Who won the pot Tuesday, July 7? Not badge No. 8, of course. Neither did Tom Woods, Badge 19 Robert Bahn, No. 39 nor anyone else. Perennial winner and club president Ron McCormick, No. 48, was the winner.
The drawing occurred after President McCormick called the meeting to order at 6:30 a.m., Lion Bill Dickens served as tail twister, Lion Larry Hinck led the pledge and Lion Pat Snodgrass the prayer.
Everything in order. Well,, not quite.
Guest was Kellie Kissinger, wife of Lion Donnie and mother of Lion Clinton.
The program was a presentation by Drs. Jim Washam and Matt Hill of the Arkansas State University College of Business on the new “Center for Treasury Management” at ASU.
Dr. Washam explained that the Center for Treasury Management is fairly new to the university and is designed to help students majoring in corporate finance.
Washam said ASU is one of approximately 40 universities in the US that offer studies in corporate treasury management and he said ASU students are “on a level playing field in the studies with students of other universities in the US.
Both Washam and Hill are ASU graduates.
The ASU officials and the program were introduced by Lion Charles Hartwig, program chairman for July.
Lion Snodgrass reminded club members they can bid on the Lions pin collection of former Lion Jim Elbert. The Elbert family offered the collection to the club as a fund raiser with the money going to Lions World Services for the Blind and Mid-South Lions.
Flags were successfully flown during Independence Day weekend.
Long-time visitor and friend of the club, Jerry Casteel, sent a couple of bags of items for the 2016 Car Show. Early start that maybe the rest of us ought to follow as well.
Thanks Jerry, hope you read this. He also has helped with technical problems in the past.
