Message from Fiabetes Chair - Lion Theresa

I have William Osborne attending Sat. Afternoon at DGO Feb 2nd.

He is regional chairperson for Diabetes. His son has type 1 diabetes and attends camp.

The multiple district diabetes chairperson is Lion Don Pickrell. 

Any clubs that has done anything for Diabetes can you please report to me ASAP.
So I can report on Sat.

I have heard from two clubs so far.
I know there is more out there that has done stuff but just hasn’t reported yet. 

Waiting to hear from you. 

Diabetes chairperson 
Lion Theresa Lewis.

CLERC Update

CLERC continues to roll along nicely, thanks to the hard work and dedication of Lions Club Volunteers. Core executive staff continue to drive operations in a professional, respectful and efficient direction. This quarter we sent 68,824 pairs of glasses to 14 different countries. Kudos to the Devon Lions who sourced 30,000 pair of new reading glasses and sunglasses that we just finished packaging up.
   The new Nissan van with the new logos is a hit. We are getting requests from clubs to use it in their town parades. The Logo is so catchy and promotes Lions so well, that we are replacing our old peeling window logos with a continuation of this theme. We have shut down the subsidiary in PEI as getting glasses was a problem. PEI will now send the glasses that are collected to our other CLERC satellite in NFLD. We are going to have to replace the old lens meters (2) in NFLD as they are basically on their last legs. We are having an exclusive Leo day at CLERC. Lil Legendary Leo’s (FLC), Sundre and Nanton Leo’s will all be in attendance. Presently settling a date with Trey Southgate (AB Leo Chair) as students have exams and other initiatives that we have to work around. We have so many Grade 12 students that need volunteer hours to graduate that we have also set up a specific day for them as well. On January 29th we are doing a power point presentation at the Strathmore School. Our supply of glasses is on the rise and we are slowly building an inventory. We are now into a busy season where a lot of glasses will be shipped. Donations of glasses are always welcomed. Please remind Clubs to check out our FaceBook page as we post in it and on Lions of Canada FB Page as well.
