Club News:

May was a busy month and June promises to be busier yet.  Upcoming events include a Lions Mint sale,

the Vintage Car Show Barbeque, Journey for Sight (rained out in May), the Community Days Barbeque, and our annual Awards Banquet.  Events in May included 15 hours and $70 in materials to complete the painting of the Cooper Pavilion roof in Big Flats Community Park, course marshals for the Susan Komen Walk, and 3 days manning our Coffee tent at the Campbell rest area (raised $500+ for Community Service Fund!).  The efforts or our club were recognized by 8 year old Sara Lovell, who drew a fine poster for us.  The poster was presented at our May meeting and will be preserved in our Club archives.  Also at our May meeting, Justice Charles Wood outlined the NYS Court System and described activities in the Big Flats Town Court.  King Lion Gary Bernhardt presented Service Awards to Lion Lance Muir for 10 years and Lion Al Redner for 15 years.  He also presented Lion Mary Ann Balland the 2 Member Key Award for sponsoring two new Lions.  Congratulations Lions!  Two Big Flats Lions attended the MD-20 Convention at Binghamton on May 3-5.  They were Lions Rita Dery and Donna Barto. 

 

Board Action:

Community Days Float – Lion Al Draht reported that he had received permission from the Elmira Lions Club to use the Lion and that we would have to provide insurance to cover its value of $20,000.  There will also be two “Seeing Eye Dogs in Training” lead by Patricia and Allen Caldwell following the Lion.  Sales Tax Vendor – Lion Norval Johnston reported that application had been made to the NYS Department of Taxation & Finance with an effective date of June 9th 2002.  Lion Don Willams presented the Treasurer with a $28 check for recycled printer cartridges.  Pins from Lions Cox and Jacobus – Lion Al Draht is to make a display of the pins and duplicates will be given to Camp Badger for the pin auction on Lions Service Day.  $100 was donated from Community Service Funds to Empire State Speech & Hearing Clinic for camper supplies.  Thank you notes were received from IPDG Jim Killam for support resulting in 100% DG Award, Boy Scout Troop 87 for donation, and Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind for $200 donation.

 

Phone and Email Changes:

Lion John Farr’s new email address is jnfarr@earthlink.net   Note: The Website will also be moved once the proper conversions are made, and members will be notified.

Happy birthday wishes go out to Lions Rita Dery, June 11th, Gene Herber, June 17th, Wolfgang vonSulecki, June 21st, and Bryan Foster, June 22nd.

These positions are coordinated with the BBQ schedule. There shouldn't be any conflicts.

Boy Scout Troop 87 is manning the two water stops. One at the Fire Hall and one at the finish line.

The New York State Police will be doing traffic control on State Route 352.

The Chemung County Sheriff's Department will provide a police escort for the lead runners around the course.

The State Department of Transportation will loan us four "Be Prepared to Stop" signs for the event. I will place them at the Maple St - Winters Rd turn, at the Bridge St -Maple St intersection, and on Rte 352.

The race will start at the south end of River St. River St will act as a chute taking the runners onto Rte 352. They will run on the left side of Rte 352. The lead runners benefiting from the police escort will then turn left onto Winters Rd and follow the normal traffic flow around the remainder of the course. Runners who fall behind and all walkers will remain on the left side of the road facing traffic. They will remain on the left side of the road until they make the fourth left hand turn which will take them onto Main St. Once on Main St they will cross over to the right side of the road. This will set them up for the right hand turn at River St. to the finish line.

Course Marshals do the best you can. If the runners cannot cross Main St immediately tell them to work their way to the right side as traffic permits. This holds true especially for the walkers. This will also be mentioned to them at the beginning of the race. 

The Police escort may not make the final turn onto the north end of River St. Course Marshal at this turn be prepared to allow him to go either way at his discretion.

The runners will show their race number to the cashier for their chicken dinner. The cashier may want to make some kind of discernable mark on the number for validation. Runners drink lots of liquids after a race. Be prepared for refills! We will borrow some 6 gallon containers from the Wineglass Running Club for water and Gatoraid under the south end of the serving tent. 

You will be loaned a Course Marshal T shirt for the race. (I want them back for next year!) You will look "official." Point the runners in the right direction if you are not busy directing traffic. 
 

Thanks,

Lion Gene
