Dear Lions & Friends,

I am writing to ask for your help with our upcoming Mid-Winter Conference to be held on February 23rd - 25th at the Sheraton Hotel in Springfield.  This year, our guest speaker is Judge Anthony Paradiso, a first year International Director from Rockville Centre, New York.. 

Each year we put together an informative Program Book for the conference with income generating ads. The proceeds from this book pay for all the little extras which make the weekend a success, and also allows us to keep the meal prices down. We are asking your club to help fund this year’s conference by doing two things; first, purchase an ad for your club in the Program Book, and second, solicit ads from businesses in your community or connections you may have.

We’re continuing the rewards!! If you sell $1,000 in ads, your Midwinter Package

(single or double) is free!!  That’s right, we said free!! 

Included with this letter is the ad form. Ads can be submitted in printed form or in a digital format which can be easily emailed directly to me at  If  your club needs help with the ad, just send me what you want to say in the ad and I will create an attractive ad for you or the business.

Please support our Mid-Winter Conference by helping with Program Book ads and, by all means, come to the Conference and have some fun!

Yours in Lionism,

Dennis M. Fountain, CC -  Midwinter Program Book Chair
