What a wonderful Winter Conference weekend. We started with a Beach Bag packing of 1,322 bags for the Education Foundation of Virginia Public Schools followed by dinner at Dockside. Joining us for the weekend was International Director, Marie Cunning and traveling companion, Past Council Chair, Rose Marie Gabriel, both from Phenix, Arizona. They spoke, taught, inspired, encouraged and entertained us in classes and meetings through a freezing weekend. They also participated in an environmental clean up on frigid Friday morning. They brought game!!
At the banquet on Sat evening, ID Marie officially inducted the members of a newly charted Lions Club, the SEVA Peninsula Asian American Lions. It is a special honor to be inducted by a sitting ID. ID Marie is one of only 4 sitting International Directors out of 33 worldwide. We were very proud and honored to have her participate in our convention. She warmed our hearts on a cold weekend and she inspired us to renew and continue our mission of service. We thank our District Governor, Lion Homer Cook, for his efforts and for bringing her to us.

Thalia is a very busy Lions Club. On Wednesday evening before our club meeting, three of our members prepared a dinner meal for 25 children picked up from Cooke Elementary school. These children are taken to the Methodist Church at the Oceanfront, given activities and tutoring time before their dinner is served at 5pm. All of these children are in need.
And, by the way, these three dedicated members made it to our club meeting on time!!

Thalia Lions hosted the Beach Bag Project on Oct. 5th at Corporate Landing Middle School. There were 87 volunteers from all the Virginia Beach Lions Clubs, Broad Bay Ladies Golf Assoc., the Navy, Virginia Beach Christian Church and other friends. In about 2 hours, the volunteers packed 2,500 bags of food purchased through a grant of $10,000 from the Lions Charity Foundation of Southeastern Virginia.

At this time 46% of the students in the V.B. school system are on free or reduced lunch.

These bags of food will be given to many of those students to take home over weekends and long holidays.

Our purpose is clear, our mission is ongoing, our hearts of service are fed as well as these children.
