 “Over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house we
go……..”. As a child, this song meant to me that it was Thanksgiving and the
whole family would be gathering at Grandma’s house. The men chopped                  Vice District Governor
wood; the women cooked a huge meal; and the cousins played games, laughed            Dave Parker

cellar was stocked with fruits and vegetables; meat was cured in the                 dpmd25eone@gmail.com
smokehouse; and the woodpile was taller than me! As we gathered for our              812-235-8738
meal, Grandpa would take a few moments to remind us how blessed we were
                                                                                     2nd Vice District Governor

Lions are similar to grandparents and parents. We train new members to be
involved with their clubs and keep them involved until they are fully prepared       Cabinet Secretary

while others may desire to take on leadership roles. There are opportunities for     Terre Haute, IN 47802
all Lions to be involved at whatever level they choose. But each Lion must           812-299-2019
determine his/her own commitment.                                                    pmlaray@frontier.com

This has been an exciting year for me and I am truly grateful for every Lion of      Riley, IN 47871
District E1! It has been good to develop new friendships while renewing some         812-894-2750
of the older friendships. PCC Vernon and I wish you a very “Happy                    vtincher@ma.rr.com
Thanksgiving!” DG Sara and PCC Vernon
                           It doesn’t seem possible that Thanksgiving is this month. But time moves on and we must plan
                             for the future. The Indiana Lions (MD 25) District Governors (hopefuls) for next year have
                           started their training and formulating a plan for the next Lions year. And if all goes as planned
                                                   I look forward to serving and visiting each of you.

                           If you plan to hold a position of leadership I urge each of you to start making a plan and attend
                           training for that position. In the meantime I hope to get-out-the-word that every Lion and all
                           visitors are invited to the district functions and I hope to see each you at the cabinet meeting
                           and at midwinter conference.
                            Happy Thanksgiving to you and those you serve. ........VDG David

                         November is here , a time to reflect over the year and be thankful for the many blessings we so
                         often take for granted. The air we breathe, the water we drink, a bed to sleep in, a roof over our
                        head and life , oh how precious. Recently a family that I do not know suddenly lost their 29 year
                          old daughter in a head-on collision. She and her baby daughter lived with her parents. When I
                           learned of this tragic event I called on them, introduced myself and explained that I had just
                       learned of their tragedy. I gave them some money to help in some small way with their unexpected
                       expenses. They of course are devastated. As many tears were shed I listened to them talk and I ask
                             if I could hug each one of them. Then I offered to be of help in any way that I could. The
                               grandmother kept hugging me and said" you have already helped by showing that you
                        care". Wow! We can be a "Beacon of Hope " in so many ways. Our Lions club has voted also to
                       send a check for them to use however they need. Let's remember to call on those we know of who
                            are hurting because of losing loved ones. My challenge this month is to have a wonderful
                          'Thanksgiving" and remember to be thankful ALL year long. We can be a "Beacon of Hope "
                  where ever we are. Blessings to all of you as together "We Serve".....2nd VDG Brenda

 The Traveling Gavel.------Our very large gavel that travels from club to club is a fun way to visit other clubs. In my
 year as President of the Eminence Lions Club we received the gavel from the Bloomington West Lions Club. Since I
 was also the Zone Chair I decided it would be a good way to have all of the Clubs in my Zone pay a visit to each other.
 We visited the Cunot Club and were they surprised when I pulled the big gavel out of my shopping bag. Cunot Lions
 then took it to Gosport. They gladly accepted and later enjoyed handing it over to the Spencer club who in turn passed
 it on to the Mooresville Lions. Last night it finally made it to the Monrovia Lions Club. So watch out !!!! When you
 see a Monrovia Lion pay a visit to your club---SURPRISE --The Traveling Gavel has arrived. --Have fun passing it

Lions Law Camp State Chair - Past Council Chair Linda Tincher
Law Camp is over for2010, but we will soon be working on plans for 2011. In fact, newly promoted Sergeant " Lion"
Eric Dunn and PCC Linda Tincher will be conducting a Law Camp Workshop at Mid Winter Conference. Lions Law
                 Camp is for any boy or girls, entering or already in, the 7th or 8th grade next fall. We are looking for
                 good kids that are interested in what police officers do and how they can help their communities. We
                 are NOT looking for individuals that are in trouble with the law.

