TO EMPOWER volunteers to serve their communities, meet humanitarian needs, encourage peace and promote international understanding through Lions clubs. Thank you for your interest in becoming a Lion.
The Dexter Lions have certainly met the challenge of bringing in new members
to the club! Last December, we added 12 new members and in May we have now added 8 new
members who will be inducted at the June 2nd meeting.
Please welcome the 8 new members:
Gail Girbach ( sponsor- Jerry Black); Christine Marquis ( sponsor-Rex Reeve); Donna Piper
( sponsor- Terry Walters); Richard Range ( sponsor-Jerry Black); Alysia and Jordon Styrk
( sponsor- Rex Reeve) ; Sharon Wheeler ( sponsor- Mary Black ) and Greg Marquis ( sponsor-
Christine Marquis). Dexter Lions have added 20 new members to the club this year! That is a
new record! The Dexter Lions presently have 70 members. Keep it going. DG Terri Huffman will
attend the meeting on June 2ndat DAPCO to induct the new members.
Orientation - One important aspect for new Lions is providing them with an orientation about
Lions. There are many aspects of the Lions organization that are not always mentioned and it is important for new Lions to hear about the structure of Lions and the projects they sponsor as well as learning about other opportunities for Lions members and to answer questions the may have.

Lions meet the needs of local communities and the world.

Our members are a network of individual clubs united in helping others and improving their communities.
