Email Marketing by VerticalResponse

If you're already getting the newsletter by e-mail, you don't have to sign up. But if you don't know whether you're on the e-distribution list, please sign up again. I'd rather have you twice than not at all, and you'll still get only one newsletter.

The Lions year runs from July 1st to June 30th, so this site changes drastically during the early summer as we update officers and committee chairs. We make other changes regularly throughout the year, so please come back and visit us from time to time.

Important note: If you are a Lion, Lioness or Leo in District 20-Y2, this is your web site and I welcome your participation in its development. What I especially want from you are flyers about upcoming club functions, and articles and photos about your community service programs. If you have any comments, suggestions or criticisms about this web site, please send them to me by clicking here.
