Palmer’s Blog: A Successful #LCIWorldLunch

Author: Leave A Comment

Dear Lions Family,

I want to thank you for the great response to our Lions World Lunch Relay on April 4th!

Over 2,200 clubs registered and nearly 200,000 people participated in this unique international event. Lions clubs around the world celebrated their achievements and shared their commitment to service with family and friends. Clubs shared a meal, collected food for the hungry, and found new members who want to be part of the fellowship and fun of being a Lion.

Lions also did a great job of generating publicity for the event. There were Lunch Relay stories on television stations and in newspapers in many local communities. Lions also shared photos of their lunch events on the LCI World Lunch Facebook page so fellow Lions around the world could follow the event. It was inspiring to see so many Lions come together on this special day. I hope clubs will continue to use Facebook and other social media to stay connected and promote their clubs.

Remember that April is Family and Friends Month, so if you haven’t planned your special event, get started today. Thank you again for making the Lions World Lunch Relay such a great success!
