Fellow Lions,

I just had my first club visit. Everything went very well . I would like to thank the Washington Lands Lions Club for a good meal and great hospitality. I also attended Zone 3's zone meeting. Zone Chair Linda Amos conducted a great zone meeting and she was very informative. All the clubs were represented and each gave positive reports.
  I would like to share with you Lions my goals
  for my year as your District Governor:
         1. Ensure that al l club officers receive adequate training for their positions.
         2. Increase membership in District 29L to plus 25.
         3. Charter a new club.
         4. Ensure that al l clubs are more visible in their communities.
         5. Ensure that al l District Officers work with clubs in their zone to promote Lionism.
         6. Have a balanced budget at the end of my year as District
Governor.
         7. To be more visible to al l clubs, aid them with problems and promote membership retention and increases
  I know these goals can be achieved with your help, so let's have a great year and increase membership.
     Here are my visitations for the months of September and I look forward to seeing you Lions of 29L.

Remember: "JUST ASK 1"

Your District Governor Eugene L. Saunders, Sr.
