ANNOUNCEMENTS/GOOD OF THE ORDER:
.Sec Paul W reported that Lions Camp Jack will be held July 2-7 with the fishing at Lake Cuyamaca set for Thurs July 6th. See Ron Black for a volunteer opportunity to help teach the kiddos how to fish.
.Pres Rob has set up a couple of speaker programs for July (see Upcoming Programs section)…Treas Paul T reported on the financial health of our club. As of the end of May, we were minus #3500 from the budget goals but he expects we will finish to fiscal year flush due to a couple of line-item increases.
.Treas Paul T also reported there will be no Lions Tribute Day at the City of Hope this year. He is researching a company that will donate a matching grant to increase our annual donation to the City of Hope.
.And finally, Treas Paul asks that all Vice Presidents complete their committee chair assignments and give him their names so he may complete the new directory.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU
