President’s Service Blog: FOLAC Forum, Peru

miraflores mayorWhile I was in Miraflores, the main city near Lima, where Lions from Latin America and the Caribbean gathered for FOLAC  Forum, I had the honor of meeting with mayor there. Jorge Muñoz and I had the chance to discuss the importance of Lions in his area and how we make the communities we serve better places to live. From simple projects like highway clean ups to life-altering improvements such as providing clean drinking water, Lions around the world make a difference.miraflores mayor2

The mayor presented me with a certificate of accommodation, and I gave him the Lions Clubs International Medal of Merit. Through partnerships such as these, we can shine a light on all the wonderful work our 1.35 million Lions do every day.
