My Brothers and Sisters in Lions,

My wife and I attended the Lions Leadership Training in the Orlando MD Office. All the Instructors were very informative.

The 1st VDG’s had to choose who their Council Chair for the next Lions year. We had three candidates to interview from. It was a tough decision, as the candidates answered all the questions and are well qualified. With an almost tied election, the final choice was our own Governor Larry Hopkins. Congratulations, looking forward to working with you in your new position in the new Lion Year.

We have a Candidate for 2nd Vice District Governor, Lion Bobby Wright who also attended the training in Orlando. It’s great to see such excitement in our District 35L Everyone keep up the enthusiasm and we will continue to grow in Lionism.

As a reminder it’s that time of year to pay our District and Multiple District Dues, also time for getting your new slate of officers nominated.

If any Lion has any extra time, there are online courses that you can take from Lions University and you can progress from Bachelors to Masters to Doctorate Degrees. This is especially helpful to new officers. Then it is required to attend Lions USA/Canada Forum to receive your Degrees. The next forum is September 15-17 in Omaha, Nebraska.

There is also the Lions Learning Center. Knowledge is powerful, so have fun in expanding your mind.

Important dates coming up:
March 23, 2016 Navarre 10 Year Anniversary
April 7-10, 2016 Leadership Seminar

CALLING ALL LIONS, CALLING ALL LIONS, I still need to fill some positions in my cabinet for the next Lions year. If you have the desire to serve in a different capacity, email me along with a brief biography. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Please continue to support fellow Lions who are recovering from illnesses, surgeries and those who have lost loved ones. Also for those who lost so much in the tornadoes in Century and Pensacola.

Your Brother in Lions,
1st Vice District Governor
Larry Masters
