It is hard to believe that half of this Lions Year is over. District Governor Randy, 1st VDG Vince, and 2nd VDG Ken have been working hard for all the Lions in 31F and across the state. As a District, we have continued to live up to our motto, “WE SERVE.” We are looking forward to the rest of the year.
As Nominations Chair, I am proud to announce that we have a full slate of officers for 2013-2014.
1st VDG Vince Schimmoller is our nominee for District Governor
2nd VDG Ken Smith is our nominee for 1st VDG
Lion R. Lynn McCaskill of the Ellerbe Lions Club is the nominee as 2nd VDG
Lion Lynn has been a member of the Ellerbe Lions Club for close to 40 years. He served as District Secretary and Treasurer for PDG GB Lamm and has served his Club in a number of positions. He is a great Lion and will be an asset for the District. Lion Lynn is owner and pharmacist at Ellerbe Pharmacy.
According to 31-F Constitution and By-Laws if the current 1st VDG is nominated for office of DG and the current 2nd VDG is nominated for office of 1st VDG, no other nomination will be accepted.
All candidates for the office of 2nd VDG must file their intention at least one day prior to the 31-F convention. Only those qualified candidates’ names will be placed in nomination.
Each Club can have one (1) voting delegate per each ten (10) members based on the December 31, 2012 membership.
PDG Jerry Lee Thomas
