Presidents Message

Fellow Lions,

I have greatly enjoyed being a Lion over the years. Our organization is focused on serving both our local community and the Lions organization. Our service is known and respected.  One of the hallmarks of our local organization is our respect for every member’s contributions, whether large or small. As Lions we do what we can – and enjoy serving with each other as a group.

Projects such as South Lawson Park are tangible signs of what an organization like ours can accomplish as we work together.  I look forward to having a great year with all of you,

Lion Charlie Harris
President, Poquoson Lions Club 2014-2015

Meetings held the 1st and 3rd Thursday at 6:30pm at the Poquoson Community Center, 49 Odd Road in front of the Poquoson High School

Poquoson Empty Stocking Fund Donation

To get the holiday giving season off to a good start, the Poquoson Lions Club made a recent donation to the Poquoson Empty Stocking Fund.  The Empty Stocking Fund accepts money and gift donations to help those in need during the Christmas holiday season.  Monetary contributions allow for the purchase items ranging from toys, clothing and shoes to bed linens, blankets and pillows.  The Poquoson Lions are proud to make a $1000 donation to this very worthy cause run by former City Councilman Frank Krieger and his wife MaDonna Kreiger. Accepting the donation is Frank Kreiger, left, from Lion Kathy Feigh of the Poquoson Lions Club.

COMMUNITY NEWS

We wanted to report that seven Lions were at South Lawson Park on November 13th to continue our beautification project. We helped Dominion Power where we could with their bollard project, then we installed two new Trex benches that we received from our plastic bag recycling efforts.  We put one down by the pond and the other by the swing sets.  After that we walked the park picking up any trash we could find.  Public Works took the trash bags away for us.  Lion Kathy will check to see why the benches we received from Trex are different. The bollards installed by Dominion Power really make the park look nice. Click here for more photos.

Dear Lion, lionsworldwideweekofservicelogo125.png
 
I am inviting you to join me and Lions around the world for a special Centennial Service Challenge event.
 
The Lions Worldwide Week of Service in January is an international event that brings Lions around the world together for a week of service during January 10–16. It's an opportunity to strengthen your community, showcase your club to potential new members, and celebrate the birthday of our founder, Melvin Jones.
 
This year, I'm calling on Lions around the world to rededicate themselves to the mission of our founder and the humanitarian goals of our association. You can put your dedication into action by hosting a Worldwide Week of Service project that benefits youth, vision, hunger or the environment.
 
Whatever you do for the Worldwide Week of Service in January, make it a special day!

Worldwide Week of Service in January

Here's how your club can take part in this special service event:

  1. Plan your project – Host a service project that benefits youth, vision, hunger or the environment during the week of January 10–16.
