We are off and running, full speed, towards a new year of service. 

We were very happy to welcome District Governor Jacqueline Williams to our October 25, 2016 General Membership meeting.  A good time was had by all.

We are now preparing for our annual Thanksgiving Community Outreach Service Project.  Lion Geraldine Howell-Scott is the Chairperson.  We are still collecting monetary donations for this worthy cause.  Please contact Lion Scott ( for more information. 

PLEASE NOTE:  The meeting for this service project will be held on MONDAY, November 21, 2016.  We will make our annual donation to Neighbors Together Food Pantry. 

Our annual Christmas Party / Membership Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, December 13, 2016.

Make plans to attend the Robert F. Kennedy Restoration Children’s Party in December.  The date will be announced.  Mid-Bedford Heights Lions has been a supporter of this event every year.  We will make a donation of Children’s Books in support of Lions International Reading Action Program.

District 20-K1's Mid-Winter Convention is scheduled for Saturday, February 18, 2017 at the Immaculate Conception Center, Douglaston, New York.  PDG Narcissus Frett-Moses is the Chairperson of the Memorial.

The New York State & Bermuda Lions Convention will be held on May 5-7, 2017 in Lake Placid, New York.  It is expected that 1st Vice District Governor (VDG) Charles McBride will be nominated for the position of District Governor.  2nd VDG Audrey Doorn is expected to be nominated for the position of 1st VDG.  There is no word as to who will be running for 2nd VDG.

We are organizing our annual “Pre-Mother’s Day, A Celebration in Pink and White” to be held on Saturday, May 13, 2017 at Astoria Manor.  Further details will be posted soon.  It’s never too late to start planning to attend and support.  Lion Gail Tull is this year’s Chairperson.  All profits raised from this event will be donated to the various community, state, and international charities.  The event will be sponsored by the Mid-Bedford Heights Lions Foundation (a 501c3 non profit organization).  All donations are tax deductible.

Lions International Centennial Convention will be held in Chicago, Illinois from June 30 – July 4, 2017.  Are you coming?  Don't wait until the last minute to register and secure accomodations.

That’s just a small sample of what’s ahead.  Come back and visit our photo gallery and calendar often.

Yours in Lionism,
Lion Betty Pitchford
