Lions Centennial Celebrations
Lions International was founded on 7th June 1917
For nearly 100 years, Lions have served their communities and impacted millions of people around the world.
To celebrate our 100th anniversary, we are asking Lions to help reach our Centennial Service Challenge goal of serving 100 million people by June 2018. Every club can play a part in reaching our goal, and your club can earn special Centennial recognition when you serve!
201Q4 District 100th Anniversary coordinator is Will Bauer patb201Q4@gmail.com
Your club can earn a Centennial Banner Patch with a special gemstone design each year you support our Centennial Service Challenge campaigns to impact Youth, Vision, Hunger and the Environment.
- Each gemstone represents the number of different Centennial Service Challenge campaigns your club participates in during the fiscal year.
- The more Centennial Service Challenge campaigns your club participates in, the more gemstones you can earn for your banner patch.
- Earn a diamond-level Centennial Banner Patch by participating in all four Centennial Service Challenge campaigns!
Your club can earn up to four Centennial Banner Patches by participating in each year of the Centennial Service Challenge. Qualifying donations to Lions Clubs International Foundation will also count toward your Centennial Banner Patch.
All Centennial service activities must be reported through MyLCI's Service Activity Report to receive credit.
Connect with your community and build your Lion legacy by planning a Centennial Community Legacy Project during our Centennial Celebration. Legacy Projects are visible gifts to your community that commemorate our Centennial and create a lasting legacy of your service contributions.
Your Legacy Project will serve as a reminder of just how important your club is to the community during the Centennial and beyond. All Lions clubs around the world are encouraged to complete a Legacy Project by June 30, 2018, so start planning yours today!
We are looking for 100 extraordinary clubs to join us in a national campaign to celebrate the Lions centennial and the remarkable work of Lions in Australia. These ‘100 stories of service’ will be circulated in local and national media, and eight will feature in a double page spread in Country Style. In addition the Lions National office will publicise the stories on their website and social media, and is looking to publish a special centennial “100 years, 100 stories of service” book that will provide a unique snapshot of Lions in Australia. Latest date for applications. 30 November 2015.
