IOWA LIONS DISTRICT 9NW
9NW District Governor
9NW District Governor Mark Essing joined the Manson Lions Club in 1984.
He has served as Club President on four occasions, director, zone chair and vice district governor.
In the District Governor's message in "The Iowa Lion Magazine" he states: Our Motto is We Serve. We serve our town and city communities. We serve our district and our state, Iowa Lions Foundation as well as our Lions Clubs International. We are a volunteer service working together as one unit. Why are we volunteers? Think about it.
Itís not about money. Itís not for fame. Itís not for any personal gain. Itís just for love of fellow man; itís just to lend a helping hand. Itís just to give a tithe of self; itís something you just canít buy. Itís not medals won with pride, itís for the feeling deep inside. Itís that reward down in your heart; Itís the feeling that youíve been a part of helping others far and near that makes you be a volunteer.
We just like a little pat on the back and a little recognition Ė something like that. Just to let us know through our district and state we are on the right track.
