The Magrath Lions held an induction/dinner meeting for new Lions Club members on Thu 10 Mar 2011 7pm at the home of Lion E Olsen.

Congratulations to all. Lion Roger reported that all new members have been updated onto the Lions Club International website.
In Mar 2011 the Lions provided a letter of support to the Diamond Willow Lodge to help install a Gazebo and Outdoor Fitness Equipment in the park south of the Diamond Willow later this year. April Lions Club events include coordination of the Town of Magrath Annual Food Drive (week ending Sat 16th Apr 2011), working the Lethbridge Casino fundraiser (on Tue/Wed 19/20 Apr 2011) to support funding for our new playground project at the Magrath Fishpond. Our April meeting is traditionally the time for annual elections for next years executive. Some discussion regarding a more regular rotatation of club officer positions were considered (ie that each position would automatically lead to next eg being asked to serve as president after completing vice president duties. To be raised at future meeting.
Lion Roger to email all with schedule for casino assignments (via Lion Lawrence).
New Lion Deana reported on communications with a student teacher at the Magrath School who is also a Rotary club member from Lethbridge. They and we are interested in supporting and starting youth programs at the Magrath School. They require support from local service clubs to initiate any such programs.
