District Governors Message
The month of September has been a challenging month for us all. I can't thank you enough for the phone calls, e-mails and e-cards while i was in the hospital. They helped Celeste and I more than you will ever know.
As we build this District to be the best, I would like you to remember that membership is the key. More hands means more persons to serve. October is LIONS and LEOs membership month. Lets go out and bring new members; and remember each one bring one. LCI has established a number of recognition awards for clubs and individual Lions who sign up new members during the month.
Please visit the Lions Clubs International website at www.lionsclubs.org. This is busy month with the following events: October 10 is World Sight Day and Lions Clubs will be collecting eye glasses, conducting vision and Diabetes Screening. October 15 is International White Cane Safety day.
Your October 2013 District Newsletter is online and can be found by clicking the newsletter link above, it's full of information on upcoming happenings within our wonderful district..
The Emerging Lions Leadership Institute is October 5-7 in Montreal,Canada and don't forget the Advanced Lions Leadership Institute which will be held from March 8-10 2014 in Oak Brook Illinois.
We don't want you to forget the Fall Conference in Orlando from November 8 - 10, 2013 hosted by District Governor Andrew Moos and the Lions of District 35-I. Rumor has it that we may be visited by the likes of the Moe, Larry and Curly, Marlyn Monroe and maybe even Indiana Jones himself.
We also want to remind you of the Winter Conference from January 9 - 12, 2014 which will be held at the Grand Lucayan Beach & Golf Resort in Freeport Bahamas, your Classic Bahamian Experience. Keep your eyes open for additional news as well as transportation information on this conference. I expect you just might find it in your district newsletters and the Multiple District 35 LION Magazine as well as your usual distribution outlets.
Until next time,
DG Dudley Bent
