Dear Friends at the Denver Lions Club,
It goes without saying that much has changed for all of us. One that we will miss is the opportunity to interact with Lions at the state convention. It is at these conventions that we hold our organizational annual meeting with the membership. We typically present a written, interim report to Lions of MD-6.
As a club that has made contributions to RMLEB in this fiscal year, we wanted to make sure your members got this report. It outlines the great challenges, and the great responsibility, the eye bank is going through during this pandemic that your support helps us face.  CLICK HERE FOR THE ANNUAL REPORT
We hope that you will share this link with your club members and extend our thanks and warm wishes for their continued health and safety.
