Committee Announcements
Paul announced that 5 club members will be going to Chapala, Mexico in March. "Wild Bill": covered the December Blood Drive saying that 35 people signed up and there were 2 walk ins. However there were 7 no shows. In spite of that, 24 pints of blood are available to save 48 lives. The next Blood Drive is February 9th. Joann reminded members to sign up for the District Conference held on May 17th, 18th and 19th. 
Guest Speaker Sean Scully 12-21-23
Sean Scully is the Lincoln City Manager.
Sean was hired in January of 2022. His priority on arrival was to triage the needs of the city. Having spent a good part of his first year looking at needs for specific new employees, looking at the financial needs and looking at the future growth expected in the next 20 years for Lincoln. Sean is now working on the city General Plan update. Some of the areas of interest that he mentioned were the low income property tax which pays mostly the police and fire departments, the airport which is a financial liability, but this is offset by the people the airport brings to Lincoln and provides income during their stays. He mentioned the need for a new police station, the Titan Missile Site, the fact that Lincoln pays P.G. & E. 50% more that Roseville ( why?). He said that the City Budget is now on line and reader friendly for easy access to citizens.
