GLOBAL ACTION TEAM (GAT)
AREA GLOBAL ACTION TEAM COORDINATOR MESSAGE
Dear Lions, Leos, and Lionesses,
As we prepare for an exciting holiday season and look forward to the beginning of a New Year, I would like to wish all of you a safe and joyous holiday.
However, I would also like to encourage every club to make some resolutions/goals for the coming year:
• Schedule two or more service projects (provide vision screening at a church or day care center; have a food collection; do a Strides walk for diabetes or try some Zumba; save your spare change for Four Diamonds to help fight childhood cancer; plan an environmental project for the spring.)
• Instead of a regular dinner meeting, do something different. (Consider a movie or game night; plan a country western evening with jeans, bandanas, chili, and line dancing. Surprise your members and have some fun!)
• Invite your banker, insurance agent, teachers, coach, hairdresser, and those who want to improve the community to help with one of your projects and aim to add at least one new member.
• Talk with those who show leadership skills and encourage them to accept leadership positions at the club and district level, and then mentor them. Remember that “leaders are made, not born.”
As always, thank you for all that you are doing to improve your communities. Without your help, there would be more people in need. Have a wonderful holiday season.
Yours in Service and Friendship,
Cindy Gregg, PID
Area Global Action Team Coordinator (Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia)
