PHEW – where did the year go!?! THANK YOU District 12N Lions for your support and your encouragement throughout the year. THANKS for your hospitality and courtesies during my club visits, supporting our membership drives, our service and legacy projects and our cabinet meetings and seminar events.
We are ending the year strong with the chartering of TWO NEW CLUBS: Sevier County Lions Club and the Knoxville East Lions Club. Thanks to the teams that worked so hard canvassing and putting these clubs together – It truly is a team effort! A special thanks to PDGs Ed Gibbons, Diane Wilkerson, Chuck Bailey, Dave Crawford and Jim McFarland as well as others who were volunteers during the recruiting process and thanks to our Guiding Lions who will be mentoring the clubs moving forward.
It was such an honor to have Int’l President Bob and Lady Dianne Corlew with us at the recent MD12 State Convention in Pigeon Forge. The clubs across the state were well represented and we enjoyed marching in the Dolly Parton Homecoming Parade albeit a little wet!
I was also proud to represent Int’l. President Bob Corlew at the recent Karns All-Inclusive Playground speaking on behalf of LCI and our grant partner, Anthem-Amerigroup and their healthy heroes program.
I am humbled and honored to have served as your District Governor this year and I wish you all the very best in your lives and service in Lionism. Let’s finish the 2016-2017 Lions year stronger than ever!
With Warmest Regards,
