NEVADA LIONS CLUB
50 PROUD YEARS OF COMMUNITY SERVICE
Volume 1, Issue 12 Lions Newsletter July 1999
Our newly elected International President, James E. "Jim" Ervin asks all Lions to join him on a voyage into the new millenium aboard four ships:
Our newly elected District Governor, Herman Kopitzke, reported in his first newsletter: "President Jim says 'Let us as Lions, embrace the future with enthusiasm and imagination in membership, leadership, fellowship and partnership. While the word may vary in each language, the concept of voyaging together toward a common goal is universal. I am ready to board my "ship". I have a clear vision of our destination. It is a new century of service where Lions Clubs International will be seen as the leading light in a brightening sea.
SHARE MY VISION, BOARD OUR SHIP.'"
President Jim encourages "each one reach one'; his goal is to double the current size of our Lions Clubs International. His goal is our goal - we've had the honor of welcoming Wes Ebert and Bill Tipton, and Jan Whaley this past year, and inducting Charles Lloyd, Larry Myers, Jim Perkins and Angelo Stefani. There are many more fine, caring individiuals in our community. Let's ask them to join the world's largest service organization!
