Vernon Lions pitch in to help URM

Many businesses, individuals and groups have been stepping up with aid to the Upper Room Mission's recent flood disaster relief. Kudos to community support!

The Vernon Lions have been pitching in with their portable grill and on-site cooking expertise, providing three suppers and two breakfasts to the Mission's regular clients in need of a hot meal. This is what we do! We serve!

If you'd like to help out, either with the immediate need, or future planned meals for when the Mission is back up and running, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Zone Chair Welcomes New Members while making official visit to Vernon

District 19D1's Zone Chair Norm Jaques recently made his official visitation to the Vernon Lions Club and was warmly received, as was his wife, Past Zone Chair Jo-Ann Jaques.

Buffet dinner served by Eagles ladies
ZC Norm addressed members and guests in attendance at our dinner meeting and presented a film promoting Leo Clubs - the junior chapters of service under Lionism available to youths in two age groups. Youth who join Alpha clubs (ages 12-18) have fun, make new friends and experience the rewards of serving others. Omega clubs (ages 18-30) help members further develop their leadership skills and prepare them for a lifetime of community involvement and contribution to society.

During the meeting, the zone chair was pleased to conduct an induction ceremony, ushering two new members into the world of Lions. Along with their sponsor, Lion Ralph, every member of the club congratulated and welcomed our new Lions Rosemary and Lorne, who have already started their community service with trail cleanup and pancake breakfast projects.
