We are located on the eastern side of South Dakota; part of the MD5 District. We currently have 49 Lions, 2 Liones Clubs, as well as 1420 members in the District. 
   Our District Governor for the Lions Year 2016-2017 is Lion Larry Buntrock

Greetings Lions of District 5 SE from the International Convention in Fukuoka, Japan.    

I also bring greetings from our new President Bob Corlew and his wife Dianne from Tennessee.  President Bob’s theme the 2016 -2017 is: “New Mountains to Climb”. 
I want to thank you all for your support in becoming your District Governor.  It will be a great experience. In the newsletter, you will find a list of the 2016-2017 Cabinet.  Thank you all for volunteering to serve this year.  
With everyone’s support and work, we will have a great year.  Addresses and phone numbers will not be included here, but will be in the 5SE directory. 

The first Cabinet meeting will be Saturday, August 6th at the Elks Lodge, 600 West Kemp in Watertown.  Lunch will be served at 1 PM with the meeting to follow

I have started a new Cabinet position this year of Administrative Assistant.  PDG Joan Marlette accepted this position.  If you have any problems in submitting your new officers, activity and membership reports, Lion Joan will be available to help you with this.  Please feel free to call her for any questions.
I would like to thank PGD Jerry Voss for his year as District Governor and for always keeping me informed and communicating all District news so I am more prepared to serve.  
Some of my goals for the new year are to help get weak clubs get on their feet and to recruit more members, to start a new club in the District and to add new members to each club.  I ask each member of the District to help me reach these goals by working with the Global Leadership Team (GLT) and Global Membership Team (GMT) when asked.  If we all work together, we will make District 5 SE the best.  

If your club has a specific date for my visitation, please let me know via email as soon as possible so I can get you on my schedule.  My email is    Upcoming dates:

I am looking forward to visiting each club and getting to know as many of you as possible. Each year we face new challenges.  Each can be viewed as a mountain.  Climbing these mountains provide a chance for all Lions to make the world a better place.  I hope that we can climb new mountains together and make 5SE a better place to live.

 Yours in Lionism
