Club Excellence Award

The Club Excellence Award is the ideal way to set your club on the path to continued success while gaining prestige for excelling in the areas of membership, service, leadership and organizational excellence, and marketing.

Upon receiving the award, a banner patch and pin will be awarded to your club president. But more importantly, your club’s membership will be revitalized, your service impact will grow and your members will see greater leadership opportunities.

Student Speaker Topics

Every year the sitting Council of Governors at their August COG Meeting are presented 5 Topics to choose from. They hash them over and sometimes change a word or two to make it a viable subject.

Ever wonder where these Topics come from? They come from you and me.

Every year over 50 Topics are presented to the MD4 Student Speaker Committee. Do you have a Topic that you think would be something the students 9-12 graders would like to research and present a 5 -10- minute speech about?

If so, please send any and all topics to DGE Scott Quinlan, 4L4 District Student Speaker Chair PCC David Radtke or the Student Speaker Foundation Chair Carol Linehan.

Please submit prior to August 1 st so that they can get your suggested topic to the MD4 Student Speaker


Thanks Lion Carol Linehan

Some 2023-2024 Fun

If you have pictures from the 23-24 year please share them on the district facebook page or with District Cab Sec Diane

What Do You Think?  

One More LCIF Donation?

For both our clubs and our individual members,

as this Lion year draws to a close, please everyone

take a careful look at where you/your club stands

financially and ask yourself: can we make one

more LCIF donation?  

In the coming year, I'll be writing about all the 

different projects, in the U.S. and around the world,

to give everyone a better understand of how Lions 

International puts your LCIF donations to work.

Every dollar...DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE...

in the lives of those most in need, who we are trying

to help. Yes, Lions do touch the lives of others

each and every day...making incredible difference

in those lives

Any LCIF questions? I'm always available to talk.

LCIF Timing...Prepare to be Patient

The processing time for our LCIF donations, and the receipt of MJF's and progressives have always been a bit longer than we would wish.

Now however, with the implementation of our brand new technology, things unintentionally are even more delayed.

We are being promised the situation is being  worked on...and hopefully (sooner, rather than later) the timing for things LCIF will soon be shortened greatly.

With a Spirit to Serve,

  Lion PDG Steve Lacey, LCIF Coordinator
