It’s easy to get involved: just host a service project that benefits youth, vision, hunger or the environment during the week of January 10–16. When you report your project via MyLCI, you can earn a Centennial Banner Patch for your club. Download the event flyer and share it with your club, then start planning your service project today!

Give Children Hope for a Brighter Future
Does your district or multiple district have an effective plan to meet the health and educational needs of underserved children in your area? Consider hosting a Lions Services for Children Symposium. A symposium enables you to network with potential, like-minded members and build collaborative partnerships with educators, medical professionals and others who provide assistance to children in need. Determine ways to improve your existing projects or develop new ones. Reimbursement for allowable expenses is available for one pre-approved district or multiple district symposium per Constitutional Area, plus the Continent of Africa, each fiscal year. Learn more about planning a symposium, and submit your application as soon as possible.
