Video: Lions Build a Nature Park

Author: Leave A Comment

In celebration of Earth Day and Lions’ commitment to this month’s Protecting Our Environment Global Service Action Campaign, we’re sharing a video from Lions Quarterly archives that features Lions who built a nature park for their community. Once a former disaster site, the area was transformed into a park for local families to enjoy, as well as a memorial for those who lost their lives to a flood in 1972.

How is your Lions club celebrating Earth Day today?

The webinar will review the pros and cons of each conflict management  approach as well as when to use each one — competition, avoidance, compromise, accommodation or collaboration.  Collaboration, the optimal choice, will be discussed in detail.

Lions Host a Reading Carnival

Author: Leave A Comment

Today’s photo from the Submit a Photo collection features the Montclare Elmwood Park Lions Club in Illinois, USA. These Lions held a Reading Carnival, during which 105 children enjoyed story time, a puppet theater, face painting, temporary tattoos, crafts, balloon twisting, snacks and photos.

Through the Reading Action Program, Lions everywhere show their commitment to improving global literacy every day. In addition to hosting a local reading carnival, service activities that encourage reading include donating books to families in need, organizing a story time for parents and their children, and sponsoring a creative writing workshop.

Palmer’s Blog: Welcome, New Lions!

Author: Leave A Comment

Last week, I met members of the Lions Club Raasiku, a new charter club in Tallinn, Estonia. It’s one of my greatest pleasures to meet new Lions — to hear how they plan to take on new challenges, serve their communities and continue to grow their club. I also love learning why they decided to start a new club and become a Lion.

Perhaps you’ve met someone who has considered joining your club, but has declined because it just didn’t seem like the right fit. There are so many people who want a chance to help others, and starting a new Lions club gives them an opportunity to form a club that meets their own interests. For example, campus clubs are designed to involve students and young adults. Cyber clubs meet online. There are even clubs that bring people with similar hobbies or of the same ethnic background together. And all with the same mission: We Serve.

As you continue to spread the message of Lions in your community and recruit potential members, be sure to also encourage others to start a new club. When you sponsor a new club, you’re helping the community even more by expanding your reach.
