Good news from 9NW! In spite of the fact that we don’t have an official District Governor this coming year, a group of experienced PDG’s have formed a new task force to serve our clubs. This Editor is proud to be one of them! Naturally, since this is a new situation for everyone, it will take some time before it all clicks together but we are ready to follow the classic Lions motto, WE SERVE!
In other good news we are pleased to announce that PCC Terry Durham (above) from Cedar Rapids has joined our 9NW task force as our “Guiding Lion” since we don’t have a DG this year. Lion Terry’s leadership abilities and experience will be a great asset to our district the next 6 months. We wish him welcome!
9NW District Convention will be March 31st in the evening and all virtual.

PDG Roger Curtis is on our task force as well, having put in a yeoman’s job in the past and very difficult year. Please give this man a break and let him catch up with his own life for a little while. The rest of us will just have to get the job done for now. Give us a try!
