District 2-X1 finished the month of February with a negative 62 (-62) in membership. Thank you to all of the Lions that have been working so hard to get our district to a positive number in membership. Believe it or not, we’re now going in the right direction. We were at a negative 79 at the end of January!!
Many thanks to the Dallas South Lions Club for hosting the Past District Governors Appreciation Dinner on February 3. There were 13 PDG’s in attendance, and had a great meal and fun night were had by all. This used to be an annual event hosted by several clubs, but over the years the tradition has gone away. That’s too bad, as all of these individuals have give so much to District 2-X1. I’m really proud to be a part of this group.
Our bi-annual trip to Kerrville for the Council of Governors Meeting and the Texas Lions Camp Board of Directors Meeting were again very special. It is really nice to get together with Lions from all over the state of Texas to share information about our districts and to do the business of the state.
Congratulations to PDG Carolyn Dorman! The Council of Governors appointed her as the MD-2 Centennial Celebration Coordinator for Texas. Please join her when asked as we prepare to host the celebration of LCI on the 100 year anniversary in 2017 here in District 2-X1. There will be plenty of jobs to go around so that we can all get involved. You will be hearing much more as time goes by.
You should already be signed up to attend the Texas Lions Forum in Austin, TX in March. Please make plans to attend the fourth Cabinet Meeting on March 28 that is being hosted by the Coppell Lions Club. You are also now able to purchase tickets for the Lions Sight & Tissue Foundation Denim and Diamonds event to be held March 14, and you can also now register for the District 2-X1 Convention to be held April 24 and 25 at the Wyndham Gardens Hotel (formerly The Night Hotel less the bar area) on LBJ Freeway.
Thank you for everything that each of you do as a Lion. Let’s keep on “Asking One.”
DG Ken Gleason
