Governor Otter declares January 13th "Idaho Lions Day"

Governor Otter has issued a proclamation declaring January 13th (the birth date of founder Melvin Jones) Idaho Lions Day!  Let everyone know you are proud to be a Lion-wear your vest, logo shirt, or pin and spend some time talking to your friends and co-workers about Lions Club and why you are a member!

The Proclamation reads:

Whereas, Lions Clubs International was founded by Melvin Jones in 1917 and now is the largest, most diverse community humanitarian service organization in the world; and

Whereas, Lions Clubs International has over 1.3 million members worldwide and over 3000 members in Idaho; and

Whereas, Idaho Lions Clubs determine the needs of the community by working with youth, seniors, Veterans, and the Sight and Hearing Foundation to create better neighborhoods; and

Whereas, Idaho Lions Club members make a difference by working with families as a charitable family-based organization; and

Whereas, Melvin Jones's birthday is January 13;

Now, Therefore, I, C. "Butch" Otter, Governor of the State of Idaho, do hereby proclaim that January 13, 2010, be IDAHO LIONS DAY.
