The Crawfordsville Lions Club met Monday, Feb. 25, at the Crawfordsville Community Room. Fourteen members and one guest, Kristine Williams, were present.
In the absence of Lion President Steve Williams, First Vice President Lion Larry Fletcher called the meeting to order and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Lion Secretary Nancy Love gave the invocation. The minutes were approved as read, and the treasurer’s report was given by Lion Treasurer Randy Finke.
Correspondence: Secretary Love read a letter from Al Olson of the Washington Club with regard to the Riverboat Foundation and their generous contribution that covered the entire cost of the digital camera.
Olson suggested that clubs could donate their pledges to KidSight. It was moved, seconded and approved to donate the club’s pledge to this cause.
Another item of correspondence was from the Iowa Youth Exchange camp, which will take place in Madrid in July. It was moved, seconded and approved to donate to this cause.
Old business: Comments from the pancake supper were favorable, although it was noted that attendance was lower than previous years. The WACO youth did a great job as helpers.
As per a request, a contribution has been made to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for a hearing aid for a member of the community.
New business: The Lions Club will be selling concessions at a car show that will take place at the ball park on June 1.
The meeting then adjourned, at which time refreshments were served by Williams.
