Photo of the Week: Lions in Turkey Plant Trees, Start Forest to Protect Environment

During the recent “Protecting our Environment” Global Service Action Campaign, our members donated nearly 100,000 hours of service to more than 1,000 environmental projects. We received a photo of one of these projects from Zeynep Kocasinan of the Fethiye Lions Club in Fethiye, Turkey.

This photo shows club members at work during a tree planting on April 17, 2011. MD 118-R officials – including District Governor Nasuhi Ondersev – joined the Lions for the tree planting, which took place during the grand opening of the Fethiye Lions Club Forest.

If your club took part in our “Protecting our Environment” campaign, please leave a comment to tell us about it.

  • Lions are the champions!

    My wife Lion Saadet Yeni is a member of Fethiye Lions Club and Zone Chairperson for the term 2010-2011.

    I am following Lions International projects and happy to see many environment projects in our town of Fethiye, in Turkey and in the world.

    I congratulate all of you.

  • I am very happy and thankful that you noticed our environment project. We are very happy that we have been able to be a part of our Lions International President’s global action campaign.

    With lots of love from Fethiye Lions Club, lots of love from Turkey.

  • I am the Zone Chairperson of Fethiye Lions Club and one of the club’s members. I am very happy that you have shared our Fethiye Lions Club Forest in the Lions International Blog since it is a project that is very important for us.

    Thank you very much for sharing our photo.
    With best wishes from Turkey.

  • I’m so proud as a member of Environment Committee.

  • This is certainly a fantastic Global Campaign! Our Club Agrigento Chiaramonte also has had this project on “Photo of the week” in this Blog, for the same Campaign: worldwide Lions protect the environment.

    Thank you very much from Fethiye Lions Club

  • Thank you very much for giving Fethiye Lions Club a chance to share about our tree planting and the openning of Fethiye Lions Club Forest. Many Lions Clubs in Turkey planted thousands of trees in Turkey this year under the “Protecting our Environment” Global Service Action Campaign.
    We hope that the same enthusiam will continue in the coming months and years. Due to the warm weather condition in the town of Fethiye, which is in the Southwestern part of Turkey, we will need to wait until October 2011 to continue with our tree planting, which we are already planning.
    Many thanks to Lions Clubs International for sharing our picture and story.

    • You are very welcome! We’re honored to share your wonderful “Protecting our Environment” photo and story. 🙂
