Logger’s Playday Report

Concessons:  Co Chairs Larry Jones and Pete Hegg announce that preparations are going well.  They still have some need for manning the concession stands as Chris Eide and family won’t be available.

Salmon BBQ:   Mike Lytle announced that we are spared from having to serve chicken as proposed by Lion Dee Johnson.  Lion Jerry McFeeley did volunteer to catch tuna so we could serve sushi.  Mike will be arranging for Copper River Silvers to be flown from Alaska for the BBQ.  The club will pay for the airfare and Lytle Seafood will make a donation of the fish.

Rain Derby:      Over 3,000 tickets have been distributed.  It takes $3000.00 to break even so we need to sell all of these and work on the remaining 4000 tickets.

Speaker:

Today, we were visited by the District Governor and his wife, Monte and Ann Ward.  They were introduced by Zone Chairman Jim Weyrich.  Monte had worked for RCA with NASA in both Houston and Cape Canaveral.  He moved to Kalama, Washington where he has been a member of the club for over 35 years, serving twice as president, former zone chairman and current District Governor.

He spoke of his platform, The Winds of Change and it’s similarities of that of our International President, New Mountains to Climb.  We are to expect certain changes to include how voting processes are conducted, changes in the By-Laws and the Constitution, and yearly goals for current and new projects.

Most importantly, he stated how much he preferred Hoquiam Lions to the Aberdeen Lions.  (Not really, but I thought I would give any Aberdeen Lions reading this a thrill)
