1987-1988President M.J. Wiens, Jr.
The president of the club in 1987-88 was M.J. Wiens, Jr., known affectionately as “Ted.” Under Ted’s chairmanship, the regular meetings were livened by a quiz program, which he instituted. His questions directed at individual members elicited few correct answers and were the source of over $25,000 in “fine” funds. The members helped Ted surpass the club’s PolioPlus goal of $115,000 by $100,000, which was a good indication of the support he received as president. Local charities were not neglected. Even though over $200K was pledged to the PolioPlus fund, $34, 000 was provided for local projects. Ted’s year was appreciated not only by the Las Vegas members, but also by District 5300. The Las Vegas Club received both the District 5300 Governor’s Award and the Club Service Award.
