This will more than likely be my last year in contact with you as Leader Dog Chairman for our District. I have raised 6 going on my 7th Puppy and am pretty sure this will be my last one. I can not keep up with the changes nor do I have the expenses to go on with something I loved to do. I had been Leader Dog Chairman years ago when then PDG Brown was Governor and was unable to hold the postion of LD Chair. Lion Richard recieved awards for 100% donations from clubs, something I had dreamed of. In the past few years that I have taken over from PDG Holzworth I had those dreams that I could do the same if not top what PDG Brown was able to do and have fallen short. I believe last year only around 40% of our clubs donated anything and I really appreciated all you have done. Many clubs have gone way above normal donations and especially with the kennel renovation project. I am forever greatful for all you have done over the years. Keep up the good work as Lions and please see it in your heart as well as your club to make a donation no matter the amount to Leader Dogs for the Blind. Thank you for allowing me “TO SERVE” as Chair, Co Chair for YOUR District. After all, Helen Keller challenged us as Lions to become “KNIGHTS FOR THE BLIND”.
