by Lion Jim Devenny, Past President
On July 1, the Iroquois-Matilda Lions Club moved into a new Lions year.
There are some changes – Lion Carol Thompson will be our new President; Lion Evonne Delegarde will become our Zone Chairperson, and Lion Renée Devenny will become the District Governor.
Our Club has served the community, Lions District, and Lions International for over seventy years. We excel as a Club, because of our members and the community support we receive. By working together, we make our community a better place to live. The Lions cannot do it all.
We need, appreciate, and say thanks for the support of family and friends in our many adventures.
Even though last year was a Covid-19 year and we needed to adapt to changing health constraints, we accomplished a lot. With member support, and innovative thinking, we were able to re-imagine our projects and find new ways to serve our community and Lions International.
We were able to stay connected as a Club. We remained visible in the community, providing service and support when able.Look at what we accomplished last year!
