September proved to be yet another successful month for District 12-N, as we finished another month in positive growth for the year. We are the only District in Tennessee to have positive growth at all this year, let alone three months in a row! I’m so proud to have finished the quarter out strong, but we need your help to continue this mission of bringing new members into our association.
One highlight of this month was attending the USA/Canada Forum in Columbus, Ohio. Several Tennessee Lions attended the forum, and I was honored to be able to present about recruiting younger members. Two thousand Lions from across North America came together for a weekend of fun, fellowship, and learning. If you’ve not attended a forum before, I cannot stress enough what an incredible experience it is. The next forum is in Spokane, Washington – so make plans now!
Our District Cabinet meeting last week was well attended, and quite efficient. We completed all business in less than two hours, and that included having an incredible guest speaker in Penny Kleinschmidt and her speech about Childhood Cancer.
This past month, I attended the Knoxville Tri-County, West Knox, Maryville, and Morristown Morris Blvd. clubs. Each is so incredibly unique, and doing wonderful things in our community. At this point, I have visited nearly every club. A few clubs have been visited on my behalf by our wonderful Vice Governors, and a few still have yet to be visited. If I have not visited your club yet, please give me a call. However, even if I have already visited your club, please keep me posted on what your club is doing. I want to come back and continue to support!
