MD1 2019 Convention Celebration of Service Presentation and Poem

Fellow MD-1 Lions,
It was an honor when the 2018-19 Council of governors asked me to prepare the 'Celebration of Service' memorial for our recent convention.   Following the presentation I was asked on how a copy of the poem 'When I Am Gone' and the Powerpoint presentation could be obtained.  They are attached here.
Thank you to all for the compliments following the ceremony.
