A Message from the District Governor


On behalf of my wife Gracie and my family, We would like to extend 

Happy New Year wishes to you and your families. May 2016 bless you with

Prosperity, Health and Joy as we continue to serve in our communities. 



The 2nd Cabinet meeting went on as scheduled on Saturday, October 24, 2015 at the Marine Military Academy in Harlingen, Texas in spite of the bad weather we had on that day. It was an informative and funfilled meeting. 


Lions of District 2-A3 had the opportunity to nominate a Lion to the Texas Hall of Fame. The rules for a Lion to be nominated to the Texas Hall of Fame were on the Texas Lions website at www.texaslions.org.


The next district meeting is the Mid-Winter Conference on January 23rd in Rockport Texas. Please join us for another informative and fun-filled meeting. We will have Lions Clubs International Director Robert Littlefield, PhD and his wife Kathy from Multiple District 5E, Fargo, North Dakota as our guest speakers. I look forward to seeing you there January 23rd. 


District 2-A3 Membership Status as of December 2015





Although our membership figures fluctuate during the year, I have good news—current membership stands at 1,214, a plus 5 in membership. The district membership goal for 2015-16 is 1,250. Our Top 5 Clubs who are “Fishing for Lions” are Mission Sunset (10), Mission (5), Kingsville (5), Aransas Pass (3), and Mercedes (3).


New members provide clubs with fresh ideas, new projects

and additional ways to make a difference in the community.

Lions, with your help, we can retain and re”Member” our Clubs,

charter new clubs and reach our district membership goal. ​​

DG Juan Lopez & Lion Gracie Lopez

DISTRICT 2-A3


Lions of District 2-A3 are proud to be a part of the rich history in Texas for close to 100 years. Our commitment to our community, state and the world is our legacy.


Founded in Chicago, Illinois, USA in 1917 by Melvin Jones and others, Lions Clubs International has grown dramatically over the years. Lions are recognized worldwide for their services to the blind and the visually impaired. This service began when Helen Keller challenged the Lions to become her "Knights of the blind in the crusade against darkness" during the association's 1925 International Convention. The association is both non-political and non-sectarian.  


DEDICATION

I dedicate this year to my wife Gracie, my children, their spouses, 

my grandchildren and my mother Adela for their unending support

to my involvement in the Lions Clubs Organization.


To my second family, the Lions of District 2-A3, who day in and day
out serve in their communities under the banner of Lions Clubs
International and fulfill the motto: “We Serve”.


To the Brownsville Nite Lions Club, where my journey began as a

Cub and a Lion.


To my home club, the Edinburg Lions Club who have always

supported me in my journey as a District Officer of District 2-A3.


This is also dedicated in remembrance of Robert “Bob”McLeash, Past

District Governor 1970-1971 and former member of the Edinburg Lions Club.


THEME

​My theme for this upcoming year is “Fishing for Lions”.


I believe that if we don’t Fish for Lions on a daily basis, our Clubs and our

Service to our communities will cease to exist. We must not let this happen.


The 2015-16 MD-2 Council of Governors developed a 3 part membership

program built upon three simple principles Recruit, Rebuild and Retain.


The theme of the program “re-Member Texas Clubs will be a Top Priority

in all sixteen districts, including District 2-A3.


Fishing for Lions fits in perfectly with the MD-2 “re-Member Texas Plan as

we the Lions of District 2-A3 make a concerted effort to have positive

membership growth and service in our communities in 2015-2016
