Message from DG Dave Ebsworth

Good morning Fellow Lions & family

Annie and Dave Ebsworth in Montreal
Annie and Dave Ebsworth in Montreal

Today we start a new Lionís year, and I hope you will join me in thanking Immediate Past District Governor Brian and Lion Lesley for all they did for the District and hope they enjoyed their year. I know that Covid unfortunately is still with us and hopefully it will start to disappear even more as this year goes on. Our new International President Lion Brian Sheehan and his lovely wife Lion Lori are full of energy and his strap line is "Together we can" and I am sure that the lions of our District 105sc will give it 100% this year. Along the way we must have lots of fun and enjoy the road ahead. Annie and I have attended the classroom lessons and the plenary sessions and there were so many good ideaís shared. I am pleased to announce that Campaign 100 reached £270m ($324m), which was another success and the most that Lions have raised so far in a single campaign.

What I would like to see this year is clubs starting to visit one another, not just within their own Zone but cross over into other Zones and work together in partnership so that we can achieve the goals we set for the individual projects. Therefore you need to record these visits because at Convention 2023 there will be a trophy awarded for the club with the most visits. We are reviewing all of the competitions and hopefully by the end of July they will be listed on the website. I can tell you now that the District team is there to support you, attend and help with events, be it a membership drive, duck racing or any event, but please make early contact so it can be put in the diary.

Young Ambassador, in my eyes is an important competition and I have told Jersey they will have some young Lions to stand against their candidate this year so please lets get out there and find these young people, letís make this yearís competition one to remember, let's give Yorkie a headache with the numbers of candidates.

Please let's get all of our Club and District events into the diary so this will help members when they are planning events and Charters so they donít clash.

My strap line for this year is "Service with Enthusiasm and Pride", so letís make 2022-2023 a year to remember for the right reasons, let's get out there and serve our communities, let's make service count, and let us put Lions on the map.

Thank you for your support

Dave & Annie
