Programs - March, 2016March 7, 2019 - This was the Club's Monthly Board Meeting. The Minutes of this meeting were prepared and placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment.
March 21, 23016 - Our speaker today was Mr. Don Gordon, American Red Cross Program Manager for San Bernardino County. Lion Ken B., who is a Red Cross Volunteer, arranged this program. Mr. Gordon Spent 30 years as an Orange County Fire Authority Paramedic. As a retiree he decided he wanted to continue his service so he volunteered with the Red Cross. After some time with the Red Cross he accepted a job with them and became the San Bernardino County Program Manager and has been doing this for the past 6 years.
The Red Cross is composed of 94% volunteers. Their goal is to prevent and/or alleviate human suffering during disasters. They provide shelter and food for those in need. They spend a great deal of time preparing for disasters such as earthquakes and El Ninios. The Red Cross works with community partners to teach how to serve victims of all types of disasters. They teach how to shelter and feed those in need.
Our own Lion Ben B, is part of a local disaster action team. They provide emotional assistance, shelter, food and recovery assistance to those in need.
The Red Cross reaches out to other groups, organizations and communities for help and provide training. The Red Cross reaches out to all service clubs (like Lions), churches, communities and any other service organizations interested in participating. Mr. Gordon offered to conduct classes for our Club , if we are interested.
Lastly, he cited the Waterman (San Bernardino) shootings as an example of where the Red Cross provides help in emergency times. The Red Cross was on site almost immediately after this terrorist attack to offer aid to those impacted by it.

Other Items Worthy of Mention:Does this fellow look vaguely familiar??? His name is "Pistol Pete Eaton" and the picture was taken on October 26, 1860. I think he must be a relative of a member of our Club - can you guess who???
Pistol Pete could throw a coin in the air and put a bullet through it before it hit the ground.
