White House to Recognize Lions as Champions of Change

Lions Champions of Change - White HouseFor nearly a century, Lions have worked to improve our communities and the world. Now, our work will be recognized at the White House during a special Champions of Change ceremony that closes out a day of administrative briefings on key issues.

On Oct. 2, Lions from around the world will visit the White House in Washington, D.C. for high-level briefings and discussions of community problems and service. Lions will also speak about their work during two panel discussions. Lions and Leos around the world can tune in for a live broadcast of the event, as well as follow the hashtag #WHLions on Twitter for updates. More information will be posted on the LCI Web site as it becomes available.

    It is a great time for Lions across the country. To be recognized by the White House for all that the Lions do. Proud to be a Bedford Lion.

    Long overdue. Glad to see we are getting this recognition.

  • DAVID HUGHES

    Does this not seem a little too convenient timing??? Sounds like a way to use Lions and our powerful LIONS CLUBS INTERNATIONAL name, for political purposes only a month before Election Day!!! :-(

      A cynical view, but probably true. Nevertheless, what they mean for political advantage, will still promote the cause of Lionism. Our recocognition stands despite which political affiliation recognizes it.

      Why must you make such a gesture seem petty? The Lions deserve all the accolades they have coming. Shame on you for giving this a bad spin.

      Any assistance in spreading the LIONS message is greatly appreciated. Please Please do not try to push your own agenda since to us LIONS it does not matter who is sitting in the White House what is important is that we have an audience.
