1st Vice District Governor’s Message

It is once again my honor and pleasure to serve District 14-K as your 1st Vice District Governor for 2018-2019. I look forward to a great year with our new Governor, Lion Karlene Laub, and her theme “Lions – The Heart Beat of the Community”.

Lions Clubs International begins its 102nd year with more than 47,000 Clubs worldwide. Lions continue to grow in numbers and serve more people than ever before. With your help and support District 14-K will be a part of that growth in 2018-2019. Growth is vital to our continued success. I challenge each and every member to rededicate themselves to Lionism and meet the Service Challenge outlined by LCI to serve 200 million people each year worldwide.

The Lions Club International Foundation is challenging Lions to donate $100M per year for the next three years ($300M). The needs of the world are growing and we must respond. LCIF is looking to each of us to donate to the causes in our framework. Your individual and club donations go toward a Melvin Jones Fellow Award ($1000). Do what you can as often as you can and know that your contributions make a difference in someone’s life here and around the world.

Working together as a District has many benefits: funding; grant monies; training; sharing club information; fellowship. I hope to see you at Zone Meetings, the District 14-K Rally, and the District 14-K Convention. Together we can achieve much more than working alone.
