Lion President Loren read a letter from DG Herman Kopitzke asking for an additional donation to the Iowa Lions Foundation.

Lion Dean moved that we send another $100 to the Iowa Lions Foundation earmarked for the "Coming to your Senses" program. Seconded by Jim Perkins and approved. Lion Steve moved that we add $33 to the donation if we can apply everything we've given this year towards a Warren Coleman award. Lion Susan seconded and the motion carried. Lion Jerry will check to see if this is possible and when we have to designate a recipient.
