When Dato’ Javern Lim the Chief Editor for “District 308B1 Legacy Book Project” asked me to write the message, I was honour and intrigued, It’s also give me great pleasure to send you my heartiest congratulations on your book to commemorate Centennial Year Celebration of Lions Clubs International in your District 308 B1.
Growth of Lionism over the century has been spectacular and eventful in meeting its objective as the nation’s voluntary service club organization under the motto of “We Serve”. It all started when the vision of a group of leaders who were willing to share their time money and ideals with less fortunate and gathered together to form first Lions Club International.
For the past 58 years, Lions Clubs in District 308 B1 have constantly worked together to improve the lives of individuals in your community. Your District’s signature projects like Lions Renal Centers, Lions Eyes Clinic, Lions Education Foundation, Lions Down Syndrome Centres are testimony and records of your remarkable collective achievements.
This book is not only about your outstanding achievement over years, which can be credited to the high level of quality leadership with proven commitment to serve the less fortunate, but it is also about the story of the human spirit. Your untiring self-sacrifice and compassion of LIONISM for 58 years are an inspiration to all.
With a huge array of pictures, memorabilia and with anecdotes and personal recollections contributed by numerous past and present Lions Leaders ,the book will be treasured not only by those connected to Lions whether as Lions or as friends of Lions, but by all those who to know about the history and future of Lionism in District B1.
May all of you continue to live up to the prestigious reputation and recognition in providing humanitarian services that benefits the less fortunate.
