Message from the District Governor Joe

Hello Lions of District 26-M2:

Our Cabinet has been very busy making club visits and fun with each club. We just have a few Club Visits left to make.

Don’t forget the District convention coming up March 23 thru the 25th and the State Convention coming up April 26th thru the 28th, both at Double Tree in Westport. Please try to both and have a great time with us.

I would like to thank the Global Action Team for all they do to help others in our District.

See y’all at the District Convention.
District Governor Lion Joe Detter


Message from 1st Vice District Governor

Greetings Lions!

Lion Michelle and I would like to thank everyone for the hospitality the past few months. We have enjoyed visiting and getting to see what the Lions in the District are doing for the community. As time creeps closer, we are looking forward to more time being spent with the club members next year.

Since we are going into March, conventions are coming upon us. The district convention is looking to be a great time, please encourage as many Lions as possible to join us. Your attendance is needed to make upcoming decision for the District, and you can enjoy the time to fellowship with other Lions.

We have another great opportunity this year; State convention is on our district. Please try to attend to learn more about our Great State. Meeting more Lions from across the state will allow us to work as a stronger team.

If you interested in serving at the District or State level, please contact me so we can discuss that so we can try to accommodate where you would like to serve.

Hello Lions of 26-M2:

Winter is fading fast and the Lions are gearing up to be busy; Trivia nights, Ride for Sights, Car Shows, BBQ's and a bunch of other activities are in the works.

Please get out and support the other Clubs and Districts with their fund raisers, not only will you have a blast but it will help to introduce more people into you own functions.

We also have new officers coming into the clubs. Please see that they attend one of the "College of Knowledge" programs coming up. It changes every year and the information is invaluable to running a successful club.

We have many Fun & Exciting things coming up as a group, Please get the word out to attend these things ASAP; District Convention March 23rd-25th, Mid-South Sight& Hearing Bus Trip/ weekend April 13th-15th, Lions State Convention April 26th-29th, International Convention June 28th-July 3rd and the USA/Canada Forum September 20th-23rd. Lion Jennifer and myself will be at All of these functions and would love to spend time with each and every one of you.
