District Governor - Alan Good

A quarter of the way through my year and now into the routine of work, emails, meetings. Where did that time go?

Have had the DG road shows in Somerset and Devon. We had a good turnout in Somerset and achieved a lot during the evening. I have kept the notes and have proposed that I will do a follow up early next year. I now have a couple of venues for Cornwall and will be doing the DG Road show there on a date to be advised in the New Year. Many thanks to those who turned out in Somerset. As far as Devon is concerned, where were you?

Lions will be 100 years old in 2017 and the Centennial Website is now up and running. You will be able to find lots of things about Lions including historical photos, information about the Centennial Service Challenge and tools for your Centennial celebration. Plan now, as it will soon be here and let us use the opportunity to promote our Lions Organisation.

Devon County, Somerset and Royal Cornwall Shows have been and gone for 2014 and the Lions were there helping with Diabetes Screening and using the opportunity to
promote our organisation. Hundreds have been tested for diabetes and blood pressure with quite a significant number being referred to their GP. This is Lions in action and a reminder that we are a service organisation.

I have started to receive some Peace Posters for judging – what a fantastic standard they are! I hope a few more will arrive and would ask that all clubs consider taking part next
time. Kits go on sale from January so check out the rules and deadlines and visit your local school before Christmas and sign them up. Let’s try and have an International winning entry from the South West. The more entries we have the better the chance.

Our Convention is set for 13, 14 and 15 March 2015 in Croyde Bay — planning is well underway –details will be available shortly. Apart from the social events and having plenty of fun, this is also our Districts AGM. It is your opportunity to put forward resolutions for discussion during the AGM so please discuss within your clubs — I am sure David Rosson will be able to help and advise if you have a resolution you wish to put forward. I know we have to have some business on the Saturday but the weekend is also about meeting other Lions, friends and generally having a good time.

Commencing with this newsletter I hope to have a different District officer each issue giving a brief description about themselves and the position they hold in our District. There will also be a glamour photo so that you can put a name to the face.

Our District has welcomed 15 new members during July and August. Keep bringing them in and show the other 12 districts in 105 how to do it.
Remember the future is bright, the future is blue and yellow.
District Governor Lion Alan
