Happy Spring – Isn’t it great to be a Lion in beautiful East Tennessee! I had a great time working with ETSU at their Service Project at the Habitat Restore in Johnson City and thanks to the Union County Lions for hosting a fun Zone Meeting last week. Sadly, I am almost finished with my club visits – this has truly been the highlight of my year as Governor.

As everyone is invigorated this Spring, let’s look at our membership and invite those individuals motivated to make a difference in their communities. Perhaps you have a Service Project you need help with – Just Ask! Getting the community engaged with our projects is a perfect way to get new members. Members are the lifeblood of our organization and we need to listen to their ideas, new or old. We also need to take care of each other. Check on those members who have not attended meetings in a while and make sure they are ok. The key for our members is engagement in our club and its projects. We all like to have that feeling of making a difference in the lives of others. Remember, if you volunteer doing service outside your club it still counts for your club’s service activities. You need to let your Club Secretary know what you did when, the number of hours you volunteered and the number of people impacted! Isn’t it great to serve others!

One final tidbit – Please plan a service project centered around the Lions 100th Centennial Celebration. Thanks to the many clubs that participated in our successful “100 Service Card” Project but we can do even more! For other ideas, look at the Lions Centennial website: lions100.lionsclubs.org!

Thanks for all you do!

Yours in Lionism,

-DG Paulette
