We’re expecting you in Toronto!
With all the traveling I do, I often have a good amount of down time waiting in airports. I use this spare time to share photos on my Facebook page and catch up on Lions videos on YouTube. Here is a Lions Public Service Announcement video that I stumbled across recently. It’s an oldie but a goodie, focusing on the Lions’ strength of feeding their neighbors. I thought now would be the perfect time to share with you as our next Global Service Action Campaign, Relieving the Hunger, kicks off next month.
What kinds of projects and activities is your club planning to help feed the hungry?
On December 5, Lions and Leos everywhere will celebrate International Leo Day to recognize Leo clubs for their service in the community. Youth programs such as the Leo club help young people develop valuable leadership skills, network with key players in the community, and realize the impact of their humanitarian efforts. International Leo Day also helps strengthen the relationship between Lions and Leos, encouraging Leos to continue their service as Lions.
Consider sponsoring a Leo club to encourage the youth in your community to get involved and make a difference. Already sponsor a Leo club? Recruit new members and host your Leo new club induction event on December 5. Be sure to share your photos and stories from the induction events on social media, and follow the International Leo Day celebration on the Leo Facebook page.
Visit the Leo Zone for information about sponsoring a club, planning Leo activities and more.
