A special event happened at the Thurmont Lions Club Membership meeting on July 12. Region III Chair Wendy Dunn introduced District Governor (DG) Jeremy Bair as the 2023-2024 District Governor for District 22W. DG Jeremy Bair made his first official visit to the Thurmont Lions Club.
DG Jeremy is perfect for this position. He is a member of the Greater Carroll Lions Club and has held many positions, received many awards, attended numerous leadership institutes, a Melvin Jones Fellow, and so on. His job is to oversee the clubs and the functions of District 22-W. This will keep DG Jeremy Bair busy since the District covers 53 clubs in Carroll, Frederick, Washington, and Allegany counties.
DG Bair’s chosen theme, “The Promise of Tomorrow,” is appropriate for the positive future he sees for District 22W. His hope is to increase the membership and, thereby, better serve those in need. Another hope for the District is to purchase a mobile screening van and conduct basic health and vision screenings in the four counties.
So, whether you buy the scrumptious Thurmont Lions Club homemade chocolate candy bars or purchase the famous Emmitsburg Lions Club BBQ chicken, remember that all the proceeds are returned to the community.
