At the Feb. 6 Lions meeting, Dwaine Heinrich introduced guest speaker Maj. Tim Nauta of the Salvation Army. Nauta said the Salvation Army started in London in 1865 by William and Catherine Booth. At the time there was a large homeless population in London needing food, shelter and clothing. In 2020, Salvation Army will be celebrating 125 years in Jamestown.

In addition to providing basic and spiritual needs, the Salvation Army will work with people to develop a plan that will hopefully result in lifestyle changes. Pathway of Hope uses goal setting that helps individuals become more responsible and improved work ethics.

Nauta said the last Red Kettle Campaign goal of $140,000 was met with $60,000 in giving from the Red Kettle locations and the balance of the goal from direct mailings. On the day the Lions members manned the Red Kettles, the amount taken in was $3,742 which was third among the local civic clubs.

Mildred Hager presided over the meeting and led with the Pledge of Allegiance. Mike Jan gave the table prayer. The next meeting will be at 6 p.m. today; however, the location has been changed to the Harold Newman Arena. A representative from the University of Jamestown will lead the group on a tour of the new arena. Prospective members and guests are welcome.
