The meeting was held at the Golden Corral with 15 members and no guests attending. Dale Diamond gave us a final tally on calendar sales.  The total sold this year was 865 calendars that net the Springfield Noon Lions Club $5,200 in profit. We would like to thank the 54 lions that helped sell these calendars.  This will help immensely with our mission to help the blind and visually impaired.  Chris Walcher is the chairman of the Sight & Sound tickets and has begun to pass them out.  Dale Diamond served as the Tail Twister and fined absolutely nobody.  Lion of the Day was Doc Hickerson who introduced our speaker Bob Church.  Bob spoke to us about Abe Lincoln and his days as a surveyor in Illinois.  The 50/50 was won by Bill Maxey and the build a tower of ice cream contest was won by Bob Maxey !!!
