Thank you for the honor of serving as your District Governor. These are certainly challenging times we have ahead. I encourage us all to recognize the health and safety professionals who are putting their own health at risk for the greater good. To the educators, grocery workers, delivery drivers and the countless professionals who cannot stay home, the Lions family thank you. We all play a pivotal role in keeping our friends, neighbors and loved ones safe. Please follow the advice of the World Health Organization, your local health agencies and instructions given by your Government. Please be safe and remember that “We are Stronger together,” and we can cope with and overcome the effects of COVID-19. 


Here is a message from our Lions Clubs International President Dr. Jung-Yul Choi:


"Great challenges test us, but they also bring us together. Lions are finding new ways to safely serve. Our Lions Clubs International Foundation has granted over $1,000,000 to help communities facing extreme rates of COVID-19, and additional grant requests are being received daily. Our communities depend on service clubs, and we will be there, supporting and strengthening them together."


A special thank you to my wife Gail, the love of my life, also to my son Jonathan for all the hard work he does for me in Lions. My CST Stacie, Ted would be proud of you. I have a great Cabinet with all of you and see the District growing larger and larger each year. Thank you for being there for me.


Your Governor

Lion Marcel
