The Flin Flon Lions Club hosted their District Governor Omer Champigny from the Oak Lake Lions Club Wednesday night. He spoke to the Club about the need for more members in Lions Clubs especially young people. He said membership continues to drop noting three clubs in the province are in the process of folding but they are working on developing a Club in Arborg. He says there’s also a need for more women in Clubs noting the areas with the most women are Central America, the Caribbean and Mexico with 43.5 percent of the Lions being women. He says the lowest is Europe with 20.7 percent and Canada is at 28.2 percent just ahead of the USA which stands at 28 percent so we still have a long way to go the catch up with these other geographical areas.
Champigny presented membership growth pins to Andy Wasylciw and Monica Lone for bringing new members into the Flin Flon Club.
