Today’s submitted photo features the Santa Lucía Leo Club during an environmental education event that involved local children. The Leos worked with children to create posters that raised environmental awareness, then placed the posters in strategic locations around the community.
Participate in this month’s Global Service Action Campaign, Protecting Our Environment, while celebrating Leo Club Awareness Month by involving Leos and youth in your community. What does your club have planned for April?
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!
April is Leo Club Awareness Month! In addition to sponsoring a Leo club or planning projects that involve local Leos and youth, consider attending the Leo Lion Summit at this year’s Lions International Convention in Toronto on July 4, 2014. The summit helps ensure Leos have a voice within the Lions organization, and provides an opportunity to build the Leo-Lion relationship.
The program includes an open, town-hall format session that allows Lions and Leos to share their experiences and ask questions, as well as one-on-one interactions and workshops.
For further details on what to expect at the summit and how to register, visit the Leo Lion Summit page.

The April edition of Lions Quarterly is now available, and this issue’s Global Impact segment focuses on how Lions around the world are leading projects that make their community green. As this month kicks off the Protecting Our Environment Global Service Action Campaign, Lions everywhere are participating by planning environmental projects. A successful environmental project begins with the question, “What is the challenge in my community?”
