Guest Post: Be Proud to Be a Lion!

Author: 2 Comments

Today’s guest blog post is by Lion Dianne Corlew, wife of Lions Vice President Bob Corlew. Follow Dianne on Facebook!

Vice President Bob and I recently completed the Centennial Bus Tour – visiting nine states in nine days! On the tour we had the opportunity to visit the South Carolina School for the Deaf and Blind. VP Bob had the pleasure of inducting a Leo Club at the school.

Alexis Falconberry, a blind student at the school and the Leo Club Secretary, made my day. After VP Bob had inducted the students in and said, “May I introduce you to the newest Leos.” She did a small cheer with her hands, jumped up and down, and said, “Yes! Yes! Yes!” with the happiest grin on her face. I was so happy to see the joy and enthusiasm of her and the other students. They are truly happy and proud to be Leos.

Then I sadly thought of so many of our Lions. Where is the enthusiasm? Where is the sense of being proud to be a Lion? Can we jump up and down with joy because we are part of the largest and most effective service organization in the world? We should. We need to think about that and look for our enthusiasm. I hope each of us realizes the privilege we have to be a Lion. I hope each of us learns a lesson from Alexis. I hope we because enthusiastic about being a Lion.
