I am looking forward to working with our new District Governor (DG) Larry Masters and 2nd Vice-District Governor (2VDG) Bobby Wright this upcoming Lionistic year. Thank you to all of our Lions for your confidence and for giving me this opportunity to serve you and our District once again. This year promises to be both busy and fun and I am excited to again be able to continue visiting the clubs in our District to see old friends and to make many new ones. I hope you will all join me in making this a stellar year for DG Larry Masters.

This year, as your 1st Vice-District Governor (1VDG), I will be serving as the District Governor Team liaison between the District Global Membership Team (GMT). This means that I will be working as an active member of the District Global Membership Team along with the DG and 2VDG and other team members to establish and implement district wide membership growth. I will also be working with them and the Global Leadership Team (GLT) to develop and implement district wide leadership development as outlined by Lions Clubs International (LCI) and our Multi-District (MD) 35. These are both areas that are of the utmost importance for the growth and survival of our District. With the help of our fellow Lions we will all be able to move ahead and make District 35-L an exceptional one.

This past year has been both educational and fun working with all of the Lions who stepped forward to
serve. Thank you to all of you for all of your hard work in the past and also to those Lions who have volunteered to work in all leadership capacities this year – whether on a club, district or multi-district level. We would not be able to accomplish the things we do without you.

To our new Multi-District Council Chair (CC) Larry Hopkins I wish you all of the best in your upcoming year. It has been a pleasure working with you as our District Governor (DG) and I am looking forward to working with you as you continue in this new role.

Lions, as you start the new year remember that: When we come together it’s a beginning – when
we stay together it’s progress – and when we work together it’s success – may you all have Success
through Service.

Yours in Lionism,
1VDG Diane Melnick
