Dear Lions Family,
No one is more important than family and friends, but many of the people we’re closest to don’t know about the important work we do as Lions. That’s why I’m encouraging Lions clubs around the world to invite family and friends to join them for a special Family and Friends Month event in April.
It’s a time to show your family and friends how much they mean to you, and how much your Lions club means to the community. And it’s a great opportunity to grow your club by showing people the difference you’re making every day.
Download the Family and Friends Month flyer and share it with your club, then start planning your event for April. Don’t wait…start making your plans today!

Lions Clubs International is celebrating 2014 by showcasing what Lions do every day – make dreams come true in their community.
Since 1992, Lions in California have been decorating floats for the Annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Pasadena, Calif. This year the parade’s theme is Dreams Come True and Lions selected Matteo’s Dream, an inclusive playground built by Lions for children of all abilities, as the inspiration for their float design. Anne and I have the honor of riding the Lions float in this year’s Rose Parade.
Help us celebrate by sharing the wonderful story behind the float and be sure to tune into see the float live on television this morning.
Here’s everything you need to know about this year’s float.
Lions, thanks for sharing Matteo’s Dream, and for making dreams come true every day. Continue to follow your dream in 2014!
