I am pleased to announce that at the February District Cabinet Meeting and Special Election, Lion Tom Crouser of the Sissonville Lions Club was selected as the new 1st Vice District Governor, replacing Lion Dale Fitzpatrick who resigned due to health issues. 1st VDG Crouser will become District Governor in July. We wish him the best and encourage all Lions to give him support and assistance.
The District still needs someone to step forward to fill the vacant 2nd VDG office. Please do so.
Let us all continue to recruit new members. Each new member and their sponsor will receive a special Limited Edition 100th Anniversary membership or sponsorship pin, and the sponsors can earn up to four pins if the new member remains a Lion for one, two, and three years. For more info, visit www.lionsclubs.org and search for “centennial membership awards”.
Please remember the MD 29 West Virginia Lions State Convention coming up soon. A registration form is attached to this newsletter, and is also downloadable from the District website. It would be great to see lots of 29-C Lions at the State Convention!
Also, consider visiting Chicago for the LCI 100th Anniversary Convention. Register at the LCI website. Consult the November or December issues of this newsletter for information about Amtrak connections between West Virginia and Chicago.
Yours in Lionism!
