Our mystery Tail Twister today is none other than our dear friend of La Mesa Lions, PDG Scott Leslie. Mindi arranged this with him. His questions were very hard and we missed a lot of answers. However, we should have known the
answers since it all involved Lions Clubs. He did make a huge amount of money for our club. He also told us to go
home and study Rules, International officers, our Motto, etc. It was fun to have you join us today, Scott. Thank you.
Dr. Tom introduced our speakers today. Glynis Eckert and Pamela George have been with the Salvation Army for a long time. About 17 years ago Mrs. Joan Kroc became involved and so the Kroc Center and Salvation Army became a partnership. They have all kinds of programs for seniors, people on low budgets, medical problems. The group is
International World Wide. Their programs include Silver Sneakers, swimming, feeding people, food pantry and they
recently had a back to school program to give children school supplies. They are in dire need of volunteers, coaches, donors. There are over 3000 members. Stop in and see all the wonderful things they do for children and people of
all ages. Thank you Glynis and Pamela.
