MD-35 Fall Council of Governors Conference

Chateau ElanThe Multiple District 35 Council of Governors is proud to announce the 2014-2015 MD-35 Fall Conference to be held at Chateau Elan in Sebring, Fl. Come to Sebring, Florida the weekend of November 6th thru the 9th for fun, fellowship and some new and exciting seminars. Make Chateau Elan your home away from home.

Lions are not one-dimensional and neither is International Director William McKinney. Fresh off a GLT-GMT Summit in Oak Brook, ID McKinney is sure to have some thoughts on how we can best use IP Joe Prestons Strengthen The Pride Theme and Ask 1 Membership Challenge to our advantage.

Official Lions Club Logo

BrandingWhen searching Google for the Lions Clubs Logo, you will find 2 type of results, the multi-colored and the bi-colored designs. In many cases people will just use the type of logo they like the most.

Since the 2008 Lions International Convention in Bangkok there is only one official type of Lions Clubs logo! the bi-colored styled logo. So check your website, social media platforms and printed materials and replace your old Lions Club logos with the new ones. The Official Lions Club logo and all legal variations can be found at:

ASK One!

Ask One!Imagine if every one of the 5700 plus Lions in MD-35 asked one person to join their club. Imagine the huge impact that would have on membership growth and the amount of service we can perform right here at home.

It starts by inviting your friend, neighbor or co-worker to your club. Get them involved and let them see the benefits of being a Lion first-hand. What we accomplish today and what we accomplish in the future depends on building and strengthening our membership. Let's start the year right!

Strengthen The Pride

Strengthen The PrideIncoming President Joe Preston's International theme is "Strengthen the pride".

We can “Strengthen the Pride” by bringing the full Lion’s family, closer together, working in a spirit of cooperation and understanding, with each Lion member doing their share.

We will “Strengthen the Pride” through our many meaningful accomplishments. This is the platform for not only success this year, but through our centennial and well into the next hundred years.

Centennial Service Challenge

100 Years a LionFor nearly 100 years, Lions have served their communities with dedication and contributed to the development and well-being of millions of people around the world. As we look toward our centennial celebration in 2017, Lions are encouraged to help reach the Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 100 million people by December 2017 through participation in the Global Service Action Campaigns.

You can help spread the word! Encourage your Lions club officers to report service activities through MyLCI, the online membership and activity reporting system. Lions clubs that participate and report activities through My LCI's online service activity report will be awarded a special banner patch in recognition of their contribution to service.
