This year has been a blast. We threw a few stones into the pond and the ripples are still spreading out today. I want to thank everyone for their hard work this year at all our events. Tonight, I’d like to share with you two things I learned serving as your president and a mission, if you choose to accept it, I hope will inspire you for next year. The first, is the power of “Wait, what?” moments; Which led me to understand what it means to be a Lion; – And finally, the mission: “If this were your last year as a Lion, how would you make it be the best year ever?”…

Here is one more six-word story I’d like to add: “Hey Matt, How can I help?” – For me, this says it all! It brought welcoming music to my ears time and time again. It enabled us to succeed with integrity and humility. So many of you have walked the talk and did what you said you would do. It’s made for an outstanding Lions’ year. Thank you!! As a runner, after months of building-up miles, there’s nothing more satisfying…

Have you ever set out in search of one thing, and end-up finding something really cool and unexpected? Lately, for me, it seems to happen every week. The latest was at the SAS Global Forum in Orlando, April 1-5. Think geekiest conference ever; 6,000+ statisticians and data analyst coming together to learn, connect, and get pumped about what is possible! How many events have you gone to and got to make a picture out of LEGOS to help 2,000 less fortunate students…

President’s Message – Mar 2017

“Not above you, not beneath you, but with you!” We say these words, together, at the beginning of each meeting. These words are the essence of what it means to be a Lion. It succinctly condenses our Code of Ethics (highlighted in the sidebar) into 9 simple words. This is not to say that everything will go perfectly and our efforts will never go awry. On the contrary, like any good family, we’ll argue, we’ll disagree, and we’ll make mistakes. We are all human.

“Our very survival depends on our ability to stay awake, to adjust to new ideas, to remain vigilant and to face the challenge of change.” (Martin Luther King, Jr, “Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community?”) Facing the “challenge of change” certainly rings true as we approach our 31st Charity Auction. This year we have two huge changes, a new home at Stonehill College and an online auction that
