Spring has sprung in Meadville. The crocuses are up; the peepers are peeping and
every man’s fancy turns to mowing grass (wait one we might have to delay spring a
month as it is snowing outside my window at the moment).
It is that time of year when the Lions Club conventions roll around.
The District 14-F convention is on the 18th of April at Cross Creek Resort. Have
you registered yet? If you have never attended a Lion’s function other than at club
level this is a great opportunity.
Please consider going to support our District and rub elbows with our other clubs.
It is a great opportunity to learn what is going on in the District. If you would
like to meet our International
President Joe Preston you would find him at our upcoming State Convention, 14th of
May through the 17th at Lancaster PA. If you would like more information please ask
PDG Scott or myself.
On May 2nd at the Riverside Inn our District will be holding a Dinner in the Dark
for Leader Dog. This is shaping up to be a great evening. We will have a number of
motivational speakers regarding blindness and how Leader Dog can change a life. During
the meal we will be physically blindfolded with a sighted host at every table. This
will give you a new perspective on what blindness means to a person. The tables will
seat 8 guests and I would like to make sure the Meadville Lions will fill at least
one of them. There is an application in our newsletter so come and enjoy the fun.
I would love to take a moment to thank all Lions who participated in the Membership
Night last Friday. We only had three potential members there but out of three we
now have two members and
I will continue to work on the third. Congratulation Lions Ray and Dee Dee for your
We will be electing our slate of officers at our meeting on April 16th. Please review
the list in the newsletter and come and exercise your right to vote!!
Finally I would like to wish everyone a very healthy and happy Easter.
