District Governor Simon Yau’s Message

DGSIMONGood Day Lions!

Wow time sure flew by and our first official month in the 2016-2017 Lions year has alreadypassed by.  During September, I have already visited 5 Clubs in Zone A3 and A7, also 1zone meeting for Zone A7.

October is the Membership Growth Month.  Please note that Clubs who increase their membership in October will receive a Membership Growth Patch from LCI for your Club’s banner.  So start telling your friends and families about your club now and invite them to your club’s monthly meetings!  Club Open House is a fantastic way to spread the word about your club’s purpose and achievements so if your club has not planned one yet, it is not too late!

Once again I am greatly impressed by all the Presidents and Secretaries, you are all filing your reports on time and club members are all participating in the Clubs’ events and coming up with innovative ideas for new fundraising initiatives.  Just a kind reminder that there are 4 Centennial Projects that LCI is promoting to celebrate Lions Club’s 100th Year.  The 4 projects include “engaging the youth, relieving the hunger, sight and also environmental awareness”, if your club wishes to plan your events around those 4 themes, do not forget to report them onto the mylci website.  I am looking forward to participating in more of your future events.

There is also the MD19 Annual Convention on October 19-22 that is coming up so I hope to see you there to share your Lions achievements with all.

Keep up the good work everyone and I look forward to seeing you in my October visits!  Enjoy the fall weather, stay warm and keep well.

Yours in Service and Fellowship,


Simon Yau 
District Governor 19A
