From The Editor

Lion Linda Gregory

Lions has been a little easier. No leading any more. It feels great. Although, I had some problems and didn't get my newsletter out, I was able to do a few things.
Our new officers were elected. Lion Linda Gregory is our new President. Linda has a real heart for service and I truly believe that she will do an outstanding job this coming year. She was my secretary the past 2 years and we worked well together.
She was always there when I needed help. She is a dear friend and a lovely woman. She has been and will continue to be a true asset to our club.

Lion Linda is fortunate to have her husband to be her secretary this coming year. Lion Jimmy Gregory has such a heart for service. He is also serving on the District Lions Leadership Team for Training over the next 3 years. He is a very good speaker and I am sure that his chairmanship of this Committee will  increase the status of our Lions District.

Lion Ray Braguglia
Lion Jimmy Gregory
Lion Ray Braguglia is our new Treasurer. He took over last year when our treasurer resigned. Lion Ray is also our Pediavision point person and is our Zone Pediavision Spokesperson. We all served at Patrick Henry Mall on August 6 & 7 to screen children with the Pediavision. It is such an awesome tool to use to make sure that children don't enter
school with vision problems. Our thanks go out to Lion Ray for his heart for service.  He seems to be there whenever there is anything needed, we are so fortunate to have him in our club. His wife, Lion Kay, helped with Pediavision in the Mall. I hope someone got some pictures. I lost the batter recharger to my camera. I find that if I take pictures on my cellphone, I tend to over fill the phone.
Lion Earl Arrowood 

Lion Earl Arrowood is our Membership Chairman this year.
He will be on the lookout for new members. We have decided that every member of the club is on the Membership Committee. We will all be on the lookout for new members. I am sure that we will be installing new members soon. Lion Earl doesn't take anything lightly. To be a Lion you must have a heart for service. Lion Earl has a big one. If you or someone you know would like to be a Lion, comment on this blog and we will give you information about a club in your area.

Lion Ralph Simmons
Lion Ralph Simmons will be serving as our Lion Tamer again this year. He does a very good job at making sure that we have all the Lions paraphenalia that we need for each meeting. He has the added duty of bringing the District 24-D Leo Trophy to the meetings. We appreciate him so much. He shows up for our projects whenever he is not working. We are so glad to have him on our team.

Lion Ray Duke
Lion Ray Duke is continuing in his position as Tail Twister. He has been having a good time with it. He is also our Club Parliamentarian. He was the District Parliamentarian for 10 years, but is not on the Cabinet this year. He is still serving as the State of Virginia Lions Parliamentarian and has served in that position for about 10 years also. He is very knowledgeable in Parliamentary Procedures and is a well-respected member of the Professional Registered Parliamentarians of the National Association of Parliamentarians. He is also the NAP State Secretary for this next two years.

Lion Scott Brawley
Lions Scott Brawley and Eddie Falkner are our Directors.
Lion Kay Braguglia is helping out with our projects and gave us a program on Food Safety. I cannot find pictures for Lions Kay and Eddie.

As for myself, Lion Barbara Duke, I am working on this blog and getting a newsletter set up. It feels great not to be in charge. Now if I can just get the newsletter done.
 We will be having our next Board Meeting at the Lions Medical Eye Bank at Norfolk Sentara. If you are interested in coming to see what Lions are  doing for others in this area, please leave a comment. If you are a Lion already, please subscribe to this blog for automatic updates.
