Greetings fellow Special K Lions,

The Patriots are winning, the leaves are turning and District 33K is busier than ever, it must be Fall in Special K!!

As CST Ivette and I travel around to visit the clubs, we are overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity we experience, but most of all, it is your energy, enthusiasm and passion that absolutely blows us away. I have never seen so much excitement in our District and it is because the Centennial is a booming success and we are attracting new members to join us in service.

North America just had its most successful quarter in 20 years and September and October have continued the wave. In our District, we are steadily rising in new members and we see no sign that the trend will not continue.

Thank you all for your dedication to helping our International President and I meet our goals for the year.  One goal was to induct 40 new women as part of my net 38 increase. That was a yearlong goal. Well, I am going to have to increase that goal, because y'all achieved that goal by last week!

May we achieve that same success with our other big goals for this year:

- Increase Mass Lions Eye Research donations by 10% from last year's numbers;

- 33 for 50 collections that bring in an additional $9000 to LCIF by raising 50 cents per member per meeting for 10 months , or, $5 per member;

- having a positive net 38 increase in membership by June 30, 2017;

- have all of our clubs report their completion of Centennial challenge activities encompassing vision, youth, hunger and the environment

I know we can achieve all of this, and more.

Some key events coming up:

Second advisory Monday November 28 at the Randolph Elks at 6:45 pm

Midwinter registration forms are now available for February 17-19 at the Dedham Hilton, you are not going to want to miss this one folks, trust me.

The Midwinter Ad Book forms are also available. 2nd VDG Deb and RC Peg have the information ready to go.

Please, please, let us know when you are having events so we can plan to attend and make sure that PDG Doreen Martel and 2nd VDG Deb Hayes get the dates and times and places so we can get it on the website calendar and our District Facebook page.

Whew, what a great start Lions. We have accomplished so much but have so much more to do. CST Ivette, 1st VDG Margaret, 2nd VDG Deb and I are just getting started; it’s going to be a great ride. Are you with us?

Yours in Lionism;  DG Andy Porter

District Governor 2016-17

On the Road with DG Andy

Posted By PDG_Doreen

Hello fellow Lions:

It has been one busy September in the district. We have been blessed with awesome weather and our clubs have not wasted any time to get out to our communities and do what we do best... " WE SERVE"!

In our travels DG and I have done just about anything so far. We have visited clubs, attended Region meetings, danced with the New England Himalayan Club at their Teejevent, marched along the mighty Marlboro Club at the Labor Day Parade and attended community day events.  Let me tell you folks... What energy out there!  

You folks have been doing a great job with the dues... a few more stragglers out there. Now that most clubs have had the opportunity to have their first meeting, I am confident that we will be able to close the books for the first half dues of the year! Remember that this is one item you can make points towards Best Club Award! (hint, hint).

In this edition of the District newsletter, you will find:
•    DGs message and pictures
•    GMT newsletter
•    District Club events
•    Centennial Spooktacular
As always we hope you are enjoying our monthly Newsletter.  Have a great Sunday and a fantastic week!

Yours in Lionism
