Upcoming Events Reminder!!

WELCOME To Lions District 5SE

We are located on the eastern side of South Dakota; part of the MD5 District. We currently have 47 Lions, 3 Liones Clubs, as well as 1257 members in the District. 
   Our District Governor for the Lions Year 2018-2019 is Lion Marie Anne Ben

It is a great year to be a Lion and to represent your club as a leader. Together, Lions lead in providing service to the local community and the world. Your time and effort to assist your club with service and fundraising projects is critical.  Representing your club at the district level is also critically important as it is an opportunity to network with other district Lions, share ideas and to be a voice in the democratic process for elections and votes on issues. Leading by being a club representative and participating in the district proceedings are crucial to the success of your club, District 5SE and for Lions Clubs International.

 In this newsletter issue, you will find the 2018 5SE Fall Forum registration form. The event will be held in Groton, South Dakota beginning with a meet and greet on Friday evening September 28, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. and followed by the 5SE cabinet meeting and dinner beginning at 6 p.m. on Friday. Be sure to bring your new club members and other representatives from your club to enjoy meeting the cabinet members and other Lions. The main Fall Forum activities will begin at 9 a.m. on Saturday, September 29, 2018 and conclude about 7 p.m. Registration will be open at 8 a.m. at the Groton Legion Club Room, 12 North Main Street, Groton, SD 57445. The day will include speakers presenting interesting information and the district business session. Plan to have your club members attend.

I am looking forward to working with the clubs, meeting members, sharing ideas and the vision and successes of our district clubs. We can work together to find new horizons on our course to continue to grow Lion members, leaders and provide needed services.

Yours in Service, Vision and Hope,

5SE DG Marie Anne Ben
