Call to Order: Lion Boss Candy Schoen led us in Friday’s meeting. Lion PP Mike
Hicks provided us with the invocation. Lion PG Jim Peak began the Pledge of
Allegiance and Lion PP David Zarazua led us in God Bless America and Lion’s

Guests: We were honored to have a visitation from Lion Jane Sims and Lion Mark
Smith from the Upper Valley Lions Club. Lion District Governor John Feighery
brought his lovely wife Jean, Ms. Henderson and Ms. Haynes as his guests.  Lion
PG Jim Peak brought his lovely wife Julie and Lion Susan Driscoll introduced
Cassandra and Zak Castro with Prevent Blindness from San Antonio.

Health & Welfare: Lion Emma Caylor asked prayers for Lion Duane Juvrud’s

Announcements: PP Mike Hicks indicated Dinner with the Miners was a success
due to the members who sold tables for the event and for the help he received
from Lion Susan who helped him put the event together. Lion Mike also
announced that the Installation of New Officers for our club is scheduled for July
7th at the Great American Restaurant located at 701 South Mesa Hills drive. More
information on this later. PP Rick Kerns reminded members that the next UTEP
dinner theatre show is scheduled for July 19th and the program will be “South
Pacific”. Contact Lion Rick for tickets.

Program: Lion PP Rick Kerns introduced Ms. Felipa Solis, El Paso Pro Musica
Executive Director and recent cancer survivor. Ms. Solis indicated she has seen
first-hand how music is such an important part of the overall health and
wholeness of people. Ms. Solis introduced Zuill Bailey, a two time Grammy Award
cellist from El Paso. His first contact with the Lions Club was when he won a
music contest sponsored by the Lions in his community. His $1500.00 winning
check helped pay for the private lessons he received and which helped him decide
that music was the love of his life. Mr. Bailey is paying it forward by developing
music scholarships for young students and making sure music is accessible to
everyone in the community. He recently played at San Quintin Penitentiary. He
thanked our club for the funding we provided for the music scholarships.

Raffle Winners: Lions Marilu, Mike, Jim, Geovanni, Susan, Jane, Emma and
Cassandra Castro (she always wins).

It’s Great To Be A Downtown Lion!!!
