September From the Podium

HAVE YOU ASKED SOMEONE TO JOIN YOUR CLUB OR ASKED THEM TO HELP ON A LIONS PROJECT SINCE JULY 1?

The picture is me being presented a thank you card to the Lions of SD10 signed by the campers at Bay Cliff.

I have started my visits and would like to thank the clubs I have visited for their gracious hospitality.

Roster Books were sent out to all the clubs on August 28  I mailed them to the club presidents of those clubs who didn’t pick them up at the changeover meeting. If you didn’t get Roster Books at the changeover meeting and don’t receive one shortly, e-mail me and I will get you one.

We still need input of upcoming events for the SD10 Lions Website.

Oh yes, Membership: I recently attended a meeting for Ducks Unlimited where they showed a video asking a number of volunteers why they volunteered and the underlying reason was because they were asked. And by the way almost a third of the DU volunteers present were also Lions. This brings us back to the line those that DO, do and those that DON’T, don’t. Don’t write off a prospective member because they belong to another group, and you can still try to enrich someone’s life by starting them on the path of doing.

There is a statewide program to raise funds to upgrade the Leader Dog Facilities Lion Jack Holzworth is the regional chair for the UP. If you would like to help, contact Lion Jack. His contact info is on page 9 of the Roster Book.
