District Governor Simon Yau’s Message

DGSIMONGood Day Lions!

Time flies when we are having fun! November has been a very eventful month for me as I visited over 30 clubs in our District!
I have logged many travel hours and met many new friends. I
took the ferry to visit Powell River Lions Club and celebrated
their 25th chartered anniversary, then I visited Egmont, Gibson, Pender Harbor and Sunshine Coast Lions Club after in a joint visitation. I was  overwhelmed by their enthusiasm and hospitality.
November is also Diabetes awareness month and a busy
month for Clubs in our district as well as many are in full gear
planning or carrying out their fundraising projects. Just this
past week, I attended Vancouver Diamond Lions Club’s Meals on
Wheels Fundraiser for Care BC Organization. It was a well-
attended event with a worthy cause. There are other events
happening soon too as Christmas is fast approaching, I am looking
forward to Ambleside Tiddleycove and Vancouver South’s
Christmas Tree Sale lot, Vancouver Metropolitan Lions Club and
Granville Lions Club’s Charity Concerts and a Senior Luncheon
that is free for seniors organized by the Vancouver Arbutus, Ca-
thay, Chinatown, Evergreen, Legacy, Metropolitan, Northern
Star Lions Clubs. What a wonderful idea to have joint projects
to group more hands and minds together to do more good!
December is a great time to gather with friends, so please
come out and support your fellow lions!
As usual, Presidents are Secretaries are doing a great job filing
their WMMR and SAR on time on the MyLCI website! Thank
you for your dedication in filing those activity reports! It is al-
ways great to see Lions doing great things for the community!
The cold and rainy season is upon us so I hope everyone has
a warm and dry Winter! Stay safe and have a wonderful day!

Yours in Service and Fellowship,
