Club Excellence Process

PDG Joe and Lion Linda Pugliese and LEO Chairs Bob and Valerie Long attended a Club Excellence Process training while at sea aboard the Carnival Legend during a cruise following the USA Canada Forum.  It was organized by MD-18F GLT Coordinator Kembra Smith from Georgia.  There were 38 Lions from all over the USA and Canada in attendance and 50 Lions showed up for the group photograph later in the day.

The Club Excellence Process (CEP) is a workshop program dedicated to club improvement. A club that decides to participate in the CEP will be guided by a facilitator through four steps of approximately an hour each. A participating club will examine their community’s needs, analyze their membership experience, use resources and develop action plans.  Click here for more information on the LCI website.  District 4-C6 GLT Chair is Steve Brown.

Season’s Market Place

1535 Landess Ave, Milpitas CA

This is the time when we can come together in one location and share with our community what services we have in the City of Milpitas. This is a great opportunity for our residents to better understand the services available and how they can benefit from these services or where they can volunteer or make contributions. There will also be an AJ Robinson Health Screening Van where you can have hearing, vision, blood pressure & glucose tested for free.

The highlight of this event is the Lions Club International “Sharing the Vision Campaign, a global Lions campaign focused on the importance of healthy vision. We will also be collecting used eyeglasses on that day. On October 31 is Sight Night, instead of candies we collect used eyeglasses. The eyeglasses collected will be sorted by prescription, cleaned and distributed to visually impaired people throughout the world.
For more information about the event or If you wish to participate to be a vendor contact us by phone or by e-mail.

The format will be similar to last year’s and the LEOs will be meeting on September 26th at Cupertino High School to finalize the sessions and trainers.

This year’s Academy will include lunch for the participants as well as a session following lunch to either plan a project or perform one! Registration will open at 8:30 am, “Welcome” at 9 am and the first sessions will start promptly at 9:30 am. Current plan is for the day to end by 4 pm. More to follow after September 26th.

If your LEOs Club Officers would like to be part of the planning session on September 26th, please let them know to be at the high school by 6:15 for a planning session to happen from 6:30-8:30 pm.  We will have a session for all Lions interested in starting a LEOs Club during lunch.  All LEOs and LIONS planning to attend MUST RSVP to LEO Chairs Bob & Val Long no later than Monday October 22nd.
