This week we are seeing firsthand the amazing Christmas Spirit and dedication to our motto “We Serve” as the District 19H-1 Flood Relief Fund passed $100,000. These funds are busy at work supplying urgent humanitarian items to the many in Whatcom County who have lost so much following two major and devastating flood events. I want to give a special “thank-you” to Everson President Amy Ramstread who monitors the daily needs and to three amazing Treasurers who are making sure all funds are accounted for and administered properly: Bellingham Central Lion Bruce Ayers, Everson Lion Ron Bruland and Lynden Lion Nancy Kuelz. They are doing a fantastic job of managing the funds.
Please remember all the Lions and volunteers who are providing flood relief in a way that makes us all very proud to be part of one of the world’s greatest service organizations.
