The White Cane Kickoff meeting was well attended and I thank everyone and every club that made an effort to attend. Also thanks to the Lumberton Club for hosting all of us! We went home with new enthusiasm for the year and a great start was made in the giving to White Cane. $14,430 was turned over to Steve Walker that day with promises from other clubs. I am waiting to see the first quarter report in September to gauge our year, but optimism is high. Funds are needed throughout the year to support the many programs and services that we need to provide to other less fortunate citizens in our society. We have a great NCL organization that administers many of these programs and services. It is up to all of us to help provide the necessary funding to meet our budget for this Lions year.
Please call or e-mail me if you would like a program for your club. Between August 25 and September 15 please contact me by cell phone (910-590-6501) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org) as Lion Piet and I will be on a 3 week vacation.
Thanks for everything all of the Clubs do to make a difference in their community, their state, their country and their world. Every thing that one of us or a group of us does for someone else, no matter how small, makes a difference in someone life.
