Lions Club Blood Drive @ Vitalant
Mar 27 @ 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
We are coordinating another Lions Community Blood Drive, and this one will be our first-ever to be held on a Saturday!  The date is March 27, 2021, and the hours will be 11 AM to 3 PM.  The location will be the same as our November blood drive, in the large conference room (the Sacramento Room) at Vitalant Headquarters, located at the former Mather Air Force Base.
A question came up about timing from a potential blood donor who is scheduled to receive the 2nd vaccination three days before the blood drive.
I have communicated with staff at Vitalant.  I have been informed that there is NO waiting period between receiving either the Moderna or the Pfizer vaccines and donating blood.  When you are asked about recent vaccinations during the registration process at the blood drive, simply tell the staff person which vaccine you received so that it can be added to your Vitalant record.
Lions Blood Drive date:  Saturday, March 27, 2021, 11:00 AM-3:00 PM
Location:  Vitalant Headquarters, 10536 Peter A McCuen Blvd., Mather, CA 95655

Please bring a Photo I.D. /
Please eat well and drink plenty of water prior to donating.
Donors must wear a mask or face covering that meets CDC guidelines

District 4-C5 2021 Convention
Apr 16 – Apr 18 all-day

Currently, the district convention is scheduled for April 16-18, 2021. We will have to wait until we know what is happening with Covid-19 to be sure.

Please mark your calendar for a possible one day awards convention for the first weekend of June that we may need to do in lieu of our regular convention. This will be similar to last year’s one day convention.

2021 Montreal Lions Clubs International Convention
Jun 25 – Jun 29 all-day

2021 International Convention

Due to the continuing concerns about the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the board of directors voted to transition the 2021 Montreal Lions Clubs International Convention to a virtual event that will be delivered totally online. This decision was made with the health and safety of our Lions, staff and vendors in mind as limiting international travel and large gatherings is key to global containment strategies.

Although we are disappointed that we won’t be able to host this event in person, we are excited about hosting our first virtual international convention that can safely connect Lions from around the world. We are still finalizing the details of your new convention experience, and will share those with you as soon as they are ready.

Here are some important details about the 2021 virtual convention we’d like to share with you:

  • Everyone’s invited – Our 2021 convention will be a virtual event that’s open to all Lions and Leos around the world.
  • Registration fees – The registration fee will be US$50 until March 31, then US$75 beginning April 1. The registration fee for Leos will be US$30 regardless of date. Convention is currently scheduled for June 25-29. Additional event and registration details will be provided soon.
  • Current registrants – Lions who are currently registered for convention will receive an email soon with more information about their registration options.
  • Elections – Executive officer and international director elections will be conducted electronically, and voting procedures will be forthcoming.
  • Convention updates – Check our convention website LCICon for convention updates and details as they become available.

This global health pandemic has forced us all to make decisions and changes that place health and safety first. However, we are optimistic that with each new day there is hope, and as Lions, we continue to find new ways to stay connected, safely serve our communities and continue our global mission of service.

We appreciate your understanding during this challenging time for our organization and the world, and thank you for your incredible service as a Lion.

Regards,

Dr. Jung-Yul Choi
International President
