GLOBAL ACTION TEAM COORDINATOR MESSAGE - FEB 2021
Dear Lions and Leos,
I hope that you and your families are doing well. This past year has been a challenging time for everyone. However, what are you doing to engage your members?
Have your officers contacted each member to see how they are doing
Have you developed a project that members can do from home?
Have you considered doing something special for some of the senior members of your community who will be alone for Valentine’s Day?
Have you provided some online training for your members or shared some valuable resources with potential leaders?
Have you formed a partnership with your Leos to develop a project?
Have you invited a community member to speak at your online meeting?
Have you reached out to community members to share information about Lions and what your club does for the community?
Have you considered sponsoring an essay contest for Middle School students about how their lives have been impacted due to the Coronavirus?
Yes, our lives have changed drastically, but that doesn’t mean that our meetings, fellowship, and service need to end. Instead, we must find new ways to safely work together for the good of our communities because Lions are needed now more than ever.
Jim Lovell said, “There are people who make things happen, there are people who watch things happen, and there are people who wonder what happened. To be successful, you need to be a person who makes things happen.” Continue to be a Lion who makes things happen.
Best wishes for good health and safety as you strive to “Serve with Kindness and Diversity.” Thanks for all that you do.
Yours in Service and Friendship,
Cindy Gregg, PID and Area 1-D Global Action Team Coordinator
