My name is Mark Steffens, your 1st Vice President for the Lions Project for Canine Companions for Independence. I have been a volunteer as a Puppy Raiser/Breeder Caretaker with Canine Companions for Independence (CCI) since 1993 and a Lion since 2013. My current puppy in training is Rex who is our 17th puppy that we have raised for this wonderful program!
Since joining the Lions I have become an active member with our club and LPCCI. Now that I’m a trustee I have had the opportunity to go out and visit over 25 Lions Clubs in District 4-C5, attended cabinet meetings, and conventions. Even when I’m doing a presentation for The Rotary Clubs,
Canine Companions for Independence, and Sons in Retirement I always mention LPCCI.
It is very common when I attend events that many of my fellow Lions know my puppies in training better than they know me.
As I tell everyone, it’s my puppies that gave me the opportunity to become LPCCI trustee of the year!
