Volume 1, Issue 3 Lions Newsletter October 1998


As you know our membership committeee decided to kick off a membership drive by requesting 3 prospective members' names from each Lion and sending contact letters to these individuals with our brochure and 2 guest meal tickets. We gathered names on September 23rd and would like to get more names tonight! We plan to meet October 15th at 7 p.m. at Lion Don's home to send these letters by October 17th. We will also be sending our Nevada businesses the letter Lion Jim Fenn has written.

We would like each Lion to follow this letter with 2 phone calls to answer any questions about our Lions Club, and to confirm attendance on November 11th. Of course we welcome guests to our October 28th meeting also. We're sending 2 tickets because we'd like to encourage every guest to bring a friend.

We plan to have an editorial in the Journal the week of October 22nd, and also get our street sign out to advertise the November 11th night and future "Guest Nights".

Remember: every Lion in this club is a key player in this effort. Please give serious consideration to our future. Who could refuse membership in a club with such a great bunch of people?!?

New Fundraiser

In late August, I got a call from Jeff Gillaspie, Per Mar Security Services, responsible for Special Events Staffing for the Iowa State Cyclones. Jeff wondered if the Nevada Lions would be interested in serving as ticket takers, ticket sellers, and ushers for the remaining Cyclone home football games as a fundraiser for our club. Our Lions would be paid $6/hr., minimum 3 hours, with uniforms provided (orange windbreaker and baseball hat). Two games remain: November 7, and November 21. The Board discussed this opportunity and Lion Steve Jordening agreed to coordinate the October 10th game. Lions Steve Jordening, Don Williams, Jerry Radke, Odin Christian and Everett Carman worked as ushers. We need to get their opinion of this committment, and also work the remaining two games with as many Lions as possible so that we can make a decision about the 1999 Cyclone Football Season.

Special Appreciation to Lion Everett Carman for his dedication

to our youth evidenced by his coordination of the 1999 Peace

Poster Contest.

Thank yous!
