TO ALL OF DISTRICT 14-M
Psalm 106 – teaches us “Oh give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good … I too received my District Governor charge at home with my wife Annette, and family. We were to go to Montreal, Canada, but still do to Covid-19 we did not go.
With great anticipation I except the great mantel of continuing to move District 14-M forward. Our International President, Douglas X. Alexander’s moto is Service from the heart and with that theme of service, I am choosing, Service with love.
I feel it is so important that in a world of so much hate, broken dreams, and shattered lives, we as Lions must show love. One of the things we do as Lions, is deal with hurting people of the World.
Shakespeare said it best with Macbeth, “The quality of mercy is not strained, it droppeth as the gentle rain from Heaven upon the place beneath. It is twice blest: it blesseth him that gives and him that takes.” Portia, in William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice, Act 4, Scene1.
I want to thank my club, Monongahela/Donora Lions Club, for their love and support, the very special people of District 14-M that trusted and believed in me along this way to District Governor. Thanks to the love of my life, my wife, Annette Jackson for her help and support.
John 14, KJV- God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son … As Lions we give our time and service with love and from the heart.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart.” By Helen Keller
Service With Love,
District Governor 14-M
