Every year on the fourth Thursday of April, Lions Pride Boothparents across the United States celebrate Take Your Daughter to Work Day. Gloria Steinem created the event in 1993, to expand the career horizons of young girls. Today, Take Your Daughter to Work Day has evolved to “Take Our Children to Work Day” because women now make up half of the US workforce.

Since our kids are officially grown and have work of their own, we thought it would be fun to give our readers and supporters a look inside the daily operations of Lions Pride.

As you may already be familiar, our mission is to preserve, protect and provide. We are continuously looking for ways to help support WLF projects focusing on the Wisconsin Lions Camp, the eyeglass recycling center, diabetes education, early children’s vision screening and more. Donors have a unique opportunity when working with Lions Pride because they have the chance to voice exactly which projects they choose to support.

We just wrapped up our convention season. Throughout the past Lionistic year, we visited many different Lions Club districts around the state, educating them about our organization. We are now moving on to planning and preparing for our next fundraising event, the 9th Annual Sporting Clay Shoot, which will take place on June 11, 2016, at Milford Hills Hunt Club in Johnson Creek.

Although our daily schedule is a bit more unpredictable, we expect to be working alongside the Board of Directors, communicating with our donors, managing the budget, coordinating with the Wisconsin Lions Foundation, keeping up with administrative duties and more.

Typically, our organization consists of one full-time person and two part-time people; however, we are currently searching for a part-time office manager to help with the organization responsibilities. (If you know of someone who fits the job description, please let us know.)

As you can see, there’s never a dull moment around here! We feel so lucky to represent such an outstanding organization with an important message and filled with phenomenal supporters. What else do you want to know about Lions Pride?

Happy “Take Our Children to Work Day”!
