Palmer’s Blog: Meeting Lions Everywhere
One of my favorite things about being a Lion is the opportunity to meet amazing people from around the world, whether I am getting together with Lions or I am meeting the people that Lions are helping every day. Each person has his or her own story and dream, and I am blessed to be able to hear that story and to help him or her follow that dream.
Above is a photo of me and a Lion I met in Australia earlier this month. Lion Col has been selling his joke books in the Main Street for over 20 years. All the proceeds for his sales go to the local Lions. I was so pleased to meet this Lion, who follows his dream and serves his community every day. Even just the simple sale of a joke book on the sidewalk can make a difference, especially when you’ve been doing it for as long as Lion Col!
Have you recently met a fellow Lion or a member of your community whose story and dream really stuck with you? Tell me all about it in the comments section!
