Patridge Creek Farms online survey for expansion into your area:
Please click below to fill out a survey to identify local people who are interested in creating community gardens, building a local food system, and working with Farm to School education. This will be followed up with a club visit and hopefully bring in local food champions for an open meeting to see how we can work with them to strengthen our local food education and food systems.

Membership Packets
As Global Membership Chair, I request packets from the International.  When new members are posted on the International site, we print out certificates and letters from the Governor for both sponsor and new member.  These are then mailed to the secretary or president of the club, and usually arrive within two days.
The packets also include information on Lions, a discount certificate from the Lions store, pins for both new member and sponsor, and a pen for the new member.
If you would like to receive the packets early, just email wnrowe@charter.net with the name of the new member, the name of the sponsor, and the date of the induction.

Childhood Cancer
Dear Fellow D-10 Lions,
We had an awesome rally last evening in Marquette where we had the opportunity to thank the bikers in person for their awesome contribution to our district Childhood Cancer program. Please support them when they come through your town. Take photos and videos and post them on your social media. Many of the riders are interested in joining their local Lions clubs when they return home. We are so grateful to each one of them for helping UP kids and their families who are battling childhood cancer.
Together We Serve—Together We Can!
