Membership and retention
continues to be a problem. With more members, we can provide more
service activities in our communities. Just ask, repeat, repeat and
repeat — don't get
discouraged. Being a Lion is great; I am very proud to be a Lion
and to be your DG.
Keep up the good work.
MESSAGE FROM DISTRICT GOVERNOR
Football season is fast approaching, which
makes me happy; my wife, not so much. As we think about the
enjoyment of watching football on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and
Thursdays, let's not fumble the ball with respect to providing
service activities to our communities. Our communities must be able
to BANK ON LIONISM as my theme says. There are far too many people,
including children, that do not have enough to eat and a safe place
to live. Let's al l do what we can to help with this problem. After
all , WE SERVE.
I have begun to visit clubs for my official DG visits and so far it has
gone pretty well — at least nobody has walked out in the middle of
my speech. If your club has not scheduled your DG visit yet, please
do so as soon as possible — call me at
304-233-1173 or email
schedule your club's visit.
The new format for the Leadership retreat should make an already
interesting event even more so this year. It will be held in
Charleston the last weekend in January, so please make plans to
attend with as many other Lions from your club as possible.
