Olds Lions hold March meeting
Olds Lions met for their regular meeting Tuesday, March 12, at the Olds United Church of Christ.
A potluck dinner was enjoyed with a main entrée of fried chicken provided by Lion Harry McGuire. Sanaria Abusour, along with Wendy Pusey, her host family representative, were special guests for the meeting.
Abusour entertained the membership and guest Johanna Crawford with facts and stories of her native country, Palestine. Along with her PowerPoint presentation, she demonstrated one of her native dances and had an example of her native dress that was lavishly decorated with colorful hand-stitched needle work.
After Abusour’s presentation, President Lion Ruth Meth opened the business meeting. The agenda included recruitment of new members, Iowa Eye Bank tissue run reports, tip might, the James Avenue Event and the annual city Easter Egg Hunt under old business. New business included President Wayne Madden’s Club Excellence Award application; nomination of officers for the 2013-2014 fiscal year, distribution of Activity Funds and discussion for a field trip to the Ronald McDonald House in Iowa City to take place in June.
Those interested in becoming Lions are welcome to attend regular meetings or may contact President Lion Ruth Meth at 319-254-2129 or firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
