Donation request was received from Camp Badger. Lions chose to donate same as in the past. Correct amount needs to be obtained from the records.
Lion William Winans suggested a joint fund raising event of the Oxford-Norwich-Sherburne Lions in order to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. A joint meeting of all three clubs will be held on January 8, 2013 at Park Place in Norwich. This event should/could be a breakfast serving event – suggested sites for this event could be VFW or the Legions.
Oxford Lions suggested that this event to be held after the Perch Derby is over as more time and manpower is available. Proceeds from this fundraiser would all go to Lions International and from there to Sandy’s victims.
Winners: 50/50 = Lion Jared Bartle + dinner = Lion Mike Mayhood
Both donated back to Lions
