2nd Vice President Bob Kious is the program chairman for September. All Lions need to attend ALL the regular meetings possible. (Editor note: The agenda is NOT a repeat – we have different speakers, business & reports). Our next fundraising event is the annual Candy Day scheduled for October 6 & 7 (Friday & Saturday) with Lion Michael Stopka as chairman. DO YOUR PART and volunteer to SERVE. For this event to be a success all lions need to participate. Like JD said.. it is a AHOD. (I like ALOD also.) Read the July-August Lions Magazine to find out about the recent statue which was dedicated and the accomplishment of Lion Richard Byrd 91 years ago. Remember – “Power in Service”, “We Serve Better Together”

News from Lions International, Bob Corlew, President:
Lions Club membership is continuing to grow. “I am pleased to announce that we just surpassed our all-time membership record of 1,445,591 lions.”
As a result of some organizational changes, LCI and LCIF is looking toward our new century. “We seek to triple our humanitarian impact by serving 200 million people annually.
To meet the growing challenges facing our world, we have created a service model for the 21st century with five service platforms: diabetes, environment, hunger relief, pediatric cancer and vision. These are large and ambitious areas for service, but we have the history and track record of success to help guide us.” Think about your service projects. Can a LCIF grant make your projects more impactful to your community?
