Tomball Lions raise $2,000 for Tomagwa
With the temperature starting to rise as we move closer to summer it can be easy to forget the sight of snow blanketed Texas. For many of our friends and neighbors, the damaging impact of the February freeze still lingers. Among those impacted was Tomagwa HealthCare Ministries, who lost more than $25,000 worth of insulin. The Tomball Lions Club was proud to continue our long history of support with the presentation of a check for $2,000 to help with replacing the lost medication.

DGE Lisa's Thoughts
The Power of ONE…it doesn’t seem like ONE person really has the power to make a difference but I know it is true. ONE thing can change the course of the world, or ONE person can make a difference and ONE moment can withstand time! Be the ONE person to change others lives…maybe through a smile or a helping hand or maybe a word of encouragement.
We really have no idea how many people we influence each day. Our acts can create a chain reaction of others doing the same. There are also people observing and potentially mimicking our actions who we are unaware of. I was recently reminded of this as I walked through a Starbucks line for coffee. I was tired and not quite at my needed caffeine level when I placed my normal order. I opened my app to pay for my order as was my usual course of action. The cashier smiled and said my coffee was paid for by a previous customer who was paying forward a kind act that they had experienced. Imagine my surprise and how that act changed the outlook on my day. I thanked the cashier but asked her if I could leave a gift card with her to cover someone else’s coffee to provide them with the same experience that I had. I left a $20 card with her then took a seat to enjoy my free coffee. I had an hour or so before my next meeting and planned on working from the coffee shop on my laptop until I needed to get back on the road. As I was seated, I watched the young lady behind the counter share the same conversation with another customer in line and saw the same joy I felt in his face. He did the same thing I had done and paid it forward for someone else. I got no work done as I sat and watched 22 consecutive people pay it forward. The action of the anonymous customer that paid for my coffee not only influenced my actions, but the actions of 33 other people in a positive way that morning. As Lions we influence community members with our actions or at our events. That influence leads others to want to do the same...Growth through INFLUENCE.
While there is no “I” in TEAM, it takes a lot of “I’s” to make a team. As individuals we have Lion power to influence, impact inspire and improve lives. Lives within our community and lives within our organization have been changed because of you! Don’t ever think that you cannot make a difference! You alone can! ONE word, ONE smile, ONE prayer - and if you alone can make that kind of difference, just imagine what we can do as a team!!
Be the courageous Lion with the Power of One.

Meet Thien-An Nguyen: Houston Unity Lions Club President – District 2S2 Hunger Chairperson
Hi Thien-An, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
As you probably know, behind every success there is a great team. It applies equally to a family, a workplace, a club, and your local community. Creating and building a great team is a challenge. It requires skill, great leadership, and some luck. Although no club is the same, but high performing clubs all have one thing in common – outstanding team members. When you have an outstanding team behind you, you can do the impossible. [ Read the full article at this link ]
