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.

New England Lions Council Fall Conference
On 10/21 the Lions of New England gathered at Mt Snow Vermont for training, fellowship and fun.
Of particular interest to all local Lions club leaders was the 10am presentation of the Constitutional Area 1-A Global Action Team. Then the Rhode Island Lions disussed how the Rhode Island Lions Sight Foundation hosted it’s 10th annual Visually Impaired Persons (VIP’s) Fishing Tournament. They showed us the ropes and challenged other districts to host similar VIP fishing events. Equally exciting was a presentation from New Englands premier Guide Dog provider.
