The menu for the ACBL luncheon at the upcoming conference and convention on Wednesday was discussed, and the menu will be tomato salad, fried chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Lion Adam Ruschival agreed to find a speaker for the program. There will also be an election of officers at the luncheon.

The price of the luncheon will be $27.00 prereg. and $29.00 at the door.

ACBL will be sponsoring the Scholarship Support project as a Pearl Sponsor again this year in the amount of $1,000.00. Lion President William Benjamin encouraged everyone to ask for help from their local Lions Clubs for this project.
Lion President William Benjamin stated that he will identify the nominating committee before the next board meeting. He also said he would like anyone who plans to run for an office to be aware of the duties and responsibilities and that attending the monthly conference calls should certainly be a requirement for holding office. Lion Carla Ruschival volunteered to distribute copies of the ACBL Constitution in print, Braille, cassette, and e-mail.
Realizing no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
