Members Present: Elizabeth Olsen, Roger & Shauna Davies, Laurie-Ann & Alex White, Christine & Glen Bly, Deanna Friday. Special Guests: Cathy Anderson – 1st Vice District Governor and Steve Clark – Zone Chair
Items to Discuss:
Address by Special Guest – Cathy Anderson
Quick notes from 1stVP Cathy: There are 81 clubs in our district .. Greetings from the International President Chancellor Bob Corlew .. This Year’s Motto – “New Mountains to Climb”. Rural areas have more relaxed clubs. These clubs do more here than in cities. They raise money for betterment of the communities. LCIF – our foundation. Donations are down. Collect money for the foundation for Slave Lake, High River, Medicine Hat and Fort McMurray There is $10,000 available for disaster relief in the area (Call LCIF). LCI Forward – new initiative to serve 200 Million by 2021 worldwide Next year, Naresh Aggarwa, in India will initiate the “We Serve” theme again. The local club executive directory is planned to be available as an eDocument which should be easier to keep updated than printed booklets. Also: Lions Commemorative Coin – available for purchase for $55 US + $2.50 shipping; it will be given to recognize members in the Club. Reminder: Convention in Medicine Hat in October. MDC – May 4,5 – Convention – 100th Anniversary in Chicago Next year Cathy will be running for District Governor. April 29th – Training in Strathmore planned for Secretary, President, Treasurer etc (subsequently rescheduled for 22 Apr which conflicted with our Food Drive). Finally: Activity Reports need to be done online so all people know what we are doing.
