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 Contest encourages young people worldwide to artistically express their visions of peace.

The theme of the 2010-11 Peace Poster Contest is "Vision of Peace." Students, ages 11, 12 or 13 on November 15, are eligible to participate.

Congratulations Lions Families of District A-1, A-2, A-9 and A-15! Together, over a period of 6 years, we have donated $225,000 to the Children’s Health Foundation through our “Healing Garden” Project!

Lions Foundation of Canada

In addition to training Dog Guides for people who are blind or visually impaired, the Lions Foundation also trains Dog Guides to meet the needs of Canadians with hearing and other medical or physical disabilities. All programs are offered at no charge to the client, but future care and maintenance become the responsibility of the Dog Guide recipient.