                   Plan to attend this very informative workshop and learn how you can identify students to attend this
                   camp. You will also learn how you help out - even if you don't have a child to send to the camp.

                    Lions Law Camp is a fun filled camp that runs Wed through Saturday at Vincennes and Anderson
Universities mid- June and July. Students participate in mock investigations, swimming, learn about internet safety and
how to keep from being bullied, how to be respectful, and gain respect for themselves as well as many other behind the
scenes activities of law enforcement. They also witness Lions promoting the "We Serve" motto as well as the police
officers living up to their motto of "To Serve & to Protect."

District Diabetes Awareness Chair...... PDG Lion Jim Brown
Along with the cooler weather and colorful leaves of Fall, comes the beginning of cold and flu season. Traditionally,
October and November are the months to get vaccinated against the flu, a potentially deadly and highly contagious
disease. Flu season can last until as late as May.

The flu is a respiratory illness caused by the influenza virus. For people with diabetes, this illness can impair the immune
system and cause serious complications such as bacterial pneumonia, dehydration, and an overall worsening of an already
difficult disease. People with diabetes who develop the flu are also at a high risk for developing pneumonia. People with
diabetes are three times more likely to die with influenza or the pneumonia. They are also six times more likely to be
hospitalized due to flu complications. For these reasons, everyone with diabetes should get a flu immunization as soon as
the annual vaccine becomes available.

The flu virus spreads mainly from person to person by way of coughing, sneezing, or transmission of the virus from an
object to the person’s mouth or nose. A person can be contagious from 1 day before symptoms appear up to 5 days after
becoming sick. It takes about 2 weeks after getting the flu vaccine for the antibodies to protect against the flu virus.

                                             PDG Mark Clark MD 25 Leadership Development Chairman

                           Just as the seasons are finally beginning to change, we realize that our Lions year is already
                           one-fourth complete. Soon the new calendar year will be upon us and January 2011 will be
                           here before we are aware. Mark January 8, 2011 on your calendar NOW. January 8, 2011 is
                           the date that Lions from across our Multiple District come together to learn and share ideas to
                           strengthen themselves individually and collectively.

                            Our Mid-Winter Leadership Conference will be held at Lawrence Central High School
                           located at 7300 East 56th Street, Indianapolis. The registration form is in this issue of the
                           Hoosier Lion and lists the many seminar topics that will be offered to the Lions this year. As
                           we know, Lions in Indiana perform outstanding and life changing service to others across our
state. As a Beacon of Service our clubs do extraordinary activities each and every day. To this end the Mid-Winter
Conference will offer seminars and workshops showing those services and activities. Our classes will also help give Lion
leaders new ideas on many different topics that are important to our individual clubs. We will have PID Dennis Cobler
leading a seminar on the new Club Excellence Program which I am sure will excite and motivate Lions in continued club

Our keynote presenter will be PID Harold R. Ott from Boalsburg, PA. Not only has PID Harold served in many club and
district positions, but he also serves as the LCIF Coordinator and as a Global Membership team advisor for Multiple
District 14. During his term PID Harold served on the Leadership and Executive committees of our International Board
of Directors. With this background, we can be assured of a GREAT keynote presentation that will inspire and motivate us
to continue our work in Indiana. PID Harold will also be leading a seminar at the conference, so this will be a perfect
opportunity for Indiana Lions to learn up close and personal from a past international director. Our conference is
privileged to have two past international directors attend and provide us with information that will help us grow and
mature as Lion Leaders.

With these two past international directors and our own line up of excellent presenters from Indiana, you can be assured
that the Mid Winter Leadership Conference will be a day of learning, motivation and inspiration for all of us. So while
you are reading this article now, do not let time pass you by. Find the registration form in this issue of the Hoosier Lion,
cut it out, complete it and mail it to our registrar, PDG Jim Querry. Mark your calendar now so you won’t forget to attend
the Mid-Winter Leadership Conference on January 8, 2011. I look forward to seeing your there.

