In our November issue, learn about the Environmental Photo Contest, Relieving the Hunger, International Leo Day and more.
Hunger affects rural, urban and suburban areas of every nation and every community. Your club can help those who don’t have enough to eat by participating in the Relieving the Hunger Global Service Action Campaign during December and January, or at any time throughout the year. Projects include volunteering at a local food bank, delivering food baskets to people in need or sponsoring a food drive for a local pantry. Get started now! Find a food bank at the Global FoodBanking Network. Be sure to report your project on MyLCI to qualify for the Centennial Service Challenge, and help us reach our goal of serving 100 million people by 2017.
The Club Excellence Process is a fun, interactive workshop that brings members together and helps strengthen service, improve club effectiveness and enhance your membership experience. In order to make it easier for your club to participate, we offer two versions of CEP. Your club can choose between CEP Pro, in which a trained Lion facilitator guides members through the workshop, and CEP Lite, with a member of your own club leading the workshop. Help your club achieve excellence and register today!
Show your pride and commitment to preserving the environment by taking part in the 2015 Environmental Photo Contest. Categories include Animal Life, Plant Life, Landscapes and Weather. Clubs are encouraged to hold a local Photo Contest and submit the Best of Show photo to their district office. Lions Districts must send their winning photo to their Multiple Districts by January 15, 2015. Winners in each category are chosen at the Lions Clubs International Convention. Learn more about the annual Environmental Photo Contest and how Lions club members can enter.
On December 5, we celebrate International Leo Day. This is an annual occasion to commemorate the organization of the first Leo club on December 5, 1957 and applaud Leos for their dedicated service in their communities. If your Lions club isn’t involved in the Leo Club Program, consider sponsoring an Alpha Leo club today! Leo clubs offer young people an opportunity to develop valuable leadership skills and gain experience as project organizers and motivators. Join Leos and fellow Lions around the world as they celebrate International Leo Day next month.
