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.

San Martin Lions Need Volunteers!

This Friday April 11 the San Martin Lions have provided the use of the AJ Robinson Mobile Health Unit for our local elementary school, San Martin Gwinn Elementary, to provide needed vision checks. Unfortunately most of our members are not available on a Friday to provide the volunteers necessary to staff the unit. We have two shifts that need to be manned:

Shift 1:    7:30am – 11:30am

Shift 2:    11:00am-2:30pm    (We have one volunteer for this shift)

WE WILL TRAIN YOU! We need two volunteers to do eye checks and one more to check in the children for each shift. You need not be a Lion.

Please e-mail if you can help. I will remove this request when I have received the required volunteers.

Thank you!
