Local resident and Vader Lions Club member Kathy Crawford has been named the governor for District 19G, and has been described as the first club member from South Lewis County to do so.
Installed as governor during the Lions International Convention in British Columbia on July 1, Crawford said she is looking forward to meeting with area clubs and helping them achieve the goals for their communities.
“I’m really excited,” she said. “I hope that what I do will make a difference.”
As governor, Crawford said she will be expected to oversee administration of the clubs in her region, which spans as far north as Clearwater, as far west as Aberdeen, as far South as Vancouver, and as far east as Camas. She said she will be overseeing membership reports, the collection of dues and ensure she is able to visit personally with the dozens of clubs in the area.
Prior to being elected governor, Crawford had previously served as Leadership Chair (2009-2012), Membership Chair (2006-2009), and LEMPRR Team Facilitator (2007-2008) at the district level, and indicated her role as governor is not expected to impede her from being involved with Vader Lions Club activities.
Lion Club International is a philanthropic, community-based organization with clubs in more than 200 countries worldwide and more than 1.3 million members.
