President’s Service Blog
What an honor it was to attend our convention in Sydney this month – and to begin my year as your president. I am truly humbled to lead an organization that has provided hope to those in need for nearly 100 years. And, I’m looking forward to working with Lions around the world as we dedicate ourselves to service in the coming year.
Since service is the focal point of my presidential theme, A Beacon of Hope, I’m asking Lions to do a signature or significant service project during my official visits this year. I’ll also be posting first-hand accounts of projects to this blog to share my experiences with you.
Before Judy and I begin our travels to Lions clubs around the world, I wanted to share a short video from my first official visit as international president. Last weekend, Judy and I attended the opening ceremony of the 2010 Special Olympics USA National Games in Lincoln, Nebraska. During the event, we enjoyed showing our support for these truly inspiring athletes as part of a large Lions delegation from North Carolina.
It’s my privilege to represent you during the next 12 months, and to pilot the world’s global leader in community service. Serving together, I know that our light will shine brighter than ever.
