When you come in for meetings, don’t forget to purchase your 50/50 drawing tickets.

PDG Len updated us on the Alpine fire victims event yesterday. Apparently our club and members donations of $400 covered the cost

of the BBQ and drinks. Nearly 200 fire victims attended in addition to the Lions there to assist them with their needs.

Lion Dick Nasif called PP Bill Sturgeon to the podium thanking him for his 7 years of working on getting our foundation changed over from a private foundation to a public charity. It seems that will happen although the formal letter hasn’t been received yet. This change will mean how our foundation handles and distributes funds… all for the better. Thank you both for your tireless work to make things better for our foundation.

1st Veep Chris has now challenged TT Bob Acker to wear a tuxedo to a meeting. Bob didn’t feel Chris’ donation was large enough at $550 and so has declined…….for the time being!

    About a conversation between a biker and GOD. God granted the biker one wish and the biker asked for a highway between the continental US and Hawaii so he could ride his bike there. GOD felt this wish was too materialistic and the logistics would be a nightmare so asked the biker for a 2nd wish. The biker asked GOD to make him understand women and why they think, feel and act as they do. GOD reacted by asking the biker if he wanted 2 or 4 lanes on that new highway.
