The Jamestown Lions Club met on Dec. 16 at Shady’s Restaurant & Lounge in the Gladstone Inn & Suites.
President Kathy Clemens opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, and Ed Anderson gave the table blessing.
Victoria Christensen was the guest speaker for the evening. Christensen, who is representing North Dakota, is preparing for the national 4-H competition on the topic of hippology - the study of horses. Hippology is an activity that can enhance learning for 4-H members by letting them exhibit their knowledge and understanding of equine science and husbandry in a competitive setting, she said. The national competition will be held Jan. 8 at the National Stock Show in Denver.
Christensen’s presentation was on horse diseases and disease prevention. The various diseases include tetanus, equine encephalitis, equine influenza, equine herpes virus, West Nile virus, rabies, strangles, equine infectious anemia and Potomac horse fever. She also talked about different preventive steps that are necessary to avoid such diseases.
On club business, Gary Speidel reported on last week’s Lions blood drive. The goal of 104 units exceeded the club’s goal.
Members thanked all those who donated blood. Members also talked about the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign bell-ringing event, which was held on Friday.
In other business, Tom Sanders won the ugliest Christmas sweater contest.
The Jamestown Lions Club’s next meeting is at 6 p.m. Jan. 5 at Sabir’s Buffalo Grill. Prospective members and guests are welcome to attend.
