Wayland Lions Club discusses ways to improve community, serve residents

Sep 27, 2017

The Wayland Lions Club held their September meeting at the Wayland Community Center. There were 15 members and three guests present.

President Chuck Brown called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Roger Roth gave the Invocation before the meeting broke for a delicious meal catered by Alice Hochstetler.

At the resumption of the meeting, Marianne Pattyson read the minutes and Terry Kaufman gave the Treasurer’s Report. Both Treasury and Secretary Reports were approved unanimously.

Several members helped with the Car Show on Aug. 26, on North Parkway, which was organized by Steve Miller. The proceeds were donated to Parkview Home for new LED Lighting in the hallways. Brown assisted Miller with presenting the check to Mary Quigley of Parkview home.

Brian Pattyson discussed a potential Hay Ride event, which was tabled for future consideration. Carole Martins and her guest Cathy Lee successfully ran the WACO Leo Club with 84 members at WACO High School, which was the largest Leo Club in Iowa at that time. They suggested a few alternatives to discuss forming a Leo Club with Warrior Trap Club.

Terry Kaufman reported that the Wayland Lions Club Annual Rose Sale successfully sold a total of 133 dozen roses. Deliveries were made to the recipient’s home on Saturday, Sept. 16. The proceeds from the sale are used for various charities or funding needs for the Wayland area communities.

Ron Marsh motioned to make a donation to a local resident who is in need of assistance. Stan Meyer seconded the motion, which was approved unanimously.

Marianne Pattyson made a motion to send a thank-you note to Southeast Iowa Bus, who will begin service from Wayland to Mt. Pleasant on Thursdays of each week. Special service on a different day will need an approved request for an alternate day trip. The bus will be equipped for wheelchair use. Pattyson suggested that the Wayland Lions Club not only acknowledge this new service to the Wayland Community, but give its endorsement for serving the Wayland Community with this vital need. The Lions Club members agreed that the service meets the Lions Clubs’ International Motto ”We Serve!”

Mary Quigley discussed the services provided by Parkview Home to the Wayland community and residents. Quigley and Brown discussed; through a few examples, the record keeping and other requirements to meet the needs of the residents and to conform to state and federal regulations.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:45 p.m. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, Oct. 17, at the Wayland Community Center.
