District Reorganization Held

District Governor Sam Wagner conducted our annual district reorganization and training session this past Saturday.  There were breakout meetings for training for club presidents, club secretaries, club treasurers, and zone chairpersons.  Before concluding, the attendees also shared information about fundraisers and service projects and Past Council Chairperson (PCC) Steve Benedict inducted our district officers.  Best wishes to DG Sam, Vice District Governors Cathy Baker and Peg Hummel, and all of our clubs for a great year ahead.

Here are a few more pictures from the event.

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.

Lioness of the Year Nominations

Attached below is Lioness of the Year Award Form and it appears to be the standard application form, unchanged since 2011.  The collection of the sub-district nominees is to be submitted by DG Keldeen to our Council Chair at our upcoming Feb. 2-3, 2019 State Council Meeting in Altoona.
As this is an annual recognition process, you may already have chosen someone to nominate.  If not, please consider nominating a club member, then submit to me no later than January 30th, so DG Keldeen may submit our sub-district Lioness of the Year recommendation.
