Lion President Ervin then introduced guest speaker Wayne Bergeron, District 2-S2 Alert Chairman and Gulf Coast Regional Coordinator for Community Action Task Force. He was accompanied by Community Action Teams Board Member Hugh Jones. Both explained the mission of Community Action Teams and the promotional materials that are available for our use in promoting their mission at our community events and also at schools, community organizations, etc. The goal of the Task Force is to act as a local force multiplier with the objective of seeking ongoing partnerships in the public and private sectors. The Task Force is working to develop short and long-term strategies to subsidize year-round support for shelters, food banks, and clothing needs in emergency response situations. TBLC has previously used some of the Task Force’s promotional material at the April 1-3 German Heritage Festival to help explain to potential new members our involvement in the greater Tomball Community.
