I would like to welcome all our club members to the 2014/2015 year of the Meadville
Lions Club (our 90th year).
As King Lion I want to get to know our newer members on a personal basis. Please
try to attend the monthly meetings and take part in projects. We all grow through
sharing ideas and working together.
My goal for this year is to make our club more relevant.
We have taken our first step under King Lion Judy last March when we started the
Club Excellence Process. My plan is to act upon the results of the club survey and
move forward with the community needs assessment.
For our members I would like to propose one goal for you this year. Bring One!!
Bring at least one guest to a club meeting and then bring them into the club. If
each current member would just recruit one new member we would be doubly strong.
We would be the fastest growing club in the district and we would make a difference
in our community.
For our brand new members I will be looking at ways to help you grow in Lionism.
The most important thing is to take part in a committee. I am not looking for you
to chair but please volunteer to be on at least one committee. Come to our board
meetings and learn the inner workings of the club. Make it a goal to attend at least
one board meeting. The best way to grow and learn is hands on experience.
I will be also looking for your help on projects throughout the year. The more we
work together the more we can make a difference.
For our seasoned members I will be asking you to take the new members under your
wing. You are a wealth of knowledge in Lionism.
This is my eleventh year as a Lion, and I am still learning everyday. Let’s share
our knowledge, we will all grow.
I want everyone to know that I am available to you. If you need an answer, information,
or have a problem, call me. I will try to help. We are a club, a family, we are Lions.
One last thing, don’t forget the upcoming Reorganization Meeting on July 19, starting
at 3:00. This will be the best way for you to learn about what we will do during
the upcoming year.
