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!

Palmer’s Blog: LCI Staff Appreciation

Author: Leave A Comment

G’day from Lions Clubs International Headquarters! On Monday, I had the opportunity to say thank you to the wonderful staff here at HQ, who work so hard year-round to ensure Lions have the resources they need to serve their communities. We held a lovely Staff Appreciation Lunch, and I was able to honor several individuals for their exceptional work for Lions. They are behind the scenes every day, helping Lions everywhere follow their dreams and make a difference in communities worldwide.

Right now, staff is gearing up for convention in Toronto — it’ll be here before you know it! Stay up to date at Facebook.com/LCICon.

LQ: Lions Help Musicians in New Orleans

Author: Leave A Comment

The Uptown Lions Club is the first new club club chartered in New Orleans in 35 years. The club’s mission is simple: to help provide New Orleans musicians with access to affordable health care. While serving musicians may not be a traditional mission statement for other Lions around the world, it makes sense for the Uptown Lions because of the huge role that music plays in the culture and history of the New Orleans community. These Lions identified a need unique to their community and have set out to achieve their goals.

Watch the Lions Quarterly segment above to learn more about the Uptown Lions Club’s projects. Or, watch the entire April Lions Quarterly to see how Lions are making an impact around the world.
