As we start the new year, I wanted to distribute the Goals for 2018-19 which were developed to guide the Club in the coming year. I actually covered these Goals briefly at the Installation Dinner meeting in June. As you’ll see, they are really not earth shattering in nature, but address our continuing support of our service projects; continue to increase membership and focus on member retention; list service committee/event leadership assignments; update the “Buddy System;” and conduct a member orientation/mentoring program for all our new members.
Also, I really appreciate Club members stepping up to fill the service committee/event Chair positions. This year to ensure all members have an opportunity to serve in a leadership position, I have created a Vice Chair position for most committees/events.
As a reminder, our next dinner meeting will be on Wednesday, September 12, at the Chester River Yacht and Country Club. Our guest dinner speaker will be Dr. Shanahan. Since he will be speaking on a health-related topic, we have designated this meeting as” health worker guest” night. So, if you have a friend or neighbor who is a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, or sports trainer and they are really interested in being a Lion and serving the community, please consider bringing them to the meeting.
