Lions Club would like to restart organization in Keremeos

Lions Club International
President Joe Preston makes a personal pitch to revive the
service club in the community

  • Aug. 26, 2014 3:00 p.m.

As Lions we need to roar.

We need to tell the whole world who we are, and that we will never stop trying, because we have service to perform, and we are going to provide it,  no matter what the challenges are.

Lions Clubs International was born of courage and has succeeded due to our conviction  to the principle that it is better to serve others, than to serve ourselves.

And if we stay focused – that same courage and conviction will carry us into the future.

Lions International is the largest service club in the world 1.35 million members, more than 46,000 clubs worldwide and in over 200 countries.

The Keremeos Lions Club in your area has closed, and we would like to bring it  back or start a branch club to help needy people in your community.


If you are interested in helping your community, please call  MD19 D9 Zone Chairperson Joanne Bray 250-498-3433 or  MD19 D9 Membership, Linda Schaffrick 250-498-3710
