Flash mobs are a fun way to get the word out about your club. They draw the attention of passersby in a public space, especially when you gather a large group of Lions and Leos together wearing your bright Lions shirts or vests.
Watch the video above to see how Leos in France organized a flash mob and had a great time dancing to promote their club.

Lions Clubs International was recognized with the Visionary Award at the 8th annual Spirit of Helen Keller Gala held in New York, USA on May 22nd. The award recognizes institutional friends whose generosity and innovations advance the mission of Helen Keller International (HKI).
First Vice President Barry Palmer represented LCI at the event and accepted the award. “I am honored to accept this award on behalf of the 1.35 million Lions club members – men and women who serve in over 46,000 clubs in more than 200 countries,” said VP Palmer. “Lions clubs remain ever-dedicated to service and to Helen Keller’s spirit, vision and her challenge to join with others to be Knights of the Blind in communities around the world.”
Other award recipients at the gala event included former US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who received the Humanitarian Award, and longtime HKI trustee Kate Ganz, who was honored with the Spirit of Helen Keller Award.
LCI has partnered with HKI through the Lions Clubs International Foundation, providing grants for Lions, their partners and health authorities to help restore sight for millions of people around the world. LCIF continues to partner with HKI in Africa, helping to prevent river blindness. Together, they have distributed more than 3.5 million doses of Mectizan (thanks to Merck and many other local partners), and helped train and retain more than 17,000 health workers.
