DEAR LIONS OF DISTRICT 35N - 3/15/20

We are faced with the CORONA VIRUS disrupting our lives and creating fear worldwide! Please take the necessary protections of handwashing, crowd avoidance, hand sanitizer, etc to protect yourselves. Check on your friends, neighbors and other Lions to be sure they are ok. Do not panic, use reason, altruism, listen carefully to the experts. Kindness now, more than ever, is needed.


This has resulted in most activities suspended in our communities and the Lions community. All club and district service projects, anniversaries, an open house at the Eye Bank and fundraisers, health fairs, except for the QUEST CANDY, for March have been suspended until a future date can be determined. Glucose certification and

recertification on 3/30/20 at the BOCA RATON CLUBHOUSE have been suspended to a date to be determined.

Dear Lions of District 35 N:

As you are aware, Tennessee was hit by an EF 4 Tornado recently.I 've spoken with the Governor, Leila Gibson and LCIF have given them $ 10,000 for immediate use. Her town was a direct hit and now Fema, Tima and Red Cross are there accessing and helping the residents. The grant is providing medicines, glasses, rent, food, etc., as many have been displaced from their homes. But the needs are greater, as many did not have home insurance!


Locals are opening their homes as well as, local hotels/ motels are dropping rates to help, but we know that won't go on for long. They have received donations of food clothing etc. from Lions in and out of state. So, what the Governor needs to help the victims is cash for housing assistance for those uninsured, until Fema etc handles the applications. Folks need interim housing during this crisis.


If you would like to help District I2 O, DG Leila Gibson. Please send a donation, whatever you can, too:

Corona Virus Facts:

This virus is spread in large droplets by coughing and sneezing. This means that the air will not infect you! BUT all the surfaces where these droplets land are infectious for about a week on average - everything that is associated with infected people will be contaminated and potentially infectious. The virus is on surfaces and you will not be infected unless your unprotected face is directly coughed or sneezed upon. This virus only has cell receptors for lung cells (it only infects your lungs) The only way for the virus to infect you is through your nose or mouth via your hands or an infected cough or sneeze onto or into your nose or mouth.

From February 24 through March 1, 2020, come meet your fellow Lions in             Andalucía, Spain, and compete in a tournament that benefits the Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF). Andalucía is a paradise for golf lovers with over 100 golf courses and exceptional climate, sun and warm weather all year round. The Barceló             Montecastillo Golf & Sports Resort is just next to Jerez de la Frontera, surrounded by great golf courses and next to one for the most beautiful historical cities of Spain. It is also very close to Seville.

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.
