Has your Lions club been featured in the local news recently? Share your story!
Every new Lion means two more hands to help support the community. In the above video, Lions in Australia share how they make a global impact through their local actions. Fundraisers, disaster relief and community service projects are just some of the ways that Lions serve those in need.
How are you promoting your Lions club to attract new members and better serve your community?
The Oregon Central Lions Club held a local health fair for the community. At the fair, Lions provided hearing and vision screenings to attendees.
Plan an event in your community that focuses on promoting a healthy lifestyle. Partner with eye care professionals to carry out a vision screening event, or organize an activity that increases diabetes awareness. Visit the Health Programs page for more information and ideas.
What is your favorite Lions project that focuses on health?
Every month, the LCI Extension and Membership Division conducts a Membership Netcast, which is an interactive online forum for Lions clubs members. Lions can register and participate in the netcasts to ask the panelists questions, as well as share their success stories in order to learn and motivate each other.
Register for the next Membership Netcast, which will be held on May 22, 2013, and will focus on the topic “Inviting, Inducting and Involving New Members.” New members, young and old, are the key to long-lasting Lions clubs that local and global communities can always count on. The more your club focuses on recruiting new members and keeping them happy and involved in local volunteer opportunities, the more your Lions club can serve.

Here’s your chance to share your Lions experiences and memories! We encourage you to share your Lions story by grabbing your smart phone and creating a short one-minute video that tells everyone why you’re a Lion. Or, tell us your favorite Lions club community service projects, or a fond memory of helping others and serving your community.
Joining a Lions club changes lives — not only the lives of community members and people around the world whom Lions projects impact, but the lives of members who find a way to connect with others and give back to the community. Tell your story through video, post it on Facebook or YouTube, and let us know! We’ll share it with others and may even include it in a future issue of the digital LION Magazine.
