The April edition of Lions Quarterly is now available, and this issue’s Global Impact segment focuses on how Lions around the world are leading projects that make their community green. As this month kicks off the Protecting Our Environment Global Service Action Campaign, Lions everywhere are participating by planning environmental projects. A successful environmental project begins with the question, “What is the challenge in my community?”
Watch the video above to learn about Lions tree planting campaigns, recycling projects, water preservation initiatives and more. Visit the Lions News Network to watch the entire April LQ, and to download a copy to share at your next meeting or event!

Dear Lions Family,
Family and Friends Month is now underway! Clubs around the world are hosting special events throughout April to showcase their clubs. It’s a great time to show your family and friends how much they mean to you, and how much your Lions club means to the community.
It’s also a great opportunity to grow your club by showing people the difference you’re making every day. New members allow you to do even more, so ask your family and friends to join your club so they can feel the satisfaction of service and the fellowship that comes with being a Lion.
If you haven’t planned your Family and Friends Month event, do it today!
And be sure to join us on Facebook for the Lions World Lunch Relay. Starting at 6pm (CST) on Thursday, April 3rd, you can see photos and follow the Lunch Relay in “real time” as it travels around the world! Share your own photos of your club’s event on Facebook with the hashtag #LCIWorldLunch.
Join me in making Family and Friends Month a big success!
