How Are You Doing?

As we head into the end of the calendar year and the half way point of our Lion year, it's a good time to take stock of our accomplishments to date and refocus our efforts to meet our 2017-18 goals of...

   • Improving the member experience through relevant service projects.
   • Adding a new service project that reaches new portions of your community.
   • Making meetings fun.
   • Increasing recognition of individual Lions and the impact your club's service has.
   • Growing your membership by two Lions.
   • Raising awareness of all the great work you do.

The healthiest clubs in our District are already doing all of these things and are reaping the benefits of strong stable membership that is able to meet the growing needs of their communities. If you are struggling with reaching your goals, please reach out to myself or one of the other members of the Executive Team. We are here to help, as is the entire District Cabinet. All you have to do is ask. Over the years, we've found that if one club has a need/question, others are likely to have the same need/question. As a matter of fact, a great deal of the training and informational sessions provided by the District come directly from your input. For example, the October Region Meetings brought a number of questions about how clubs can take better advantage of the power of Facebook. We heard you and Social Media Guru Brian McKay has a free Social Media Lab On Building Your Social Media Presence scheduled for Saturday, January 13th from 10 am to 12 pm at the Fitchburg Public Library (5530 Lacy Rd, Fitchburg, Wisconsin 53711). RSVP by January 10th at

Thank you for all you do! Happy Holidays, you totally rock!
