PDG Noah Speer gave a brief synopsis of the District Centennial float that was entered in the annual Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo Parade last Saturday, March 4rth. The District had 14 people on the float including Lions, Leos and handicapped youth. The float will be available to District Clubs for rental in coming months. PDG Speer then gave an interesting presentation on “What do other Lions Clubs know” and based on his extensive travels in the United States and abroad visiting various Lions Clubs and learning about their unique activities. In recent months he and his wife Pat traveled to Southeast Asia and the Southern Pacific always being welcomed by Lions Clubs and helped in situations of national strikes, floods, and other situations requiring local assistance. He encouraged members to make an effort to visit other Clubs during travels at home or abroad.
