Secretary Jerry Radke read the minutes of the 4 August 2003 board meeting and the special board meeting on 13 August 2003. Lion Susan moved to accept the minutes of the two meetings, seconded by Lion Dean, and passed. Treasurer Dean Howell reported a checking account balance of $14,860.89. The secretary noted that we need to write a check for $50 to the Lincoln Highway Days Committee and presented the following bills: 1) Lions Clubs International for attendance awards = $57.53, 2) The Nevada Journal for Chicken Dinner advertising = $105.60, 3) Paul J. Malsom for Chicken Dinner supplies from Sam's Club = $77.53, 4) Paul J. Malsom for Chicken Dinner buns from Old Home Bakery = $38.00, 5) Smitty's Foods for Chicken Dinner supplies = $195.69, 6) Fareway for Chicken Dinner supplies = $44.62, 7) Jerry Radke for Lincoln Highway Days parade float decorations = $17.62, 8) Susan Radke for parade float banner = $80.25, and 9) Ben Franklin for parade float flag and supplies = $25.64. Lion Dick moved to pay the bills, seconded by Lion John and passed.

Lion Jerry reported that most of the bills for the Chicken Dinner fund raiser are in. A few Lions still owe for leftovers. We should net about $1000. Lion President Paul reported that Sandy Jacobson thanked the Lions and others who bought 228 chickens from her.

Lion John Wheelock reported that Lions have worked two ISU football games so far. We have enough Lions to work the 13 September 2003 game but still need workers for 4 and 18 October. Sign-up sheets will be available at our regular meetings.

Lion Susan reported that the Membership Committee has met but Lion Jean Bodensteiner has the information. A discussion followed on organizing a Leo Club for Nevada High School. Lions Charles' wife, Chris, noted that The Key Club is supported by a paid position through the school. There also is a Junior Rotarian club. It was noted that "Junior Lions" sounded better than Leo Club because of gender.

Lion Jerry reported that he had been called by the McFarland Eye Clinic to pick up the glasses that were overflowing their box. Lion Jerry took them to the Lions State Office in Ames. Who is responsible for checking the four boxes we have located in Nevada?

Donations to leader dog were discussed. Lion Dean moved to donate $100 to Southeastern Guide Dog, seconded by Lion Charles, and passed. Lion Charles moved to donate $200 to the North Central Correctional Facility (NCCF) leader puppy program, seconded by Lion Susan, and passed. NCCF in Rockwell City is holding its annual Puppy Day on 28 September 2003 from 1 to 4 pm. Lion Susan will call Julie Sexton at NCCF for more details.

Lion President Paul read a letter from the Nevada High School asking for floats in the 2 October 2003 Nevada Homecoming Parade. The parade starts at 7 pm. Do we want our float in it? Someone would need to get it set up and drive it in the parade. We'll check into it.

We need to investigate the placing of Lions signs at the entrances to Nevada. Our old signs were taken down by the city several years ago. We also need to consider what to do with the $10,000 from deceased Lion Margaret Maliet's estate. Lion President Paul wants the board to work as the committee for this project. Lion Jerry noted that he had received a call from Frankie Olson of United Way wanting to speak to our club. Our programs are filled for several months.

Our next meeting will be at John Wheelock's home on 6 October 2003. Dwight Bonham will host the November board meeting. Lion LaNair moved to adjourn, seconded by Lion Loren, and we adjourned at 8:30 pm.
