District Happenings

By Matt Soeldner, Secretary

The 88th Annual State Convention will be in Mansfield this coming weekend Friday April 29th to Sunday May 1st. This is open to all Lions and the finals of the Youth speech contest will be held on Saturday at a Time to be Determined. The topic for the speech this year is “In what ways has social media changed society?” Think about this as an older person and then see how a 16-18 year old feels.

In the 26 prior walks we have raised over 500,000.00. There will some changes to the walk this year which I will be able to provide once I get the packet from the District. One thing will not change and that is any youth groups like the Scouts, Leos or any group of that kind will get back 50% of what they raise for their groups This is a win, win for all.
