THOUGHTS FROM DISTRICT GOVERNOR DEB
Lions, Lionesses, and Leos,
By the time you read this the region rallies will be history. I
would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to all the Region and Zone chairpersons that worked so hard to make
these events successful and fun for everyone. Many deserving
Lions received recognition for their hard work and we all certainly enjoyed much good food and fellowship during the rallies.
UPCOMING EVENTS
Nov 1st Oyster,
Shrimp, Fish & Ham
As we head into November, we all look forward to the coming
of Thanksgiving. For me this is a time of counting my blessings and for giving to those that are in need. Were it not for
the generosity of our Lions, Lionesses, and Leos many would
go hungry at this time of the year. If you are looking for
something meaningful to do in the month of November, consider holding a food drive or supporting your local food bank.
Maybe volunteering at a community Thanksgiving dinner
would be something your club is interested in doing. Whatever you choose it will make a difference in the life of someone less fortunate than yourself and what a great feeling it is
to put a little sunshine into someone’s life.

Message from your VDG-Kathy Ridder
November GREETINGS LIONS, LIONESS & LEOS!!
The Rally’s are history, congratulations to all deserving Lions who have been given awards. The next event on the
agenda is the Nov. 16 Cabinet Meeting. All Lions are welcome at any or all Cabinet Meetings; I’d love to see you there.
At the time that I wrote this I was having a “chill out” Sunday, reading, watching TV, dozing! In between naps I found a
movie, “Battleship” which had the U.S. Navy vs. Aliens in an
all out war in of all places Hawaii. I hope that isn’t a sign of
things to come when I head there for the International Convention. Next I watched “Prospectors”, finding fabulous gems
in the hills of Colorado. As I was surfing the channels I found “Bulls on the Beach”,
competition bull riding leading up to the PBR Finals in Las Vegas which happens in
late October. Of course I ended the day with watching football. Peyton Manning tied
Brett Favre’s record of touchdown passes of 509!!
Now you know some of my interests, perhaps you have some of the same. In relationship to our Lions connection, are we all on the same page in serving those less
fortunate while putting effort into increasing our numbers? Each month I notice on the
MMR’s that clubs lose a member here, lose 2 there. This in not a good thing.
District 14D has been known as one of the best in the State & when I say District,
I’m not talking about the Cabinet. We are all the District, Lancaster & Lebanon Counties, working together for a common goal, to serve & to interest others to help in the
effort. The Region & Zone Chairpersons are there to serve the Clubs of the District
as are the many Committee Chairpersons who are eager to share their knowledge on
their particular expertise. I look at the Cabinet as something to put in a tool box, using them to build a better Club, using them to answer questions, help solve a problem. Oftentimes someone viewing something from the outside can see a different
slant on things. As Clubs are there to serve their communities the Cabinet is there to
serve the Clubs on the journey we have all made a commitment to travel, together!
The May State Convention will be here in a flash. Notices will soon be going out
Statewide. Plan to register; a whopping cost of $12.50 gets you into seminars, Hospitality Night, the State Band concert, ya gotta hear them!! The Convention Display has
been circulating at all the Rally’s & other events. Get to know what is happening &
get involved!
I’m wishing all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving with family & friends. Remember,
there is always, always something to be thankful for. I’m thankful for the U.S. Navy;
they sure wiped up the floor with those Aliens!!
Yours in Lionism,
1st VDG Kathy Ridder
“Strengthen the Pride”
Notes and Hints from your Global Leadership Team
The Club Excellence Process (CEP).
Has your Club considered the Club Excellence Process? Building s successful Lions or
Lioness Club is a process, and it begins with the Club Excellence Process. CEP is a fun,
interactive workshop that brings members together to talk about what your club is today
and what it will be tomorrow. It gives your club the tools to energize your service, enhance
member satisfaction and set goals to keep your club on track for continued growth.
We have 8 clubs in our District that have completed the CEP process and all are becoming
better clubs. We also have 4 clubs that are going though the process at the time of this
message. CEP gives your club to opportunity to celebrate your club’s accomplishments
and discuss what it can accomplish in the future. It will also identify unmet community
needs.
Whether your clubs feels it needs assistance to grow or meet the needs of your community
or your club feels it is a good club and would like to become either a better club or an excellent club, the Club Excellence Process would be a great benefit to assure successes in
the future.
For more information contact me at 717-789-9605 or [email protected] or our
Global Membership Chairperson, Lion Mike Guinivan at 717-426-3161 or [email protected]
On behalf of your Global Leadership Team, we thank you for all that you are doing so that
we are successful in serving those less fortunate than ourselves. For more information or
a club program from one of our Team Members contact either 2nd VDG Bob Weaver, PDG
Tom Ridder, RC Gene Hilton or myself.

