PA Lions for Care for Kids

As a reminder, MD-14 has created a challenge to raise $100,000 for the Four Diamonds Fund to find a cure for Pediatric Cancer. The PA Lions have committed their support and encourage individual clubs to donate, as well as to encourage individuals in their communities to donate. The PA Lions Care for Kids has a separate website which individual districts and clubs can promote (such as through social media).

February 2019 Cabinet Meeting

If you missed the District 14-T February Cabinet meeting, you missed quite a lot. We recognized the winners of our Peace Poster Contest, had a Leadership presentation by PDG Bill Tuttle to discuss the 10 characteristics of a leader, voted on new screening equipment, and had numerous committee reports.

To view some of the moments from the meeting, see these pictures from Lion John Petrina – https://photos.app.goo.gl/vFArPhXpXo9A1SjE9.
