philippines typhoonLion Rudy and Lion Flor Nasol will be going back to the Philippines in September.  They have just come back from there and told us the children need clothes badly and people need tarps for their roofs that are missing!  Also books for kids to read.
philippines2Two islands were hit hard, Leyte and Samar.  I hope when our Lions come to the convention, they will bring these items with them and give them to Lion Rudy or Lion Flor.   If you can’t find them, look for me and I will make sure they get them!
