The goal of the new project “LITPC 100” is to challenge 100 LITPC members (to be referred to as the “LITPC 100”) to sell 50 of their surplus pins at $2 each, thereby each raising $100 for the LITPC Scholarship Program.
If 100 LITPC members support the project, the results will be an additional $10,000 for our Youth Scholarship Program. “LITPC 100” members will receive a special pin designed just for this purpose.The “LITPC 100” members are also encouraged to help other members become “LITPC 100” members by sharing their surplus club and/or subdistrict pins. These pins can be sent to the areas they represent where resale might be somewhat easier.
Lion Bill Prucha has the distinction of being the first $100 donor to the LITPC 100 at the Asheville Pin Swap Breakfast. Twenty-two additional donations were made in a matter of minutes. At the LITPC Annual Breakfast meeting in Oconomowoc in June, Lion Dorothy DeRouchey started the ball rolling again, and before it stopped, a total of 25 members gave $100 each.
The “LITPC 100” award pins are being donated by Lion Curt Barnhill and will be numbered. Most donors requested special numbers and the list is printed below. This roster will also be published on the LITPC website.
Since the precedent was established in Asheville, NC every LITPC member who sells $100 worth of pins or donates $100 will be recognized as a member of “LITPC 100”. The $100 donations will also be credited toward a William A. Smith fellowship or progressive pin. Additionally, each “LITPC 100” member will receive the pewter-toned scholarship pin if they don’t already have one. Anyone interested in becoming part of this program may contact LITPC President Paul Viano or Past President Jim Minnich, co-chairs.

The support of the LITPC membership for the Youth Scholarship Program certainly demonstrates that LITPC members are “Lions First”.
