MD 31 Council of Governors:
We have been requested to support legislation to issue a commemorative coin. Support involves requesting Lions in our districts to contact their federal lawmakers and ask the lawmakers to co-sponsor the “Lions Clubs International Century of Service Commemorative Coin Act. Passage of this legislation depends on securing 290 co-sponsors in the U.S. House of Representatives and 67 co-sponsors in the U.S. Senate. If you are in favor of doing this at a Multiple District level, please let me know and I will ask Lions Bennie Pugh and Carlton Metts to put out an email with the information contained in the attached letter. If you would like to support the plan on a district level, feel free to include the letter in your district newsletters and contact your clubs requesting them to write or call their lawmakers!
Complete details and information addressing questions you and your members may have is available at LCI’s website: http://www.lionsclubs.org/coin/.
