Lions Clubs International observes International Women’s Day, a time to call for the end of violence and trafficking against women and girls, and for the promotion of education, development and opportunity. We are also pleased to report the continuing growth of women at Lions, increasing to 33% of all new members this year, up from 31% last fiscal year. Now nearly 26% of all members overall, and growing.
Lions, take the opportunity to focus your service on women and young girls in your community this month:
Make every day International Women’s Day! Think globally, act locally and make a difference.
March is Eye Donor Awareness Month — an opportunity to recognize eye donors and their families, celebrate corneal recipients, and raise awareness about the importance of eye donations for corneal transplants and research. Today’s video from the Lions Quarterly archives features the Lions Eye Bank of Wisconsin, one of the many Lions Eye Banks worldwide that recovers, evaluates, stores and distributes human eye tissue for vision restoration, research and education.
Watch the video to learn how Lions’ work with eye banks helps change people’s lives. Learn more about Lions Eye Banks on the LCI website.
Does your Lions club help support a local eye bank?

After serving as a Club President, a Lion may find him or herself at a crossroads regarding the next phase of Lion life. In this webinar, explore possible opportunities for Past Club Presidents including serving on district committees, as a district chairperson, in the role of the zone chairperson, and continuing leadership at the club level.
The session will include a discussion of the decision-making tool of a personal mission statement, and will follow the story of three past club presidents and where their next dream of service led them.
Wherever you are in your Lions journey, this webinar will extend your understanding of additional leadership opportunities both within and beyond the club. We hope you will join us online for what should prove to be an enlightening and engaging webinar that could lead you to your next Lions dream!
