Over the years, I've been a longshoreman, a landscape designer, manager of a retail farm store and a dairy farmer. I am currently a regional operations manager for an agricultural crop protection and nutrition provider.

19F 1st Vice District Governor Bio 19F 1st Vice District Governor Bio
I was born in Weiser, Idaho, where I attended school and later moved to Lewiston, Idaho in 1995 to attend Lewis-Clark State College. I graduated in 2000 with a bachelor’s degree in History/Political Science.
 
While in college I started working at the Lewiston Tribune writing about people from their beginnings (birth announcements), to their middles (engagement and wedding announcements), and their ends (obituaries). I eventually went on to become a graphic designer at Washington State University College of Agriculture for 11 years. Currently, I am the Program Director for the City of Potlatch Afterschool Program for youth in grades 6-12.
 
In 2011 a mutual friend introduced me to my husband, Philip. Our first date was at Zeppoz Fun Center in Pullman, Washington, where we both agreed to a second date despite our misgivings (his was that I beat him handily at bowling, and mine was that he was wearing a Boise State University shirt). We married in 2014 and live happily with our three dogs and the agreement that we will always disagree on the best NFL team.
 
In my spare time I enjoy reading, crocheting, photography, and about a dozen other crafts/hobbies that I dabble with. Philip and I are also members of the Potlatch Logger Booster Club and can usually be found working concessions at home Logger Football and Volleyball games.

Leader Dogs for the Blind


Leader Dogs for the Blind

Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) and Lions have a long history of supporting guide dogs and the people who need them.

Founded by three Detroit-area Lions Clubs members in 1939, Leader Dogs for the Blind empowers people who are blind, visually impaired or deaf-blind with skills for a lifetime of independent travel, opening doors that may seem to have closed with the loss of sight. Leader Dog programs are crafted to address individual situations and adapt to clients’ changing needs at any point in their lives. Leader Dog’s programs give people the confidence and skills they need to live independent lives. Leader Dogs places approximately 200 dog/client teams every year.

The Lions of Multiple District 11-A2 recently received a Standard grant from LCIF to help Leader Dogs improve their facilities. The US$100,000 grant will support renovation and construction in the training bay area.

Donations can be made here: https://www.leaderdog.org/donate/

LEADER DOG REPORT, Cabinet Meeting, July 25, 2020
This will be a short report as The Leader Dogs in Detroit, Michican are in the same boat as we are as far as this awful virus.
However, they plan to meet with the chairman in August via Zoom which I plan to attend. I will share any new programs, etc. they may have in mind for the New Year 20-21.
I plan, however, to set up a letter explaining the importance of our donations to this program. If each club donates whatever they can even if it is just $29 it would be greatly appreciated. With all of the clubs cooperation we can send them monies that are badly needed.
The Leader Dog Foundation was started in 1939 by three Lions willing and determined to help a blind person to have somewhat of a normal life.
I will promote this by a monthly newsletter to keep the clubs committed to this program.
As I stated before, after August I will know more of the special programs they may offer to interest a club to participant and donate.

MD19 C.A.R.E.


MD19 C.A.R.E.
Haiti
Project Snapshot Name: Community-Managed Girls’ Learning Centers
Location: 20 Rural Communities in central Haiti
Duration: 24 Months (Dec 2021 – Dec 2023)
Funding Requested: $80,000 ($40,000 per year)
CARE Contact: Dana Tseng, Email Address: Dana.tseng@care.org

Background
In Haiti, many children lack access to quality, basic education. And for girls, the problem is even greater. In the Central region of Haiti, the number of girls who complete primary education is shockingly low. In 2018, more than half of school age girls in this region did not complete more than 2.5 years of schooling. This is despite the government’s pledge to strengthen public education and improve teacher training. The main reasons for children (both girls and boys) abandoning school include: parents’ inability to afford school fees; heavy household chores; lack of parental support for children at both school and home. While progress has been made in enrolling girls by the Haiti government, the number of girls who do not enroll in primary school and/or drop-out early is woefully high. The Government of Haiti is committed to strengthening girls’ education and improving opportunities for vocational training. The Ministry of Education has developed a 10-year policy and operational plan to foster collaboration across local, international and government partners geared toward advancing basic education in Haiti. CARE is partnering with the Haiti government in support of this plan to increase girls’ access to education.