Greeting Fellow Lions: Lionesses & Leos
As you know, October was busy with 6 region rallies and all our fall Lion’s activities. October
31st through November 2nd I’ll be joining fellow Lions at a gathering in Grantville for one of
the annual State Council Meetings. This will be my 2nd State gathering, and I’m amazed and
encouraged by the dedication and enthusiasm I have seen, there is so much to learn about
the process of continuing the goals of Lionism.
As I have told you in the past, our District 14D Convention will be a month earlier, March 2728, 2015. This earlier date will accommodate our District in being able to host the State
meeting in May at the Host Resort in Lancaster. As you know, “Presidents Honor Night “will
be March 27th 6pm at Yoder’s Buffet in New Holland, see you there!
Remember, each Lion’s Club will be asked to donate a theme basket for each event.
Ps: Don’t forget to sign up early for the Amish Experience at the Convention in May – the first
200 members who sign up will receive the limited addition pin.
Happy Thanksgiving

Come to District 14D to enjoy a wide variety of attractions, including Dutch Wonderland,
which is across the street from the hotel, as well as the American Music Theater and shopping outlets

And be sure to take in some local history and scenery. A short drive west will take you into
the city of Lancaster, where you can shop at Central Market, take a walking tour, or visit Wheatland,
the home of the only US President from Pennsylvania. In the other direction, a short drive will take
you through scenic farmland, with roadside stands offering produce and handmade Amish products.
Join your fellow Lions, Lionesses, and LEOs for fun, fellowship, and learning more about Lions

The internationally-acclaimed comedy basketball team
THE HARLEM AMBASSADORS
are coming to LANCASTER & LEBANON COUNTY!
You can be part of this event!
WARWICK HIGH SCHOOL
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 25, 2015 6:30PM
DISTRICT 14-D LEO’S will be hosting the Harlem Ambassadors for a special comedy
basketball event. This is an event families can enjoy together... laughter, comedy, slam
dunks, high-flying hoops... all for a good cause. And you can be part of it!
All funds raised from this event will go to VisionCorps and Lebanon Sight Committee.
"As I looked out at our huge
crowd, I saw big smiles and
lots of laughing by young
and old alike. Whole families
were having such a great
time together; they didn't
want the game to end."
Offering a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball featuring high-flying slam dunks,
dazzling ball-handling tricks and hilarious comedy routines, the Harlem Ambassadors are
a team of talented male and female basketball players that are drug-free, collegeeducated and positive in appearance. They are committed to giving their audience
quality family entertainment and serving as positive role models for kids.
A team of local celebrities -- men and women from our community -- will play against the
Harlem Ambassadors and be part of the comedy. Everyone will meet the Ambassadors
after the game during a complimentary autograph session.
Lions are a service organization and our motto is “We serve”. We have been called to be
“Knights of the Blind” from Helen Keller and we do that by providing support financially
and volunteering with blind/vision impaired persons as well as our community.
We are proud to announce that our Leos (middle & high school students) also serve in
the same capacity and are overseeing this event. This event will specifically impact this
age group and they are our future.
"The standing-room-only
crowd not only saw some
of the greatest basketball
in America, they also were
witness to some of the
funniest comedy routines
around . . . . The final score?
The Harlem Ambassadors
won . . . over the citizens
of Franklin County and
impacted a lot of lives,
young and old alike. Those
of us who came and saw
and played and danced and
laughed 'til we cried, may
never be the same again.
And that's a good thing."
Bob Salmon
The Herald Chronicle
“We are proud to provide quality entertainment and lasting memories for audiences of
all ages,” said Dale Moss, Harlem Ambassadors president. “It’s rewarding to give back,
especially when the funds generated help build a house for Habitat for Humanity or buy
computers for the school library. Please consider helping your community by becoming a
sponsor of this event.”
Yes! I would like to sponsor this event.
