We are pleased to share that Lions Clubs International is extending the Involve a U.S. Veteran pilot program through June 30, 2016. This program waives the charter or entrance fee for U.S. Veterans joining a Lions club in the United States.
Eligible veterans include retired U.S. military personnel or honorably-discharged members of the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard Services, Marines, National Guard, Navy or Reserves. Those currently serving in the National Guard or Reserves are also eligible. Lions Clubs International will provide an entrance fee waiver of $25 ($30 for charter members) to qualified U.S. veterans that join a local Lions club.
Veterans have made so many great contributions and sacrificed so much to serve our country. As service members return home from serving in the military, lions want to offer them an opportunity to get involved in their communities.
Visit the Involve a U.S. Veteran web page to download a fact sheet, promotional flyer, certification form and a sample press release.
Make plans now to reach out to veterans in your community and offer them the opportunity to make a difference and change lives as a lion.
My goal as District Governor is to find those veterans and form this much rewarding specialty club. Call me if you are interested at 242-1129 as i would love to talk with you about lionism.
