President Stan reported that the club purchased 4 children’s car seats for the Teton County Health Department. The Health Department loans the seat to people in need.

New Business

Lions Steve D and Russ have been working to build our new website. Steve said the website address is Steve and Russ explained that the donor database will be helpful for fundraising and using this type of technology we may be able attract younger potential members. This web site would cost $7,500.00 to create if we were paying an outside person to build this type of program.

The group discussed that it is difficult for people presenting programs to the club when they need to use a wall for a screen. It that case it is hard for everyone to see the screen during a presentation. Terina Hill will give us a program at our meeting on February 19th on a trip she made to Jamaica. We decided to hold our meeting at the Boy Scout hall on that date. We will order pizzas for the dinner.

Other program ideas are Wendy Hammond, new school principal, the high school speech and debate class, and another presentation by Terina Hill on her trip to Gettysburg. The program committee will work on these ideas.
