Shortly after her induction into office on Wednesday in Monrovia, Madam Reed pointed out that as the organization strives to assist the blind and under-privileged throughout the country, they should remain committed and overcome their challenges.
The newly inducted president of the Greater Monrovia LIONS Club reiterated that her administration will work together as a team to put smiles on the faces of those who are in need and make a difference. “We should hold ground and don’t allow anyone to take our place. We will help the blind and under-privileged throughout the country,” Madam Reed added.
Madam Reed also pleaded with members of the Club to unite and exhibit true characteristics that would encourage new members into the Club. She assured them that their project would be implemented in grand style.
The Club’s new Executives were installed into offices by humanitarian, Ezat Eid, a Lebanese businessman, who charged the officials to execute their duties professionally in the interest of the Club.
