Speaker - May 28 -  Jamie Giellis
Jamie Giellis, a candidate for Denver mayor, will be speaking at Denver Lions on May 28 at Savio House, 320 Lowell, Denver, CO  80219
Since we expect a larger than normal turnout, reservations will be needed for you and any guests you may invite.  This is important as we need to give the Savio the number of people attending so there are enough tables and food.  This meeting is a chance to show off the Denver Lions so guests are welcome.
It is very important that you make a reservation.  Reservations can be made by responding to this E-vite.  Or by calling the Club phone number and leaving a message.  303.504.6293
"The daughter of a small-town Iowa mayor, she rose to some prominence in Denver as a new breed of public-private leader." – The Denver Post, December 26, 2018
People are the biggest part of her story. Community is core to who she is and how she works. At 42, Jamie has carved out a career that helps to empower people and neighborhoods to forge partnerships with each other and local government to address complicated urban issues affecting the character and stability of their communities. Part-community organizer, part-strategic planner, part-people-champion, her work has been focused on using policy and planning to help ease the impacts of growth that have come with the return of people to cities – here in Denver, across the country and around the world.
Lions Visible Tuesday 5/21
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, May 21, 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!

Recycled for Sight 
It has been over eight months since we sent the accumulated eyeglasses to Sterling.  Golden Lions and Denver Lions were the dropoff point for eyeglasses.   A truck was loaded with all the glasses.  There were literally thousands of eyeglasses.  A large portion was sorted by Lion Emerson.  Thank you, EM.
