District 4-C6 November Cabinet Meeting

Join us for the second Cabinet Meeting at the Prunedale Grange Hall, 17890 Moro Road in Prunedale this Saturday, November 12th. The meeting will start at 9 am sharp, or risk the wrath of our Tail Twister!   Be sure to wear your best “western wear”, your chance to get ready for this year’s “California Gold Rush” themed convention in May.

Please rsvp to your Zone Chair if you want to join us for a fabulous lunch provided by the Prunedale Lions Club. Cost is $10.00 per person, and promises to be one of the best road-kills yet!! Please rsvp no later than Wednesday the 9th.

Be sure to invite your new members to join us! We are planning to welcome any Lion that is new as of January 1, 2011 as well as the club that claims them! We also will be recognizing those clubs that have already met their membership goals (and are on their way to exceeding them!).

Any club that has a club brochure, or business card, or any other marketing tools, please be sure to bring them to the meeting. We will be creating a “brag board” of all such items as a “visible” example of what is being used by our clubs so others can learn and duplicate!

Immediately following the cabinet meeting will be two training sessions; “So You Want To Be District Governor” by IPDG Ray Maglalang and “Tech Training for RC’s & ZC”s” by our Fabulous Tech Team.
