A copy of all nominations and resolutions accepted will be circulated to all Clubs in sufficient time for them to submit any amendments to resolutions.The District GLT and District GMT teams are a little worried about leadership and membership growth in our district. We started out on July 1st with 1289 members and 3 months later we’re still at 1289. Now don’t get us wrong, we are happy we are holding our own but growth is stagnant and needs to change. We are all asking you to make an effort this year, look to your family members and show them how much fun it is being a Lion. Yes it is a tough job but where else can you go to have this much fun.

District Governor David Skillin
