                                       HAMMONTON LIONS CLUB

Fellow Lions:           

This year, International President Bob Corlew’s theme is ” New Mountains to Climb.”   He hails from the great state of Tennessee - the Volunteer State which I think is very apropos considering that Lions International is the largest service organization in the world.  Chancellor Corlew recalls that "As a young boy in Tennessee, I grew up instilled with the bonds of community—a rich tradition of neighbor helping neighbor, and friends and strangers coming together for the good of our community."  When I read that quote I couldn't help but think about the town of Hammonton and the Hammonton Lions Club.

The 2016-2017 year has already been filled with challenges so to quote Chancellor Corlew, "As our world continues to change, each of us faces new challenges—challenges that represent opportunities for Lions as we work to make the world a better place.  Lions must continue to climb upward, finding new ways to serve. Every mountain represents a new opportunity for Lions, and scaling each mountain provides each of us a chance to make the world better for another person.”

Our Lions centennial is already underway as Lions throughout the world begin celebrating 100 years of community service.  As Hammonton Lions, we need to honor our past, support our present and plan to insure our future.  This year, our club will continue to be involved in projects that will complete our commitment to our town’s sesquicentennial celebration.  Plus, we have a year filled with meetings, events and opportunities for fellowship that I hope will continue to make you proud to be a Hammonton Lion.  I look forward to sharing with all of you that deep sense of satisfaction you receive when you participate in an event that you know will make a difference not only in our community but throughout the world.   

To date, we have a had another Great Lions Year.  We are always looking for new members who are willing to contribute to their community and have an interest  in taking on leadership roles within our organizations. So, fellow Lions, please bring out someone new to one of our 2017 meeting!

Yours in Lionism,

King Lion Lisa