Project Summary
Using our decades of experience around the world in girls’ education, CARE is undertaking a new initiative in Haiti. CARE plans to establish community-led and community-managed learning centers for girls ages 10-19 who either dropped out of school or have not had a chance to attend one. Established centers will provide 9- to 12-month accelerated learning courses tailored to the realities of girls in Haiti. The centers will be equipped with learning curriculums based on CARE’s groundbreaking program called Strengthening Opportunities for Adolescents Resilience (SOAR). The centers will enroll primarily girls who were unable to either start or remain at school due to the extreme vulnerability of their parents. These learning centers will be created and managed by already-established village saving and loan associations (VSLAs) in the target communities. These VSLA groups, primarily comprised of women, have been a part of CARE’s long-term approach in Haiti to increasing economic security. For nearly 30 years in over 50 countries around the world, CARE’s VSLA model has proven itself to be a successful, adaptable platform for making transformative change in communities. Through this new initiative, CARE plans to pilot an informal education model in which VSLA groups are the primary drivers and champions. Once established, the model would operate differently than a traditional SOAR program that is fully funded by project resources. Rather, the project will build and connect local resources to set up an informal education that addresses the issues of education among disadvantaged girls in rural areas. Participation in the centers CARE Project Proposal for MD19 Lions Haiti Project Snapshot Name: Community-Managed Girls’ Learning Centers Location: 20 Rural Communities in central Haiti Duration: 24 Months (Dec 2021 – Dec 2023) Funding Requested: $80,000 ($40,000 per year) CARE Contact: Dana Tseng, Dana.tseng@care.org 2 will be based on merit among girls from extremely poor families who never got a chance to go to and/or remain in school and will require a recommendation by a member of a founding VSLA. Courses will be tailored to local realities and needs in order to prepare girls to be confident in their abilities to overcome the adversities and gender social-culture barriers in their societies, and therefore gain the basic skills needed to fulfill their dreams. Courses will be age-sensitive, with a strong emphasis on stimulating and nurturing entrepreneurial spirit among girls. Parents will play a crucial role in the project, which not only will help ensure that impact is sustainable, but also that child-parent relationships are strengthened at home and at school. The centers will support parents to build positive and supportive relationships with their children, while also instilling a culture of promoting girls’ education in the wider community. Courses will be organized in a series of two- to three-hour sessions three times a week. Each center will develop its own schedule based on community needs, with input from VSLA members. Centers will be managed by a committee set up by founding VSLAs in collaboration with their local leaders. Every center will aim to provide two courses per year for a maximum of 25 girls per class. The course will provide these girls a path to either transition them back to formal school or to vocational training to give them skills to start and grow a business. With support from MD19 Lions and other donors, CARE will implement community-managed girls’ centers in 15-20 communities in the Central region of Haiti. CARE has set up more than 300 VSLA groups in the target area, and 50% of these VSLAs are more than 2 years old, mobilizing 6,699 members – 80% women. These members have maintained a consistent pattern of saving and investment in microenterprises that have contributed to set up a voucher school feeding business with formal schools in their catchment areas. As an example of the community impact these groups can have, VSLAs – with support from the French Embassy in Haiti – set up a kitchen to provide food to school canteens. VSLA members have long expressed concerns about not being able to send their children, so they are motivated and eager to find innovative solutions that benefit their entire communities. For this pilot, the project team will help interested VSLA groups develop business plans for their individual learning centers, with a clear plan for withdrawing CARE financial support to the management of the centers within a 36-month period. From Year 2, the project will intensify business management capacity-building the founding members of the centers to provide them with the required knowledge and skills to effectively manage the centers from a social business perspective. The project will have three phases of 12 months each, starting in 2021 and ending in 2023. The proposed MD19 Lionsfunded project will support the initial two phases to complement and expand CARE’s VSLA work to date to address a crucial issue of girls’ education in rural impoverished communities. Key activities in the pilot project will include: • Mobilize communities. The project will engage target communities to assess the barriers to girls’ education, and mobilize community support for community-managed learning centers. • Sensitize VSLA groups on girls’ education. These meetings also will involve school management committees (SMCs) and parent-teachers associations. • Set up community-led girls’ learning centers. The project will work closely with interested VSLA groups to identify a location for the learning center, establish a good working relationship with SMCs, and develop a process for recruiting teachers and students, as well as establishing basic rules for the management of the centers. • Train VSLA members on financial literacy, business planning and quality monitoring. The aim is to build capacity among VSLAs and their partner SMCs to manage centers, as well as monitor, report and facilitate dialogue on the quality of teaching and coaching. • Improve nutrition. The project team will help develop action plans at each school for the production of vegetables to improve the availability of nutritious food in a sustainable way, using an environmental protection approach. Expected outcomes include: 3 • Increased learning opportunities for children, especially girls, from extremely poor families who don’t have access to formal school. • Functional community-managed girls’ centers that serve as a model for supporting girls’ education. • Improved parental guardianship and participation in their children’s education. Target beneficiaries Over two years, direct beneficiaries will include 1,000-1,200 learners (80% girls) who are enrolled in girls’ learning centers; and 1,500-2,000 VSLA members who go through capacity-building training, along with 200 people directly related to school management committees or parent-teacher associations. Budget Item Total Personnel $24,000 Girls’ Centers $30,500 Trainings $9,500 Office Costs $5,600 CARE USA Technical and Administrative support (13% of gift total) $10,400 Total $80,000 Thank you for your Consideration! We would be grateful to have the support of Multiple District 19 Lions, to create learning centers in Haiti where girls who have missed-out on basic schooling can catch-up on the education they have missed. By investing in girls’ education, you can change the trajectory for a girl, putting her on the path to a better future.

