The Crawfordsville Lions Club met Monday, Jan. 28, at the Crawfordsville Community Room at 7 p.m.
Seventeen members were present. After calling the meeting to order and leading the club in the Pledge of Allegiance, President Steve Williams called on Larry Fletcher to give the invocation.
The minutes from the Jan. 14 meeting were approved as read and the treasurer's report was given.
There were several items of correspondence. Randy Finke brought to the club's attention the death of Past District Governor Tommy Tucker of Ottumwa. There was a request for hearing aids. A thank-you note for a donation to the ICIF in memory of Jack Erwin was read.
Old Business: After the club's inquiries to the local 4-H and Leo clubs to help with the pancake supper were to no avail, WACO junior class students will be assisting in order to help with prom expenses. They will need 10 students in the morning for setup at 9 a.m. and 10 to help with supper beginning at 4 p.m. Kristine Williams, WACO senior and daughter of Lions Steve and Janice Williams, will oversee this effort.
