Lion Mixer hosted by Bill and Dave Adams
Event:  Lion Mixer hosted by Bill and Dave Adams
Date:  January 21
Time: 5:30 to 8:00
Location: ISU Insurance Services, 350 Indiana St #750 Golden, CO 80401
Hosted by Bill and Dave Adams
Our office, (approximately 2 1/2 blocks south of 6th Ave. on Indiana St., about 10-12 minutes west of I-25 and 6th Ave.)  At some point, I think the distance from I-25 is worth mentioning, since, with a Golden address, most folks expect it to take much longer to get here than it actually takes
Bring a Guest Contest
“Bring a Guest!!”
 
December 10, 2019 – March 31, 2020 Contest
 
We know that when we bring guests to our regular Denver Lions Club meetings, they enjoy the informative speakers, they learn about our many successful service projects, and they enjoy the fellowship that we have all come to relish.  We know, too, that this is the first step to inviting someone new to join our incredible club!
 
To help encourage all of us to reach out to those in our circles of influence, we will have a contest to start 2020.  For each new potential member/guest invited to a weekly Denver Lions Club meeting in for the first twelve weeks of the new club year, a member’s name goes into a drawing.  The more guests invited, the more times your name goes into the drawing. If a guest becomes a new member during this time, a member’s name gets three (3) chances in the drawing.
 
At the regular club meeting on April 9, 2020, the contest drawing will be held.  The first name drawn will have first choice of the three prizes available, the second name drawn will have second choice and the third name drawn will be awarded the remaining prize.
 
The three prizes are as follows and each consists of a minimum of four days and three nights accommodations (longer stays can be discussed with the benefactor at their discretion):

Time and arrangements to use the accommodations will be made directly with the Lion benefactor.  The Denver Lions Membership Team thanks them in advance for their generosity.
Another Successful Service Tuesday. 
The Lion Team took about an hour or so to sort and pack recycled eyeglasses.  The glasses will be shipped to the Sterling Lions Club for further processing.  The team sorted about 2500 glasses.  Thanks to all the Lions who helped.  See image below and notice the glasses being worn.    Lion Roar for David Lambert team leader.   Click here for more photos
Lion Social Media Campaign 
Our social media effort is show good results in increasing the visibility of Denver Lions.  Lions who are on Facebook can help spread awareness by “Liking” the Denver Lions Facebook.   Also, when your see a Club posting “Like” it and maybe even share it.  This has the effect of your Facebook friends seeing the postings.  Then some of your friends may “Like” it spreading even more people. 
 
Example:   We posted an image with a description about the new Lions Club in Mongolia. TWO people shared that post, but because of just those two sharing, 128 people have seen the post.

Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute Foundation
 
There continues to be awesome stories of what the doctors at the Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Institute/UC Health Eye Center are doing. Not all research is done in the laboratory. By dampening cases that are seen in the clinic seeing it is possible to learn much about the eye and be able to discover commonalities that lead to identifying causes and solutions to eye diseases. When babies are born prematurely it is possible that the eye has not received an adequate amount of oxygen. Retinopathy of Prematurity, ROP, is sight robbing if not treated. Denver is fortunate to have a community of services at the Anschutz Campus that coordinate the services of the Ophthalmologists and the Pediatricians at Children’s Hospital to treat ROP. One patient’s experience was recently captured in a UC Health article. The story of this patient has a very positive outcome as a result of the doctor at our Rocky Mountain Eye Institute.
 
At a recent symposium hosted by the CU Department of Ophthalmology your RMLEIF was represented by RMLEIF Trustee Sally Hooks at an event recognizing the large give to the Institute by Sue Anschultz-Rogers. “Sally was able to sneak in a few minutes with Sue to introduce herself. Sue reemphasized how important it was to her to ensure the Lions understood she wasn’t trying to overshadow all they have done for the Center” per the reports provided to me by the University. It is so very exciting to watch our Lions project attract such awesome support and recognition!
 
There are still needs. “Where there is a need, there is a Lion.” Our current activity of providing funds to equip five exam rooms is progressing. Mission 20/20! is set to accomplish this by the end of 2020. The plan is to raise one hundred twenty-five thousand from entities identified by you and to match those dollars with LCIF to be a total of a quarter of a million dollars. Please contact your RMLEIF Trustee if you have knowledge of an employer, Foundation, community entity or others that might be interested in being part of this marvelous project.
 
The RMLEIF is seeking a Lion to fill our vacant treasurer position. RMLEIF.org
