On January 13, 2022 it was our founder Melvin Jones 143rd birthday and we will be having a celebration for all new Melvin Jones Fellows and Progressive Melvin Jones Fellows in May, 2022.  We are asking the support from our District Governor teams to submit any new names that are part of this new elite group so that they could be recognized for this event.  You may send the information to myself or let your District Coordinators know the name of the recipients and their club name also.

On Sunday June 5, 2022 from 10 am - 2 pm CDT (Chicago) which is 9:00 am -1:00 pm our time we will once again be holding a Tell -A -Thon which proved to be very successful last year.  Attached you will find information on this event hosted by our 1st International Vice President Brian Sheehan.  I would encourage the governor teams to look at these attachments and ensure the information goes out to all your clubs.

In the month of March in Canada 400 cheques were mailed by Canadians to the Lions of Canada Fund for LCIF totally $254,269.00.   Of these donations 50 % were sent by individuals with over 90% of them going to Refugees and Displaced Persons (Ukraine).   Thank you to all Lions Canada wide for your compassion.

We now have 15 Model Clubs representing our Multiple District.
