Hello North Carolina Lions!
PDG Terrie Grooms and I would like to invite you to attend your upcoming North Carolina Lions State Convention coming up the weekend of April 26th – our theme is……MISSION POSSIBLE……..THE JOURNEY COUNTINUES!
Our special guest speaker will be Past International President, Al Brandel of Melville, New York who was elected president Lions Clubs International at the association’s 91st International Convention, held in Bangkok, Thailand, June 23 through27, 2008.
Why should you attend?
Because this is our opportunity as Lions of North Carolina to meet other Lions from across the state and come away with ideas and information on how we can serve and educate our communities on one of our Core Focus areas – Diabetes!
Our goal is that we would all leave that weekend feeling educated and empowered to execute Diabetes education and other service projects in our communities.
Here are just a few things happening……..
North Carolina Past District Governors’ Organization Captains Choice Golf Tournament (flyer attached) held on Friday morning – all are welcome!
Our Strides Walk will be held during the entire weekend with opportunities to support our DAPS program and learn more about Diabetes and how it impacts so many families.
We’ll kickoff Family Fun Night with good food, great fellowship and a fabulous family friendly magician!
