I have been a member of Lions for 12 years. I have been a member of Northeast Eyeopener, Bowness, Sundre, and Spruceview Lions Clubs. I have joined a new club wherever I have located to.

I have served as Fundraising Chair, Membership Chair, Vice President, Club President, Chair of Stampede Parade & Breakfast, Public Relations Committee, and Assistant to the Casino Treasurer and Club Secretary.

Cabinet/Council positions I have held include:  Zone Chair (2); Sight Chair; LFOC Chair; MDC Council Treasurer; MDC Lions Quest Chair.

Most of my career has been spent in the accounting field, banking and the customs clearance field.

I have 4 children, 11 grandchildren, and 4 great-grandchildren. My best days are spent with the family camping, teaching the grandchildren, and golfing.

I have received numerous awards through Lions, and I am proud of each one. I love to volunteer and make our community a better place to live in and reach out and help people in need. 

It is an honour to attend training for Lions such as the ALLI and ELLI to learn how to be an amazing asset to Lions. The best part is to be able to go to forums and conventions to renew your beliefs by meeting people who give you the spirit and confidence to do your job as a Lion 100% of the time.
