District 2-S-2 L-3 Zone Chairman and Dayton Noon Lions Club President Mike George attended the USA/Canada Leadership Forum in Calgary, Alberta Sept. 15 - 17.
'I had three goals while attending the forum,' said George. ' The first was to get my Bachelor's Degree from Lions University. The second was to gather as much information as I could on eye scanning equipment so that our club could make a decision on how we are going to proceed on that avenue. The third was to learn anything and everything I could that would help my club, zone and district.'
George and four other members of the local service club will be attending a class for state certification for eye scanning on Thursday, September 29.
The Dayton Noon Lions, who continue to grow as well as expand their service opportunities, are also looking for a few good women and men to help with serving even more.
'We're looking for those couples or individuals who have a strong desire to help the less fortunate,' stated George. 'Our service themes are Diabetes, Hunger, Vision, Childhood Cancer and Environment. This year we're going to include Juvenile Diabetes and Childhood Cancer in our service projects, something we didn't do last year.'
If you're interested in finding out more about Lionism, the club invites you to attend one of their meetings or join them in one of their service projects.
'We're going to have a presence at The Family Night Out event on October 4th as well as sponsoring a blood drive from 2 - 7 pm at the Community Center on October 18,' said the Lions Club President.
The club will meet again on October 5th and on October 19th at noon at the Texas Kountry Kitchen and on Tuesday, October 11th at 7pm at Texas Seafood and Steakhouse next to the Best Western on US 90.
