“LIONS-THE HEART BEAT OF THE COMMUNITY”

Lions, Lioness and Leos

I AM VERY HONORED TO BE YOUR 14-K DISTRICT GOVERNOR. PAST DISTRICT GOVERNOR DON KAUFMAN HAS A GREAT MOMENTUM GOING IN OUR DISTRICT AND MY GOAL IS TO KEEP THAT MOMENTUM GOING. I NEED YOUR HELP, HIS CONTINUED HELP AND THE 2018-2019 EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE’S HELP TO MAKE IT HAPPEN. MOST IMPORTANTLY THE GAT (GLOBAL ACTION TEAM). THIS IS THE TEAM I PICKED TO WORK WITH THE CLUBS. THESE LIONS WILL HELP TRANSPORT DISTRICT 14-K THROUGH THE NEXT 100 YEARS OF LIONISM AND MANY MORE YEARS OF SERVICE TO OUR COMMUNITY, OUR COMMUNITY THROUGH OUT THIS GREAT COUNTRY AND THROUGH OUT THE WORLD.

MY THEME THIS YEAR IS “LIONS-THE HEART BEAT OF THE COMMUNITY”. MY DESIRE THIS YEAR IS TO WORK WITH THE CLUBS TO UNDERSTAND WE MUST FIND THE “PULSE” OF OUR COMMUNITIES. WHAT MAKES THEM BEAT? WHAT KEEPS THEM FROM BEATING WITH A NORMAL RHYTHM? WE NEED TO GIVE OUR MEMBERS, OUR CLUBS AND THE DISTRICT A “SHOT IN THE ARM”. I’M GOING TO WORK ON DOING JUST THAT.

THE SLOGAN OF OUR NEW INTERNATIONAL DIRECTOR IS “TO REACH BEYOND, WE MUST REACH WITHIN”. GUDRUN YNGVADOTTIR, FROM ICELND, HAS BEEN INSTALLED AS OUR FIRST FEMALE PRESIDENT. ONE OF HER GOALS IS TO ATTRACT MORE WOMEN AND INCREASE MEMBERSHIP, SPECIFICALLY OUR LIONESS CLUBS. I, TOO, WILL BE DEVOTING MY TIME IN 2018-2019 TO NOT ONLY BRINGING MORE WOMEN INTO LIONS BUT ALSO FAMILIES. FAMILIES NEED TO WORK TOGETHER TO SERVE THEIR COMMUNITIES AND THE CHILDREN NEED TO BE EXPOSED TO SERVICE PROJECTS AND TO HELPING OTHERS. THE SERVICE MOVEMENT MUST CONTINUE AND WILL ONLY DO SO THROUGH OUR CHILDREN.

THANK YOU FOR ALLOWING ME THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE AS YOUR 2018-2019 GOVERNOR. TOGETHER WE CAN KEEP THAT MOMENTUM GOING.


Yours in Lionism,

Karlene Laub
