The New Year Brings Exciting Changes
Fellow Lions, First I want to thank your Council of Governors for the opportunity for me to serve as Council Chair.  I consider that a great honor and I appreciate their confidence in me for this honor.  Second, as all councils, we have many challenges ahead of us.  It is the hope of this council to meet those challenges with dignity and wisdom. 

What Happens Next in the Process To Legalize Charitable Raffles?

Constitutional Amendment S.239 places the issue before the voters on the November 4, 2014 ballot. The change to the Constitution must be approved by voters and ratified by the General Assembly before nonprofit organizations can legally operate a raffle for charitable purposes and the law allowing charitable raffles goes into effect.

IRS Tax Filing Reminder
