(ZC Bob Orchard: NEWSLETTER EDITOR: Sheila Grant: DISTRICT 19-I LEADERSHIP THROUGH SERVICE EDITION #2, AUGUST, Message from 19-I s District Governor Mike Dukes What do we have planned for this year in the way of goals? They were developed by your leadership team for the Lions year. The GAT and CST were all asked for input and support in development. The goals were reviewed by our First Vice District Governor, District GLT coordinator and at the multiple district level they were reviewed by the MD coordinators and area leaders. We have goals in Leadership Development, Membership Development, Service Impact and LCIF Support to give thought and consideration on helping achieve them. They were developed allowing flexibility within Clubs and Zones, recognizing cumulative results will add up to successful accomplishment. Working together is the best way to have a successful outcome. Let s review starting with the Membership Development goal. One of the most important areas in your Clubs and throughout our organization this year, we are looking for a 2% net growth in our District. It s a small number when looking at the Zone level, and remember that it is growth after factoring in the loss of members. Retention is as equally important as growth and we must all work together to retain those members that have joined Lions by expressing their desire to serve. As a goal we would like each Club to develop a plan for the responsibilities of each new member s sponsor or assigned mentor. One of the fastest segments of growth in Lions is our women in Lions; we would like to move in the direction of gender equality. This is a goal of our new International President and your District team. If we do a good job in the area of membership then our potential for service will expand. Growth allows more accomplishments in service efforts; each new member on average touches the lives of 70 people per year and they provide opportunities for keeping leadership growth alive in our Clubs and throughout the Lions organization. We have set a goal in leadership to identify at least one member from each Zone to help move forward in their efforts to develop as a future leader in our organization. In addition we have set a goal to provide leadership Club officer training in each of our seven Zones for all officers to attend. In the area of service, we have asked that each Club either increase by 10% its donations in the area of Diabetes or add a project in this area, one of our new International focus areas. And finally to help support the Campaign 100 and LCI Forward opportunity we are asking that each Zone improve in donations to our LCIF foundation by 10% over last year efforts. There is much more to these goals that will be shared, but please start the conversation with your Club officers, Zone chairpersons and GAT coordinators. Remember goals are a plan and can be modified hopefully by exceeding and improving upon.

At 81, Ann Moffat of Victoria is still determinedly independent, even though her sight is failing. She is attending the Pacific Training Centre for the Blind in Victoria where she is learning braille, daily living skills and to travel independently as a blind person. The iphone will be a very useful tool in this process, allowing her to map her present location while walking and taking public transit, send and receive messages, identify objects including grocery items, find and read recipes and so on. Using a system of swipes and taps on the screen she can navigate the features of the iphone using the screen reader VoiceOver for audible output, and Siri to give it verbal commands. The Lions iphone Project for the Blind was created by Oriano Belusic, Don Jones and the late Gerald Lundgren of the Victoria Imperial Lions and adopted by 19-I-2 as Zone project on Nov. 25, 2012 with support from the then Zone Chair Georgia Medwedrich. The project, which to date has raised sponsorships totalling $27,455, quickly expanded beyond the Zone and has been supported by 17 Lions and Lioness Clubs including: the Burnaby Host Lions, Central Saanich Lions, Comox Valley Lions, Esquimalt Lions, Harbour Lites Lioness, Hub City Lions, Ladysmith Lions, Nanaimo Lions, New Westminster Lions, Saanich Lions, Sooke District Lioness, Sooke Harbourside Lions, Sooke Lions, Victoria Chinatown Lioness, Victoria Chinatown Lions, Victoria Imperial Lions, and the West Shore Lions.

It can be difficult to diagnose and treat. MG is known as the snowflake disease as symptoms and severity, as well as response to treatments vary from individual to individual. There are an estimated 30,000 Canadians who have the disease.
