Lions District 4-C6 Directory 2014-2015 Ads – Order Form

Dear friends,

On July 1, 2014 I will be the District Governor for our Lions clubs District 4-C6 which includes Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey and San Benito Counties. We have 44 clubs with over 1200 members. I am very excited to be the next Governor. I hope that you are excited for me too.

Please consider the opportunity to take an ad in the Directory that will be distributed to Lions Club members in all four of our Counties plus to each of the District Governor and Vice District Governors in all 15 different Districts throughout our State of Calif from the far north to the far south. This is a great way to get your business name in front of many people that may be able to benefit from your services.

If you are not a business owner…How about doing a “shout out” to me and my executive cabinet for the Lions year 2014-15? The Directory will be used from July 1, 2014 to June 30, 2015.

To place an ad in next year’s district directory, please summit the District Directory 2014 – 2015 – Order Form, associated artwork, and payment check to Lion Melinda Blaza at the address on the order form. Deadline for submissions is Friday, May 23, 2014.

Thank you for supporting THE International organization that works for the Sight & Hearing impaired community. We were asked by Helen Keller to be the Knights of the Blind in the Crusade against Blindness. We also support many other programs and projects and aid in the disaster relief all over the world. For more information You can view our website at or see the International website at

Feel free to send a personal message to me and I will gladly respond.

Can You Help Morgan Hill Lions?

CCI Service Dog - 2014-03-08

 The Morgan Hill Lions club is reaching out on behalf of a special-needs family who is desperately looking for a rental home in the Morgan Hill/Gilroy area.

The family of four includes a husband and their young adult son both stricken with Huntington’s disease, a devastating, hereditary, degenerative brain disorder. The third member is an 83-year old disabled aunt. The family also has a live-in caregiver.

The family must move out from their current Morgan Hill rental in the next few months. Some local churches in Morgan Hill are helping towards the deposit for another house.

The family requires a single-story home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms. The home must allow for a certified service dog and two emotional support cats. They must be near a bus route so they can use the Outreach taxi service for the disabled.

If you can help this family or if you would like additional information, please contact:
Lion Jeanine (408) 210-5515(408) 210-5515.

The Morgan Hill Lions are neighbors helping neighbors. This neighbor needs help finding a new home. Please help spread the word through your friends and family.
