions Youth Exchange students at the 4-H Camp near Luther, the training session for the Per Mar Security ISU football game ushering, and the glasses for Dorothy Larkey. Lion Bob Hobson gave a report on next year's District Convention which will be held on 16 and 17 March 2001 at Memorial Lutheran Church in Nevada.
Lion Angelo, Chicken BBQ Chair, reported on activities and plans for our upcoming Chicken BBQ on 26 August 2000. The flyers are up and publicity has been arranged. At least three Lions are needed for interviews on KASI 1430 AM prior to Lincoln Highway Days. Several Lions volunteered to take care of specific arrangements and duties. Lion Jean moved to make a $25 donation to the Lincoln Highway Days Committee, seconded by Lion Duane, and passed. There was a discussion on ads for our Chicken BBQ.
Lion Jean reported that 8 or 9 Lions have signed up to be parking lot attendants 15 - 18 August when ISU students move back into their dorms. Lion President Joel reported that the Brass Rail is raising the price of meals from $6 to $6.50 plus tax. A discussion followed on how to pay for the extra charge. There was a reluctance to raise the meal charge to individual Lions. A special fund raiser could supplement administrative funds which could offset some meal expenses. Lion Charlie moved to place the money raised from the August parking lot fund raiser into the administrative fund. Jean seconded and the motion carried after additional discussion.
Lion President Joel reported that the committee looking for meeting places after November had narrowed the choices to Memorial Lutheran Church, the Christian Church, and BECON on Airport Road. Lion Joel said he did not think BECON was a suitable meeting place. Lion Dick Smith reported that the Christian Church is available on Wednesday nights and the cost would be a donation. Lion Charlie reported that Memorial Lutheran would be available on Tuesday or Thursday evenings but Mondays and Wednesdays would not be good. Lion LaNair moved to meet at the Christian Church on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays pending approval by the Christian Church board. Charlie seconded the motion which was then approved.
Lion Jean asked about the "Adopt A Highway" program. Lion Angelo has some information. Lion Brett said he thinks they have a waiting list. Lion Jean also has information on purchasing Lions shirts.
Lion Charlie moved to adjourn, seconded by Lion Duane, and we adjourned at 8:20 pm. Our next board meeting will be on 11 September 2000 at Lion Dick Smith's home.
Secretary Jerry K. Radke
