Message from President Ellen McCall

For any garden to flourish you must start by planting seeds. Then, as the gardener, you nourish them to become strong plants that can withstand the challenges it takes to grow.

Our club is like a garden. It began with an idea that was nourished to become the club that we have today. If we each plant a seed or idea with everyone we meet, we can continue to grow our club. How? By sharing with others. Tell them what we do to serve others in the community and then invite them to join us and be part of our garden that provides a harvest of community service.

As your President this year, I encourage you to help me plant new seeds for growth and nourish our new members by involving them in all of the Lion’s activities. If each of us shares over the next year why we became a member with friends, family, business associates, I am sure we will see growth in the Franklin Lions Club.

I would like to ask that we continue with the theme Lion Pete had last year, “Just Ask”, with the addition of mine, “Plant a Seed”. Planting and nourishing we can continue to be a strong club that others want to be part of.
