AZALEA FESTIVAL BOAT RAFFLE
Eleven of our members and Jennifer Delong White participated in the Azalea Festival Street Fair on April 13 and 14 as we
helped the Southport Lions sell chances for the Bayliner boat which they will raffle off during Southport’s Independence
Day Celebration. The total collected by all clubs was $2,269. Southport’s expenses were $106 leaving $2163. Fifty percent
of that is $1,081.50 to be divided among the three participating clubs. Our profit from this project, therefore, is $360.50.
WHITE CANE SOLICITATION
Once again we ran into some inclement weather and a rather small number of shoppers at Kmart during our White Cane
Solicitation on March 22 and 23. Despite these obstacles we managed to collect $410. Together with a $100 donation from
one of our members, we realized a total of $510. Fourteen of our members, as well as Lion Jim Wagner’s wife Ann,
participated. A special note of appreciation goes to Lion Tillie, who set up our equipment on Friday morning, to Lion Kent
who took the equipment down on Friday evening and set it up again on Saturday morning, to Marilyn Godshall who took the
equipment home on Saturday evening, and to Lion Jim Wagner and Ann who cleaned up the tables and other supplies
afterward. They all did this to help Lion Jim Lyon whose wife Anna had a medical emergency that weekend.

The speaker at our April 1 meeting was Attorney Sharon A. Hatton. She discussed estate planning, wills, trusts, guardians,
and the proper choice of social security options. On April 15 we approved the expenditure of $200 to help pay for a bus to
transport area VIPs to and from Camp Dogwood this June.
We will be performing a vision screening at the N. 4th Street Community Health Center on May 9 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
