Fellow Lions,

 Well, it's hard to believe that half of my year as your
District Governor is over. It's been a great experience.
Lion Ellen and I are looking forward to our
second half.
Our District Conference is coming up soon. Let's
make it a great event. I am asking every club in
29L to attend and give to our Parade of Checks. The
Conference will be held March 14th, 2015 at the
McClure Hotel in Wheeling.
I hope to see you there.
Now, I would like to talk about our membership in
29L. We are -15 members in the month of December.
We had a great first quarter and somehow we
lost sight of our objectives, so let's roll up our
sleeves and get back on track. Remember: "Just Ask 1"!
Lion Ellen, District 29L Peace Poster Chairperson, would like to thank all
the children and clubs that participated in the LCI Peace Poster Contest.
There were many fine entries. The winner chosen is Nicole Scarpa, A 6th
grader at Vandevender Middle School. The title of her poster is "Let Peace
Carry The World." It was submitted by the Parkersburg Lions Club, Kevin
Klem, president. Congratulations to Nicole and the Parkersburg Lions
Club. Your entry was submitted to LCI for future consideration.

Remember: "JUST ASK 1"

Your District Governor Eugene L. Saunders, Sr.
