2014-15 President's Awards

I have several awards that give an opportunity for districts and clubs large and small, no matter where they exist, to strive for excellence and be recognized.

Blueprint for a Stronger ClubStrengthen the Pride

The most effective Lions clubs regularly identify ways to expand their humanitarian service impact, develop leaders, and meet club members’ needs and expectations.  Clubs can discover new ways to bring value to the community and to club members, by developing and implementing a plan or “blueprint”.  

Every club is encouraged to complete a Blueprint and upon completion receive a special Presidential Certificate via email to recognize your commitment!
