District 9x9 Club Contest

 

 

WE SERVE simply put, that is what we do as Lions. Wherever there is a need. Our communities, and our world are important to us. As club members we team up for a common cause. We enjoy sharing quality time with Lions in our own club and neighboring clubs. This contest is a fun way to get involved, both as a club and as an individual Lion. Each participant in this contest, whether as a club, or as an individual Lion, will be recognized. The winning club, from each Region, will receive a patch for their banner. Individuals will receive Certificates of Appreciation for their participation. There will be (3) Lions Club winners in the District; one from each Region. There will also be one Lioness Club winner. Winning clubs, the second runner up in each Region and all individual participants, will be recognized at the District 9x9 Breakfast at the State Convention. To receive credit for points, all activities must be reported on the Membership & Activity Report (M&A) that you submit to me by the 5th of each month; use extra sheets if necessary attached to this report. The contest will run from July 1, 2004 through April 30, 2005. Get involved, stay involved, make a difference, and have fun!
