            Reflections on the Lions International Convention Boston 2006
                             by District Governor Tom Lonn
 We had a good time in Boston, with the District Governor’s training taking up the first
 four days we were there. The nine Governors from MD 19 were all there and we did
 quite a few things together and we bonded together as a group.
 During the training, our International President, Jimmy Ross, talked to the 756
 District Governors elect on three occasions. Jimmy Ross is a great speaker and his
 views are the same as what we would like to do in District C. He sees us first taking
 care of our communities and where our members live. If we do this, we will encourage
 other community-minded citizens to join our clubs. As our clubs grow and become
 healthy, we will be able to do more for our communities and be able to help those less
 fortunate than ourselves. At the same time, we live up to our motto of “We Serve.”
 President Ross is from Quitaque, Texas, where he farmed and raised cattle. He has
 done many other things in his community – as a member of both the Water Control and
 Improvement Board and the District Juvenile Probation Board. He joined Lions in
 1969, was elected District Governor in 1985, International Director in 1996 and 2nd
 Vice President in 2004. There will be more about our International President in future
 issues of this Newsletter.
