Over a year ago the Gilmer County Commission gave them permission to build a two-story block building between the original white frame building and the annex. By terms of the agreement, the floor at street- level was to be for the use of the Center as a supplement to the large dining hall, to be used for smaller conferences and other activities of the Center. For several years, the Lions have been collecting funds for this building since they had no permanent meeting hall. The principle source of funds were the carnivals that they sponsored each year. Another important source of funds was the sale of thousands of hot dogs and corn dogs from their portable trailer. Other sources were the sale of brooms and Christmas trees. These funds also supported their Easter Egg Hunt and their Christmas treats for every school child in the county. They hired professional block layers to put up the walls of the 40 by 60-foot two-story build- ing. Then the members took over and have done most of the work in finishing the building. Everyone who has seen the building have praised their work. Present members are William J. Osborne, President; Paige Hinzman, 1st Vice-presidem; J. J. Spurgcon, 2nd Vice-president; Lane Smith. Secretary; and Oral Cunningham, Treasurer. A number of the 30 members attended the dedication by the President and enjoyed the hot dogs and other refreshments.

It contains a 28 by 36-foot conference room, toilet facilities, storage room, office room, and one of the most complete kitchens in the county. lines J In what was described as a the investigation until the audit "surprise" audit, five state 13o- is complete.
