July 2017 Board of Directors Meeting

Lion Line

Windsor Manor, Wednesday Evening, July 12 -- Loren Heckathorne

During the regular meeting, it was noted that Nevada Lumber Company donated their lot to the city, where our recycling trailer now sits. The city wants to meet with our club to talk about liability insurance. This issue will be discussed at our Board Meeting.

There was a thank-you from Good Samaritan for the use of our street sign. It was noted that they raised $4000+.

It was also mentioned that we need to make a decision on advertisement in the Nevada Journal. This will also be decided during the Board Meeting.

The Nevada Lions Club held its regular Board of Directors meeting, July 12, 2017, in the Windsor Manor dining room. President Jerry Radke called the meeting to order at 7:55 pm and acted as Chairperson, with the following members present:

John Beals Jim Fenn Loren Heckathorne
Carlene Hunter Bob Hunter Charlene Jarboe
Charlie Lloyd Jerry Radke Susan Radke
Mike Seaboch

Secretary Heckathorne read the minutes from the June 14 Board meeting. Jim Fenn made a motion to approve the Minutes as read, Second by Mike Seaboch. Motion passed.

Treasurer John Beals presented the financial report for July. Jerry Radke made a motion to accept the financial report, Second by Bob Hunter. Motion passed.

There was one bill for $130 to the Chamber of Commerce. Charlene made the motion to approve that bill, Second by Jim Fenn. Motion passed. It was also noted the Windsor meals were billed at $137.50, which doesn't need Board approval. Treasurer Beals also reported that Lions International never billed the $18 subscriptions, at least not yet.

Jim Fenn reported that the scholarship presentation went well.

As mentioned above, the city wants to talk to our club about liability insurance. The club Secretary will get information on Lions International insurance for Lions Projects, while Bob Hunter will talk to Mason City Recycling to check on insurance for their trailer.

For projects, Bob said that there aren't enough Lions to do popcorn every week. Neither Elijah nor Terence was present; therefore, we didn't discuss the walking tacos idea. It was noted that the Remax Balloon Ride already has cotton candy. To sell popcorn at the ABWA Fair requires a $60 fee to rent a booth. It is too late for the peach sale idea this year. Jim mentioned that he bought a lug from Marshalltown Lions, both for himself and so that our club could check out the size and quality of those Colorado peaches.

We discussed new Lions shirts. We should buy the shirts and embroidery them, since the shirts sold by Lions International are too pricey. Perhaps the Quilt Shop can embroider? Jim Fenn is to check on purchasing shirts and where we can embroider them.

For new business we discussed the Guide for Nevada. The $400 price tag was the issue. It was asked and answered that there wasn't a lower tier at a lower price. So, Charlene Jarboe made a motion to scrap the Guide for Nevada, Second by Mike Seaboch. Motion passed.

Our upcoming Picnic was discussed. We will not have a Board Meeting that night. The Scholarship winners and their families plan to attend.

The last thing was that Jerry challenged the members to think about fundraisers.

We adjourned at 8:55.

Loren Heckathorne, Secretary