Subject:      Evans  Canyon Fire

I have been contacted by Michele Roth, the executive director for the Red Cross in this area.

She has informed me that no supplies, water, food, etc. are needed at this time.

The needs of over 100 families are being met with shelter, meals, emotional and health support.

What is needed is money to support this ongoing effort.

For those who wish to support the cause individually, checks can be sent to the following address:

                                                 American Red Cross

                                                 P.O. Box 3097

                                                 Seattle, WA 9811

                                                 Identify funds for “Evans Canyon Fire”

 

We will likewise bring up this need at our next board meeting on the 15th to see if our club will provide a corporate donation. We are now in a reserve mode.  We will be contacted if our services are needed. We are thankful for the response and format provided by Duane Lyons and Robert Bowman which we will hopefully utilize at some point. As for now we are on stand by.  Thank you one and all for your willingness to serve!

District F Lions,


Hello, I hope you are all doing well.  The District F Cabinet met last Saturday the 25th.  We had a great meeting and a lot of ideas were discussed.  Your Club will be contacted by Cabinet Chair so please watch for those emails.  The Cabinet Chairs are excited to share their thoughts and ideas with you.

I hope that your Club is meeting regularly.  Please plan of doing so if you are not.  I know that a lot of projects have had to be canceled because of COVID.  I also feel strongly that we need to continue to meet as Lions.  We could be calling each other, or using one of many virtual platforms that are available.  It is important that we meet and continue to Serve our communities.

Clubs are being very creative in their service, Please report what you've been doing to LCI and send me a quick note so I can share your creative ideas with the other clubs in the district.  I've heard of various "drive-thru" events.  Some clubs in  MD 19 have held Drive-thru food sales as fund raisers.  Now is the time to be creative AND safe in our Service.

What projects can we do outdoors while socially distancing?

Again, please send me a note of what you are doing so we can share it with the rest of the district.  It is a challenging time, I am confident that we as Lions will figure out a way through it.

