Call to Order.  Lion Boss Mike Hicks called the meeting to order.  Lion Carlos
Kaplan gave the Invoication.  * led the Pledge of Allegiance.  Lion PP David
Zarazua led us in God Bless America and the Lions Roar.  
Guests.  Lion Mac Snodgrass introduced his guests, the speaker Juli Porflit and
her Mother, Jamie Wiggs.  Lion Abernathy came as a guest.  Mrs. Enedina
Snodgrass also came as a guest.  Lion Nate Chaney brought his guest Kim Ladish
to our meeting.  Great example for our members Nate!

History Lesson:  Although our resident Historian Neil Siegel was not in
attendance.  I thought a little bit of trivia about Columbus Day would be nice to
share.  Columbus Day has only been officially recognized since 1937 by Congress
during the Roosevelt Administration with some heavy lobbying by the Knights of
Columbus.  They were looking for a role model for their Catholic children to look
up to.  Columbus fit the bill.

Announcements.  The Golf Tournament is approaching and we need to have as
many holes sold and as many gifts and items available for the auction.  This is a
major fundraiser and we could all be a part of its success.  Contact Lion Boss
Mike for more information.

Health and Welfare.  Lion Annette Norch has had some foot issues.  We wish her a
speedy recovery.  It was great seeing Lion Lavonne Newman back at our
meeting.  Please let Lion Emma Caylor know if someone you know is in need of
our Prayers or attention.

Program:  Juli Porflit, MSLS, EPISD Elementary School Teacher of the Year 2018
to 2019 from H.R. Moye Elementary School spoke about creating a great
environment for children to learn and especially to read.  She showed us a
PowerPoint of several reading stations she had set up for her students.  The
stations included a reading tub with remote controlled bubbles, a reading
teepee, a reading tree, a couch, and many other options.  She was able to do this
creatively with her own finances.  Her hunting ground for these items is
primarily flea markets and swap meets.  She set up displays to encourage
reading on different subjects.  She also discussed the concept of responsible
reading and fake news.

IT IS GREAT TO BE A MEMBER OF THE EL PASO DOWNTOWN LIONS CLUB!
