                                     Message from District Governor Ray Hebert
                                                                                                    
My fellow Lions: Summer has finally arrived. As I sit here writing this, it is about 90 degrees but
I am not complaining. This is better than cold and wet. By the time you read this, our first
Cabinet Advisory meeting will already be history and two months of my term will already be
over. Where does the time go?

But here we are in September, clubs are back to having meetings and everyone is planning for
our first big district event, THE WALK-A-LONG. Last year, our district raised over $312,000
for Mass Lions Eye Research. Let’s give this year a good beginning by supporting the Walk.
There is no reason why at least one person from each club cannot be there to help with this
worthwhile project.

If you were at the Cabinet Advisory meeting, you know that one of my goals this year is to
increase our participation in youth programs. After having been a teacher for 35 years, this
seems a natural goal for me. Clubs do pretty well with the Peace Poster contest but other youth
programs are seeing less and less participation. Youth Speech and All-State Band are concerns of
mine. I remember when the band would have 120 members with 40 of those coming from
District S. Last year I think we had 12. Youth Speech had less than 25 clubs participate last year.
These are fine programs and yes, I know that it is tough to get into the schools to have them
participate. This does not mean that we should stop trying, however. Keep at it. You will
succeed.

I would also like to see more clubs form Leo Clubs in their communities. Most high schools
require community service hours for graduation now. Why not get those hours by participating in
a Leo Club? This past summer for the first time in a long while, we had students visiting our
district through the Youth Exchange program. Martin Middleton worked long and hard to make
this a success. Thank you Martin. Bridgewater Academy, Dennis-Harwich and South Attleboro
received valuable points in the district contest for hosting students.
In closing, I wish every club great success in their endeavors this year. Have fun and take care
of those less fortunate in your communities.

Good Luck.
DG Ray

District 33S             A NOTE FROM LION CST DAVID BARBOUR


The 2009-2010 Lions District 33S “District Directory” was scheduled to be distributed to
District Clubs at the August 24, 2009 Lions Cabinet Advisory Meeting.

Due to circumstances, I was not able to meet this expectation and take full responsibility for this situation.
I apologize to Lion DG Ray and the Lions of District 33S for this inconvenience. The Directory will be
distributed to Clubs by their assigned Zone Chairpersons with the goal of every club in the District having
their copies of the Directory by their first Club meeting in September. Each District Club receives copies
of the Directory for the President, Secretary, and Membership Chairperson. Also, I will oversee the
distribution of the Directory to all those individuals who are scheduled to receive copies. Please contact
me at anytime if you have questions or comments regarding the Directory, or any other Lions matter, at
dbarbour1@aol.com or 508-397-3853.

 Work Together..
."We Serve".

Yours in Lionism

CST Dave

                              YOUTH CAMP AND EXCHANGE


Greetings Fellow Lions! It's hard to believe that our first successful year participating in the
program has just ended. The purpose of the program is to create and foster a spirit of
understanding among people of the world. It was a rousing success!

This summer we hosted two lovely young ladies from Algeria. Being Muslim, they both had a
fear that they would not be accepted here in the US. They expected to encounter a certain amount
of anti-Muslim sentiment from Americans, given the current world situation. I am happy to
report that--thanks to the host families with with they stayed--not only were their fears alleviated,
they were thrilled and surprised by the warm welcome they received in our country. Some new
friendships were forged

Special Thanks goes out to the following Lions: Sharon Audette, Rick and Pam Bliss, Beverly
Dillon, Sandy Fife, Lorraine Guy (and her daughter Erica Benoit), and Jane Otis for agreeing to
host our visitors. Without you, the program would not have been a success this year! I will be
visiting each of your clubs to deliver banner patches and pins.

So what now? Well, there are big things planned for the summer of 2010. I am proud to
announce that this year Massachusetts will be hosting a Youth Camp! A website will be going
online soon and there will be plenty of info to come.

In the meantime, in addition to host families, this year there will a need for chaperones, LEO
ambassadors, transportation coordinators, etc. I'm currently working on a DVD that will be
available to any club that's interested. I would love to see the DVD broadcast on your local cable
access stations.

I'm also looking for folks who are interested in joining the Youth Exchange Committee to help
get this all organized. After all, on person can't do everything! It doesn't take a lot of time and
your help will be truly appreciated.

With your help I believe we can make the Massachusetts Youth Camp THE premier camp that
young people from around the world will want to visit!

Yours In Lionism,
Martin Middleton
33S Youth Camp and Exchange Chair

                     Operation Shoebox – A Time to Remember 
Operation Shoebox began 4 years ago as a means by which members of District 33-S could
demonstrate their care and support for those currently serving in the armed forces who are
sacrificing so much that we may enjoy our freedoms. While currently our primary emphasis is to
support those currently stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan, we will send care packages to any unit
or individual in the world. We need items for the troops, the names of individual members or
units, and money for postage. Items themselves do not need to be packed in shoeboxes – they
will be prepared and boxed with other items for units or individuals. I’ve talked to many
returning soldiers and marines to realize that our efforts are appreciated and welcomed. The
collection of items for the troops will begin on October 29th at the Cabinet Advisory Meeting.
Help support our troops and show them that they are not forgotten.
