DG Gary Greene – District Governor’s Message


Have you ever wanted to belong to something so special that it’s memorable from the very beginning? Well, I am promising you a year to remember with Lions in 2022-23.

It starts at the top. Take a moment to watch the “Outside The Box” video with International President Brian Sheehan: www.lionsclubs.org/en/lions-video-center. We’re coming out of the box this year on our far-reaching service projects. Together We Can. We’re coming out of the box on our ample fundraising projects. Together We Can. We’re coming out of the box on our outstanding membership growth. Together We Can.

This year we have challenges from our District 31-O International Family. PIP Sid and Judy Scruggs are challenging us as a district to recruit 50 new members age 40 and under.

Sound impossible? Not this year! Working together, we can reach and exceed this goal to such levels that it could only be accomplished by an energized district-wide membership. PID Harvey and Diane Whitley are challenging our clubs to undertake even more new service projects. We’ll watch your reports in MyLION and let you know how well you’re doing!

These efforts will succeed because of your dedication to the spirit of Lionism. We need positive and optimistic Lions who will look at our local communities and gladly tackle the needs of that community. Offer up those new service projects. You need more hands to implement? Recruit new Lions who say “together we can” do this.

I am privileged to serve. I am honored to serve with you. Together we can accomplish much!

Gary Greene | 31-O District Governor
