Be A Lion - When a group of people join together, roll up their sleeves and take action on projects to make their community better, it’s a beautiful thing—and an incredible feeling for everyone involved. That’s Lions. Being a Lion is about leading by example, building relationships and improving the world through kindness. It’s how caring men and women serve together so they can make an even greater impact and change more lives.
The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched - they must be felt with the heart. - Helen Keller
PDG Jack Buckland presented a Richmond Lions Club Philanthropic Grant check in the amount of $500.00 to Jan Passmore of the Crossroads Council of America Boy Scouts. Jan spoke briefly to Lions attending of his background in both Lion and Kiwanis. The grant will be used to assist scouts in the Richmond area who could not otherwise afford to go to summer camp, assist in the purchase of uniforms and to expand the STEM program. The STEM program is a program for young people focusing on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
