1 January 2017 Edition 8 Volume 6 I am Lion Dan Jones. I was raised on a 320 acre dairy farm in northeastern Jackson County at a time when, as many of us remember, it was all about labor. I spent a large part of my life farming that same ground. I married my wife Terri in 1980 and we have two children; our daughter Katie, a supervisor with the Department of Revenue in St. Paul and a son Kevin, the future products manger at AGCO Corp in Jackson. Kevin has given us two granddaughters, Mya and Jordyn, 3 and 1 years old. It s amazing how the time flys by when you're simply not paying attention. After retiring to Windom, I have worked as a control board operator at a startup ethanol plant in Heron Lake and in petroleum sales for a Windom area cooperative thereafter. I have also been involved as the board chairman of WASC, a Windom food shelf, since it's inception six years ago. I joined the Windom Lions, not only as a way to meet new people in an unfamiliar town, but mainly to satisfy a desire to help others, which I see as the main reason we are on this Earth. While there are other avenues to helping someone else, I believe there are none any better than Lions International is and I'm incredibly proud to be involved with all of you and this fabulous organization. After holding various offices within the Windom Lions, I had agreed to join the 5M3. leadership team. With the experiences that I've had in Lions, I sense that now is the right time to seek the nomination for District Governor of District 5M3. My goal is to bring all of our clubs together into an enhanced focus toward service to others and increase the satisfaction that being a Lion supplies. My name is 2nd VDG Richard Kelly. I was born in Jackson MN. Went to Jackson High School. I have been in Lions for 10 years. I have been a recipient of a Helen Keller award and a Melvin Jones Award. Also, I have been the Jackson Club President, Zone Chair and now 2nd VDG. I live in Jackson MN. I'm mostly part retired but do find the time to help a friend in his restaurant. I have a few hobbies, love to golf and ride my 99 Road King. LCIF is in need of funding so IF EVERY Lions Club in the District (43) donate at least $50.00 to LCIF before June 30, 2017, DG Larry will donate $500.00!

4 What is the Parade of Green? Why does my Lions Club need to give to this? This is an annual event done at every Mid Winter Convention in our Multiple (all 12 of them).

It is hard to believe that we are almost halfway through this Lions year already. With the start of the new year it is a great time to look back on what has happened in our club this year. We as a district have stopped losing Lions and have grown for the second year in a row! How are you coming on the goals that you set ( I hope ) for this year? The good news is that there are still six months to make this a great year for your club! Have you started a new project or two? New projects can raise your club s stature and visibility in your community. Perhaps you will hear that your Lions club is the best and most active club in town! When we are very active with projects, that our community sees as being important to them, we will find that people want to become a member so they can help us with our efforts. I think people have a need to help others, and this need can be fulfilled by being a Lion in a club that has great projects, enthusiasm, and a feeling of being part of the family of Lions. What are the new projects that we do? Have you completed the four centennial service challenges for this year? How about a Legacy project for your community? I had the honor to give one club two Legacy banner patches for last year. What other projects? I know of one Lions club that has a family bingo one Sunday afternoon a month because there is very little to bring people together in their town. Another club had an anniversary thank you dinner and invited the whole town to come at no charge! Get together and have a jam session on what services we would like to see happen in our community. Have you got a club website? You can do that with Lions e-clubhouse website. Need a short program for your next meeting? Take a look at the Lions International website for audios & videos or contact one of our District chairpersons for a presentation. There are so many things we can do, we need to make a plan so we get it done! Remember Benjamin Franklin said, The man who does things makes many mistakes, but he never makes the biggest mistake of all--doing nothing. Late breaking news! I just received an from Brian Sheehan asking for time at our Mid-Winter to seek support for running for the 3rd International Vice President's position at the International convention to be held in Las Vegas in 2018!!! I think he would be a great International President, and I think it would be AWESOME if he were to be elected! REMINDER: We still need an Extra Ordinary Lion from your club. You can send a picture and a bio to Lion Kelly. You mail it to Richard Kelly at 825 Park St, Jackson MN or you can it to This can be any Lion past or present to be used at Mid Winter Convention in Fairmont February 17-19, The Redwood Falls Lions Club were publicized for their Nearly Naked 5K on page 13 and Lake Benton Lions for celebrating their 50 Years of Service as a Lions Club on page 43.

