49A MidWinter in Juneau Was A Hit!

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!
Just 2 short weeks ago, District 49A Lions gathered in Juneau to conduct Lions business, learn more about Lions operations and socialize with other wonderful dedicated Lions. It was a fantastic opportunity to get together with so many super Lions/volunteers who also work hard to improve conditions in their respective community's as well as support many Lions Clubs International programs.
The intent of this email is to send each and every one of you a personal "Thank You" for taking the time out of you very busy lives to come to Juneau and share your club's stories, personal experiences and knowledge about Lions.  We are all better Lions thanks to you!

As many know, just days before our MidWinter began, an apartment building next door to the hotel caught fire and displaced 60 families.  The great Lions of District 49A dug deep and collectively contributed $5,550 to the American Red Cross of Southeast to assist these families.  Those checks have been delivered and are doing great works here in Juneau already...just in time for Thanksgiving.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
