Governor's Quarterly Report December 2016


Lion David is an east-end Toronto boy who graduated from Riverdale Collegiate, York University and Toronto Teachers’ College.  His career in education spanned 35 years with the Durham Board of Education and its predecessors. As an elementary school principal he was privileged to have overseen the opening of two new schools, one in Whitby and one in Ajax.


Lion David is a charter member of the Uxbridge Lions Club and transferred to the Haliburton Lions Club when he and Lion Betty retired to Kennisis Lake in 1999. At the District Level David has served as Governor’s Newsletter Editor, Constitution and By-laws Chairperson, Region and Zone Chairperson, Cabinet Secretary and 2nd and 1st Vice District Governor. He is a graduate of the Faculty Development Institute and is a Certified Guiding Lion. Lions David and Betty have co-chaired three District A16 Conventions and were Registration Chairs for the MDA 2013 Convention.


Leisure activities center mostly on the performing arts with the Highlands Summer Festival, the Highlands Festival Singers, the Highlands Male Chorus and Heritage Ballet’s annual performance of “The Nutcracker”.  Other activities include building model wooden ships, fishing, gardening and reading.


Lions David and Betty enjoy their blended family of seven children, 12 grandchildren and one-great grandson. Family get-togethers are “chaotically fun!”

Lion David looks forward to working with the great Lions of A16 as we celebrate 100 years of Global Service.
