inComing president’s message

As your new incoming president of LPCCI for 2016-2017I would like to thank you for this opportunity to serve.   I’m a fairly new member since I recently joined the  Embarcadero Lions Club in 2013.  It was in 2014 when I became a trustee for LPCCI. What many of you may not know is I’ve been raising puppies since 1993, and I am  currently raising number 18. Little did I know that even with this deep passion for raising puppies, I had another passion for letting others know how these four-legged  miracles could change others’ lives.

Over this past year with Rex (Matriculated May 13, 2016) and Kale, my current puppy, we have made over 60 presentations together. These presentations have been for the Lions, Leo, Rotary, and Kiwanis Clubs, Senior Living Residents, Boy and Girl Scout Clubs, Schools, Veterans Groups, etc.
Let’s all embrace these opportunities in this new LPCCI year. I would like to see more trustees make more monthly donations within our ranks. Wondering how you could becLife Member? Reach out to your Leo Clubs for future puppy raisers for their high school senior projects. Attend and promote LPCCI at cabinet meetings, conventions and other events.  Invite puppy raisers and graduates to assist with the presentations.  Strive for  Cabinet status in all districts within your reach and become your District Trustee.
I will send out information on your local CCI chapters so they become part of our outreach. Continue to remind our fellow Lions of puppy raising opportunities.  Last but not least, participate in a DogFest Walk n’ Roll event near you by setting up a LPCCI booth or bgetting an LPCCI or Lions Club team organized.

LPCCI has made a commitment to raise $150,000 for our newest training center in Irving, Texas.  Help us complete our commitment in raising funds for the South Central Team Lodge Family Room, The Lions Den.
Finally, but first and foremost, have fun. The enthusiasm you generate is infectious.  Remember, there is a very special person waiting for a very special dog to love them, work for them, and be their confidant and best friend.

The first phase of construction of the new campus was completed in October. This facility allows Canine Companions the space to train and place up to 30 assistance dogs each year. Phase two of the construction, which will be completed in 2016/2017 based on fundraising results, will increase the training center’s capacity to 60 teams per year.

The training center is already helping with the recruitment of volunteer puppy raisers and applicants in Texas, including more military veterans through The Wounded Veterans Initiative™.
Thanks to over three years of hard work and an impactful partnership between Canine Companions for Independence® and Baylor, Scott & White Health, the first Team Training, graduation, and puppy matriculation were held in November of 2015 at the new Canine Companions at Baylor, Scott & White Health — Kinkeade Campus.

A special thank you to Baylor, Scott & White Health and the Honorable Judge Ed Kinkeade for making Canine Companions’ sixth training center a reality and for a truly Texas-sized grand opening! A whirlwind of events helped to celebrate the opening:
