   Volume 78   Issue 1     Reporter  John Feighery        July 5, 2019

Lion Boss Marc rang the bell to open our July 5, 2019 meeting at precisely 12:
15 pm. This was his first meeting as our club President. The prayer was offered
by Lion Vice President Susan, and Lion Carlos led us in a thundering rendition
of “I’ve been working on the railroad.” It was a windy day, and the chandeliers
at the El Paso club swung back and forth. Lion Emma reported that all is well.
There was no history lesson because Past President Neil was at a loss for
words. Your reporter’s guest was his trophy wife Jean. Lion Mac’s guest was
his wife Maria Elena Garcia de Snodgrass. Lion Rick reminded us of the UTEP
Dinner Theater performance on 7/18/19. He passed around sign up sheets for
the Fort Lauderdale Christmas Pageant performance opening 11/29/2019 at
Fort Lauderdale Florida. Lion Rick Schoen attended the meeting wearing a suit
with long pants. Lion “Roger That” Nichols called from Oklahoma saying he
wished he was here. Lion Vic read his announcement that Lunch with the
Miners has been extended through the second meeting of August. He has lined
up some great speakers from UTEP. PDG Jim announced that he had raised
millions of dollars for UTEP. Immediate Past President Mike was fined for
bragging about the latest golf achievement by his son. Lion Lamont reported
that next year’s parade theme is “Bobbleheads”, and that our float is half way
finished. Four of the bobbleheads will depict Past Presidents Hicks, Medrano,
Schoen and Feighery. Our program was presented by Holloman Air Force Base
Colonel Hezekiah Jet, who spoke about the F007 mach three fighter presently
under development. These stealth aircraft will only cost $1,000,000 per copy.
The end of his presentation was highlighted by a Thunderbird flyby. Lion Neil
had no questions for the speaker, but Lion Bob told the speaker about his
experience in the Air Force. Lion Secretary / Treasurer Annette requested that
registration forms for the district meeting in Pecos be returned as early as
possible, as space is running out. She congratulated all members who have
paid their dues one month in advance. Lion Tail twister Pat took in $350 for the
drawing. There were seven winners, but your reporter was not one of them. At
$95 Lion John Eger topped the bids for rhubarb pie donated by Lion LaVoyne.
There being nothing more for the good of Lionism, so Lion Boss Marc gonged
the meeting to a close at 12:30. Wait. This must have been a nightmare. We
had no meeting on July 5, 2019. Oh well, remember…
It’s great to be a Downtown Lion.

Thank you to the
Reporters for 20
