District Governor's Eye View
Dear Lions, Lionesses and Leos.
I want to thank everyone who attended our recent District Meeting hosted by the Englewood Lions Club. It was a huge success and our Special Guests PID David Stoufer and his wife PDG Rachel Nicola were a joy to hear from and have with us. PID David’s message was both inspiring as well as timely for our audience.
The Chili Cook-Off was delicious as well, with a nice diversity in recipes. Congratulations and thank you to all the chefs who prepared their delicious chili and also a special thank you to Judy and her team from Englewood for the wonderful breakfast and lunch.
I am happy to announce that we are making great strides on membership with all the new Lions who have recently joined our District. As of February 1, 2014 we are only at -17 which is an impressive gain from the -69 we started out with last July. I also happen to know of several new memberships being turned in this month.
Keep up the good work and let’s make our Lions Clubs bigger and stronger by bringing in new ideas and new projects that help us learn and grow. I wish to welcome and congratulate all our new members and thank their sponsors for joining our great organization. You have a fun and exciting road ahead as Lions and I challenge you to get active in your Club and to assist with as many projects as you can. You will be enriched by your experiences.
To all our snowbird Lions, thank you for your service to your winter communities and the Clubs you are affiliated with here in District 35-I. Without your help there would be less hands helping to run those fundraisers and service projects in our communities. Please consider moving down here permanently and becoming full-time members here in Florida. We want you and need you!!
PCC Lion Suzy and I thank you for all your hospitality you have shown us this year, and we look forward to visiting more Clubs and working on more of your tremendous fundraisers and service projects, keep those invitations coming.
The Registration form for our MD-35 Convention in May is enclosed in our District Newsletter this month, so please print it out and fill it in and mail it to PID Neil Spencer so you get the best seating for the Saturday evening banquet. Early Bird pricing is $5 less per meal.
Don’t forget to save the date of Saturday April 12, 2014 for our District 35-I District Meeting/ Mini-Convention at Gulfport. More information will be shared in next month’s newsletter. Thank you all for your service to your Club, District, Multiple District, Country and the World. Lions truly do make a difference.
Our Dreams Come True Because We Serve Together!!
