Palmer’s Blog: A New Park in Taiwan

Author: Leave A Comment

Earlier this week, I visited Lions in Taipei, Taiwan. I attended the opening of a new park in the community, including the unveiling of a beautiful Lions plaque. Lions have planted 500 new trees in the park, and have worked hard to ensure the new park is a space for everyone to enjoy.

Environmental projects are some of my favorite Lions activities — it’s always great to get out in the fresh air with friends and family to help protect our planet.

Thanks to the Lions in District 300G2 for a wonderful stay!

Lions Care Project in Toronto

Author: Leave A Comment

The Lions International Convention is just around the corner! On July 4-8, Lions from around the world will come together in Toronto, Canada, to meet with friends, attend shows and seminars, and explore the beautiful city. And of course, because Lions are always helping others wherever they go, there will also be an opportunity to give back to the host city through the Lions Care project.

The Lions Care 2014 project will benefit the YWCA Toronto, which provides shelter for women and children. Convention attendees can donate toiletries, public transportation tokens and gift cards. There will be a designated area in the exhibit hall where Lions can make donations.

Are you going to the convention this year? Tell us what you’re most excited about!

Since the Reading Action Program launched nearly two years ago, Lions around the world have embraced projects that help to improve global literacy rates. Something as simple as donating books to a local library can have a huge impact on the lives of children and adults. The video above features members of the Vieux Fort Lions Club, who recently worked with St. Lucians living in England to provide books to the Vieux Fort Library.

How has your Lions club addressed literacy concerns in your community?

Lions in Australia Plant Trees

Author: Leave A Comment

Today’s featured photo was submitted by the Jesmond Lions Club in Australia, who have been planting trees at the Pambalong Nature Reserve near Newcastle for three years. During that time, the Lions planted over 2,000 trees! See more photos of the Jesmond Lions Club’s tree planting project on the club’s Facebook page.

Such a simple project can make a huge impact on the environment, and it’s a great way to involve family, friends and children in hands-on service that directly benefits the community. Get started by downloading our Lions Tree Planting Planning Guide!

How does your Lions club protect and preserve the environment?
