Distict 14-C Governor's Message

Lions, Lionnes. Leos, and All Guests,

       I would like to thank you for electing me to be the District Governor for Lions District 14-C. I will do my best to be a District Governor that meets or exceeds your expectations. It is my hope that we will all adjust to the new normal and be able to serve our communities and the world as Lions have done for over 100 years.

       I have submitted my 2020-2021 goals for our District to Lions Clubs International. I will need a lot of help from the Great Lions of District 14-C in order to meet the goals that I have set, and I know that I can depend on you.

       As we all know, our membership in North America has been on the decline for many years. That has caused a decline in the service that the Lions of North America are able to do. At the same time, the need for service has grown, and we are not able to do what we are committed to do (Where there is a need, there is a Lion).

       Each one of us needs to be thinking about our membership by telling people whom we know that would be an asset to our clubs about membership in the Lions Clubs. People need to know of the service we provide, the fun that we have, the help that we give each other, and the life long relationships that we enjoy. They need to hear how great it is to be a Lion and be invited to service projects, invited to Lions social events, invited to club meetings, and finally invited to join our clubs. When they become members, they need to be able to get involved and do the things that they were expecting to do as a Lion. Let them help us to grow in new services to our communities and the world (We Serve).

       Please stay safe and healthy and when we are able to do so, I look forward to seeing and working with you to provide great service to our communities and the world.

       I hope to set the course for a great 2020 to 2021 Lions year for District 14-C. Together, we can and will make it great to be a Lion in the next Lions Year and beyond.

       Together, we can make a difference, and we will work to make it great to be a Lion!

Thank You for your Service, Lions, Lionnes, Leos, and All Guests!
