A message from Lion Eleanor A. MINNES, A-711 Peace Poster Chair 2022-2023
I am the chairperson this year and would like to invite all clubs in the district to consider sponsoring middle school-aged students, ages 11-13 to participate.
Submissions need to be sent to me by October 31 so I can forward them to DG Ferdy by November 15. He should be notified of the club’s participation prior to this.
Hoping to make this a success:
