At Tuesday night's meeting

The members unanimously voted to send $1000 (US) to the Lions Clubs International Foundation and designate it for the Japanese disaster relief.

Five members from the Enterprise Lions Club visited and provided updated information about the Anderson Century Bike Ride that we co-sponsor with them.

We conducted the election of officers for 2011-2012.

We have an unofficial project

The idea is to find enough Lions to play kazoos while marching in a parade. So far there may be two.

Seriously, the idea is to make the point that, while we are a service club and the work we do is serious, we have a good time.

No, not these lions

Anderson Lions have a continuing project whereby individual members gather certain recyclables and bring them once each month to a meeting. They are collected by one member who takes them to the recycling center. He, in turn then brings the recycling refund back to the club. Several times a year a check is issued to the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF). 
Many of the members feel that in this manner we are fulfilling the international nature of our organization without taking the funds we raise from the local community out of the town.
As an adjunct to this effort we are able to confer one of the highest awards given to a Lions member. The Melvin Jones Fellowship is named for the founder of Lions Clubs. Anderson Lions currently have five members who are
Melvin Jones Fellows.
