LIONS MEET CENTENNIAL SERVICE GOAL!!!
To honor the 100th anniversary of Lions Clubs International, Lions Clubs around the world were challenged to serve at least
100 million people in four areas--Youth, Vision, Hunger, and the Environment--by June 30, 2018.
This was a lofty goal for the Centennial Service Challenge -- but Lions worldwide achieved the goal! In fact, they did it at the halfway point of the Centennial Service Challenge.
Where there is a need -- there is a Lion! WE SERVE!!!
ABOUT THE LIONS EFFORTS IN MEETING THE GOAL!

WAYNE CHOWNING WINS ROBY LIONS RAFFLE
September 29, 2016 -- Members of the Roby Lions Club hosted District 2-T2 Governor Jim Petty as they prepared to name their raffle winner of the Dallas Cowboys Fan Trip. District Governor Petty, three other district officials and five local guests were all welcomed for lunch.
Following the governor’s presentation, time came for drawing a raffle winner. Mr. Wayne Chowning’s name was drawn by District Governor Petty as the recipient of the trip to Green Bay, Wisconsin. Mr. Chowning of Sweetwater and a guest will attend the fun-filled weekend’s events with the Cowboys/Packers game being the trip highlight. Thanks to VIP Sports Getaway for working with the club on the trip package.
According to club president, Carolyn Hargrove, “Money raised from the raffle will be used for eyeglasses, scholarships, shipping costs for book grants and other needs in our community. Lions members thank everyone who contributes to this important work. You are truly helping Lions make a difference in our community.”

DID YOU KNOW??
The roots of District 2-T2 began in 1922
when a Lions Club was formed in Snyder, TX. It failed to go -- but on
August 28, 1924, the "granddaddy" of all our clubs was chartered. At
that time, it was the 51st Lions Club in Texas and the 761st club
organized in the world. At that time, there were only 39,943 members in
the U.S. and Canada (Source:
1977 -78 District 2-T2 Windmill newsletter).
