LQ: Lions in Virginia Prepare Kids for School

Every day, Lions work to improve the future for the next generation through protecting the environment, providing access to healthcare and making their communities better places to live. In Virginia, a Lions club formed for the explicit purpose of helping kids in their town.

The Children First Lions Club was chartered to assure  that children get a great start in school. Two evenings a month, this club holds the Little Lions Preschool for 3 to 5 year olds and their parents, which is aimed at getting the youngsters ready for school. The classes provide vital social interaction, along with skills needed in kindergarten. The students learn how to trace letters, cut with scissors and sing along to educational songs. The preschool encourages parental involvement and each family receives a packet of activities to complete at home to keep the learning going.

In this video, you’ll see how the club members work with parents to set up the children for success.

    Good activity.

  2. We Lionesses of Chandigarh Panchkula Diamond Club District 321A2 glad to learn the interest of our International President; Wayne Madden’s READING ACTION PROGRAM. This includes vast horizons to work for leading the society from darkness up to light. Lighting the lamp of true knowledge to dispel darkness of ignorance looming large on our mind is need of the day. It’s better to light a candle than to curse the darkness because no amount of darkness can blow the candle away.
    To combat all this, first of all we need our healthy eyes. So both the projects are Diamond Club prime projects.
