Having a website is crucial to keeping Leo members updated and informed, especially as today’s youth depends on the convenience of the Internet every day. Lions Clubs International provides e-LeoClubhouse, a free, easy way to create and maintain a website for Leos.
Why Start a Website?
Perhaps your Leo club already has a Facebook page to keep members updated. Facebook is a great way to connect with members on a daily basis! However, as your Facebook page constantly changes with new updates, messages and photos, certain information can get buried. Your e-LeoClubhouse website keeps all the pertinent information – meeting locations, projects, events, member/officer information and more – in one spot.
Features and Benefits:
Do you have a website to promote your Leo club’s youth volunteer opportunities? Share your site and any tips in the comments below.
Incorporating families into your Lions club not only helps increase membership, but it also helps families grow closer together. Children can learn the value of serving their communities at an early age by volunteering with their parents. Current members can invite sisters, brothers, aunts and uncles to help out with community projects. Grandparents can spend more time with their grandchildren. All the while, Lions are making a bigger impact.
Below are some considerations to take when planning family-friendly Lions projects and meetings.
Do you have any tips for organizing family-friendly Lions club projects?
The above Public Service Announcement (PSA) is a fun way to raise awareness about Lions’ “hunting” strengths – that is, their ability to hunt for and identify issues in their community and address them through community service. In this video, Lions organized an environmental service project to hunt for trash and clean the earth.
Share this video at your next Lions environment event, or browse other Lions PSAs available for download.
How is your Lions club using your “hunting” strength during this month’s global service action campaign, Protecting Our Environment?
Lions Services for Children projects include collecting books, food and clothing for kids; starting a literacy program at a school or library to encourage children to read; and organizing a vision or hearing screening. In the above photo, the Manila Divisoria Lions Club provided school supplies and raincoats to a local day care center.
