Kicking Off Family & Friends Month!

Author: Leave A Comment

Dear Lions Family,

Family and Friends Month is now underway! Clubs around the world are hosting special events throughout April to showcase their clubs. It’s a great time to show your family and friends how much they mean to you, and how much your Lions club means to the community.

It’s also a great opportunity to grow your club by showing people the difference you’re making every day. New members allow you to do even more, so ask your family and friends to join your club so they can feel the satisfaction of service and the fellowship that comes with being a Lion.

If you haven’t planned your Family and Friends Month event, do it today!

Starting at 6pm (CST) on Thursday, April 3rd, you can see photos and follow the Lunch Relay in “real time” as it travels around the world! Share your own photos of your club’s event on Facebook with the hashtag #LCIWorldLunch.

Join me in making Family and Friends Month a big success!

Scott Drumheller to Lead LCI Headquarters

Author: 8 Comments

The International Board of Directors announced in March that attorney Scott Drumheller will lead Lions’ headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, as executive administrator and secretary, effective April 1, 2014.

He succeeds Peter Lynch, who retired as senior executive administrator because of health reasons. Drumheller joined Lions Clubs International in September 2003 as its general counsel, and he also served as secretary since 2006.

Lynch now is serving Lions Clubs International as chief strategic adviser.

“I would like to thank Peter for his dedication and outstanding service to the association and foundation over the past 24 years. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to serve the association in my new capacity,” says Drumheller.

Says Lynch, “I can’t say enough about how pleased I am, with the board’s blessing, to be handing over the baton to Scott. We are all very fortunate to have someone with his great abilities.”

Lions Conduct Sight for Kids Screenings

Author: Leave A Comment

Today’s photo features Lions in the Philippines providing vision screenings to local children. The La Union (Host) Lions Club, La Union (LD) and San Fernando (LU) Lions Clubs conducted a joint Sight for Kids project. Over 700 children were screened; 45 students were found with eye defects and were refracted right away.

Focused on serving Asia, The LCIF and Johnson & Johnson Sight for Kids program has screened more than 17 million children over the past 10 years. Thanks to the Johnson & Johnson Donate a Photo campaign, which ends today, over 23,000 more children received eye exams in the past six months. Thank you, Lions and Leos, for donating your photos to help support Sight for Kids. Every photo you donated helped save a child’s sight!
