Dear Lions,

In 1928, Gandhi laid the cornerstone of a school for blind, deaf and disabled students in Ahmedabad. That original building is still in use today. A year and a half ago, I laid the cornerstone for a new building at that school. During my latest trip to India, I was lucky enough to stand beside International President Yamada as he officially opened the new building.

As clubs, districts and multiple districts come together during this LCIF Week, remember that LCIF is the cornerstone of service. Service looks different all around the world. In your area, it might be vision screenings, beach cleanups, or vaccinations. Whatever service looks like in your community, know that LCIF is there to support you while you bring hope and comfort to those around you.

I also want to remind you that your donations to LCIF help make it possible for Lions to meet the growing needs of people around the world. Thank you for your generous support of LCIF.

LCIF has laid the cornerstone, and you Lions are building upon it every day!

Together in Service,

Joe Preston
Chairperson, Lions Clubs International Foundation
