Jerry reported that the paper truck went out. He had a telephone call about a problem with the ramp, which Jim fixed. The load weight was unavailable.

For eyeglasses, Willy reported that he collected 125 pair plus 6 hearing aids, but he hadn't taken them to Ames, as yet.

There was an Odyssey of the Mind report. Our Lions Club should receive $546.75, where Wednesday has 15.8 hours and the other 3 days have 15 hours each.

Charlene hasn't contacted the Youth Exchange yet.

Our scholarships recipients are Dan Keelen (Malliet) and Mackenzie Garret (McDaniel). Note that the school chose our top line person for each scholarship. Jerry reported that the McDaniel scholarship began in 1984 and the Malliet scholarship began in 1991.

For the peach sales, Jim created a flyer and set the prices. Our cost is $12.75 Flat and $22.75 box. He noted that we may have extra delivery cost for low sales - but, maybe not if our peaches are delivered with Marshalltown's. He suggested that we should sell more than 3 pallets, just to be sure. Collect money when sale is made: $18 per flat and $29 per box.

We had quite a discussion on RAGBRAI, which is July 25. Jim is working with Fareway manager Wayne Lamoureux on a refrigerated facility. We need 900 pounds of mix. Is it cheaper by the case? We should thin out batter and make smaller pancakes, so that 3 can fit width-wise on the grill. There was talk about getting a dispenser for pancakes. And, I have a note about a refrigerated truck.

The firemen have 20 tables and chairs, but we want more. The grills and other items will take up some space in the fire station. It was mentioned that there is an outlet problem and there is no longer a kitchen to use. We will have inspection before we start?

Farm house catering -- Gatherings -- could heat sausage? Buy the sausage from Burke's. We need to use patties, since they don't make links. Fareway also wants to sell us sausage. Terrance can get it from Burke's dirt cheap for $1.50 per pound. A box is 10 pounds and has a count of 80 patties, which are 1/8 pound each.

Jerry talked about Warren Coleman awards #d#e we have 2 of them to give out. Jerry already received one nomination. He requested that our Lions members should email additional nominations to him.

We adjourned, at 9:38.

Loren Heckathorne, Secretary
