Lions Board Nominations

This year our club will be electing a 3rd Vice President, Secretary, Two 2-Year Directors, Tail Twister, and Lion Tamer. In following the Lions Club International by-laws for local clubs, I have appointed our three current Vice Presidents, Lions Brandow, Ciezki and Morgan to serve on a nominating committee. They are developing a slate of candidates that will be presented to the membership at our March 10th meeting. At that meeting we will also take nominations from the floor and close the nominations. The names of the candidates will be distributed to the membership by March 30th and voting will occur at the April 14th membership meeting

I would encourage anyone that is interested in serving in one of the above offices to contact Lion Brandow. Regarding these positions, I feel it is important for officers elected to make a sincere effort to attend most meetings. I recognize that periodically all club members find themselves unable to attend meeting. However, that should be an exception versus the rule while serving as an officer.

Lion President, Gary Tilleros

Looking Back Over 50 Years

July 8, 1968 Board Meeting Minutes – Motion made by Lion Hense that in lieu of a family picnic, the club should hold a barbecue on Fox Isle and roast our own corn.

Presidents Message March 2011

In the club’s July 2010 Newsletter I shared goals for my term. As we edge past the middle of my term, it is probably time to review my progress. If I am not doing well, I still have time to act before the end of my term.

Retain our current members and increase our club membership by 10%: Members added since July 2010 include Lions Tim Raasch, Verna Acker and Carl Henrichs. We also hope to add Cyndi Stoebich at our next membership meeting. According to Lion Cindy’s membership listing, we had 32 members on July 1st. It looks like I am getting close if all of our current members hang with me. Encourage all club members to serve and be an active participant on club committees: I managed to get everyone assigned to a committee and most committees have been active. At least I feel confident in asking specific committee chairs to update us on club projects and events. I feel strongly that involvement by individual club members is the key to maintaining and growing our membership. Check out the article on page 47 of the March 2011 Lion publication titles “Successful Committees = Successful Club”.

Arrange for our club to generate four press releases/quarter regarding club activities: That would be 16 press releases for the year. According to my count we are at six in the Waterford Post and two in the Wisconsin Lions publication. You can see it is important that I am reviewing my goals. I need to kick into high gear on this one in the remaining months.

Initiate a process to catalog and store The Lions Club of Waterford’s historical documents in the Waterford Public Library. The binders containing the documents have been prepared and the Waterford Public Library has added shelving specifically for our materials in the Waterford History Room. (The room we funded with our $25,000 donation a few years ago.) I plan to deliver the materials to the library on February 25th.

Share information from early club documents regarding the club’s history in our newsletter and other venues to recognize our 50th anniversary. I have included a section titled “Looking Back Over 50 years” in each of our newsletters since the August Newsletter was published. This information has been taken from earlier Board Meetings and is intended to provide current members with some idea of areas the club focused on in the past. We also had an article on our 50 years of service published in the Wisconsin Lions publication in November.

Run efficient and timely meetings. I keep trying to move the meetings along by referring topics that need further thought to committees or recognizing Lion Morgan for one of his timely motions. I hope club members feel we have provided adequate discussion time on topics without dragging the discussion on for too long.

One goal that I did not share in July was my plan to visit the Lions Clubs International Headquarters in Oak Brook, Il. That is still part of my bucket list for this spring. Information about Visits: The Lions Clubs International Headquarters building, located in Oak Brook, Illinois, USA, is home to the world's largest service club organization. There, 280 employees work in 43 departments, organized under 11 divisions, to serve the programming and administrative needs of the association's worldwide membership. The office is open to Lions and the general public from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Central Time, Monday through Friday.
