Fellow Lions, Lionesses and Leos,
I would like to begin my year as District Governor of District 14-B by saying a simple but deeply grateful THANK YOU. The task of volunteering is no less difficult than it was 20 years ago. We have greater challenges and commitments as we get ready to start the next 100 years of Lions.
President Chancellor Bob Corlew has challenged us with his theme of “New Mountains to Climb”. Climbing a mountain is used as a metaphor. It represents something that is difficult and arduous and takes maximum effort to accomplish. Each mountain represents a new challenge, a new opportunity. Climbing these mountains provides a chance for Lions to make the world better.
As we celebrate 100 years of Lions service, we honor our past and embrace our present. But it is our future for which we must plan. If we are to ascend our next mountain, we must lay out a trail in front of us, marking our trail for future generations of Lions who follow and preserving our tradition of service in District 14-B.
Yours in Lionism, DG Rich Keller
