Directory Advertising 2009-2010

Yes, it’s only January, but it’s never too early to start planning your advertising in next year’s directory. Publishing in July, this directory will reach over 500 Lions in this district and across California. This is a great opportunity to advertise your business, acknowledge or congratulate club or district leadership or advertise your club project or event.

As of this writing, premium placement is still available (inside front, inside and outside back covers). In these difficult economic times, you’ll be pleased to know that rates have remained the same as last year.

The earlier your payment is received, the better placement your ad will get in the book. Payment and finished artwork are due by May 15th. Download the order form. The three boxes you will see on the form represent the three ad sizes available.

Please contact Lion Hugh Donagher 650-224-5471 or hugh (dot) donagher (at) yahoo (dot) com with any questions.

Monday Night Bingo

TO ALL CLUBS: Lions Clubs help keep the Monday Night Bingo going; the help of the volunteers is the vital means of support for the Blind Center. Without this support, the Blind Center is suffering.

Recently, volunteers have been very scanty in appearance, and this is a plea to all clubs to please remind their members to kindly try to make it more often, or make a re-commitment to regularly volunteer their help.

Thank you everyone!
