The secretary presented the following bills: (1) Lions Clubs International (supplies and dues for 40 members) = $583.37 and (2) City of Nevada (Gates Hall rent for 6 meetings) = $144. Lion Duane moved to pay the bills. Seconded by Lion Loren and approved.
Lion President Joel passed around a copy of District Governor Jan Whaley's July newsletter. There was a good report on the 4th of July parade. Lion Dean drove DG Jan in Harold Brinkmans's convertible. Lion Jean moved to give Harold two free Chicken BBQ tickets for the use of his car. Lion Jim seconded and the motion passed. Lion Secretary Jerry will write him a "Thank You". The Lions Club float was featured on the front page of the Nevada Journal with Lion Susan Radke customed as a lion and members of the baseball team our club sponsors riding on the float.
Lion Jerry will bring Everett Carman's "Lion of the Year" plaque to Family Night this coming Wednesday. Lion President Joel will call Everett's widow, Jean, to make arrangements for a presentation of the plaque. Lion Dick moved to send a memorial of $25 to the Israel Hospice House in honor of Lion Everett. Seconded by Lion Jean and approved.
Lion Jean reported that nine Lions worked 90 hours serving meals at ISU for a conference. The fund raiser should net $690. It was reported that a "Thank You" has been received from Alissa Chisholm and the Boy Scouts have picked up our old trailer from Denny Tischnor's farm.
For new business, Lion Jerry summarized the financial report for 1999-2000. Lions Dean and Duane are making arrangements to serve the Lions Youth Exchange students at the 4-H Camp near Madrid on 20 July. Lion President Joel read a letter from Dorothy Larkey requesting assistance in paying for new glasses. Lions Jean and Jim will follow-up on the request.
Plans are under way for our annual Chicken BBQ on Lincoln Highway Days. Proceeds from the BBQ will go to Community Betterment. Lion Jerry will enter our float in the parade. Jim Perkins is lining up workers for the six ISU football games this fall. Lion President Joel brought up the SCORE campaign that members had asked about. There was little enthusiasum for making a donation. However, we would be interested in organizing a work project for the park at a later date.
We need to make plans for a new meeting place and a place to store our supplies and equipment after November. Dean has reserved the meeting room at the State Bank. Thirty members in this room will be a little tight. The churches are another possibility but we probably would have to change meeting nights. The Masonic Hall also was suggested as an alternative. Lions Joel, Charlie, and Dick will meet to study the various possibilities including changing meeting nights.
Lion Treasurer Dean is running low on check blanks. Lion Charlie moved to order new check blanks. Seconded by Lion Dick and approved. Lion Charlie moved to adjourn, seconded by Lion Dick, and we adjourned at 8:40 pm. Our next board meeting will be at 7 pm on 7 August 2000 in Lion Dean's home.

A 74 year old Nevada lady, Dorothy Larkey, needs help purchasing a new pair of glasses. Title 19 will cover the examination but she will need new lenses, probably bi- or tri-focals. She thinks her old frames can be used again. Dr. Neff said he can supply the lenses for less that $75. She got her old glasses in Ames. Lion Jan Whaley moved that we pay up to $75 of the cost if she gets them from Neff and $37.50 if she gets them in Ames. The motion was seconded by Lion Charlie Lloyd and passed. Lion President Joel Halverson will inform Dorothy Larkey of our decision.
