Thank you for being a Lion. Your district would like to send a “Ray of Sunshine and Joy” to our members who are sick, in the hospital, not feeling well mentally and/or physically. Don’t forget we also want to acknowledge those who are now well. And, we want to send messages of support and condolences on the passing of a Lion.  We care. Please email sunshine@lions4c4.org so we can extend a warm hello and hi.  The Sunshine Message can be sent Privately as well as announced to the District via The Thread, your choice.  We deeply appreciate each and everyone’s service. – Lion Alison Wilson
