Rockton Lions Club Meeting Minutes.
Thursday, January 1-29-15
The Center for Sight and Hearing

Meeting was called to order by President Kerri Wallace after an inspiring tour of the Center by Lion and President Dianne Jones. President Kerri led the Pledge of Allegiance.

The next meeting will be the Zone Meeting at the Legion on Thursday, February 5th. You can sign up online. We would like a big showing since we are hosting.
February 19th the Club will be awarding the Melvin Jones Fellows awards to four lucky recipients. Kerri would like as many of the Board Members there as possible.
We currently have $300 on account with Lions International Foundation (LIF).

Donations to LIF can be designated for:
Best use
Humanitarian Aid

Every donation gives us credit toward a Melvin Jones Fellow to award
The Melvin Jones Fellow is the highest honor a Lion can receive and there are 54 levels to achieve within the award.
Discussion regarding setting up a firm budget and budget committee occurred and most present agreed. This should be brought up before the entire club.
