Lions Week of Service
Get your club planning now! October 4-10 is Fall Into Service, a week where Lions all over Ohio will be doing all different kind of service around the state. Plant trees, count eyeglasses, man a White Cane Day table, send cards to frontline workers, teachers or nursing homes, volunteer with the local food bank – create your own club’s service project(s). Our goal is for each club to log 90 minutes of service per member.
Send your Service Commitment forms to Lion Ann Miller. The object is to get out and show our communities what “We Serve” means!
Thank-you to all who supported the STEPS Walk!!!
Lion Mona had a nice (and staggered) turn out in Fostoria on September 13! Thank-you to the Fostoria Lions for helping with the logistics and to all of the Lions and clubs that participated. WOW! Check out the Facebook page and the October newsletter for some of the many photos of clubs that participated.
Save your bandana for March 19th and wear it for Friday night fun at the convention!!
And… see the articles of what STEPS and the Ohio Lions Pediatric Cancer Foundation are doing on their website: olpcf.org.
Red Ribbon Week
October 23-30, 2020
In conjuction with the KOPE initiative here in Ohio, can your club and members support Drug Awareness with a Red Ribbon Activity? Watch for an email from Governor Kerry to order supplies if you want them. You can take the activity to the local schools, or participate as a club.
Help fight back against an epidemic that has hit hard at many parts of Ohio’s heartland.
JDRF Diabetes Walk
Mansfield Strides Diabetes Walk
This event has been postponed until 2021.
Is your club looking for a way to do online meetings? Check out this page from LCI with multiple platforms for teleconferencing. Try in a small group first to make sure the service is user friendly for your members.
Remember that part of being a Lion is the fellowship that we have with each other. Take a moment and touch base with your club members to help fight feelings of stress and isolation that many are experiencing. If you have Facebook friendly members, you can also create a private page for your club to have conversations via Facebook.
Lastly, check out the LionsVirtual.org page for resources and videos with ideas for meetings and fundraisers. The hosts of this site will be running online trainings and share-out sessions, so check back in every now and again.
And, where possible, WE SERVE. How can we help our communities? Five Tips for Serving Safely in Your Communities
