Messages from District Governor Josephine Louie

Thank you!


Thank You for Your Service  

First, I would like to give you my sincerest thanks for the opportunity you have given me to lead you as DG this past year. As you all know, the achievement of our goals and our success would not be possible without the unending support from Lions such as yourselves. The leadership I have found among my fellow Lions has been a unique combination of professional training and personal support which is the essence of our community service organization.

District 4-L1’s CHLA Event Thank you


My Fellow Lions, Clubs & Supporters,  
I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all who have made District 4-L1’s CHLA event, "A Child's Pathway to Light", an overwhelming success. Through so many of your generous support, we were able to not only, meet our fundraising goal of $25,000 but in fact, were able to exceed our expectations. We had an impressive net proceed totaling $27,566.79 to benefit The Vision Center at Children's Hospital Los Angeles.  
In light of this successful campaign, CHLA acknowledge their appreciation and a thank you letter to all Lions of District 4L1 is attached for your review.  
Thank you all again for supporting our mission with the Lions Club to help prevent blindness in children in the U.S. and around the globe.

Fellow District Lions,  

There is a fascinating article about how Lions and technology have managed to save and restore sight. I encourage you to please take a few minutes to click on this link http://mydigimag.rrd.com/publication/?i=170977# {"page":4,"issue_id":170977} It will take you to the Sept 2013 issue of Lions Magazine and insert Page 28 in the top box. The article goes up to page 34.  

I would like all of the District 4-L1 Lions to enjoy reading about this wonderful (ROP) project. When you read it, you will see why this is a district endorsed project for the year of 2013-14. Please, consider adding it to your club projects and work with your club Lions as team project. To the best of my knowledge, according to Valley Region Chair Stephen Joe, I am happy to learn that Dr. Thomas Lee has agreed to once again speak at the Valley Meeting in January about his work at the Children’s Hospital

Dear Fellow Lions and Friends, 


As I take the helm as the 2013-2014 District Governor of District 4-L1, I think about the many ways that we can create a better world though our SERVICE. We as Lions have the same dreams, hopes, aspirations, and even the same challenges. I believe that if we truly understand and feel that the needs of others are the same as our own, we begin to understand how important our service is. 

Many challenges lie ahead of us, but these challenges will not stop us from making our "DREAM" come true. It is a measurement of our success in everything we plan to do. I am taking on the responsibility of a district governor with a renewed sense of optimism toward positive trends. I believe that through teamwork, respect, enthusiasm and dedication, we will "Follow the Dream" uphold the Lions motto "We Serve". 

This special occasion is. distinguished by the fact that every member in district 4-L1 has worked to bring together on this day; a desire to serve those in need by accomplishing the humanitarian goals of our organization. 

Together, we will make a commitment to accept the new social challenges in the community; live in the present; focus on the future; and in the process, foster enthusiasm and energy. 

Let us come together to make things happen and work as a team to realize our "DREAM" of a bright and successful future. 

I wish to thank all the cabinet officers, members, sponsors, supporters for their participation, time and effort to make this an “AFFAIR TO REMEMBER". 

In Lionism, 

District Governor Josephine Louie
