Council Chair’s Corner
Fellow Lions of Kentucky,
I hope everyone is staying safe during these unusual times. This is a learning experience for everyone including Lions. I look back a year ago and I had never been in a meeting on line or a Zoom meeting and had really never heard of it. Now it seems like I am on 1 to 2 a week. Times are changing and we have to change with the times. All of our clubs have had a set back from this, some more than others but we will get through this. Since the Lions started in 1917 look at what they have made it through wars, sickness and the great depression and we will survive this. It takes us all to do it. I have heard of clubs having to cancel fund raisers and service projects. We need to think out side of the box and figure how we can serve. We also need to pay close attention to our members and stay in contact through virtual meetings or just phone calls. These are our brothers and sisters in service and we need to stay together. I know that both Districts who are lead by outstanding Governors are working hard through this time. Both Governors have a strong cabinet supporting their goals and plans and with your help we can make this an outstanding year even with the virus. The Multi-District is also filled with a bunch of hard working Lions to support the districts.
This year we have joined the MD's around the country in the North American Membership Initiative (NAMI). This is a plan to grow membership and service through a guideline of steps and we have been meeting for months on this and have some strong plans made. A lot of things have started moving forward but we can always use help. If you are interested in helping contact your District Governor and I am sure they can find a place for you.
Always remember that the Lions have always served and we will not let this virus keep us from doing this so join me and let’s get through it. If you ever need anything call me or email me and I will try to help or will find someone who can.