7 If you're a Lion that has been quietly nurturing a desire to do more in your Lions career, to make a bigger difference in your community or simply to become a better person, the MD5M Lions Leadership Institute is exactly what you ve needed. This event is the perfect place to strengthen the skills you already possess and begin to create the new ones that you'll want going forward. The instructors are so very knowledgeable, some of the most pleasant folks you could want to meet and between them and the other students you'll make real friendships that last for years to come. This event is being held on this next March 30 to April 2 in Mahnomen, MN, and I believe there are a couple of spots still open for it. If this has tweaked your interest at all, contact DG Larry at for more information, or an application. It may well be your best decision of the New Year, and all of those beyond. As of this writing it's just two weeks until Christmas! It s a wonderful holiday with an extra special meaning to be a Lion. For this is the season of giving, in honor of the greatest gift of all, and giving is certainly what the Lions are all about. So, while you re enjoying the holiday with family and friends remember the gift of service you've offered to others, by being a Lion. Have a very Merry Christmas and a very prosperous New Year! The Madelia Lions celebrated their Club's 25th anniversary on December 6th. There were 8 members of the New Ulm Lions, their sponsoring Club, in attendance as well as DG Larry. A delicious meal was served, DG Larry talked about some of the past history of Lions, and the Madelia Lions had printed up a list of their Club activities and projects for all to see. The Club received a Centennial Service Banner Patch. Everyone had a great time, however, no photos were taken. Morgan Lions Club Outstanding Lions Years- Back row: Lion Dave Nelson (10), Lion Ralph Heiling (20), Lion Galen Engholm (30), Lion Lynn Hillesheim (15).

9 MINNESOTA LIONS DIABETES FOUNDATION CALENDAR Support your Lions with the purchase of this limited edition 2017 Lion Centennial Calendar $10 Each The Minnesota Diabetes Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with diabetes by funding research to cure diabetes, providing education and sponsoring preventive health activities. CONTACT: Lion Mary Snobl Lion Bob Schirlinger Greetings and Merry Christmas from 5M3 Lions KidSight, KidSight is a nationwide program to safeguard the vision of children ages 6 months through 6 years with a mission to ensure that eye screening and follow-up care is given to all children because every child deserves to learn and see the world clearly. Minnesota KidSight will be placing the order for our Welch Allyn Spot Vision Screening Systems in January 2017 and we should receive our 3 systems in late January or early February. I hope to have the systems by our midwinter convention so that we can do some demos and training at the convention. We should be able to start scheduling screening events shortly after that. In the meantime, I have been traveling and giving KidSight briefings/presentations at zone and club meetings to spread the word about what the program is and how we hope it will work. I have presented at 5 zone meetings and 8 clubs so far and have 1 more club scheduled before the holidays. If your club would like to receive a KidSight presentation, please contact me and we will get it scheduled. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those clubs that have already donated to the 5M3 KidSight Program. These funds will be critical to sustaining the KidSight Program within the district. If your club would like to donate to this worthy cause, make the check payable to 5M3 Lions and put KidSight in the memo field and mail it to me as the 5M3 KidSight Chairman or put it in the Parade of Green at our Mid Winter Convention.

New Member Sponsor Club Todd Erp Lion Gerry Gingles Canby Mike Wagner Lion Janette Pidde Comfrey Phil Goetstouwes Lion Robert Krinke Lamberton Laura Bast Beth Oslund Helen Keller Sight Awards In 1925, when Lions International was only seven years old, the legendary Helen Keller spoke to Lions members at their annual convention and challenged them to become knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness. That speech set the Lions course for their efforts in sight preservation. Looking at all that Helen Keller has accomplished, it is small wonder that the Lions are inspired by this exceptional woman and quite natural that the Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation developed the Helen Keller Sight Award as a tribute to her. Established in 1992, more than 4,900 Helen Keller Awards have now been bestowed on deserving recipients who have distinguished themselves on behalf of sight. The awards are an excellent way to honor a Lion, Lioness, non-lion individual, business, or organization. The award recipient receives a beautiful plaque and pin, and the recipient s name is displayed on a Helen Keller board in the University of Minnesota s Eye Clinic. PDG s LeRoy and Vickie are available to assist you with confirming your club s Helen Keller Sight Award balance, in ordering and in presenting the awards. Please consider honoring an individual, a group or a business that has supported your club by presenting them a Helen Keller Sight Award. If you have any questions about or are looking for suggestions on presenting Helen Keller awards, please contact PDG LeRoy or Vickie. Community Sight Service Projects For over 90 years, Lions have been supporting sight conservation efforts and aiding those with visual impairments. Projects such as Springfield Area Springfield Area Holden Salfer Lion Dean Fischer Wabasso used eyewear collection and the creation of Lions eye banks have received the majority of the accolades. WE are looking to hear about your club s efforts. If your club has a project or a fundraiser dedicated towards vision, we want to hear about it. We would like to share your stories and ideas with the rest of 5M-3. Amazon Amazon Smile If you make purchases on Amazon or Amazon Prime, you now have a great way to make a contribution to the Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation when using these on-line services. Just log into your Amazon account and enter Amazon Smile into the search bar. From there, you will be given the opportunity to register your charity of choice. Just type in Minnesota Lions Vision Foundation and you ll be able to link the Foundation to your Amazon account. The MLVF will receive a contribution equaling 0.5% of your purchase. Sign up and have your family and friends do the same. It s a perfect way to give a little bit extra. Please have your club or zone schedule one of us for a visit. We look forward to seeing you all at the Mid-Winter in Fairmont. Bring your used eyewear to drop off Vision booth! We ll have some great information to share with you. Thank you Lions, Lioness of 5M-3 for truly being Knights of the Blind. Vickie Radloff LeRoy Levorson
