From the DG’s Desk
Spring is a great time of the year and what a great time to ask someone to join your Lions Club. Wow we are having a great year inviting others to join our clubs and the opportunity to serve as Lions have been doing for almost 100 years. Keep up the work you do, spring into action and serve.
MD 12 State Convention at the Chattanooga Choo-Choo was quite an event. Past International President Barry Palmer was the guest speaker and what a cool Lion he is. He let us know that the eyes of the world will be on Tennessee Lions in the upcoming year as our International President (Bob Corlew) will be from Tennessee. Along with some cool magic tricks, he spoke about retention and what being a Lions is about.
Awards were received at the convention and 12N Lions were on the receiving end. Congratulation to 12 N Lion of the Year PDG John Kelsey, Lion of the Decade Lion Ron Riehn, Melvin Jones Fellows Award was presented to PCC William (Mike) McDonough, 2ndVDGE Brandon Johnson was awarded the Virginia L. Lindsey Leadership Award and our DGE Paulette Bailey received the International President Leadership Medal.
Thank you, Lions, for all you do. It’s Great to be a Lion!
