CLEVELAND LIONS CLUB
Cleveland Lions met at La Costa Seafood at their usual noon meeting time for a special occasion. Raylene Atkinson was installed as the second female President. Atkinson was a Lioness before Lions Clubs International allowed women to become Lions. Now she energetically takes the helm of Cleveland Lions Club. In her acceptance speech, she said, “Thank you, Lion District Governor Bonita Davis, Immediate Past President Thomas Higgins. I’m sure that sounds good to you! I am both honored and humbled to accept this leadership position, and I thank you for what support you have offered me during my 3.5 years membership with the Cleveland Lions Club. When I joined Lions only 3.5 years ago, I never intended holding this position. But, I am really looking forward to this coming year. I have two goals that I want to achieve over the next 12 months. The first one is to increase our membership by 12 members. That is only one member per month! I am already working on four so that only leaves eight more! My second goal is to let the community know that we have an active Lions Club and what we do. Thank you, Lion Bonita, for reminding us of why we are Lions and what Lionism is. I have had several people ask me what Lions are and what we do, as well as why I am a Lion. We need to define our WHY as a club and continue to make a difference in our community. If we work on this second goal, it will be easy to achieve the first goal! Thank you, Lion Thomas, for leading us over the past two years, and thanks to each of you for putting your trust in me to lead our club through this next year as we serve together.” President-Elect Raylene Atkinson
