During the month of April, we encourage Lions to promote the Leo Club Program for Leo Club Awareness Month. Sponsoring a Leo club brings new energy to Lions clubs, and provides young people with youth volunteer opportunities that will help them develop strong leadership skills and friendships that will last a lifetime.
Existing Leo clubs and their sponsoring Lions clubs can show that the Leo Program is worth joining by actively promoting successful Leo projects through Facebook and e-LeoClubhouse. Or, share the above “Leading for Life” video on your Facebook page to show how Leos are making a global impact.
How is your Lions club helping today’s youth become leaders for life?
In January, bushfires swept through Coonabarabran’s farmlands and Warrumbungles National Park in Australia, destroying more than 50 homes. The Dorrigo community, farmers and the Dorrigo Lions Club responded immediately. Community members organized a fodder drop, which was delivered to affected farmers and their livestock during the weeks following the fire.
The Dorrigo Lions Club donated funds to support relief efforts, and sent a large load of hay bales directly to some of the cattle producers devastated by the bushfires.
When natural events such as tornadoes, hurricanes, floods and fires occur, Lions are always there to provide disaster relief wherever needed.
How does your Lions club respond when disaster strikes?
