Lions and Lionesses all over the world are celebrating Friends and Family Month inFriends and Family Month April. Think back when you first joined the Lions Club, why did you decide to become a member? We bet your friends and family would love to know why. There’s never been a better time to introduce your loved ones to your local Lions Club.

We’ve compiled a list of ideas to get your family members involved in your group.

  • Plan an open house

An open house is not only a great way to show your friends what it means to be a Lion, but also meet other club family members, strengthening your own club relationships. Be sure to make it a fun event for all who attend with snacks and activities. Who knows? You might also inspire future Lions.

  • Educate yourself and others on issues you care about

We all have issues that are close to our hearts such as Lions Camp, eyeglass recycling, diabetes education and/or hearing projects. Take the time to learn about and then share why these issues are so important and the difference they are making in the community.

  • Volunteer together

We all know the quote, “Charity benefits the giver more than the receiver.” Show your friends and family the truth in the saying. Charity is something you can explain, but cannot truly understand the meaning unless it is experienced. Make a difference together by spending a day, or even a few days, volunteering. We know that sometimes a volunteering commitment requires preparation. The 8th Annual Lions Pride Shoot is coming up on Saturday, June 13, and we’re beginning to look for volunteers!

  • Give a gift in his or her name

Piggybacking off the last point, it’s never too early or late to show your friends and family the value of charity. Give a gift in his or her name and explain exactly what their gift will help fund. A donation to the Wisconsin Lions Pride Endowment Fund will ensure a future for the Wisconsin Lions Camp and other WLF projects.

Don’t miss a great opportunity to spend time with your friends and family while making a difference all at the same time. How will you plan to celebrate Friends and Family Month?
