Happy New Year, Fellow Lions!


It's hard to believe that another year has passed and here we are, ready to face another year. It will be filled with opportunities to serve our Club, our Community, our Family and our Country. Will you take advantage of all of these?

New Year's is traditionally a time when people make resolutions to get more exercise, lose weight, make more money, save more, and on and on the list can go. How would you like to make a resolution that won't cost you a dime?


How about resolving to become a better person by becoming a better listener? So often when we're talking to others, we're thinking about how we will reply rather than quietly listen and really pay attention.

How about treating everyone with respect? Recently I read a submission to the Sound-Off column of The Meadville Tribune. I have to admit that my initial reaction was to reply with another sarcastic comment. After thinking about it a little, I decided that it would (hopefully) serve our club's reputation by replying with a thoughtful letter.

How about stopping blaming others? Same thing applies to the above. I decided it would be better to acknowledge that we went ahead with displaying some of the Christmas lights, knowing that they wouldn't be lit. Hopefully we can get the lights rebuilt so that next year that person doesn't have a right to gripe about lights that aren't lit!

How about smiling more, expressing our appreciation and do for others? I've had first-hand opportunity for doing these things AND for accepting others help during my recuperation from knee surgery. Words can never fully express my thanks!

Here's another opportunity that you might want to take advantage of. How about going to Active Aging at 9:30 a.m. On Jan. 19 to watch “The Miracle Worker”, a movie about the life of Helen Keller.

On Jan. 20 you could also go to Active Aging at 11:00 a.m. to hear Lion Therese Wheaton. She will present a program about Leader Dogs and how they can save the life of a vision impaired person and how a dog guide can help them to reclaim their independence and zest for life.

IF one of your resolutions is to save money, you could even call Active Aging in advance and reserve a meal for one or both days of these interesting programs. HAPPY NEW YEAR and Good Luck with your resolutions!!! See you at club – your KL is coming out of hibernation! :)
