Since we are the only really active Lions Club in Chemung Co. KLBob is seeking a grant of $1500. from the District so we can cover requests from all over the County.

Lion Don Williams expects a dividend on Administrative Investment Fund on June 1 of $19.50. He expects there will be around $200.00 next fiscal year to aid in paying club dues.

KLBob showed us some of the possibilities for Whitney Park that will make it accessible to visually handicapped people.

At the May 19 Board Meeting the Board voted to increase member dues to $63.00 because of the increase in NY State dues of $2.00.

The Board also voted to buy a compound Miter Saw with Folding Stand for around $700.00 for use by the ramp builders.

0N may 20th Lion Bill Powell took 661 pairs of usable glasses to the Lions Recycle Center run by the Canandaigua Lions. Also he took 3 doz. metal frames to be sold as scrap metal. Numbers of glasses collected remain about the same from year to year.

There was no dinner meeting on May 26 as we were serving coffee at Campbell Rest Area that weekend, Fri – Mon. Lion Lance will report on the success of this project at first June meeting on the 9th.
