My Fellow Lions,
One of the reasons I enjoy visiting different Lions Clubs is to see and hear what they are doing to serve in their communities. As I have mentioned before, I am always amazed at the programs and contributions and activities in which our Lions Clubs are involved. During my visits to various clubs recently, again I have been impressed with what is being done.
One club made a quick decision to donate to a family who had lost everything in a fire; another club previously had donated for special glasses for a teenage boy who now needed a five-organ transplant. Since where they currently live is not far enough away to stay at the Ronald McDonald house near Children's Hospital and both parents currently are unemployed because of medical reasons, this Lions Club made a donation to the family for gas for their travels to and from the hospital.
The Delmont Lions Club held its annual talent show this year but not in their usual format. It was done virtually with the applicants submitting videos of their performance. YouTube video links are placed on the 14E Facebook page and web page so that all of us can enjoy it.
Several clubs have held successful golf tournaments, implementing new rules because of pandemic mitigation requirements. Participants enjoyed themselves while raising money for the Lions Clubs.
Just a reminder to please participate in the fundraisers that our Lions Clubs are holding. There are many creative ways to continue to serve.
Yours in Lionism,
