I am honored to serve as your First Vice District Governor for the Lion year 2017-2018.  I look forward to serving you in the coming year.

I have been a Lion for 19 years with the New Oxford Lions Club.  I have served my Club as President, Secretary, and Board Member.  I am very active within my Zone 1A and have motivated and inspired them to begin working together outside of their own clubs to make our Zone Community stronger.   This past June we did a Zone Food Drive on the same day at several locations and we achieved great success and had fun while doing it.  Serving as Partner in Service with my husband PDG John has also helped me prepare for my journey to serve this great District.

I look forward to working with District Governor Dennis, 2nd Vice District Governor Steve and all of the clubs to achieve the goals set for this Lion year.  Let’s work together to grow our membership, and continue to do great things in our communities for the good of others!
