Caywood conference

The Roy W. Caywood Sr. Kentucky Lions Leadership Conference will bring together Lions from both districts in Kentucky for a fun-filled day of learning at Lions Camp Crescendo on October 8th 2022. Participants will develop strategies for being an effective leader, discuss service projects that have real world applications, and hone in on how to recruit new members to their clubs. By delivering approachable content in a relaxed setting, the aim is to structure the two-way dialogue between Lions that transforms social conversation into action.

The Kentucky Lions that have been involved in planning the Caywood Conference are: Paul Witten, Verna Sharp, Jimmy Tipton, Noel Hardwick, David Moose, Judy Moose, Randy Morris, Steve Pedersen, Bill Pater, Michael Frye, April Rudman, Chuck Carlson, Tony Bishop, Karen Nitschke, Duane Kiser, Wendy Kiser, Hanna Moore, Tom Matney, Brett Rosenblum

On December 10, 2021 in Western Kentucky, an EF-4 Tornado wreaked havoc across the towns of Mayfield, Bremen, Dawson Springs, Princeton, and Bowling Green. The cleanup and recovery efforts are far from over. Mayfield LC is coordinating the tornado relief efforts.

On July 28, 2022 multiple counties in Eastern Kentucky experienced catastrophic flash flooding as a result of heavy rain that led to landslides and mudslides. The Lions Clubs in the affected communities are Jackson LC, Hindman LC, Whitesburg LC, Neon Community LC, Booneville LC, Hazard LC, and Pikeville LC.

When a humanitarian crisis of this magnitude strikes, we, as Lions, are ready to help. Right beside us is Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF), our global foundation. LCIF quickly responded and awarded Emergency grant funding to allow Lions in the affected communities to respond to urgent needs of the victims.

We are grateful for the outpouring of messages and for your generous donations that will help both of our Districts, 43K and 43Y during this long road to recovery in the weeks, months, and years to come.

As Lions, We Serve.

Please contact MD43 if your Multiple District, Lions Club or as an individual want to donate goods, services, or labor.
