don’t worry about him drinking all the craft beer-we will have Coors for him.

Lions Social Media Results
One of our goals is to increase the awareness of Denver Lions programs and projects.  We are using our website and social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.  This effort started on October 1st.  Facebook and Google Analytics has an incredible amount of detailed data.  The following are some highlights of the data for the first seven days:
  • Website:
    • 286 people view the website
    • In total, 679 pages on the website were viewed
    • 59% were female and 41% male
    • 64% were 45 years or older
    • 58% used their desktop computer and 42% use a mobile device.
    • Most popular page was the eyeglass collect boxes – 94 hits
  • Facebook
    • 10,132 people have seen our posts as they scroll through.  This is great for increasing awareness
    • Of those people, 415 clicked on the post for more information.
The platforms are liked together. Such as someone clicks on the Facebook post it can direct them to our website for more information. 
For Lions who have Facebook accounts please go the Denver Lions Facebook page and “Like”.  Also, review the page and post something about the Club.
We are in the process of updating the website so you will see changes over the coming weeks.
Membership Minute - Tell the Story
Bring a friend to a meeting.
We've talked a lot about how to invite people and what to do when you invite people and how to think about it. We've talked about the three-minute egg timer so that you spend at least three minutes a week thinking about who you might invite and ask to join our gang: people who like to serve, people who are good company, people who have a heart for helping people. But here's the question of the week: Have you admitted to anybody lately that you're a Lion? Have you admitted it? Come on. Have you told a story about what goes on at a Lion’s function, what goes on at a Lions luncheon? Have you talked about the golf tournament? Have you invited somebody to the golf tournament yet? Have you told them about that child who now has glasses and was previously struggling in school? Have you told them about the cornea transplants? Have you talked about any of these things? Because one of the things we do is just share with people what you do in Lions, what you've contributed to and what you've taken part in.  They just might be drawn to our club. They might ask you if they can come with you. So if you're having trouble asking somebody, maybe somebody will ask you if they can join you after you tell a Lions story. Maybe, after sharing a story you won't even have to ask them. This is just a concept you might try. I don't see a lot of guests today, so I think you're not asking enough or not telling enough stories. So maybe you should tell and wait for them to ask you. That's it for today. 
Bring a friend to the Lion Mixer at Lion Dwight's home on October 15.
