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

May 17, 2015 was a historic day for the Poquoson Lions Club.  This morning Lion Ray Yannello was unanimously elected District Governor of Lions District 24D for the 2015-2016 Lions year.  Lion Ray is the only Poquoson Lion to rise to this level.  The unanimous vote was the first since Immediate Past International Director Lion Hauser Weiler was elected District Governor back in 2001.  (There were strong rumors that the unanimity of the vote was a result of a powerful and insightful nomination speech by a fellow Poquoson Lion, but this is just speculation.)

Lion Ray will be swore in as District Governor at the Lions International Convention taking place 26-30 June in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Our club is part of District 24D, Region I, Zone B.  Region I includes the Peninsula and Northern Neck and is further divided into three Zones.  Zone A consisting of Gloucester and the Northern Neck; Zone B consisting of Williamsburg, Poquoson, York County, and New Kent County; and Zone H consisting of Hampton and Newport News.  You will find links on this website to the Region 24D website, the Poquoson Leos Club and either links to the websites of the other 13 Lion’s Clubs in Region I or a listing of when and where they meet and how to contact them.  We have also included the same information for the Matthews Lion’s Club, which our club originally sponsored.

Poquoson Lions participating in this years Poquoson Christmas Parade.

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.



Update: Corrected link to club branch article
Dear Lion,
You already know there's a big difference between communities that have a Lions club and communities that don't. A healthy club with active members can truly bring a community to life. That's why it's so important to continue building a strong club. One of the best ways to strengthen your club is by inviting new members. And there are so many great ways to do it:
Ask One – The Ask One campaign shows that each Lion can play a part in building membership, and it all starts by asking one friend, family member or neighbor to join.
Service Projects – On your next project, invite family and friends to serve with you so they can feel the satisfaction of service, then ask them to keep serving with you as Lions.
Special Events – Invite your community to join you for special events like Family and Friends Month in April to showcase your club and the difference you're making.
Inviting new members is the responsibility of all Lions, so continue to make membership a priority and keep encouraging your members to Ask One!

Start a Club Branch in Your Community!

Club branches are a great way for your club to increase membership and expand service in your community. Branch members become part of an existing "parent" Lions club—your club—but they organize their own meetings, projects and officers just like a regular club. It only takes 5 people to form a club branch, which makes it easier to get started.
A club branch is great way to add members and bring needed service to remote areas of your community. It's also a good option for potential new members who can't make your club meetings or for people who are passionate about a special type of service.
Learn more about starting your own club branch today!

Protect Our Environment in April

Looking for a great way to make a difference and find new members? Consider hosting a special service project for family and friends during the Protecting Our Environment campaign in April.
You can organize a community clean-up, plant a tree, plan a "green" campaign or a recycling project to make your community a better place for all. Check out the project planning guide or click "Learn more" for additional information and resources. And remember to share your projects through MyLCI to earn a Centennial Banner Patch for your club!
