Dear Bellville Lions
It is a humbling honor to serve the Bellville Lions Club as your president for the 2015-2016 Lions year. Marie and I are relative new comers to the Bellville area and we thank you for your trust for allowing me to hold this important position with the Bellville Lions Club.
We had a great year for 2014-2015 and I’d like to say a big “Thank You” to immediate past president Jess Koy and his board of directors for passing on a healthy club to this current year. As a past District Treasurer under PDG Ernie Koy, I unfortunately saw some clubs that were not in good shape.
Being the great club we are, there are many opportunities for us to serve our community in meaningful ways for meaningful positive differences. Our board and I will be reviewing new ways to serve our neighbors. I look forward to seeing our fundraisers continue to do well. I look forward to working with our community leaders, the local charitable organizations, our current board of directors, and all our club’s members.
Thank you again for your trust.
