Programs - November, 2016:November 7, 2016 - This Meeting was the Club's Monthly Board Meeting. The Board Meeting Minutes were placed on the Club's blog for everyone to review and comment. A motion was made during the November 21st meeting to accept the Board Meeting Minutes as presented.
November 21, 2016 - Unfortunately we did not have a program for this meeting. Committed programs do, unfortunately get cancelled. But, fortunately, we had many other things to discuss. In our last meeting we had a proposal to share our mailbox eyeglass collection point with the Ontario Host Lions. Ontario Host offered to have the mail box powder coated and new decals put on it. Lion Joey stated that he had a powder coating company do work for him and he could see what they would charge us to powder coat the mailbox. Many members objected to sharing the mail box and favored Joey's getting information to have it done by our Club. It was decided to wait for Lions Joey's information before making the final decision.
During our discussion of Club membership Lion Ken Myers stated he had been approached by a teacher from one of our local schools and they discussed starting a LEOs Club for their 7th and 8th graders. The Club is very interested in starting a LEO Club and after much discussion it was decided we would pursue getting it started. Our newest Lion, Lion Joey had been a LEO and volunteered to take the lead in making this happen.
