Following the installation of officers, Lions’ 1st Vice- President, Steve Larink presented the Board agenda and moved directly into the Board of Directors meeting.  During the meeting information was shared regarding  the recent Ox Roast project, the Turtle Derby, Rose Day, the Lions’ participation in the Relay for Life, funding requests, and eyeglass assistance applications.  Other business included reports from the secretary, the treasurer, and standing committee chairpersons.

Due to the fact that during July and August the general meetings of the Lions’ Club are picnics and not conducive to general business meetings, the next two Board of Directors’ meetings will be held on Monday, July 22  and Monday, August 26 at 7 p.m. at the service center  All members are encouraged to attend.  The next regular Club meeting will be the Club Picnic on July 23.

The Three Rivers Lions Club is always seeking new members.  If you are interested, contact any Lions Club member.
