Lisa's Message from June 2021
As a new Lions year approaches, I am in awe of the opportunities that lie ahead for our organization. The team of Lions that have stepped up to leadership roles at the District level continue to amaze me each day. Their solid commitment to find solutions and their dedication to the grassroots Lions show why they were identified as leaders. They are all about the “I can…We will” philosophy of 2021-22 knowing that they have been empowered, are being heard and can make a difference.
This past weekend, the Leadership Team gathered for their final official training before the July 1 beginning of the new Lions year. There was such a feeling of togetherness and excitement in the air. The abundant sharing of information was heart warming and connections were made that will last a lifetime. The participants left full of knowledge that will allow them to better serve each and every Lion of District 2-S2.
Although 2021-22 may look and feel different than other years in Lionism – it really is exactly the same as every other. It is community minded men and women looking for ways to serve others. As Lions, we have the opportunity to touch so many lives ever day. Don’t miss an opportunity. An Unknown Author wrote “If you want to touch the past, touch a rock. If you want to touch the present, touch a flower. If you want to touch the future, touch a life.” As Lions we are afforded, more than most, the ability to touch the future.
The new year stands before us like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. Our goals and direction are clear. The characters are set. This is not chapter 1 nor the final chapter in the Lions District 2-S2 book, however, after its written and read, I hope it adds an important piece to the story along with a smile to your face by knowing that each and every one of you are represented on the pages.
Editor's Note: Since we did not publish a newsletter in June, I thought it was appropriate that this be included in the July issue. -Lion David