                    Again this year there will be a silent auction at the Indiana Lions Mid-Winter
                    Leadership Conference on January 8, 2011 in Indianapolis. Each Indiana Lions
                    District is asked to donate at least 3 items worth $20 or more for the auction.

                    Last year every district made an outstanding effort to make the auction a great
                    success and over $1000 was raised for the Leo program. If you have items to
                    donate for the auction please contact DG Sara Provines, who will organize our
                    district’s participation.

        85th Anniversary Martinsville Noon
                   by Betty Jo Blunk, & J. Ross Drapalik

                                                The Martinsville Noon Lions
                                                Club recently celebrated its
                                                85th anniversary of service to
                                                the Martinsville community
                                                and the world at a banquet
                                                held on October 23, 2010 at
                                                Liberty Christian Church in
                                                Martinsville. The
Martinsville Lions Club was chartered by nineteen area

The evening’s Master of Ceremonies, Lion Phil Deckard,
acknowledged several dignitaries from visiting clubs from around the state including Past International Director Doug
Lozier from Carmel, Indiana, and International 2 nd Vice President Wayne Madden from Auburn, Indiana.

Martinsville Noon Lions Club President J. Ross Drapalik noted that much of the success that the club has had during the
past 85 years revolves simply around having fun. Another unique feature of the club is that it has had 86 presidents
during the past 85 years with no one Lion having served more than a single, one-year term. This long standing tradition
insures that the club keeps moving forward with fresh, new ideas in an ever changing society.

Lions Clubs International 2nd Vice President Wayne Madden delivered greetings from International President Sid L.
Scruggs, III, from North Carolina, who congratulated the club on 85 years of excellence and service to Lions Clubs

Past International Director Doug Lozier was introduced as the evening’s keynote speaker by Past District Governor Ray
Blunk of the Martinsville Noon Lions Club, and PID Lozier gave a brief history of the events that happened in 1925. Of
particular interest was that in 1925 Helen Keller addressed the delegates at the Lions International Convention in Cedar
Point, Ohio, and dubbed the Lions as the “Knights of the Blind.” Lozier also noted local relief efforts that the Lions
provided during the 2002 tornado and the 2008 flood as well as the
international relief efforts in Sumatra, Indonesia after the tsunami
in 2004 and after the earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti earlier this
year. He challenged the Lions to imagine a world without Lions.

Lion Leroy Postel capped off the evening by awarding several
Monarch Awards for extended service to the Lions Club, with the
most notable award being a “60 Year Monarch Award” presented
to Lion Hubert Bastin for 60 years of service to the Martinsville
Noon Lion Club.

The sixty-six members of the Martinsville Noon Lions Club are
members of Lions Clubs International which currently has 1.35               Pictured left to right: Lion Leroy Postel, Lion Hubert “Boob” Bastin,

geographic areas. The Martinsville Noon Lions Club has a long               Lion John Basham
tradition of furnishing eye glasses to needy children and works
closely with area optometrists to insure that no child be left in the dark. Most recently the club has partnered with the
other six Lions Club from Morgan County to vision screen the children of Morgan County. Within the next week, all of

(continued from page 10) the kindergarten, first and third grade students in the MSD of Martinsville will have been
screened by the local Lions Clubs. The Martinsville Noon Lions club has also been active with Operation KidSight,
which provides vision screening to preschool age children ages 1-5.

In addition to these services, the Martinsville Noon Lions Club annually contributes around $12,000 back to the
community through various donations to other not-for-profit organizations, youth services, and academic scholarships.

The Martinsville Noon Lions supports the five Indiana Lions state projects including the Indiana Lions Cancer Control
Fund, the Indiana Lions Eye & Tissue Transplant Bank, Leader Dogs for the Blind, Indiana School for the Blind and
Visually Impaired, and Indiana Lions Speech & Hearing.
