District Meeting set for August 2

Plan on attending the year’s first meeting of District Governor Marty Juel and his cabinet. Previously called ‘cabinet meetings’,  District Meeting will have topics and presentations of information to all officers and members of your club. Roll up your sleeves and get ready for action! As evident by DG Juel’s theme, ‘Success THROUGH Service, the focus of this meeting will be how you can use tools and resources available through the district chairpersons as well as LCI itself. If you haven’t attended a ‘cabinet’ meeting in the past few years, be sure to send in your reservation (or let a club officer know you want to attend). Oh, there will be a great lunch, too!

Flags from the Heart Project

Elkhart Lions to sponsor District 25-G Golf Tourney
Our club was approached recently to see if we would be interested in taking over as sponsor of the 42 year-old golf tournment. The Syracuse has hosted this event since its inception and that club has few golfing members to continue hosting it. The Elkhart Lions board voted to adopt and continue this great event. The complete flyer and registration form is available at this link.

Two special awards were given at the officers' reception.  Brian Thomas (left in photo) was presented a special award for his contribution that brought the Flags from the Heart project to our club.  This project provides high visibility for the club during the Memorial Day weekend with over 200 U.S. flags that were sponsored in memory and in honor of individuals.  Gary Chastain, a member of our club who currently serves as treasurer of the Indiana Lions Speech and Hearing Project, was presented a Richard Miyamoto Fellowship.  This fellowship recognizes individuals who have contributed time and leadership to this state project and the speech and hearing needs of their local communities.

Lion of the Year

Secretary and chairman of the club's Eyeglass Assistance Program Diane Parker was named 'Lion of the Year' by outgoing president Bill Lavery.  She was cited for her relentless hours of service at most of the club's projects.
