District Governor - Lion Chris Edwards

Brownfield Noon Lions Club



As we transition from one Lion Year to the next and a new leadership team, 2022-23 International President’s most recent weekly message is worth sharing with my fellow Lions in District 2-T2.

When you love what you do as much as we do, you can’t help but share that joy everywhere you go. And this year, I am so amazed at all the incredible ways that you have shared your service and the joy of being a Lion.

“I am so proud to have been a part of this extraordinary year of innovation, optimism and generosity. Your service has made a difference in the lives of millions of people around the world. And I want you to continue to share the joy, the fun and the incredible pride of being a Lion everywhere you go.

“Let’s make a great day. That’s the message I’ve closed my letters with and those are the words I want you to remember. Because together, we have made a great day for so many people around the world. And Together We Can make a great day for so many more.

“It has been an incredible joy and the greatest honor of my life to serve you as international president.

Make a great day,

Brian Sheehan,

Immediate Past International President


President Theodore Roosevelt, speaking in 1910 at The Sorbonne in Paris, offered a worthy example of how we as Lions should conduct ourselves in our mission of serving humanity through service. This excerpt from his “Citizenship in A Republic” speech is known as the “Man in the Arena.” Let’s take its message to heart.

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Lions of District 2-T2, make a difference in someone’s life today, and every day with your service. Strive to do your best while maintaining a spirit of fellowship and fun. Remember to ask someone to join in our mission of service. Together we can, and together we will.

God bless the Lions of District 2-T2 and especially DGE Chris Edwards, FVDGE Jake Bentley and 2VDGE Vohnya Tongate. It’s been a true pleasure serving as your District Governor this past year and I look forward to even bigger and better things in the months and years to come.
