Our Meeting this Friday was excellent again, we had a terrific turn out with
several guests.  People were happy visiting with each other and enjoying
the humor that filled the air.  
The speaker that we had Friday was excellent as she talked about  El Paso
Children’s Hospital and the University Medical Center.  Several of our
members became very interested asking questions with enthusiasm.  This
clearly demonstrated that our members want to keep up with the changes
in El Paso and are interested in services provided to others.  
I was fortunate enough to attend the Lions’ District Meeting in Pecos, TX
this last Saturday.  The event was well attended and the interaction
between everyone was not just positive, but energetic.  I had missed the
morning training, but when I asked others, they seemed to have a grasp of
what was discussed and were already generating ideas to put in place.  
This included membership and using Lion programs online.  Also, with this
being no surprise to me, when it was my turn to present (Peace Poster
Contest) I promised to be much shorter than last time and received a
generous applause.  
The reason I bring up the District Meeting is that if you did not have the
chance to attend you may want to check the calendar for future district
events, it was fun and there is always something to learn that can
sometimes make things easier and more successful.
As a Lion Community we can continue to make a positive impact on those
that we serve as it has been for over 96 years.

It is Great to be a Downtown Lion!!!
