  • FUNDING NEEDED — From March 14 through 20, 2024 more than one hundred Lions from around the world will be descending on Vancouver, BC Canada to attend the Spring 2024 Lions International Board of Directors Meeting. Attendees will include the International Directors, International President Dr. Patti Hill, the Lions International Vice Presidents, the Lions International staff, and their companions. Multiple District 19 is the official Host of this event, which is quite an honor! But MD19 needs some funding to be a proper host — MD19 will be holding a “Host Night” for the attendees on Sunday, March 17, 2024. The Host Committee is seeking donations from clubs and Lions to cover the costs of hosting the meeting in general, and Host Night in particular. A club donation of $100 to $500 per club member is suggested, but no amount is too small and any amount will be appreciated. Checks or money orders can be mailed to: Multiple District 19, 4141 Bennett Drive, Bellingham, WA 98226. Please note in the memo line “ID Visit”.
