MESU Program - The Mobile Eye Screening Unit is being kept busy on most Saturdays. In fact, there is only 1 Saturday open between now and the District Convention. This means that your Club is going to be disappointed if you wanted a Saturday and are not already on the schedule. The lesson here is that you must plan ahead and schedule long range. Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are the most popular days so take this into account in your planning. It is important that we keep this valuable District resource busy serving our communities. Contact Lion Chris and he will work with you to find a date and a location. Each Club should host at least one visit each year !!
Foundation Election - Four slots on the Foundation Board of Directors will be filled at the District election which will be held at the Annual Convention in early May. If you or a member of your Club wishes to be considered for one of these important positions, the Foundation must receive a Club Resolution not later than March 26, 2001. The Foundation will review all candidates and submit names to the District Governor on April 1, 2001.
