In this month’s Newswire, learn how to participate in Earth Day; watch a new video about a special new Leo club; and get details on the Chicago convention!
Earth Day (April 22) is quickly approaching. It is not too late to plan a simple environmental project and receive credit towards the Centennial Service Challenge. Make a green statement during the month of April by organizing Lions, Leos, family and friends to walk the streets of your neighborhood and pick up litter. Wear green, take photos of your group in action, and share them on social media on Earth Day to show how simple acts can have a big impact on the environment. Remember to report your activities through MyLCI!
The School for the Blind in South Carolina prepares students for lifelong success. Lions donated nearly $60,000 to the school, providing technology and opportunity to the students, and helped students connect with the community by organizing a new Leo club. “Knowing that they are blind and they want to work and give back to the community is so exciting,” said Lion Earlene. “They already have their first community project on the way.” Watch and share the video!
Over 28,000 Lions have registered for the centennial convention and there’s still room for you! Register online by May 1 and avoid the lines onsite. Hotel space is going quickly, so book today to guarantee your special LCI convention hotel rate while they’re still available.
Convention attendees can enjoy two great nights of headlining Rock and Roll Hall of Fame musical groups at our centennial celebration! On July 1, the legendary Beach Boys will open the International Show and on July 3, the band Chicago takes the stage at the International Show Closing Concert. From “Good Vibrations” to “Feelin Stronger Every Day” and more, chart topping songs will fill McCormick Place on these nights!
Make plans to visit your LCI Headquarters Office in Oak Brook during your stay. Chicago tours are also available – including tours to Mount Hope Cemetery to visit Melvin Jones’ gravesite.
