Service Reporting Contest
Back in October we kicked off a District Level Service Reporting Contest. There were two qualifications for the contest – 1. Club must report Service during October, November, and December using MyLion; and 2. Club must have a registered Club Service Chairperson. At the time the contest began we had 10 Clubs in the District with GSTs and now we have one more joining that list with Level Green Lions Club naming Rob Fucich GST. The winners of the contest are as follows:
1st Place– Vandergrift Lions,
2nd Place– Rostraver Township Lions
3rd Place– Youngwood Lions
DISTRICT 14-E SERVICE PROJECT
If you attended the MD-14 State Convention a few years back at Seven Springs, when our District hosted the Convention, you had the opportunity to take place in a food packing service project. We are bringing that same event to District 14-E.
There are people in the world and our local communities that do not know where their next meal is coming from. Either they can not afford food or don’t have access to it. It can be children in urban settings or families in rural America. Elderly people are sometimes forced to make decisions between buying food or buying medicine. Meal packing events engage people to give back to the community. Volunteers work together in an assembly line to create protein-enriched meals.
We will be holding one of these assembly line food packings in March to benefit those in need locally. We will be using a do-it-yourself system developed by The Outreach Program in which our District volunteers will be packaging 2,000 food kits. Those food kits will then stay here in Westmoreland County to help finger hunger in the communities of District 14-E.
To do the packing we need to raise $750.00. With this article we are requesting help from our Lions Clubs to raise this money by sending donations for the event. Click here for the Project Donation Form. Information will then follow with details on the packing for anyone who wants to help. I can be reached by phone or text at 724-309-6750 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yours in Service,
PDG Lance H. Remic
Global Services Team Chairperson, District 14-E
