Welcome To Lions District 308 B2
District Governor Tan Swee Kok
Lions Club Of Seberang Perai Selatan
My dear Lions,
Our fiscal year 2012-2013 has begun and I wish one and all a pleasant year with plenty of "Fun and Fellowship"
The system in our movement year in year out is the same; it is the changing of "Guards" of Governors from the former to the new. The new Governor may have his new style of the system but at the end of the day he has to execute in accordance with the policies of Lions Club International.
My sincere thanks to all the delegates who put me in office and also to my Cabinet Officers who are happy to serve the District for fiscal year 2012-2013. Alone I can do so little but together we can do more to serve the community especially the underprivileged.
My Theme is my thoughts and if put into actions, is louder than words. In other words, "actions speak louder than words".
My Theme is Service With Courtesy Compassion Courage. It is with Courtesy we show respect. It is with Compassion we show love and kindness. It is with Courage we speak our minds to expose falsehood.
With my Theme, I wish we practice the three Cs to achieve the goal.
The strength of the District comes from the strength of the DG Team. Likewise, the strength of the DG Team comes from the members of the District.
Team Spirit and Team Work are the prerequisites of a strong Team. Team Spirit and Team Work should come from the hearts and the heads. It should be the hearts controlling the minds. Not the other way around.
Therefore, my fellow Lions, believe in yourselves and you will believe and cooperate with the TEAM.
TEAM means, Together Everyone Achieves More.
Let us work towards this goal for the future of the District and for the good of the community.

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world every day because they share a core belief – to serve their community.
Lions Clubs International is the world's largest service club organization. We have 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in more than 206 countries and geographic areas.
Lions have a dynamic history. Founded in 1917, we are best known for fighting blindness, but we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects – including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
Lions give sight. By conducting vision screenings, equipping hospitals and clinics, distributing medicine and raising awareness of eye disease, Lions work toward their mission of providing vision for all. We have extended our commitment to sight conservation through countless local efforts and through our international SightFirst Program, which works to eradicate blindness.
Lions serve youth. Our community projects often support local children and schools through scholarships, recreation and mentoring. Internationally, we offer many programs, including the Peace Poster Contest, Youth Camps and Exchange and Lions Quest.
Our Leo Program provides the youth of the world with an opportunity for personal development through volunteering. There are approximately 144,000 Leos and 5,700 Leo clubs in more than 140 countries worldwide.
Lions award grants. Since 1968, the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) has awarded more than US$700 million in grants to support Lions humanitarian projects around the world. LCIF was also ranked the number one nongovernmental organization in a 2007 study by The Financial Times.
Lions help during disasters. Together, our Foundation and Lions are helping communities following natural disasters by providing for immediate needs such as food, water, clothing and medical supplies – and aiding in long-term reconstruction.
Lions are active. Our motto is "We Serve." Lions are part of a global service network, doing whatever is necessary to help our local communities.
