Photo of the Week: Maine Lions Get People with Disabilities Moving
With 1.35 million Lions worldwide, our projects are as diverse as our membership. Many clubs choose to help those with disabilities, and a number of clubs have formed to support the needs and goals of the Special Olympics. We found this week’s photo from the Massebesic Lions Club at The Reporter.
The club has built personal energy transportation vehicles, also known as PETs®, for the past four years. Once assembled, the three-wheeled vehicles are powered by a hand crank. They allow people in developing nations who cannot walk to travel, even in locations that do not have paved roads or sidewalks. The club recently completed its 50th PET®, which cost about $250 each to build.
