From The Podium

June from the Podium

You are doing great!!  As of 29 May 2015,the District headcount is a Plus 3.

I still have several clubs to visit, but I will probably miss a couple.

We still have 10 clubs who have not submitted their PU 101s and all of them have been contacted by email.  We need to have them done as soon as possible, so the roster books can be done.

Hope your summer projects go well.  Remember, if you can get non-members to help and let them know what you do as a Lion, they may decide they want to be a Lion.

Be sure to advertise what you do as Lions in the media and, also, don’t pass up a chance to tell people what you do.  I had an experience where I told someone about Lions providing hearing aids. This ended up with the Lions being able to help someone to a better life with better hearing and we might get a new Lion out of the deal.

Lions Day is at Bay Cliff on 11 July as is the changeover meeting.  Looking forward to seeing you there.  Please let us know how many will be attending by emailing  Kris or call Kris at 906-362-0202 or contacting me at or by phone at 906 346 9278.

Remember, there is strength in numbers so let’s Strengthen the Pride. The more Lions we have the more we people we can help.
