Members of My Lions Family

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be the District Governor of A12. On June 19 we left for an experience of a lifetime none of the Day family really knew what to expect and what Japan would be like but just like our International Theme it was a New Mountain to Climb. We had a couple of trips to the airport as we could not all get on the same flights and after about 18 hours of travel time we ended in Fukuoka Japan on June 20. The airport in Fukuoka had many local Lions providing a hand up to the incoming Lions from around the world making sure we able to get to our correct hotels and providing a welcoming smile.

On Tuesday every one of the 743 District Governors from around the world met with International President Chancellor Bob Corlew and his wife Lion Dianne we received some orientation and information on membership and providing more service to our communities. I was hounered to have a bit of personal time with new International President.

During the District Governor Elect seminar we learned more about the international theme for the year and how we are starting our 100th year of service. As Lions we must continue to assess our service and the programs we offer. As Lions we make an enormous impact on our communities though our work in protecting the environment, our work with youth, as we feed the Hungry and our continued work looking after Vision issues. Every year we are asked to provide more service.

When we Climb New Mountains we must develop new leaders and new leadership skills. Part of our training was to prepare for the future working as a team to build up and not destroy just like in the Lions Code of Ethics. As Lions we have to look at ways to work together as Lions members, as clubs, as zones and regions and districts. We have to have strong members that will make strong club leaders making a stronger organization.

Yes there was lots of learning we must always be willing to learn new things. There was also time to explore and appreciate the local culture. Meeting the people of Japan and the Lions from around the world opens the door to the work we do as an international Organization. Hearing about projects in Asia, Europe, South America, African and of course here at home in North America sheds light that we are all doing to give People a Hand Up in Life.

It is hard for me to express how important it was for me to be able to share this experience with my family. It was amazing for me to be able to have three generations of Lions in attendance and all still active in our organization. Without their support I would not be able to do what I do. I would not be able to lead some of the best people in the world. I promise to do my best to lead A12 this year and to provide leaders for our future as we provide the added service that is and will be need in the future

Thanks to the Lion and Lioness Clubs of A-12

I love being Cabinet Treasurer, I pick my mail up a couple of times a week and usually I get at least one cheque from one of the Clubs supporting the District initiatives. This combined with getting my bills on- line makes picking up the mail an enjoyable job!

The following are a list of the majority of the causes I regularly receive cheques for:

 

Governors Project
Effective Speaking
Youth Exchange
Peace Poster

Camp Huronda CNIB Lake Joseph Centre Camp Kirk

Camp Dorset
Bob Rumball Camp for the Deaf
Lions Homes for the Deaf
Lions Foundation of Canada – Doug Guides
Various CNIB initiatives – Low Vision – Early Intervention

You don’t have to send separate cheques for each cause, simply attach a note with the breakdown and I will allocate appropriately. I forward the monies received on a regular basis and your Club will get credit for the amounts sent. Cheques should be made payable to District A-12 Lions.

Simply pop it in the mail addressed to me;

CT Sheila Webb,

Box 223, Wyevale

Ontario, L0L 2T0
