From The Podium

April from the Podium

Thank you, Lions of Michigan’s Single District 10!

As we have been visiting you for the past three years (though we still have a few more places to go) we have been amazed and impressed with you all as you seek to serve your communities.  No matter the size of your group, you work together to help with the needs in your area, and do it in so many different ways.  You are unique, individual, and unbelievable (those of you who attended the convention will recognize the use of that last word).  We are very grateful for the opportunity to meet so many of you and learn what you do.

You have shown us great hospitality and friendliness:  sometimes feeding us, sometimes giving gifts, but always, always impressing us with your caring spirit.  You are a blessing to your community and to the Lions of Upper Michigan.  We thank you for inviting us to visit your clubs.  We look forward to seeing many of you again at Lions gatherings and conventions. Thank you for your service and continuing to serve.

From Around The District 10


The Lions of Single District 10 should be proud of the fact that 10 Scholarships were able to be awarded to students of their district.  In order to qualify for these scholarships the student must be either physically challenged or have a learning disability.

Here is a moment I want to share with my fellow Lions:  I received a very special phone call from a school counselor in regards to a recipient of a Lions scholarship that demonstrates  the lions pride.  The counselor was especially excited about the choice that was made by the Lions Scholarship Committee elaborating on what a wonderful student the recipient is and how they considered them “an old soul” at the school.  She continued to enlighten me on how this recipient managed to deal with their own learning disability and has become an outstanding mentor for younger students.

It’s a great pleasure to serve as a part of the SD10 Scholarship Committee and being able to have experiences such as this phone call, help motivate and inspire me, as well as it should you!
