Fellow Lions,


My wife and I just returned home from the International Convention in Toronto Canada.           
It was a wonderful and informative experience. West Virginia was represented
very well . I want to take the time to congratulate the District Governors Doug
Long, Charles Sheets and Karen Hall-Dundas. I am looking forward to working with you and having a great year.
I also want to congratulate al l the new incoming officers in 29L. I look forward to meeting you when I visit your clubs.

 We have a lot of work to do and I know we can get it done. International President Joe Preston's theme is "Strengthen The Pride," in which he gives us a blueprint for stronger clubs. My theme is "Digging Deep and Moving Forward," in which I mean let's really dig into how
membership wi l l grow so we can move forward toward our goals of having stronger clubs.
   The first Multiple District Council Meeting will be July 26, 2014 in West Milford. My first Cabinet Meeting will be held July 27, 2014 in    Warwood at the Corpus Christi Center at 2: 00 pm (Sponsored by Warwood Lions Club). I will start my club visits
           August 18, 2014 at Washington-Lands Lions Club (6: 00pm) and
           August 28, 2014 at Brookhaven-Morgantown Lions Clubs (6: 00pm). Hopefully I can install a new member when I visit.

Remember: "JUST ASK 1"

 

Your District Governor Eugene L. Saunders, Sr.
