The Governor's Welcome

Welcome Fellow Lions, Lioness, and Leos to a new Lions year. I would like to thank you for electing me to serve as your District Governor and to those who accepted Cabinet leadership positions. The positive attitudes and willingness of these Lions to serve will most certainly contribute to a successful year.
The theme selected by Lions International President, Dr. Jitsuhiro Yamada is “Dignity, Harmony, and Humanity.”  The central element of this theme is peace, hope, determination, teamwork and uniting people through service.  Service to others has been the focus of Lions for nearly 100 years. In order to reach the Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 100 million people by June 30, 2018, we must increase our output of service to benefit youth, vision, hunger and the environment.  In serving others, we are changing the world and sowing seeds of harmony, understanding and peace.
My theme for the year is “Focus on Service.”  We must focus on our central services of Eye Sight, Hearing, Diabetes, Literacy, Environment and Community Humanitarian Needs.  Every Lion in our District needs to get energized since we need to triple our efforts in order to contribute our fair share in meeting the Centennial Service Challenge.  I am proud to serve as your District Governor.
I am looking forward to working with you this year.
Yours in Lionism,
Lion M. Lee Winder
