Back Packs for Kids

This year we will have one location as we did last year, the location will be the San Martin Lions Hall. The date will be Saturday July 28th and the time will be 11:00am to start back pack stuffing. Last year we did 2000 back Packs and it took around two hours to complete the process.

As in the past if you order back packs you need to have at least one of your club members to help with the assembly and pick-up of the back packs you have ordered. This is a fun event and if you have participated in the past you have firsthand knowledge of what a great time we have. The cost of the back packs this year is $17.00. This includes the backpack and all the supplies that are stuffed into it. The retail cost for the backpacks alone is $19.95 but because of buying in bulk we are able to keep the cost down to $17.00.

URGENT MESSAGE: August Council of Governors CANCELED

URGENT MESSAGE to all California Lions:

The California Lions MD4 Council of Governors Organizational Meeting in Redding, August 3 -5, 2018 is cancelled due to fire conditions. The host Red Lion Hotel has advised that their facility has been transformed to support the fire fighters and other emergency personnel. Right now we ask that you keep everyone affected in your thoughts and prayers, including the firefighters, first responders, our Lions brothers and sisters, friends, neighbors and the beautiful communities up and down our state that are in harm’s way.

District Governor Sue Kerr and her District C1 committee will oversee formal cancellation of the Council of Governors hotel contract and the voiding of individual Red Lion room reservations that were secured through the Lions discounted room rate, and also meal reservation payments.

Plan B for the Council of Governors Organizational Meeting is as follows so that necessary MD4 business is conducted:

1. Student Speakers Contest: Lion Perry Lynn, Student Speakers Chair, and his committee will meet including via conference call to refine the over 150 submissions of proposed topics, and submit a short list of about five to the District Governors. The DG Council will schedule to meet via conference call within the next two weeks to select the topic. DG Don Gall will oversee this process.

2. Committee Budget hearings: Lion Mike Ferrier, Chair, Budget & Finance Committee, will email a form to each MD4 Committee Chair regarding budgetary line item financial requests. Conference calls may then be scheduled for hearings, as may be determined by the Budget Committee. This work will be overseen by DG Skip Zehnder and is to be completed in August.

3. 2VDG training: The plan is to re-schedule for Wednesday, October 24 at the Santa Maria Radisson. DG Dave Hubbard is facilitating with the hotel. Essentially, the Fall COG will commence one day earlier to cover any necessary remaining business from the cancelled Redding COG.

Thank you for your concern and understanding.
