The Jamestown Lions Club met Oct. 18 at Sabir’s Buffalo Grill. President Kathy Clemens opened the meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, and Mike Jan gave the table grace.
Jan introduced the guest speaker, Chad Pringle, James River Correctional Center warden. Pringle began his career in 1998 as a correctional officer. JRCC is one of the correctional facilities under the North Dakota Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and is considered a mediumsecurity facility.
Currently there are approximately 440 inmates and 200 employees. The most common length of sentence is two to three years, Pringle said. The focus at the center is rehabilitation by providing opportunities for change and reinforcing positive behavior. One of the responsibilities of employees is acting as role models for the inmates to follow.
In other business, the Jamestown Lions Blood Drive is planned for Dec. 6-7 at North Dakota Farmers Union. Nov. 4 is Meals on Wheels delivery. Randy Lebahn, Glen Nagel and Alex Schweitzer are scheduled to make the deliveries.
The Jamestown Lions meet at 6 p.m. the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Sabir’s Buffalo Grill. Prospective members and guests are welcome. For more information, contact Lebahn at 952-8337.
