How we served in May:
Unfortunately there were too few volunteers to do highway clean-up on May 4th. Lion Gene will contact the Leo Club at Elmira College for help with this project in future.

At the Community Kitchen Luncheon on May10 7 Lions served over 100 Meatball Subs with French Fries and other side dishes.

About 25 members of the public attended the Free Community Spaghetti supper on the 16th. There were more Lions there to work; the Board decided to table this project for the immediate future.

Although team coordinator Lion Bill was sailing around Europe we did work at the food Bank on May 10th and 24th.

The last Rest Stop for this fiscal year was held May 24-27. Lion Lance reported that $1133. was donated, after deducting expenses for supplies and the cost of 3 light weight tables (purchase authorized by the board) net income was 374.77. Many of the supplies will be used at future coffee stops. A trial of hotdog sales was held at this event and those sold out and they will be included in future events. Lion Lance thanks those who worked very much, you were greatly appreciated and the guys who set-up REALLY like the new tables.

Lion Donna has done vision screening for pre-school children at several of HH schools.

Three ramps for the handicapped have been completed so far this year by a team of 5 Lions and 2 volunteers from Habitat for Humanity

Board Action:
   o Lance was authorized to purchase 3 lightweight tables for the Clubs use.
   o The second dinner meeting for the next year will be held at the American Legion. It will be a buffet for $10.00 including set-up and clean-up.
   o President Mary Ann presented a project to plant trees at the trail head of Hibbard road and at Whitney Park on Chambers Road.
