A picture is worth a thousand words. And today’s digital age makes it easy to share your photos and show Lions around the world how your club is making an impact! Document your club’s service activities and success stories by taking pictures at your next event. Submit your photo through the LCI website, along with a description of the photo and your contact info, and we’ll help share your success story on our social media channels.

What Makes a Good Photo?

LCI headquarters receives many, many photos from around the world. Make yours stand out by showing Lions in action! We want to see you getting your hands dirty in environmental projects, engaging with community members and youth, making friends at your local fundraiser, having fun and proudly sporting your Lions gear. Submit a photo that tells your story with just one glance. Candid photos of people are great — try to avoid staged photos and “grip-and-grin” check presentations.

Be a Lion!

Author: 2 Comments

As you continue planning your Family and Friends activities and events for April, consider browsing the Lions News Network or the LCI YouTube page for videos that show potential members just what it means to be a Lion. You can download videos from the LCI website and play them in the background at your World Lunch Relay event!

Above is a great video about how Lions are recycling, planting trees, providing clean water in their communities and more — service activities that are perfectly aligned with next month’s Global Service Action Campaign, “Protecting Our Environment.”

Why MyLCI?

Author: 4 Comments

There’s no question that the best parts of being a Lion include serving the community, making an impact in people’s lives and making new friends (just to name a few). But when you’re a club or district officer, being a Lion also means behind-the-scenes administrative work that isn’t always fun, but is necessary for keeping track of members, improving service activities and running clubs smoothly.

That’s where MyLCI comes in. MyLCI is an online system that makes it easy to submit reports. If you’re a club officer or district officer, you can use MyLCI to help you complete various tasks:

Plan a Family & Friends Environment Project

Author: Leave A Comment

Not only is April Family and Friends Month, but it also kicks off the Protecting Our Environment Global Service Action Campaign. An environmental project is a perfect opportunity for your club to invite family and friends to join in the service and show them how Lions are truly making an impact in the community.

Consider planning one of these following family-friendly projects that helps protect the environment:

  • Plant trees, flowers or grass at a local park.
  • Organize a beach or river bank clean-up project.
  • Host a recycled trash fashion show.
  • Remove debris and trash from the community’s nature trails, walking/bike paths and/or roadsides.
  • Sponsor a nature camp to teach youth and parents about environmental preservation.
  • Clean up a park or playground.
  • Remove graffiti from public buildings, bridges or fences.
  • Participate in the Lions World Lunch Relay on April 4 by planning your service project at a local park in the morning and having a picnic afterward!

Today Is International Women’s Day!

Author: Leave A Comment

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:

  • Organize a Reading Action Program activity that encourages mothers to read to their children.
  • Volunteer at or help support a local women and children’s shelter by donating clothes, toys and books.
  • Invite women to join your Lions club, and plan family-friendly service projects that encourages them to get their kids involved, too.
  • For Family and Friends Month in April, consider screening “Girl Rising,” a groundbreaking film that tells the extraordinary stories of nine young girls around the world, and focuses on the power of education to change the world.

Make every day International Women’s Day! Think globally, act locally and make a difference.
