District 18-L Spouse Recognition

A recognition program for a deserving spouse in your Lions Club or associated with your local Lions Club was established in District 18-E in 2005. This recognition program will be continued in District 18-L. Each Lions Club may nominate a spouse in their club or someone who is associated with their club, who assists in a project or projects, devoting time and effort for fund raising or community improvement.

A spouse in your club who may or may not be a Lion but has given of themselves beyond the call of duty, such as assisting in projects in your club or in the community that entails worth through Lionism. This is a special recognition. There is always that special spouse who deserves and has contributed considerably over the past year or years, maybe sometimes without a “Thank You” for the extra effort.

We need the cooperation from each club to make it a success. Each club should send a nomination letter with the name, address, and information about the individual with some detailed examples of what and how they have given to your club.

Send your nomination letter to the District Governor and Committee Chair by January 15th of each year for acceptance. The District Governor will make the presentation at the annual District Convention. If the selected nominee or their designated recipient is not able to attend the District Convention, then the District Governor will make the presentation at a club meeting or at another appropriate time and place.