I've also attached a couple of flyers for you to share with your Club members.  We have 2 more officer training opportunities, one on  Aug. 15th and another on Sept 12.   If you have not held club officer training, here are two more chances to do so.

Possibly contact all of your members and have the entire club attend as a Club meeting.

Finally it is important that you as Club officers share information with your membership, please feel free to forward any of my emails to your membership.  Let's stay connected, in this way we can help each other.

Thank you Lions!

 I received this information from Al Hedstrom who is our Multiple District Council Chair for this Lions year.  
Recently I also sent out an email encouraging you to continue to meet during this COVID19 times.  I really feel that it is important for us to keep in touch with each other even though we may not be able to meet in person.
I hope the information below will be helpful to you to continue your club meetings.

This year, our International President is Dr. Jung-Yul Choi.  If his name sounds familiar, it is because he is repeating as our International President.  I think most of you are aware that our 1st Vice President Judge Haynes H. Townsend passed suddenly in December of 2019.  Lions Clubs International board of Directors decided that we will keep in place the Board and Officers for this Lions year.
President Choi's theme for this year is "United in Kindness and Diversity."
Please take a few seconds to watch the video below and share it with your clubs.

Presidential Theme | Lions Clubs International

Presidential Theme | Lions Clubs International


We are having our first District Cabinet meeting on Saturday July 25th at 10 am via Zoom.  I am hoping it goes well.  Lol... I've been watching the videos and tutorials but sometimes things happen.
Send me an email if you would like a link.

Zoom Meetings on 

July 11 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM

and

July 18 8:30 AM - 12:30 PM

 

This workshop is held over two days and will enrich your leadership skills and enable you to take on further responsibility within your zone. Details about this workshop are listed below.

Pre-Assignments :  https://webmail.fairpoint.net/service/home/~/?auth=co&loc=en_US&id=46641&part=2 

There are two parts to your pre-assignment. The first part is the Preparing for Your Term as Zone Chairperson assignment, which you will find attached to this email. If you have any trouble accessing it, go to the Lions Club International webpage www.lionsclubs.org and use the search term Zone Chairperson Workshop. Download the pre-assignment from that page and print it out for your use.

The second part of the pre-assignment is to take three online courses:

1.       Goal Setting and Action Planning

2.       Conflict Resolution

3.       Effective Listening

You will find these courses in the Lions Learning Center. Attached to this email is a PowerPoint on “How to Access the Lions Learning Centre” that you might find beneficial.

Take time to complete the Zone Chairperson Workshop pre-assignments prior to attending class as the knowledge you gain from these pre-assignments will be used throughout the workshop. Please download and review the Zone and Region Chairperson e-Book before attending the workshop.

If you indicated in the survey that you are not already signed up for MyLion App, I will be in contact with you shortly to help you do that.  You will require your membership number; if you do not know your number please let me know and I will have it available.

Workshop in ZOOM Meeting Format

The format we will be using for the two workshop sessions is Zoom.  If you indicated that you were not familiar with this format, I will contact you in advance to introduce you to Zoom.  It is fairly user-friendly and fun to use.  You will receive a Zoom meeting notice (with link) closer to the date of training.  During the two days of the workshop, if you are having difficulty accessing Zoom, please call:

Sharon (USA) 1-360-412-0225

Wanda (Canada) 1-250-851-5292

 Al (Both Canada and USA) 1-360-621-8713

The facilitators and I are looking forward to meeting you and helping you gain knowledge for your successful year.  Please do not hesitate to contact me at lionwandac@gmail.com if I can be of assistance in any way.

Sincerely,

Wanda Carisse

Fellow Lions, Friends and Family,

It is with deep concern for the safety of everyone, that we have decided to cancel the Spring Conference for District F.  Full refunds for the conference will be going out within the week.

We are hopefully to find a mutual date, later this Spring to hold a day meeting and finalize the voting.  As well as do the drawing for the $1000 prize raffle.  If you have any tickets, please send those back right away to my office at 312 S 1st Street Selah WA  98942.

This is the time when Lions stand strong together.

Sincerely,

Lion DG Ken Allan
