I made an early morning visit to the Meridian Lions Club meeting. I had visited them at their summer picnic, but didn’t have my challenge coins yet, so visit number two.
Dan Ollivant is club secretary, MD secretary, Zone char. He leads the club with Rake Up Meridian, Meridian Food bank project, club food drive. Volunteers a rodeo grounds and is always ready to help.
Jerry Healy volunteered to be club treasurer when the previous treasurer stepped down. He did a great job throughout the biggest fundraiser. Talk about learning on the job! He also volunteers at most events.
Steve Geiseke volunteered to serve the district and MD as Patriotism Essay co-chair. His goal was to increase participation-looking forward to see the results. Steve was super organized.
Larry Hansen is always a ready volunteer. He organized the roadside clean up, work days at the rodeo grounds, and Salvation Army bell ringers.
Helen Johnson missed the meeting so I will have to find a photo of her. She spent a lot of time helping the new treasurer learn the process and reorganize the treasurer position. She's a great volunteer, too.
Fun times with the Meridian Lions! They even gave me a microphone!
