Lions Of South Dakota
District 5 SE
Lion Dennis VanAsch DG
Our District Governor for the Lions Year 2014-2015 is Lion Dennis Van Asch
First I’d like to thank the Palace City Lions for hosting the Fall Forum last weekend. It was well planned and very much appreciated by all.
MEMBERSHIP GROWTH INITIATIVE
This year I am challenging every club to implement a Membership Development and Leader Development Plan—one that is unique to your club and your community. The “one-size-fits-all” model simply does not work.
It is my goal this year to have our Lions extend more invitations than we ever before, resulting in more new members for 5SE than ever before. JUST ASK one friend, neighbor or family member to JOIN US!
MONTHLY REPORTS ON MyLCI
We have a few clubs who have not reported any membership or activities for over 12 months. Please be sure to login and submit reports monthly, even if you’ve not had any membership change or any activities. If you have trouble maneuvering the LCI website, please let me know so we can help you out.
LION HENRY CARLSON SDLETB CHALLENGE REPORT
I would like to give a great big Lions thank you to Sioux Falls Downtown Lions Club member and friend Lion Henry Carlson for a challenge he issued to all Lions of District 5SE. Lion Henry agreed to match dollar-for-dollar up to $25,000.00 for donations to the South Dakota Lions Eye & Tissue Bank. Lion Henry has been a strong supporter of the Eye Bank for many years and he graciously continues to serve the Lions of South Dakota.
The challenge deadline was October 1, 2014. Henry offered the additional incentive of a two-to-one dollar match for all donations in excess of $25,000.
I am so pleased to report the 9/30/14 FINAL Lions Donation to the South Dakota Lions Eye & Tissue Bank was $26,183.66.
Lions Donations $25,000 + Henry's Dollar to Dollar Match $25,000 = $50,000. Lions Donation $1,183.66 + Henry's Two to One Dollar Match $2,367.32 = $3,550.98
Total SDLETB Donations: $53,550.98
Lion Henry Carlson has been an active member of the Sioux Falls Downtown Lions Club since 1962, and was honored with the Helen Keller award in 2003.
