Greetings! After a winter hiatus, the Lions Roar newsletter is back on line! Hope everyone had a good winter and we’re all looking forward to an active 2012 Lions year. We have some news and events to pass along.
Meetings: At the Thousand Island Land Trust office, behind Rak’s on Riverside Dr. All meetings start at 6:30 pm.
The next April regular meeting is Monday April 23rd.
May meetings are Monday May 7th, Board Meeting and Monday May 14th (Education Night, details in next newsletter).
Our International Night meeting was a great success. Exact numbers aren’t in but it appears this was the best attended International Night ever with approximately 135 Lions in attendance from clubs around New York State and Ontario. Thanks to King Lion Tim for the many hours he devoted to organizing the event and the Clayton Lions who helped make International Night successful.
Spaghetti Dinner is just around the corner. Mark your calendar to be there on Friday, April 27th. Attached is the work roster and we should have plenty of student help from TICS. We need everyone to pitch in at Spaghetti Dinner. Kitchen and clean-up are areas we especially will need help.
Dues are due in May. We are trying to hold the line on dues. If you pay during May, membership is $65. If you pay after May 31, dues are $70. We have no alternative but to drop anyone who has not made arrangements to pay their dues by June 30.
Slate of Officers. We need to come up with next year’s officers and Board of Directors in May. Our club would benefit from new personnel for officers and Board members. Please think about going the extra distance to help your club by becoming an officer or Board member. It is interesting, fun and not too time consuming. Current officers may be contacting you to ask if you can help govern the club next year.
