Hello Fellow Lions:
If you did not make it to our 12-N District Convention, you missed a great time. We had International Director Bob Corlew as our guest speaker, we gave out awards and had our first ever Leo District Convention. Thank you to all who helped me during this time. Your support was greatly appreciated.
The convention was fantastic. We had over 160 Lions, Leos and guests. If you were unable to attend talk to someone who was there. A great time was had by all. We also elected our next District Governor Mike McDonough and 1st Vice District Governor Elect Ed Gibbons. Why don’t you give them a call or send an email and volunteer to help them during their year which starts July 1, 2013 to June 30, 2014.
Speaking of conventions our State Convention is May 3rd and 4th 2013. The State Convention will be at the Double Tree Inn in Murfreesboro, TN. Don’t forget to send in your registration. There are some Constitution and By-Laws that we need to vote on and your vote as a Delegate does count. See you there.
Just some friendly reminders, when you have your club elections don’t forget to complete your PU101 either on the LCI website, email or mail to me. We are in the process of gathering new officer information for the directory. The deadline for this information is the end of April. We are having new club officer training Saturday, April 27 at LVBI starting at 9:00 a.m. and then again Thursday, May 23 at Powell Presbyterian Church starting at 6:00 p.m. Please let Lion Nancy Hall or myself know if you plan on attending so we can have enough printed material for everyone.
One last important item. Our district membership has fallen dramatically. We have 993 members in District 12-N. Fellow Lions, WE NEED TO CHANGE!
- We need to change the way we get new members, the training of new members and just our over all attitude of why you are a member. Being a Lion is a privilege.
- We need to get new members in so that your load will be lighter during times of club meetings, club events and fund raisers.
- We need to learn how to become more involved in our community, its needs and I believe that our clubs will grow again.
Thank you for all you do.
District Governor 12-N, 2012 – 2013
