Happy New Year!

It's not the Lions New Year, but a new year on the calendar, so it's still a good time to review...

Where are you with your goals for your Lions club?  What?  Forgot to make goals?  If you did forget, it's not too late; you still have 6 months left in your Lions year.  Let's call them resolutions...and I'll make a few for you...

1.  Resolve to get ___ new members by June 30th.  You fill in the blank with the number that is achievable, yet a bit of a stretch, for your club. 

2.  Invite ___ new people (preferably friends and acquaintances) to your meetings or projects.  If they don't know what you're doing, they probably won't join. (See #1)

3.  Network (that just means visit, nothing formal) with ___ other clubs.  The by-product here, is making new friends.  We can all use those.  The ulterior motive-you'll know who to call if you need some help on a project.

4.  Plan something for your club that is just for fun.  Purely for fun.  Not to raise money, not a new project, not to sit at another meeting.  Just get everyone together and go have some fun.  The bonds you make in friendship will strengthen and energize your club.  (Just don't be cliquey, include everyone.)

OK, there you go!  It's up to you to do the rest.
