Everything is changing... we use our cell phones to take pictures, calculate, set an alarm, and just about anything else we want to do.... We rely on our phone, our i-pad, and our computer to retrieve most any information we need to find. We don't write letters anymore, we text or send emails. We don't call our friends on the phone anymore, we text or send emails. We don't need a pencil or an eraser or a dictionary.
On-line is where the young and hip go to find information and stay in touch with family and friends. And it's true, you CAN teach an old dog new tricks! More and more the older generations are spending time on the internet, sending texts, and participating on Facebook.
So it's no wonder that the Mendenhall Flying Lions is also going on-line. It's our hope that more and more members will stop in and visit our Facebook page from time to time as well as read the articles that are posted on The Flying Lions Blog. It's about keeping members in touch with each other, what they're doing, what's going on. It's about sharing information that we've learned from meeting with senior members of Multiple District, training courses, and conventions. It's about sharing. It's about learning. It's about getting to know other members.
There might be some members who feel overwhelmed by all this information. But on the other hand, if any of this information helps even one Lion, then it will be worth it.
This writer is always looking for subjects to write about. Any Lion member is welcome to submit an article and I'll post it for you. The Flying Lion is more personal than other social media. If you caught the biggest salmon ever, take a picture and send it in! If you just got back from a trip and visited a Lions Club, tell us about it. If you participated in an on-line training course, write up a recap and share it with the rest of us.
This Blog is not just about what I might know, learn, or hear. I look forward to it becoming a Club Blog with everyone participating. So, please, send me your ideas, thoughts, pictures, and articles!
A Soon To Be Lion
