Glynn County Public Schools Police Chief Rod Ellis addressed the Jekyll Island Lions Club at a dinner meeting on 7 February. He discussed safety, training and security procedures in the local school district. At the end of his presentation, Lion Howard gave him a small token of the Club’s appreciation for his talk. Chief Ellis then pulled the night’s winning raffle ticket, which was won by Lion Jim.
Prior to the dinner meeting, the Club Board met to plan future fund raising projects. First, the Club will sell cheese, moonshine cakes, and telephone books at the Annual 4-H Tidelands Nature Center Art Sale on 19 February from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. The event is scheduled at the Morgan Center in the heart of the Historic District. The other major project is production of the 2018-2019 Jekyll Island Telephone Book. Data collection, advertisement sales, and printing schedules were discussed. Work on the telephone book will begin in the summer, if not earlier. It should be noted that Lion Jim was selling the current 2016-2017 telephone book at the February meeting of the Jekyll Island Citizens Association, held earlier in the week.
