There were 16 students there for the first meeting. There were many other Lions that were also present at the first meeting. The Greenville Lions will be sponsoring the new Leo’s club.

Midland Lions Honor PDG Andy Watson

This month we honor PDG Lion Andy Watson as our Midland Lion of the Month. He joined the Lions Club in February of 1969. He was sponsored by Lion Henry Gray and in turn, sponsored the

memberships of Lions Jim Ostler and Scott Ware. Lion Andy held all the offices within the local club except for Tail Twister. He served as President of the Midland Lions Club in 1976. He was, and still is, active on various committees and chairmanships including Eye Bank, Mints and Eye Glass Collection. Lion Andy was District Governor for the fiscal year 19861987. Through the years he has served as Chairman of District Convention committees, District Cabinet, Secretary of Lions Foundation, and the Eye Bank Program and is the Lions representative on the Advisory Board for the Diabetes Center. In 1996 Lion Andy was honored with the most prestigious State Lion Award‐‐the S. A. Dodge Award for distinguished service. Lion Andy shared a favorite memory from his days of traveling to different clubs to speak about the Eye Bank. On one occasion he was preparing to speak at a meeting of the Weidman Lions Club. The projector was set up and everything ready when the city fire alarm went off! All the members, but one, jumped up and left! They were all volunteer fireman. Lion Andy did not leave and a couple of hours later they returned and he went on to present his Eye Bank Program. That is a great example of the Lions motto “We Serve”. Thank you Lion Andy for your 41 years of Service!
