2016-17 President’s Theme: New Mountains to Climb

Reach the summit of service by joining Lions in the Centennial Service Challenge to help 100+ million people; build your club by inviting for impact; connect with communities through Centennial Legacy Projects and promoting your activities; and lead Lions over the next mountain. Find resources on the LCI website.

Lions from around the world gathered and marched in the exciting Parade of Nations; discussed new ways to make an impact in our local and global communities; enjoyed spectacular shows and Japanese culture; and more. Visit the LCICon Facebook page for photos and videos, and search #LCICon on Facebook and Twitter for posts from attendees. You can also see video highlights on the LCICon YouTube channel.
