Fellow Lions of District 29-L,

 

Now that summer is upon us, it is a good time to have a membership drive! Bring in some new blood to help your club revitalize your community projects! It is also a good time to plan and map out your club activities for the next year. This planning will help your club function like a well oiled machine. Remember an active club is a happy club, even if you have to drag some members kicking and screaming to your projects. Afterwards they will feel better for having given to their community.

Always remember that as a Lion you are helping make this world a better place. Giving of yourself is one of the hardest and most precious things that you can do. I am truly in awe of what the Lions of District 29-L accomplish. Even when we have disagreements, we still pull together to work for the benefit of others. That makes us all a part of a Team. And as a Team we can accomplish many things.

This is my last posting as your District Governor. I hope that you work with and help Eugene as much as you helped make this past year so special for me. Remember to get in touch with your communities and reassess their needs and what your club can do to help. Keep up the great work that you do Ė after all "here on Earth, Godís work must truly be our own."

 

Thank you for all that you do.

DG Harry Schramm

DISTRICT GOVERNOR LION HARRY SCHRAMM BIO

  I was born and raised in Huntington, WV. I grew up in the house my father grew up in - two blocks from Marshall University. As a kid my playground was the Marshall campus. I attended Marshall Lab School - a private school on the Marshall campus for helping test new teaching materials and training student teachers. I went to school there from kindergarten through the seventh grade when the decision was made to close the school and utilize the public school system to train student teachers.

I graduated from Marshall University with a degree in Physics. I continued in graduate school in Physical Science with a major in Geology. I also took courses in Accounting and Business and passed the CPA exam in 1984.

In 1985 I relocated to Parkersburg, WV and went to work for the Accounting Firm that became McDonough, Eddy, Parsons and Baylous, A. C. I am currently a shareholder in the firm. I had the great fortune to be asked to become a Lion in May 1991.

I served many years as Treasurer of the Parkersburg Lions Club. I served as President in 2004-2005. I also served one year as Secretary while we recruited someone to serve as Secretary of the club. I have served two stints as Zone Chair, one in 2006-7, the other in 2009-10. I served as Trustee to the WV Lions Sight Conservation Foundation from 2005-2010. During my twenty seven year tenure in Parkersburg, I served 15 years on the Board of Directors of the Parkersburg Art Center, including 5 years as Treasurer, 2 years as Vice President, and 2 years as President. I have just completed a 6 year stint as Treasurer of Artsbridge - an organization in Ohio and WV that helps bring Art education programs into the schools as well as raise funds to give grants to art organizations in the Mid Ohio Valley. I still serve on the Finance Committee.

I am a member of The Captain James Neale Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution.

Before its closure, our firm was Partners in Education with Desales Heights Academy and I served on the liaison committee between the firm and the Mother Superior and other school representatives. I served as President of the Parkersburg Chapter of CPA's and have chaired three committees over the years for the WV Society of CPA's. I served as chair of the Local Government committee of the Parkersburg Area Chamber of Commerce. I grew up a member of First United Methodist Church of Huntington, and attended with boyhood friends Emmanuel United Methodist Church where I played on the basketball team. After moving to Parkersburg in 1985, I have not become a member of any church, but have attended services in many of the area places of worship including: North Parkersburg Baptist, New Hope Baptist, First Lutheran, Trinity Episcopal, Good Shepherd Episcopal, St. Andrews United Methodist, St. Xavier Catholic, St. Margaret Mary Catholic, and First Presbyterian. During my tenure as a member of the Parkersburg Lions Club, the club has presented me with a Leonard Jarrett Award, a Melvin Jones Fellowship, and a Lion of the Year Award.
