Our Club Committee Officers
Lion Tamers are in charge of and responsible for the club’s property.
Their job is to make sure that the flags, gong, gavel and badge boards
are properly placed, that the standard organization chart is displayed
conspicuously at every meeting; and that all materials are properly
distributed. They are to assist the past presidents as the official
greeters, always welcome all guests and see that places are provided
for all.
Tail Twisters shall maintain harmony, and encourage good feelings,
life and enthusiasm in the meetings. They shall impose and collect the
fines at the meetings (and shall use their best judgment when doing so).
Much of the success of the meetings will depend upon their
resourcefulness in promoting fellowship, fun and laughter, making the
members forget, for a time at least, their business and any worries they
may have.
