Here at Lions Pride, we like to acknowledge unique holidays and facts about the Lions Pride Thank Youmonths that happen throughout the year that our readers may have not already heard about.

We’ve written about Earth Day, Diabetes Awareness Month and World Sight Day. This month, we get to talk about another fun holiday – National Volunteer Month.

It seems like the news that we ever hear about in the media is bad news? By celebrating National Volunteer Month, we get a chance to recognize the good that happens all over the world, but may go unnoticed.

Would you be able to guess how many volunteers there are in the United States? The number might more than you imagine! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, approximately 62 million Americans volunteered through or for an organization at least once between September 2013 and September 2014. Wow!

We think one of the best parts about volunteering is that you can individually serve a cause that you care about in whichever way you choose. Plus, whether you are able to volunteer for an hour or an entire day, every bit of time makes a difference in the eyes of the organization.

National Volunteer Month also gives us an opportunity to highlight one of our favorite events of the year. In seven short weeks, we will be holding our Annual Shoot. On Saturday, June 13, our 8th Annual Shoot will take place at Milford Hills in Johnson Creek. We are looking for volunteers to make this event another success.

Lions Pride Annual Shoot VolunteersOur volunteers hold many different roles throughout the day including shooting station attendants, raffle ticket sellers and registration workers. No experience is necessary, and everyone will receive lunch and/or dinner.

The Lions Pride Shoot is an event you won’t want to miss!

In the past, guests have chosen to join us for lunch and dinner and walk the course to see the shooters in action and breathe in the beautiful scenery. We’d love for you to join us.

To become a volunteer, please contact us directly by calling 715-677-7000 or emailing us at prideoffice@lionspride.org. You can also register as a shooter or sponsor, for a copy of our brochure click here. Thank you for your support!
