Lions Visible Tuesday 4/16
Please help out at our event this week. Here are the particulars:
  • Event: Denver Lions Club Visible Tuesday
  • Time: 11:00 am to 2:00 pm, Tuesday, April 16, 2019
  • Place: 16th Street Mall (near Glenarm - see below)
  • Shifts: two 2-hour shifts, 10:30 am - 12:30 pm (includes set-up) and 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm (includes break-down)
  • Lunch: at the Corner Bakery Cafe (next to Maggiano's) from 12:00 - 1:00 pm (in between shifts)
Please help out if at all possible; let me know if you can come so we can coordinate logistics and make lunch plans accordingly. Visible Tuesday is a great way to get the Club's name out in the community and recruit new members. In the past, we've made good connections through the Recycle for Sight eyeglasses program on display at our tent. People in the community really KNOW this program and WANT to contribute used eyeglasses and, in the process, find out from us about Lionism and all the other things we do as well.
And the high temperature on Tuesday will be 71 degrees - great day to be outside!
Mayor Hancock - Speaker May 14
Save the date - May 14 for our speaker Mayor Hancock.  
Because of having more than the usual number of guests and members, reservations will be needed.  We need this to give a count to the restaurant.  You will be receiving an Evite next week.  Please RSVP
Denver Lions Partnering to Help Communities
The school was out and the student doctor was in – as was the ophthalmologist, the dentist, the pharmacist and others in the health field. The Urban Underserved Track (UUT) at the CU School of Medicine held its second health fair in partnership with the Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning and the Lions Club at the New America School in Denver, providing mostly immigrant students and their communities free health and vision screenings after the bell and before bedtime.

Lion Dr Bateman receives an award
2019 Recipients
J. Bronwyn Bateman MD (USA) &
Bradley R. Straatsma MD JD (USA)
Denver Lion Dr Bateman remains involved with the Pan American Organization of Ophthalmologists.  She is a past president.  LCIF supports the PAAO and has a liaison to their board.  At the recent meeting in Cancun Lion Dr. Bateman was recognized for her continued work for the PAAO.  She still remembers the Colorado/Wyoming Lions as her friends.
Established in 1983, the Pan-American Medal for Distinguished Services Award is presented at Pan-American congresses to individuals who have provided exemplary service to the Pan-American Association of Ophthalmology for continuing education for ophthalmologists, the prevention of blindness and the promotion of scientific and cultural exchange among ophthalmologists in the Western Hemisphere.  The name change took place in 1999 to honor A. Edward Maumenee, MD, for his extensive contribution to the Pan-American cause, making the award to be the A. Edward Maumenee Award for Distinguished Services.
Visit by an international Lion
At the Denver Lions meeting, we had a special international guest.  Stefan Chorus, District Governor, from Lions Club in Luxembourg joined us.  He was in Denver for a data archiving conference.   His Club is large with about 70 members.  His Club has the same successes and challenges as ours.   We were all pleased that Stefan took time from his busy schedule to attend our meeting.

Denver Lions Constitution Updated
The Denver Lions constitution has been updated.   The proposed changes were mailed to all members on February 11.  The board took comments into consideration.  During the April 3 Lions Club Board meeting, the new constitution was voted and passed unanimously.  The updated constitution will be posted on the Denver Lions website,  
Bronco Tickets
It is almost springtime and time to think about Bronco's.  The Club has two pairs of Bronco's season tickets.   The seats are section 103 rows 13 and 16.  If you ever sat in these seats you would know how great they are.  Up close to the action on about the 30-yard line.  Pure excitement. 
As we did last year we will auction the tickets to Lions..  The process is if you are interested in one or both pairs of tickets send an email to Lion Dwight that you are interested.   He needs to receive the email that you are interested in participating in the auction by April 30.  We will then have a sealed bid auction with the interested Lions.  High bid wins.  
The face value and minimum bid is $3452 for one pair of tickets for the regular season games.  The preseason games are available at no charge.  We usually give the preseason games to Savio house.  The winning bid above the face value can be given the Foundation.  
If you want to be in the auction send an email to Lion Dwight. 
The Home games are:
  • Jacksonville Jaguars       
  • Tennessee Titans            
  • Chicago Bears   
  • Detroit Lions     
  • Cleveland Browns           
  • Los Angeles Chargers (AFC West)             
  • Oakland Raiders (AFC West)       
  • Kansas City Chiefs (AFC West)
