A Message from District Governor Linda Leasure

Konnichiwa Fellow Lions,

Welcome to our new 29L web site.   I hope you find it user friendly and easy to navigate. Lion Brandon Chadock from the Sistersville Lions Club has been working hard the past few months to redesign our web page.  A big thank you to Lion Brandon! The web site is still being added to daily. If you have anything to add please let us know.

I've just returned from Fukuoka, Japan where I had the pleasure of watching Chancellor Bob Corlew become our new International President.  I bring greetings from IP Bob and his wife Dianne. Our new International President is from the state of Tennessee and has chosen as his theme "New Mountains To Climb".  My theme this year is "Insuring Our Future".  Both themes combined serve us well.  As we look ahead to our next 100 years there are many mountains ahead of us but to insure the future we need to work hard to make sure Lions across the world continue to serve our communities.

I hope to start club visitations soon!  Please call or email me as soon as possible to arrange your club visit.   I know several zones are planning a joint DG night which I appreciate.

I look forward to working with FVDG Leeann Welch and SVDG Gary Pitcock.  Together we're going to work hard to make this year a memorable one as we enter the new Centennial.

Finally, a heart felt thank you to IPDG John Wensyel and his beautiful wife Mary Kay.  IPDG John has been a wonderful mentor and friend. We worked together to promote Lions in our district and we had "fun" doing it!

Thanks for all you do!
DG Linda Leasure

Don’t let the fun stop here.
