May 19-20, 2017  SanAntonio, Texas

DGE Phyllis Elsey installs, PCC, PDG Ray White as the 2017 into the 2107 Texas Lions Hall of Fame 

Lion Leaders,

 Attached is some info for the Tri State Fair Calf Scramble Scholarship program that our District adopted as a new project.  I will be getting a video out to you guys to show your clubs, explaining more about the program, as I do not have enough time to get to all the clubs before the fair in September. 

 I am needing help getting this info into the hands of 4-H and FFA members who are the participants and recipients, so if you know any please pass this on.  Your local Ag teacher and County Extension agents are great contacts to get this info to as well.  These individuals are great new member prospects.  What a great sales pitch to approach them saying we Lions are supporting a program that benefits them and the kids they work with. 

 I am very excited about this project and please ask me any questions and give any feedback I want this to be good for all involved. 

 We would gladly accept any donations to the scholarship as well.

 Hello all,
This is Kevin Cox with the Amarillo Downtown Lions Club. I am emailing regarding the upcoming fair parade. I think it would be really cool to have a lot of members and different clubs in the district to attend and be a part of the parade. We already have a spot reserved, just don't know where that is yet. This is a free advertising opportunity for the lions club, especially if we get a lot of members to join. If you don't think you can walk it, we will have a trailer. We can always add to that if needed.
There will be a picnic afterwards so please let us know if your club wants to join and about how many so we can have an idea and plan. Feel free to bring anything you want, contributions to help at the picnic are always welcome. 😊
Email me or text or call with questions or ideas. 806-670-3380
Thanks so much!

2017- 2018



 I hope everyone had a great Holiday!  2018 is going to be a great year for Lions.  Our second century of service will be epic.  It is amazing what the clubs in District 2T1 are doing for their communities.  Our motto, “WE SERVE”, is alive and well in the Panhandle.

 We have a new club in Amarillo, the AMARILLO EVENING CENTENNIAL CLUB!  They have 21 charter members, they meet twice a month and one of those meetings is a service project.  In fact, they just finished cooking and serving a meal to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.  How absolutely wonderful is that.  We will be having a Charter Night sometime in March and all the clubs in the District will be invited to welcome and support them.

 Our MID-WINTER CONFERENCE was a 2 day meeting, January 19 and 20, held in Hereford and hosted by the Hereford Lions   Club.  We had a washer toss competition on Friday night with a great BBQ dinner.  There were 50 Lions in attendance.  Everyone   had a great time.  Of course 2 Hereford Lions teams won the competition…..anyone surprised??  Saturday morning we were   served Donuts and coffee.  Now, who doesn’t like donuts!  We had 50 plus Lions at our business meeting.  Lion Jerry Whatley,   Amarillo By Morning Club, auctioned off 4 T-Shirts signed by the sweethearts.  Dumas, Amarillo Downtown, Canyon, and Hereford   out bid everyone to win a T-Shirt for their respective Queens.  All of the money went toward the winners scholarships.  Speaking of   the Queens, we had 10 participates from Amarillo Downtown, Amarillo Lonestar, Borger, Canyon, Dumas Noon,   Hereford,Perryton,  Quitaque, Tulia, and Wellington.  Kirrah Powell, Borger, was crowned the 2017-2018 District 2T1 Queen;   Chloe  Kemp, Canyon, was first runner up; Lonna Rauh, Amarillo Downtown, won Ms Congeniality; and Holly Wilhelm, Dumas   Noon, won the People’s Choice.  Last year’s Queen Lorena Granados, Wellington, was beautiful as ever and represented our   District with such respect and grace.  Lion Beverly Harrison and her committee did an outstanding job organizing, decorating and   taking care of the sweethearts.  I can’t thank them enough. 

 I hope everyone will check out the web-site,
, to see all of the pictures from Friday night and Saturday. 

 Our District 2-T1 Convention will be held in Amarillo, April 20-21 at the Oasis Baptist Church.  There will be a lot more information   to follow, but please mark your calendars with these important dates. 

 I want to thank all the clubs and Lions in the District for your service to your communities….You are what makes our motto…

 “WE SERVE”. .
