Lions all,

It is with great sadness that I must share that Indiana Lions' Past International President passed away Saturday afternoon, May 30th.  He had been hospitalized since may 24th after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Please offer your prayers for PIP Wayne's wife, Linda, and their family.  This has been a very difficult time for all of them.  Out of consideration for the family, the decision was made not to share this news until today, and try to give the family some time to mourn in private.

I would like to announce the following for 2020-2021 for the Ohio Lions:

  • Council Chairperson: DG Kenny Schuck
  • Vice Council Chairperson: DGe John Davis (OH1)
  • Chaplains: DGe Carol Snyder (OH4) and DGe Terry Snyder (OH3)

Congratulations to them!  The Ohio Lions are going to be in great hands next year.

Ohio Lions State Convention Cancelled - New Celebration Planned for Sept 5th

Ohio Lions,

It is with a heavy heart that we write to let you know that the May State Convention has been cancelled. While this comes as no big surprise to you with the concerns of the Covid-19 virus, we are still very disappointed to cancel.

Lion Betty Coffey, widow of PIP Jim Coffey, passed away Friday, April 10th. She was a wonderful 1st Lady to MD-13 and the world as she served alongside PIP Jim. She was a member of the Toronto Lions Club. Lion Betty was a great mentor to all, always with a smile and a willing interest in everything that was going on with the Ohio Lions. She will be missed.

Her obituary is attached. Or go to:

Please keep Betty’s family in your thoughts and prayers.
