Dear fellow lions
This lionistic year is half completed. It is my pleasure to keep you
apprised of our achievements.
As far as projects go, the numbers may not be impressive.
Though few, they have been large scale and unique ones. Our blood
donation camps (509 units) and 100 trees planted
at AMET UNIVERSITY and the Carbon Seminar respectively speak not only
of volumes but of rich in quality. For these projects our members from
AMET UNIVERSITY, Lions Karikalan, Ln.Balasubramanian and Mr.Jaffer Hussein
and our dear Leo members to be thanked, as they have shown remarkable
initiative, organizing skill and dedication. We also conducted a mega
Eye & Dental camp for 1200 students @ Rani Meyyammai
Lady Girls Hr. Sec. School, Adyar.
A noteworthy feature of this lionistic year has been
our “Go green” effort. Right from installation, all our communication
has been paperless, even from the customary invitations to major events.
Keeping that in view, we are happy to launch our exclusive website on
our club’s Charter Nite and our club’s Bulletin ‘Amongst
Us’ the present issue and the future ones will also feature under
this. Thanks are due to the website team: Lion A.S.Subramanian, Lion V.M.
Chandrasekhar, Lion Sasikala Ashok and Ln.A.R.Krishnan for enabling this
landmark event to take place and of course and to Lion.Selvaraj, who sponsored
for creating this website and to Lion B.Shrinivas of T.Nagar Club for
designing the website for our club.
We are extremely happy to bring 7 new members into our
fold: Dr.Bhoopal, a familiar face with renewed vigour, Mr.Prasad, Mr.Navin,
Mr.Kannan, Mr.Subash Chandra Bose , Mr.Muruganandham and Mr.Melito. The
credit goes to our past president PMJF LN.V.Dhanraj for bringing in 5
new members. .
I am indeed proud to inform that our subscription collection
for this year neared 100% even as early as January - a rare acheivement
made possible by the tireless efforts of our Treasurer, Lion Poornima,
whose promptness in Accounts matters is to be acclaimed.
I sincerely thank my principal team members, the Board
members, the ZC, RC and the District for their support to my Presidentship.
