November was another very busy month. Thank you to all of the Lions that participated in the Veterans Day Parade on November 11.
We also had a number of Lions from our district in attendance at the Feast of Sharing. Thank you to all of the Lions that attended for representing District 2-X1, and thank you to IPDG Darla Wisdom for heading up this activity.
On membership, District 2-X1 finished the month of November with a negative 77 (-77). During the month of November, we added 21 members, but we dropped 14. I would appreciate it if all clubs would work more on adding new members than dropping members.
Lions Clubs International is continuing the membership program called Ask1. They are asking for each Lion to Ask1 person to join a Lions Club. This membership drive is being conducted globally. Please do your part by asking 1 person that you know to join your Lions Club. After you get that new member, Ask1 more person to consider joining your Lions Club.
I hope that each of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. It was personally a much-needed time to reflect on all of the blessings that have been bestowed on my family and me. I’m thankful for my family and my friends, and I’m especially thankful for my Lion friends. I feel so honored to be a Lion, and I’m much honored to serve as your District Governor (again.)
Christmas will have passed before the next newsletter comes out, so Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy Holidays to all others that don’t celebrate these two events. May each of you have a Happy New Year!!
Happy New Year! Hey, that reminds me, please be sure to sign up for the Mid-Winter Conference to be held January 24 at Tyler Street United Methodist Church, 927 W. 10th Street, Dallas, TX. Our sponsor for the conference will be the Dallas Oak Cliff Lions Club.
Thank you for everything that each of you do as a Lion.
DG Ken Gleason
