Lions Lazarus Program -What is the Lazarus Program and how do Massachusetts Lions Clubs support the organ donor program?  The Lazarus Program is one of the Massachusetts Lions sponsored programs.  Its purpose is to promote the need for organ donations.  Monies raised are used to provide organ donor information to the Massachusetts Registry of Motor Vehicles by providing organ donor cards.  In addition, during 2003-2004 The Lazarus Fund board of directors in conjunction with other agencies created a video highlighting organ donation and provided that video to all Drivers Education Training schools in Massachusetts.  For more information click on this Lazarus link.

Peace Poster Contest - Each year, Lions clubs around the world proudly sponsor the Lions International Peace Poster Contest in local schools and youth groups. This art contest for kids encourages young people worldwide (ages 11 - 13) to express their visions of peace. For 25 years, more than eight million children from nearly 100 countries have participated in the contest.   Each year's art contest consists of an original theme incorporating peace (2015 - 2016 "Share Peace").  Participants use a variety of mediums, including charcoal, crayon, pencil and paint, to express the theme through their life experiences and culture.  Twenty-four international Peace Poster entries are selected each year, representing the work of approximately 400,000 young people worldwide. Posters are shared globally via the Internet, the media and exhibits around the world. Want more information just click on the Contest link.

Club Twinning Program
Billerica Lions Club has been twinned with Kathmandu Gliese Lions Club in Nepal since June 2013.  This Nepal club has been a member of Lions International since December 2008.  Their plans include supporting the helpless and needy people in society.  Most recently in August 2014 they undertook a special project - a Street Children Program in the Slum area in Kathmandu, a problem that extends to all ages, including senior citizens.  The program has initially concentrated on the underprivileged students and the school, distributing stationary, sports materials, toys and musical instruments.
