Hello Fellow Lions,

I hope that all are doing well and that you had a great Valentine’s Day spent with loved ones. This past month has been a busy month with two tornadoes hitting in Century and Pensacola in our District about a week apart. We only had one Lion member from Century Lions Club affected with damage to his roof, that is currently being repaired. The Century Lions Club membership is very actively involved in the help being provided to those affected by the tornado in Century. Lion Bubba from Century Lions Club and Lion John Recke from Pensacola Lions Club have been very helpful in helping coordinate the relief efforts for those areas. Thanks to all who have stepped up to help in the relief efforts. Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has provided us with $10,000 for our relief efforts demonstrating the importance of clubs donating to LCIF.

This month we have several clubs that are conducting major activities from the St. Augustine Seafood Festival to the Alachua Lions Club Cattleman’s Banquet. This is also the time of year to work on getting your next year’s officers selected. Work to bring in new blood for your officers, especially if you are a club that has found itself in a rut. New blood brings in new ideas and excitement to a club that may have become a little stagnate thereby hindering the ability to attract and retain new members. Slam the backdoor shut!

Keep Door Closed

Make sure that you have made your reservations for the District Mini Convention on April 8th and also get your reservations in for the Multiple District Convention April 29th thru May 1st. Make sure that you sign up for the District Luncheon, as that is where we will be handing out all the awards for clubs and individuals. Save money by getting registered by 1 April.

Until next month,

Make the Most of What You Have!
