DG Curtis Burdick's theme: "Serve with Passion”


An important message from DG Curt:

“Lions of District E1, we need your help” 

As the current District Governor of E1 I need to speak to you about the future leadership positions of Zone and Region Chairs along with Vice District Governors for our district. Currently we have some vacant positions, and we need to compile a list of available candidates to lead our district into the future. Our progression should be presidents of clubs move to a Zone Chair position, then on to Region Chair, next Vice District Governor and then on to District Governor.

I took some time and looked over the list of graduates of the MD20 Lions Leadership Institute. All who graduated have the training and ability to fill these vacant positions. I wanted to reach out to each of you and talk for a moment about the position, dedication and commitment it takes to be a leader in our district.

First, let’s talk about the position. It gives you an opportunity to make a difference in your zone, region and community along with the district and multiple district. This gives you the “Voice of a Lion” at a level that can really make a difference. The people you meet are wonderful and a lot of them will end up being your friends for life. Lisa and I really have enjoyed getting to know the Lions of our district, other districts and around the world.

Second is dedication and you do need to be dedicated to the position. There is time involved that you need to allocate to the Lions which I am sure you do already in your current position with your club or the district. Keeping up with emails and keeping other Lions informed is essential.

Third is commitment. Just like anything that you set your mind to achieve in your life you need to commit to it. The stronger the commitment the more successful you will be. I know that we have Lions in our district with the leadership abilities to take on these positions. Know that this is not something we are asking you to do alone. You will have the support of the District to help you with this commitment. for our District to move forward and continue to be strong in the future we need your help. Please consider taking the next step and committing to the future of the Lions and our District.

Thank you,

District Governor E1 Curt Burdick

PS: if you have any questions about the positions that are currently available, please contact myself, your Region or Zone Chair.

Thanks to funding from the Glover-Crask Charitable Trust, the Flaum Eye Institute has been able to launch the Glover-Crask Eyeglasses for Kids program. Glover-Crask Eyeglasses for Kids allows FEI to provide vision screenings and eyeglasses for children who live below the poverty line and are in need of vision care. Since its inception, the program has served four local charter schools including Hope Hall School, Nativity Preparatory Academy, and the Renaissance Academy Charter School of the Arts.

We were happy to welcome Rochester Lion’s Club members Marv Hankinson, James Schiebel and Joseph Gorman to our recent GFK event on January 23rd with students from the Nativity Preparatory Academy. We look forward to growing our relationship with the local Lion’s Club chapters.
