Lion Mike and myself joined the Juneau Club at their regular monthly meeting and greeted District Governor Lewis.
He brought with him some good news:
- 49A was up 51 new members!
- DMV is taking orders for Lions license plates now. Only $50. This would be a great Christmas present for your spouse!
- There's still openings for the Leadership Academy in January. Think of it.... two and a half days in warm and sunny North Pole.... He's offering a $400 grant to two people who want to go. This is open to Lions and non-Lions. If you're interested in details, contact Zone Chair Lion Mike Norton.
- There's a new club in Bethel; the Winterhouse Program. It's not chartered yet but the papers are signed. I believe this is a house for people who don't have a place to sleep and the Lions run it. What a great concept.
- The district's web page is being revamped and we can expect to see a new, improved website by the end of June. They've opted to use the e-clubhouse template.
- Specialty Clubs are often more about their specialty than "serving." He's working hard at getting the mindset changed to Lions first, then racing (or whatever the specialty is). This is a good thing.
