Windsor Manor, Wednesday Evening, November 12 -- Loren Heckathorne
The Nevada Lions Club held its regular Board of Directors meeting, November 12, 2014, in the Windsor Manor dining room. President Bob Hunter called the meeting to order at 8:00 pm and acted as Chairman, with the following members present:
John Fenn Jerry Radke Loren Heckathorne Bob Hunter Jayson Kingsbury Paul Malsom Willy Morfitt Susan Radke
Secretary Loren Heckathorne read Minutes from the Oct 8 Board Meeting. Motion was made by Willy Morfitt, Second by Jerry Radke to approve the Minutes as read. Motion passed.
Treasurer John Beals was not present, but he sent the Financial Report. Motion made by Jerry Radke and Second by Jayson Kingsbury to approve the financial report. Motion passed.
Jerry Radke gave a report on Kidsight. The Nevada Lions did vision screening for Lil' Cubs, Head Start, and Pre-School. Some of the Head Start children were at the Lil' Cubs building and some were at the Elementary School. In all, 103 children were screened. There was discussion of writing an article for the newspaper, but we may wait until we get the screening results. There was no motion on this.
Paul Malsom gave a report on Halloween. He wore the Lions costume. They were located at the Chamber Office and there were lots of children served. It was noted that some of the children were too old for a trick-or-treat event, but were served nevertheless.
Doing another I.S.U. Dining fund raiser was suggested and Susan Radke will look into this.
The Kiwanians rented our grill for an outdoor Kiwanis Days event. The flame was turned all the way up and some parts weren't even lit. It was returned with soot on it. Jim Fenn talked to the Kiwanians about this and suggested they need to cover two sides when using it outdoors.
For eyeglasses collection, Willy reported that he picked up about 50 pairs of glasses, mostly from the box at the State Bank.
Paul and Steve Jordening are in charge of the Christmas program for Dec 10. The planning for this is still to come. Paul requested the Lions Widows list.
There were three bills of account: $29.66 to Bob Hunter for Sacks, $5.75 to Jerry Radke for Kidsight postage, and an unknown amount to Charlene Jarboe for Halloween candy. Motion to pay the bills was made by Susan Radke, Second by Jayson Kingsbury. Motion passed.
Jerry reported on the 9MC Cabinet meeting. There is an emphasis on the Mid- Winter Conference since the International President will attend. The International President Joe Preston is originally from Marshalltown, which is part of 9MC; therefore, the 9MC District officers want a good turnout from the 9MC clubs. The Mid-winter Conference will be at the Des Moines Airport Holiday Inn on January 9 and 10.
President Hunter adjourned the Board Meeting at 8:26 pm.
President Hunter sent an e-mail on Thursday, Nov 13, noting that we forgot to approve our annual Christmas Gift Baskets. This was voted and approved via e-mail. On Monday, Nov 17, President Hunter announced that there were enough favorable votes to spend $1000 on 20 Gift Baskets at $50 each.
Loren Heckathorne, Secretary
