You do not need to register for the convention to stuff bags.
Lions District 6C, our District, is putting together 250 backpacks for homeless veterans as a service project for the 6C convention.
Our Foundation will generously donate to the cause so the organizers can purchase the needed ingredients for the backpacks.
Denver Lions, this is a great opportunity to show our Denver Den pride and have a good turnout here.  I ask all new members, especially those not involved with a project yet, to be there and help.
I would like to get at least five of us there, preferably newer members so you can also meet other Lions from other clubs.
We need to RSVP how many we have coming by the end of March, so please respond to this email with your intentions to help.  Feel free to bring your family or friends to help as well.  There will be a hospitality room open to all the volunteers that evening as a small reward for showing up!
Lions Banquet and Golf June 4
Well, it’s that time of year again to start thinking about the Denver Lions annual golf outing and banquet!  This will be held at Meadow Hills GC and will be on June 4, 2024, with tee times starting at noon, the bar opening at 5 pm, and the banquet starting at 6 pm.

As always, we invite everyone to participate in the golf and banquet or just the banquet.  Invite your friends and family.  Door prizes will be available to all.

This is my call for donations for door prizes, either monetary or item. Any sort of item will do, and it does not need to be related to golf. Thanks to all for your previous support with this.

I need your RSVPs to determine whether you plan to attend just the golf, just the banquet, or both.

Golfers, as always, this is a scramble tournament open to players of all abilities. Please invite family and friends to join you for this and the banquet. If you are planning to golf, I need to know if you have others you want to play with for your foursome.

To recap:
Golf and Banquet, June 4
Need door prizes or money to buy them
Will you attend
Will you have guests?  Who and how many?
Do you want to have fun??  YAY! 

Details on the golf rules and dinner menu to come later.

Lions branding change
Our two historic brands, Lions Clubs International and Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), are uniting under one "umbrella" brand—Lions International—so we can talk to the world about our collective service and impact. Because the world sees us as one. They see us as Lions. And the truth is, we are united in our mission of service.

LCIF update
A good and faithful Lion passed from our mists. That Lion was PCC Lance Balding of 6W and former MD6 Lions Club International Foundation (LCIF) Coordinator. I admired his passion and enthusiasm for Lions International, LCIF and Pin designing and collecting. I also enjoyed serving and learning from him. He was a patient, wise and kind mentor. He will be so missed.
Giving is just starting to increase! Thanks to all of you in Multiple District 6 (MD6) who have been donating to Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) this Lion’s year. As of 1/31/2024, about one-third of our clubs throughout Colorado have raised nearly $27,438. This is 40% of our published goal $68,310; and 37% of the stretch goal of $75,000 that PIP Brian Sheehan hopes we in MD6 will reach by the end of this Lion’s year.
We would love to have 100% club participation! If you or your Club have not made a donation as yet, it is not too late to help us raise more money. We only have five months left so let’s STRETCH!
There are many ways to give to LCIF both as a club and as an individual - - monthly installments; one-time contributions on-line through the website or by use the QR codes; a qualified contribution distribution (QCD), or through a legacy arrangement.
Fundraisers - Your club can also hold a fundraiser to raise funds for LCIF - - I expect each District to have some sort of fundraiser at their respective Conventions as well as at the MD6 Convention. Ideas might include 50/50 raffles, silent auctions, golf tournaments, roulette wheels, recycling aluminum cans or eyeglass cases containing metals; guessing games...the list goes on. Just be sure to put the FUN in fundraising!
DCG Grant Approved! District 6C recently applied for and was approved for its first District/Club Community Grant (DCG) in the amount of $2,500 for a Service Project called Helping Homeless Veterans Backpack Project which will be conducted at the District 6C Convention on Friday evening (April 19th). They plan to assemble and fill 250 backpacks for this Project.
