My Brothers and Sisters in Lions,

Congratulations to all the new Lions that are taking office this month. June has been a busy month, we have had two successful organizational training meetings. Our GLT Sheryl Shemet did a great job in putting together a meaningful training. I would like to thank the teachers for doing a great job. Host Clubs were Pat Halls’ club Graceville (held in Marianna) and the St. Augustine club held theirs at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind by Wayne Mancil along with Jim Hawkins incoming President for St. Augustine. If you missed the training, my GLT team will come to your club.

If any Lions 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.

Before our trip to Japan we had the honor to install the new officers for Crescent City, Alachua, Palatka New Vision, Ocala On Top Of the World (OTOW) and Jacksonville-Arlington. We also inducted some new members. My wife, Sue and I had a wonderful time as we received a warm welcome from all the clubs.

We all hope to see everyone at our first District meeting at Jacksonville-Arlington at their clubhouse – 6523 Commerce Street, Jacksonville on August 10, 2016.

We will be back from Japan by the time this letter is published and in my next letter I will give you some highlights of what I learned.

I am looking forward to visiting all our clubs in our District.

Our International President, Bob Corlew, his theme is New Mountains to Climb and mine is Reach For the Moon. After you Climb the Mountain, Reach For the Moon. There is no limitation on things that Lions can accomplish.

Please continue to support fellow Lions who are recovering from illnesses, surgeries and those who have lost loved ones.

Your Brother in Lions,
