World Diabetes Day 2013
Join Lions from around the world for a webinar on May 22, from 7 to 8 AM, to prepare for World Diabetes Day. World Diabetes Day (WDD), led by the International Diabetes Federation (IDF), is celebrated every year on November 14 to engage millions of people in diabetes awareness and advocacy. This webinar is for Diabetes, Sight and Lions Services for Children chairpersons and other interested Lions who want to get involved with WDD projects. The webinar will highlight an extensive range of activities, as well as resources for planning a diabetes project. IDF presenters will discuss the growing diabetes epidemic and ways you can impact your community. Get ready for World Diabetes Day ... and keep diabetes firmly in the public spotlight.
Space is limited. Reserve your seat NOW.
District Convention Notes
Several items came up in the Facebook session at the Convention. To make things clear, Lions Jessica Scott and Toby Scott have put together two files that discuss (1) creating a locked-down Facebook account and (2) setting up a Lions Club Facebook page. Also, Lion Toby has set up a section on the Lions Links page (see menu on left) for club Facebook sites. If your club has a Facebook page that isn't listed, please use the "Announcement and Information Form" link at the bottom of every page on this site to let him know where it is. Check to make sure your club's website and Facebook pages are listed correctly.
It's that time of year again. Time to start planning the District Roster. Individuals, companies and Lions Clubs are encouraged to advertise it the Roster. Here's the form.
Lions Clubs International Newswire
Be sure to read Lions Clubs International Newswire, which comes out monthly. The September issue is out and leads off with a Lions "Champions of Change" event at the White House on October 2, but there's a lot more information.
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 Webmaster Toby Scott.
