View our online version or mobile version here.It is truly an honor to serve as your new international president of Lions Clubs International. With my 40 years of service as a Lion, I know that we are much more than volunteers. We're an international family working together to strengthen our communities and the clubs we love.Being a Lion has meant so much to me, but I wouldn't be in the position to serve this great association if someone hadn't asked me to become a Lion.I was just a 21-year-old starting a career when a local businessman invited me to lunch. He didn't tell me where we were going, but he took me to a lunch hosted by my local Lions club. It was such a great experience, and the club invited me back to the next meeting...and the meeting after that. And before long, I was a Lion.As Lions, it's our mission to serve, but it's also our duty to ask new members to join our clubs. I hope you will join me in strengthening our membership and our service throughout the year. Together, we can strengthen the pride!Together in service,Joe PrestonAsk One!Just imagine if every one of our 1.35 million Lions asked one person to join their club. Imagine the huge impact it would have on membership growth and the amount of service we can provide.It starts by inviting one friend, one neighbor or one family member to join. Give them the opportunity to be a Lion, and give your club the opportunity to grow.
