District 45 Lions gathered for their August 19th Cabinet Meeting hosted by the Vergennes Lions. The District Governor’s message was clear, “Have fun”. He emphasized his message by passing out loud ties for attendees to don for maximum color contrast. Lions enjoyed a wonderful lasagna dinner and Lion Kimberly Anderson from Lions International presented an inspirational update on the Lions Quest program. We hope to see you at the next cabinet meeting November 4th. Also don’t miss out on the NELC training opportunity October 21st, or the LCIF Banquet and Super Raffle following the next cabinet meeting. There’s plenty more fun to come!

Lions and LCIF are Responding To Hurricane Harvey
Whenever and wherever disasters strike, Lions and LCIF are among the first to offer aid.
I talked with Nate Miles of LCIF. On Saturday 8/27 an initial emergency relief check was issued to the Lions of Texas in the amount $100,000.
LCIF officials participated on a call yesterday with the Texas Leadership. Most of the area is still inaccessible so Lions activities are still being determined. They have formed a committee and soon will be able to assess the areas in which they will offer support. Lots of opportunities and they will need to coordinate with the other organizations also doing relief work. This will limit the duplication of efforts.
The 2017 Orleans Lions annual horseshoe tournament held at the northern end of Lake Willoughby, Westmore, VT was a great success. In addition to the competition, spectators enjoyed good food, a fun Lions raffle, and a - Farrel chair?
