District Governor Lion Jerry Reaves and Past District Governor Lion John Preston Make Delivery!

This is a post from PDG Lion John Preston sharing his impressions upon arriving in Mayfield, KY-

"Unless you've been living under a rock, you're aware of a series of tornadoes that traveled through Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, and Kentucky. Today District Governor Jerry Reeves and I went to Mayfield KY to deliver some supplies. While waiting to unload our flatbed trailer, we saw vehicles from Minnesota, Georgia, Pennsylvania, and several Kentucky, Illinois and Missouri. This is what serving your fellow man is all about. There were food trucks from all across the state of Kentucky serving anybody that was hungry. The National Guard were everywhere like worker bees, unloading semi trucks from every company that responded, directing traffic, helping loading needed goods into vehicles for the people affected by the tornado. But what hit me the hardest was the vehicles some of those people were driving. Windows gone, taped up with anything they could find, not one piece of sheet metal straight anymore. Some, I think, were rolled over onto their wheels again just so of these people has a vehicle to drive. I watched the folks of Mayfield come out of the temporary warehouse clutching items in their arms, tears streaming down their faces in gratitude. So many I wanted to hug but so little time.

Please find it in your heart to help all that lose so much by these tornadoes. Blankets, extension cords, generators, work gloves, sanitary items you get the idea. Or money through sanctioned organizations. Thanks for listening and God Bless!"
