Lions Club members see world of change
Greeted by Joseph Preston, first vice president of Lions Clubs International, the 54th annual Lions Club Multiple District State Convention at the Crowne Plaza was a time to reflect on recent accomplishments and plan for future community initiatives.
“We have to be creative to find new members and encourage younger generations. There are opportunities for people of all ages who have a passion for their local communities,” said Preston, who will become president of Lions Clubs International in July during the club’s international convention in Toronto.
Much of their work focuses on fundraising, with donations going directly back into communities to help with local needs, according to Preston.
Perhaps the most monumental moment since becoming involved in the Lions Club was a visit to El Salvador, said the couple from Arizona.
