"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."

Dear Fellow Lions,

Thank you, husband Lion Jerry, for asking me to join the Nevada Lions Club, and I sincerely thank all of you who voted to accept me into this club.

In the June 1999 Lion, our International President, Kajit Habanananda, wrote that we Lions have had a most successful year, taking the concept of harmony to heart and putting it into action. We have grown in membership internationally and locally. As of January 31, 1999, Lions Clubs International had 1,412,258 members in 44,155 clubs in 740 districts in 185 countries and geographical locations!

Here in Story County, we have said good-bye to a wonderful Christian man, Jim Johnson. He had been a Lion for seven years, and was always ready to help out with a smile on his face.

I have had the honor of inducting Angelo Stefani, Jim Perkins, Charles Lloyd, and Larry Myers into our club and welcoming transfers Jan Whaley and Wes Ebert.

Please accept my gratitude for all the help and encouragement I've had this year, and know that I look forward to working with this group of thoughtful, committed citizens, making this a better community and world.

Your president,

Special Appreciation to LION BOB HOBSON for his many years of hard work and complete dedication to the Nevada Lions Club!

Thanks yous!
