As the 2018-2019 President of LPCCI last year, I set my goals to continue sharing the amazing wFinal Newsletter page2 image2ork that Lions Clubs have done to support the Lions Project throughout the United States creating more awareness and financial growth for Canine Companions for Independence.

Last year we were successful in gaining new Lions Clubs as LPCCI members, new trustees and many new donors. All six regions of Canine Companions are more aware of the great work Lions across the United States are doing to support Canine Companions.

Part way through my presidency last year, one of my Vice Presidents asked if I would continue as president of LPCCI for the 2019-2020 year. After much consideration, I knew my work wasn’t finished and I agreed to continue this great journey of growth and be president an additional year. During my first term I thoroughly enjoyed learning new things, meeting new people and teaching Lions from many different places the great support LPCCI gives Canine Companions.

On July 1, 2019 I started my second term as president and can’t wait to continue on this journey of growth for LPCCI. One of my goals for LPCCI this year is to attend a few Lions Conventions to create more awareness of LPCCI in states that we don’t have as
much Lions support. Some of these include Kentucky, Iowa, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, North Dakota and Missouri. Another goal is encouraging my fellow Lions that I meet along the way at these state conventions to become trustees for LPCCI. These trustees will help engage more Lions and gain more support for Canine Companions.

I’m excited to see all the wonderful ways LPCCI will serve Canine Companions during this year and I am even more excited to have you join me along the way.
Respectfully, Lion Teresa J. Hart, LPCCI President
