September President's Message:

The Ball Drop is rapidly approaching and our effort to sell tickets to the public has been a miserable failure. The rain gods have not smiled upon us. We have made two attempts to set up and sell tickets and we have been rained out each time. This is our largest money maker for the year and we are behind on sales. Everyone please make an effort to sell your tickets.

We are still looking for someone to replace Sue Sands. This is a job we can teach you to do and it is not difficult. Give it some thought and let me know. Please continue to keep Sue Sands and Loretta Skinner in your thoughts and prayers.

Lion Delores and I attended the 31-N District Convention on 8/24/14 in Clinton, N. C. The convention elected Al Greene as District Governor on the first ballot and Irwin Siegelwax as the 1st Vice District Governor. Both of these folks will be in attendance at our Christmas party on 12/1/14. They will take official office in July 2015.

On 8/26/14 Lions Dave Ashley, Lisa Novarro, Delores and Archie Barringer held our first public vision screening. Although the thought was in the right place the attendance was not. We had a total of 0 people to screen. We will do it again on September 22, 2014 and we will need two folks to help. Delores and I will be out of town. Also on 8/26/14, Lions Ron and Joan Fracalossi, Delores and Archie Barringer went to Wrightsville Beach Lions for a Prowl only to find they did not meet that evening. Returning home I checked the District 31-H Directory to find they do meet the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month. We are looking into what went wrong.

Point of interest: as of 3/31, Lions Clubs International had 1,380,751 members in 46,430 clubs and 757 districts in 208 countries and geographic areas.

In a never ending search for a money making project, I have come up with one we can do. Based on the notes from the Oglesby Texas Lions we need to hold a Rattlesnake roundup. They rounded up 130 snakes and made money. Give this one some thought.

Thank you for the privilege of serving you and the North Brunswick Lions Club.

Archie Barringer II
