Fellow Lions,

  I have started my DG visits and I have
enjoyed each and every club that I have
visited. The meals and hospitality have been
great. I also have attended some Zone
Meetings.
I am happy to report that the Westover Lions
Club has inducted four new members. As you
know, October is Membership Growth Month.
I have a challenge for al l District 29L Clubs—
Ask, Invite and Induct at least one new
member. I will be happy to come to your
clubs and induct three or four new members.
PDG Gary Pitcock is our new Beef Raffle
Chair and he will be sending out the beef raffle tickets to al l
clubs. Let's support the Beef Raffle. The beef is donated by PCC
Patty and Lion Paul Nutter. I also have asked PID Larry Johnson
to be our District Centennial Coordinator, which is a three year
position.

 

Remember: "JUST ASK 1"

Your District Governor Eugene L. Saunders, Sr.
