Hello, My name is Lori Bennett, at your service as your Second Vice District Governor. I am a second-generation Lion and a member of the Paris Lions Club. I would like to take a few moments to share some information with you from Lions Clubs International: (visit www.lionsclubs.org for complete details)
October is a Membership Growth Month! Clubs that induct at least one new member during October and records that new member on MyLCI will receive a banner patch from LCI!
October is Centennial Service Challenge Worldwide Week of Service in Sight (October 4-10). If your club participates in a vision-related service project during that week and records it on MyLCI, you will receive a banner patch from LCI!
October is our very first District 1M CONVENTION!! This is your club’s opportunity to vote on the new District By-Laws & Constitution, upcoming leadership, Peace Posters, and more. Conventions are put together with every Lion in mind. If you have not been to one before, go to this one!
October is a great time to add LCIF to your club’s budget. By naming a recipient for a Melvin Jones Award, your contributions will help countless people worldwide, and you will receive the award packet in time for Christmas!
October is a great time to invite a member of your Cabinet to speak at your club meeting. We are here to serve you, and we want to thank you for all of the great service you do in your communities.
Have a safe and bountiful harvest season!
Lion Lori Bennett
