HAPPY DOLLARS: TT Bob “Hatchet Man” Acker__________________________
Tail Twister Bob Acker went easy on the group today during the Happy Dollars and Fines segments. Among those happy folks was Lion Paul Tremblay for some good advice he received from PP Roger Stebleton, PP Walt Simmons for feeling good again, Lion Mike Carleton, our Leo’s advisor, for classes winding up at the high school and a fantastic trip abroad, PP Van Willsey for his daughter getting engaged, Lion Ron Black for a recent trip to Branson, MO and PP Gary Robinson in the memory of Lion Jim Nelson.
Prez Rob took the role of our speaker program and gave an insightful look at the County’s voucher program for the ‘don’t call them homeless’ population in our city. The County voucher program provides housing for up to 28 days in local motels. However, ordinances, codes , and CUP requirements were not always complied with, or in some instances were non-existent in a lot of cases. Steps are being taken to ensure compliance going forward and alleviate some of the drain this voucher program has brought on our City resources and residents alike. Great program! Give that man a Lions coffee cup!
