Lions Club to Form Deer Creek Chapter

Filed under: Community,Highlighted Stories |
District 3-H of the Lions of Oklahoma are in the process of forming a new Lions Club in the Deer Creek community.
We invite you and other community-minded individuals to join us on Tuesday, April 24th, at 7 PM.  We will be meeting at the Deer Creek Middle School Cafeteria, 21175 N. MacArthur.  The meeting will last one hour.
 
The meeting will start with a time of networking, sharing of Business Cards and time for each individual to introduce themselves, tell about their business or profession and share a few things about themselves.  This will include the Lions present.  This will be followed by  a brief history of Lions Clubs International, an overview of Lions activities and your membership benefits in a Lions Club.
We will be asking those individuals present to suggest some types of service projects they would like the new club to support.
 
Our second meeting will be Tuesday, May 8th, 7 PM.  Again it will be at the Middle School Cafeteria.  We expect to elect a President, Secretary, Treasurer and a Membership Chairperson.  Immediately after the election, the newly elected President will assume the gavel and take over the club.  At that time the club will decide such things at meeting location, date and time.
 
If you cannot attend the first meeting on April 24th, and would like to join or obtain additional information about the new club, please contact Lion Robert McMasters, 826-5548 or reandlkmcmasters@sbcglobal.net.
 
If you are interested in discovering many things which Lions are involved with, you can to the the Lions International Website: www.lionsclubs.org or the Lions of Oklahoma Website: www.oklahomalions.org.  While on the Lions of Oklahoma Website, you can access the District 3-H portion and discover what other clubs are in the District.
 
Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization.  We have more than 1.35 million members in more than 45,000 clubs in 205 countries around the world.
 
Lions Clubs are autonomous.  Each club may choose projects and activities that fit the lifestyle and geographic area.
 
Lions have a dynamic history.  Founded in 1917, we are best known for helping the blind and visually impaired. But we also volunteer for many different kinds of community projects—including caring for the environment, feeding the hungry and aiding seniors and the disabled.
 
I thank you for your assistance in getting out the word about our forming a new club in the Deer Creek area.
 
Robert McMasters
District Governor Elect
