Upcoming Presentation: "Fraud Aimed at Seniors: How to Protect Yourself."

Angela Martin, president of Shepherd’s Staff In-Home Care, will speak to the Francis Scott Key Lions Club on Tuesday 11/25 on “Fraud Aimed at Seniors: How to Protect Yourself.” Since April 2011, Martin has co-owned and operated Shepherd’s Staff In-Home Care, providing non-medical in-home care to elderly clients. The passion for opening this type of business grew out of 10 years’ experience caring for her parents as her mother faced physical and mental decline. In her professional career as a freelance writer, Angela has written and produced educational material for a variety of clients.

Lions District Governor John Parker Image


DG John Parker recently made his official visit to the Francis Scott Key Lions Club and spoke on the international theme to “Strengthen the Pride” and his personal theme urging members to “Be Lion Hearted.”


Lions District Governor John Parker, a member of the Potomac Valley Lions Club, recently made his official visit to the Francis Scott Key Lions Club, reminding members that the international theme urges members this year to "Strength the Pride." Parker, a Lion since 1983, then showed a short video, also titled “Strengthen the Pride,” which showed Lions service projects from around the world.

One way to strengthen the pride is for clubs to participate in the Club Excellence Program and help Lions Clubs International to perform one million acts of charity by January 1, 2017, the organization’s centennial.

He reminded members that there are 1.38 million Lions worldwide, with 360,000 in the North American sector of the United States, Canada, and Mexico. There are currently 2,025 members in District 22W (Carroll, Frederick, Washington, Allegany, and Garrett Counties), and the goal for this year is to gain 230 new members, two branch clubs, and four campus clubs. Parker urged the Lions to carry membership applications with them at all times. He also offered recruitment incentives to spur members to ask others to become Lions.

The District 22W goal for donations to the Lions Clubs International Foundation is $44,000; Parker asked that each club present at least one Melvin Jones Fellow, an honor which represents a minimum $1,000 LCIF donation.

Parker also spoke of Lions charities closer to home, the Lions Vision Research Foundation at the Wilmer Eye Institute at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore and their new projects, and the Lions Youth Foundation, which offers matching grants for Lions youth projects.

He also spoke of the pin representing his term’s theme, “Be Lion Hearted,” and how it was developed. It is believed to be one of the first district governor pins to have the theme shown in Braille as well as English.

In conclusion, Parkersaid, “Let’s all work together” to further the charitable works of Lionism in our community.
