Time is short. Signup now, grab the agenda and read the flyer.

Roster Is Online

The 2015-16 Roster is now available for download. No need to wait for paper (how outmoded) copies at the Cabinet Meeting in August. Just a quick download and you're ready to go. Download it here. It is a long download if you are on a slow connection.

With Great Sorrow

Terry Orton, with the Arroyo Grande Lions, has shared the following information:

Tom Bonds, a member of the Arroyo Grande Lions Club passed away recently. We will be having a Celebration of His Life on Sunday, July 12, at 3:00 p.m. at the Woman's Club, 211 Vernon Ave, AG. A BBQ dinner will be served in honor of our #1 BBQ Chef.

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 events@lions4a3.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.

Calendar Items

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 events@lions4a3.org
