6/5/14 Membership Meeting 

The Eden Lions Club met on 6/5/2014 at 912 Bethlehem with 20 members attending. 


  • President Bill welcomed back Pat Steed who has been on a 5-month trip. 
  • President Bill reminded membership that our club is helping with the Vision Van which will be here on 6/7 at Walmart. We are responsible for staffing from noon until 3pm. So far we have Pat Steed, Pat Floyd, Jim, Frank and Bill McLeod signed up to help but could use more. 
  • President Bill said that we are in need of members who can take the four campers to Camp Dogwood on 6/15. Bill will check with Pelham Transportation to see if they can do this and their charges to take campers and bring them back to Eden on 6/21. 
  • Installation Banquet-All set up. Approximately 40 signed up to attend. 


  • Tony introduced Phyllis Wharton, Director of Nursing at RCC and chairperson of the Simulation Health Care project at RCC. Ground is being broken for the simulation hospital. Particular emphasis of the program will be medication administration. The program will use cutting edge technology such as high fidelity, wireless responses by the manikin to treatments it receives. The future will lead to virtual simulation and also use of robots will come in the future. 
  • Pat Floyd reminded all the Bloodmobile is at the Y today from 2-6:30. 

Chris requested that he be allowed to act as Tailtwister at this meeting and Frank agreed to this. Chris collected a quarter from all because no one knew who wrote the German national anthem. 

Peggy won the attendance drawing and Gene failed to draw the Ace of Spades-the pot is at $177. 

Following the Pledge, the meeting adjourned.
