Charity Raffles Nearing the Final Vote

In the spring of 2013, the non-profit sector worked so hard to help get legislation passed to make charitable raffles legal.

 

We now ask your help with the next to last hurdle.  On November 4th the necessary constitutional amendment will go before the voters.

 

The attached flyer provided by the South Carolina Association of Non-profit Organizations is designed for you to share with your club, volunteers, friends and others to help them understand why YES is the way to vote. 

 

Please save the flyer and forward to everyone who can help us succeed on November 4th.

Hats Off To District

32B Lions

District 32-B Article

"Strengthen The Pride" is our international president's theme.  I can say that my pride has been strengthened by visits to the clubs in 32B.  I have really enjoyed the hospitality shown to me and to see the enthusiasm club members demonstrate talking about their projects and fundraisers.  As I have previously stated, it comes down to, "what can the district do for the clubs" and not "what the clubs can do for the district".

Marlboro County Lions in Action

When Ashley Johnson from the Marlboro County Lions Club contacted Jennifer Hyduke at the Marlboro County Department of Social Services in July and inquired if any of the DSS Clients are in need of air-circulating fans, Jennifer's first thought was the elderly and the youngest clients (our most vulnerable).  She contacted Pat Broughton, Adult Protective Services, and other caseworkers at DSS to compile a list of those with the most need.

District 32-D Articles

I believe many of you have heard the above quote, as we have shared International President Joe Preston's theme song at each club we have visited so far.  It pertains to "Growing Our numbers and Strengthening the Pride"!  We will not be able to do either or both until Lions can overcome their FEAR of rejection, when asking someone to join our clubs.  Yet, unless we "Ask" and continue to "Ask", we will never know if those around us are interested or even know who we are and what we do in our communities. Read Complete Article
