I was in Puerto Rico over the weekend, helping Lions with a service activity that provided food and clothes for homeless people in the area. That’s one of the many, many things I love about being a Lion — we are global and local . Not only are Lions reaching out to people in need in other parts of the world, from recycling eyeglasses that will eventually be given to someone across the globe to providing relief when disaster strikes in a completely different country, but we are also focusing on our neighbors. The people close to home who need our help.
That’s what the Puerto Rico Lions are doing by feeding and clothing the homeless people in their community. By making our local communities stronger, happier and healthier, we are truly making a great impact.
How is your Lions club helping your neighbors?
Lionism as a Past District Governor is an honor which offers both challenges and opportunities. In this webinar, we will explore the characteristics and qualities of a Past District Governor and the unique challenges of Lionism as a Past District Governor. In addition, we will explore paths of continued Lion involvement a Past District Governor could embrace that are both personally satisfying and that further the mission and goals of LCI.
Whether you are a current District Governor, a Past District Governor, or any Lion, this webinar will expand your understanding of continuing Lion leadership as a mentor, trainer-facilitator, and first supporter.

The January 2014 issue of Lions Quarterly includes a segment that features Lions in Wisconsin and their first-ever statewide project. The Stuff the Bus project collects school supplies and books for students — helping local children get ready and get excited for school. More than 75 Lions clubs worked together with their families, friends and community members to collect nearly US$150,000 worth of school supplies.
Watch the video above to learn more about the project, and see how Lions used local media outlets and Facebook to get the word out.
