A J Robinson Mobile Heath Screening Unit Replacement Project

Hello District 4-C6,

As many of you know we kicked off the AJ Replacement Project at our First Cabinet Meeting of this Lion year. At that time I gave a slide presentation for the need to replace the unit. This is going to be a 18 month project and it is the hope of the AJ Foundation that we have a new Unit by the end of my year as Governor. I know that there are many questions and I am making myself available to make presentations to your Club to answer any questions that you may have. I am also including in this post the narrative that the A J Foundation sent to the Sharks Foundation for a grant of $60,000.00. We will find out sometime in September if we were selected for the grant.
I know that there are many good causes out that our clubs support. Please keep the AJ Robinson Heath Screening Unit Replacement Project one of them.
