Greetings Fellow Lions Officers, 

As we begin our new Lions year, I want to let you know that I will again be the Zone A Desert Chair. Our first Zone meeting will be in October (date pending). If anyone has a suggestion on a meeting place, please let me know. 

I would like to propose a zone project. Last year, the Acton Lions participated in the Lancaster Church Health Expo at the Antelope Valley Adventist School. We were contacted again to participate. This is would be a wonderful opportunity to do a zone project. We could do vision screenings with the Spot Vision Screener. The Health Expo is scheduled for Sunday, September 10, 11:00 am - 4pm. Let me know if any clubs are interested in joining the Acton Lions Club for this project. 

Just a reminder, the Valley Region will be next week-end, July 14 and 15 at the Air-Tel Hotel in Van Nuys. Our District Installation will take place on Saturday evening on the 15th. Information was sent out to the clubs, however, let me know if you need any additional information. 

Please forward this information to any new officers I may have unintentionally overlooked. 
Stay Cool during these hot days and hopefully will see you soon. 

Yours In Lionism 
Sincerely, 
Lion Virginia Wedding 
Acton Lions Club

Lions Youth Exchange Program 


The Lions Youth Exchange Program is one of Lions’ International's biggest peace programs. In order to make our goal a reality, we must find students to go on this program. We also need host families who are willing to take these students during the summer for a two week period. Without your help in promoting this program, our dream may never occur. The program is open to anyone between the ages of 15 ½ to 21 years old. It is a natural progression for all students participating in our student speaker contests and our Leos to go onto the Lions ’Youth Exchange program. The more Lions programs we can keep our children involved in, the greater our chances of them becoming Lions themselves. 

As for our Peace Poster contestants, although they are a little young for this program now, all Peace Poster committee people should relate the Youth Exchange Program to them. This is so they can “save their pennies and get excited about participating in this program. 

Please download and make as many copies as possible of the attached Youth Exchange Flyer to give out to all students you meet. 
Please also go onto our website at MD4Lions.orgclick on "Web Links for Lions", scroll down, and click on “Youth Exchange Foundation” for a better understanding of this program. 

Thank you Lion Eileen 
Youth Exchange Committee

Guidelines 

  
If, at dissolution, any of the remaining funds are going to a charitable non-profit 501©(4) organization (such as LCIF, LPCCI, Lions in Sight etc.) then the club is required to file a Form RRF-1 (http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/charities/charitable/rrf1_form.pdf)with the Registry of Charitable Trusts, a division of the Attorney General’s office. If the club hasn’t registered yet, they would need to file a form CT-1(http://oag.ca.gov/sites/all/files/agweb/pdfs/charities/charitable/ct1-form.pdf). 

 This is an annual filing with the Registry of Charitable Trusts and the RRF-1 would be filed along with a copy of the club’s Form 990. For some clubs who do not file the 990 or 990-EZ because their total receipts are less than $50,000, they would simply file the RRF-1 alone with no attachments. There is also a fee to go with this based on the gross receipts of the club though it is not significant and it is based on the level of gross receipts that are reported on the Form 990.
