District 26-M2 Newsletter

Message from the District Governor

Hello Lions, well we had a great convention. I would like to thank all the convention committee for their hard work
they did putting on a great convention. I would also like to thank all of the clubs in 26-M2 for their help this year. I
think our convention was a great success, especially Friday night was a really good time with a lot of people.
International Director Tom and wife Lion Gillian were so much fun. They are great people. All Lions who received
awards where well deserved. Thank all of you.

I’m looking forward to the State Convention on the 26th through the 29th of April, hope to see you all there. Also don’t
forget about our International Convention coming up at the end of June in Las Vegas. I hope everyone can come.
As always If anyone needs anything from me, just give me a call. Thanks for all you do for lions, remembering WE

DG Joe


Message from 1st Vice District Governor

Greetings Lions!

Spring has arrived and all the lions clubs are busy in their communities, and along with spring also comes new ideas. The
membership in this district is a positive so that means that lions have also been busy asking new members to join. With those new members come new ideas that may be good to utilize and try in your clubs. I am beginning to fill my cabinet for 2018-2019, if you are interested in a position please contact me and I will see what I can work out. I do think that is very important to get new people involved in the district and new ideas to make the district grow and evolve into the future.

With a fabulous District Convention behind us and the State Convention quickly approaching , I encourage all Lions to attend and learn more about the great organization that we serve in.

Yours in Lionism,
DGE Lion Joe Foster

Lions of this Wonderful District,

Thank You for your Support and Confidence in voting me in as you 1st District Governor elect, I know Lion Jennifer and myself are looking to the next few Years.

With that being said, we are still looking to finish this year STRONG, we are currently leading the State in new members and as today we are a + 18 for the year. Way to go M2. Lets keep it up and show why we strive to be #1.

The District Convention is now only a memory and a Great time was had by All, International Director Tom and Lion Gillian said that the convention was one of the Best they have ever been to.

The State Convention is next, April 26-29, we are hosting it this year and I would LOVE to see everyone there. We are welcoming many Lions from around the State and a Past International President from New York, come join us...

As PDG Debbie says ... " TODAY IS THE DAY " !! make plans to come, bring your club members and your prospective members and show them how "Together We Can Do So Much."

Lastly, its the beginning of our busy time, BBQ's, Trivia nights, Ride for Kids Sight, etc. Get out there and support other clubs. If your Club is looking for Help in a Fundraiser, we can hook you up with clubs that want to partner. Turn your Fundraisers into FUNraisers and watch the smiles develop and you own club membership climb.

I am here for all of you, if you need me call me, if you have questions, wants or desires, contact me. If I don't have the answer, my cell phone has a number of someone that does.
Lets Enjoy Lions Together.

Yours in Lionism,

Message from 2nd Vice District Governor - ELECT

Our journey continues! I have learned a lot from each of you in the years leading up to this election and I know that I I'll continue to learn and grow in Lionism. Special thanks to my family for their support and encouragement in ALL of my volunteer endeavors, the Wildwood Area Lions Club for their whole-hearted endorsement and Lion Devin Struttmann and PCC Charlie Hartmann for standing up to nominate me.

I am very excited about the 2018-2019 year and the plans being discussed to move our District forward. Thank you, also, to all of the PDGs who allowed me to serve on their cabinets. You have been my Guiding Lions for further leadership in our organization. I will continue to seek your guidance.

District 26-M2 has many dedicated leaders. Together we can make it work for the good of others. Where there's a need, there's a Lion!
