The Wayland Lions Club held their September meeting at the Wayland Community Center. There were 15 members present and three guests.

President Chuck Brown called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m. and led the Pledge of Allegiance. Roger Roth gave the Invocation before the meeting broke for a delicious meal catered by Alice Hochstetler.

At the resumption of the meeting, Lion Marianne Pattyson read the minutes and Terry Kaufman gave the treasurer’s report. Both treasury and secretary reports were approved unanimously.

Old Business: several members helped with the Car Show on Aug. 26, on North Parkway, which was organized by Steve Miller. The proceeds were donated to Parkview Home for new LED Lighting in the hallways, etc. President Chuck Brown assisted Steve Miller with presenting the check to Mary Quigley of Parkview home; Brian Pattyson discussed a potential Hay Ride event, which was tabled for future consideration; Lion Carole Martins and her guest Cathy Lee successfully ran the WACO Leo Club with 84 members at WACO High School, which was the largest Leo Club in Iowa at that time. They suggested a few alternatives to discuss forming a

Leo Club with Warrior Trap Club; Terry Kaufman reported that the Wayland Lions Club Annual Rose Sale successfully sold a total of 133 dozen roses. Deliveries were made to the recipients’ home on Saturday, Sept. 16. One of those deliveries was made by Lion Brian Pattyson to Amy Edeker, as husband and WACO Football Head Coach Chad Edeker looked on. The proceeds from the sale are used for various charities or funding needs for the Wayland area communities.

New Business: Ron Marsh motioned to make a donation to a local resident who is in need of assistance. Stan Meyer seconded the motion, which was approved unanimously; Marianne Pattyson made a motion to send a thank you note to Southeast Iowa Bus, which will begin service from Wayland to Mount Pleasant on Thursdays of each week. Special service on a different day will need an approved request for an alternate day trip. The bus will be equipped for wheel chair use; Marianne suggested that the Wayland Lions Club not only acknowledge this new service to the Wayland Community, but give its endorsement for serving the Wayland Community with this vital need. The Wayland Lions Club members agreed that the service meets the Lions Clubs International Motto, ”We Serve!”

Guest Speaker: Mary Quigley discussed the services provided by Parkview Home to the Wayland community and residents. Mary and Wayland Lions Club President Chuck Brown discussed, through a few examples, the record keeping and other requirements to meet the needs of the residents and to conform to state and federal regulations.

Mary emphasized Parkview Home’s commitment to providing the best service possible. Mary and Chuck noted that Mary should be contacted with any suggestions or ideas to improve their mission to serve the residents and community. Mary can be reached at 319 256-2775 or through the Superintendents Office at 319 256-3525.
