1BK Update on LCI 2018 Int'l Convention in Las Vegas
Dec-06-2017

Fellow 1BK Lions:
Recently, we got together to discuss the International Convention. Yes, there’s a committee of 10 District representatives meeting to discuss what we can do to make the trip more enjoyable for all that attend, and maybe save some money. I know you’ve seen this through our Cabinet Meeting notes, but I thought I’d publish, once again, a small article about the upcoming convention coming up in June.
The Convention will take place in Las Vegas! You know how much fun that can be if you’re not careful.
The last date to register, for the discount rate of $150 each, is rapidly approaching; it’s 1/12/18. After that, it goes to $200 each. So, don’t delay if you want the discount. And if you do register, remember to get the room at Luxor Tower. Once again, that’s Luxor Tower. That’s the hotel for the Illinois delegation; not the Luxor. Please keep this in mind when registering.
The Convention will, of course, take place in the Summer so dress accordingly. To that end, the Parade uniform has changed to allow khaki shorts, or capris. It still has a white polo and the blue vest; I’m not sure about the shoes, but I’m sure it’ll be something “summery”. By the way, Lion Bob Block has some of these vests available to purchase at the bargain price of $5. (gov8990@aol.com)
And finally, the Committee is looking for volunteers. Check it out on the Convention website at Lions2018lasvegas.org to see what you can do lend a hand. There’s plenty to do!!!!
Until then, we’ll be seeing you around, and have a Merry Christmas!

Dave Wheeler, PDG MD-1B

Lions and LCIF Responded To Hurricane Harvey
Sep-03-2017

My Dear Lions,
 
On Friday, August 25th, Hurricane Harvey made its way ashore on the central Gulf Coast of Texas with winds of 125 miles per hour. As I draft this letter, the central coast of Texas, including metropolitan Houston, is still being affected by unprecedented amounts of rain fall and potentially devastating flooding.  The nearly 17 million residents in the path of the storm will be dealing with the aftermath for weeks and possibly months to come.
 
Lions Clubs International, through our Foundation (LCIF), has responded with emergency catastrophe grant in the amount of US$100,000. The grant will allow Lions in the area of impact to provide life-saving supplies of food, water, blankets and other necessities. 
 
We never know when or where disaster will strike. But when it does, LCIF emergency and major catastrophe grants enable local Lions to respond, making an immediate impact in the hardest hit areas – around the world.
 
Your donation to LCIF makes it possible for us to respond at a moment’s notice to this and other disasters as they strike.  
 
Lions members are the most generous people in the world.  Please consider a donation to LCIF to assist Lions in short-term and long-term disaster response.
 
I know you join me in keeping the victims of this latest natural disaster in your thoughts and prayers.  
 
 Together we make a significant difference.
 
Namaste,
Dr. Naresh Aggarwal
International President
