I would like to take a moment and thanks PDG Deb Burkholder, PDG Cheryl Wilbur, PDG Tom Gregg & PID Cindy Gregg for a job well done on the Fall Leadership Symposium that was held in October at the Westmoreland County Blind Association, in addition to all the lions that took the time out of their day to attend to listen and learn. I would like to encourage you all to to try to attend the seminars as they are a great way to learn and to meet other lions.
The next Club Support Meeting will be held Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at the Westmoreland County Blind Association at 7pm. District Leader Dog Chair-Lion Amanda Remic will be presenting on Leader Dog which I am sure will be very informative for all. I hope to see you all in attendance.
Mass Induction is fast approaching. Please mark Wednesday, November 6, 2019 on your calendar and get your RSVP's in to 2VDG Margie Wolff as soon as possible. The event will be at Ferrante's Lakeview in Greensburg. All new members, their sponsors, Lions, spouses, and guests are encouraged to attend this celebration. I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween. I would like to see pictures and hear about how your club celebrated this spooktacular day. I would like to give a shout out to the Derry Lions as they took part in the Derry Area School's "Trunk or Treat" Day which was held at Grandview Elementary School on Saturday, October 26, 2019. ZC Amy & I had the pleasure of lending a hand to King Lion Marie to decorate the trunks of our cars & to hand out treats to the children following the parade. It was fun to see all of the ghouls, goblins, princesses and other costumes come out for a great time! This is always a great way to get some visibility in your community!!
It has been very nice seeing all of you during your home club's District Governor's visits, events and activities. If I did not see you yet, I hope to be seeing you soon.
Remember, where there is a need there is a Lion. Let's all get out there and provide some service to our communities. DG Dave is encouraging all clubs to screen as many children in your areas using the Spot Screeners. The Holidays are fast approaching, so a few other ideas could include providing a holiday dinner to the shelter; serving a holiday dinner, Christmas Caroling at a local Nursing Home, ringing the bell for the Salvation Army, or helping out with building bicycles for the Toys for Tots Project. There are many opportunities to SERVE your community, so let's get out there and get it done!!
