District Governor New Year’s Day Message
Good Day Leos and My Fellow Lions
Welcome to 2020 – welcome to a new beginning and all the wonderful opportunities that result - welcome the new year, full of things that never were.
For the last six months I have had the privilege to serve as your District Governor. The experience has been exciting and instructive in a large measure due to the support I have received from you all. Thank you for the warm reception and courtesies that have been extended to me. Your acts of kindness have sustained me on the journey.
In July 2019 in my inaugural address I shared with you my dream - that working together we would achieve the objectives of increasing membership strength and expanding and deepening our service impact.
As I have visited with Clubs and shared with Leos and Lions on a number of issues, I have learnt a lot and gained some new insights. In this regard, as I look back at 2019 and look ahead to 2020 I have done some retrospection and it is evident that achieving ‘our dream’ is an urgent priority if we are to be an increasingly attractive, and valued organisation.
I encourage you as together we embrace the wonderful possibilities that a new year brings to join me and to do your own reflection. What needs to stay the same? What needs to change? And then let us reenergized and aided by the magic of new beginnings tackle those issues that limit our potential and prevent us from being the best we can be.
I am excited by what we can achieve. I hope you are too!!!
Best wishes to you and your family for a wonderful and fulfilling New Year !!!
Yours in service
