We currently have 47 Lions, 3 Liones Clubs, as well as 1257 members in
New members are essential to continue our Lions organization growth. Each club and club member needs to “Ask One a Day.” Inviter non-members to join our great organization. The more members we have, the more service can be provided. The goal for each club is to have a positive membership growth for the year. So, look at how many members were in your club in July 2019 and be sure that for every member that may have exited, add two more members to the club so that your club will have new energy to grow as a member and leader in Service.
We need each member to be sure to make a contribution to the Lions Foundations, both South Dakota Lions Foundation and Lions Clubs International Foundation. These organizations provide funds for services within our Lions mission. It is through grants from these organizations, each Lions Club could be able to enhance the funding for qualifying service projects. Use the information from the prospective Websites to learn more about grants.
Be sure that you report your service projects, membership changes, and officer elections. Be sure that you register your club delegates for the upcoming MD5 convention in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan form May 22-24 and the Lions International Convention in Submit club accomplishments and upcoming events to 5SENews and the 5SE website. Use the various Website tools and district leaders as we are available to help your club be successful.
Yours in Service, Vision and Hope,
DG Lion Marie Anne
