Time to gear up for the District Convention, May 2-4 in Santa Maria at the Santa Maria Radisson (near the airport). Grab the Western Costume Contest flyer, the Food Fair Contest flyer and the Table Decoration Contest flyer.
Also, think of who in your club (or outside if you wish) who is worthy of being our District Lion of the Year for 2013-14. Please nominate them using either the word or PDF form and submit to Lion District Governor Margaret Dunlevy by April 15.
The January District Newsletter is out. Grab a copy here.

List Your Event
We have a new procedure for listing your events -- an all-in-one email address that is sent automatically to the District Secretary, District Webmaster and Google Calendar Coordinator. Just send your information and flyers to firstname.lastname@example.org. If any any other district officer would like to be on the list, please email your request to the same address and we'll oblige you. You'll get lots of email.
If you are thinking of holding an event, don't see any conflicts on the District Calendar but want to know if there might be any conflicts on your prospective date, please put "Planning" in the subject line so we'll know not to post it. You can also list several prospective dates and ask for guidance as to which would have the fewest confilicts. Lion District Secretary Denise Daniel will get back to you shortly with guidance.
When you send event listings, please include the important information in the body of the email and then attach flyers in PDF, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Publisher, RTF or JPG format. We will attempt to get all listings up within a week. If you have an emergency and need faster posting, please put "Urgent" in the subject.
Help Grow a Forest
The USDA Forest Service had a Penny Pines program where you can help the reforestation of Southern California forests. For about $68 you can sponsor an acre of forest. Lion IPDG Dick Kane had approved this as a District activity. See the attached flyer for more information.
If you have an event you'd like to put on our calendar, use the link at the bottom of every page on the site. If you wish to post a flyer along with the announcement, include the content of the flyer in Microsoft Word, Adobe PDF or JPG format and sent it as an attachment to email@example.com
