LaPorte Lions action, November 2017

LaPorte Lions met Nov. 14, 2017, at Best Western Inn. Boss Lion Paul Marsh led the Pledge of Allegiance and Sandra Provan offered prayer. Barb Smeltzer introduced guest Diane Spoljorik. The minutes of the Oct. 9 meeting were approved. Doug Buell gave an approximate financial report. He said Candy Days raised $200.

Marsh said the eyeglass mission to Mexico is Feb. 17-24, 2018. Secretary will call those who owe dues. The Leos will work the concession stand for Pop Warner football Nov. 18; Marsh will help.

A motion to spend up to $50 for poinsettias for the float for the Santa Parade was made by Doug Buell, seconded by John Straub; the motion was approved.

Kidsight screening will be done at St. Paul’s and Church of God preschools Nov. 17, with Marsh, Provan and Smeltzer working.

New Business: A Huntington’s Disease patient in LaPorte cannot get into and out of his home without assistance. A lift, which is no longer needed, has been donated and a contractor will move it from its present location and install it at the patient’s home for $1,200. Provan moved to spend that amount, seconded by Ralph F. Howes; the motion was approved, subject to the contractor being licensed in LaPorte.

Marsh said the Indiana Lions Foundation does matching grants and encouraged members to buy Lions license plates. He will contact the Salvation Army about ringing the bell.

Lions Alert: The last new units have been installed. There is a problem with answering machines interfering with the signal. Ken Schnable will see if he can program a delay. A motion to buy five more new units was proposed by Howes, seconded by Tom Ruda; the motion was approved.

Tailtwister Schnable netted $5.50. The next meeting is Dec. 12, 2017.
