All clubs are encouraged to connect with your community and build your Lion legacy by planning a Centennial Community Legacy Project during our Centennial Celebration. Legacy Projects are visible gifts to your community that commemorate our Centennial and create a lasting legacy of your service contributions.
Our Legacy Project will serve as a reminder of just how important your club is to the community during the Centennial and beyond. All Lions clubs around the world are encouraged to complete a Legacy Project by June 30, 2018, so start planning yours today!
Your board or directors is asking members to come up with ideas and suggestions for our Legacy Project for our community. Please think about, discuss with each other and submit your suggestions to any board member.
We have Lions Club collection boxes at the following locations through out the Kernersville and Walkertow areas to collect cell phones, hearing aids and eye glasses. The Lions listed beside the location have agreed to pickup collected items periodically and bring to Lion Jerry Medford for transport to Camp Dogwood. If a new box is needed, please let Secretary Marvin Bare know ASAP. Lion Larry Martin has some new smaller boxes for collecting eye glasses. If you want to replace a larger one with a smaller one, please contact him.
