This page links you to important happenings in our own District MD201Q4 and what's making news at the National Level .
Initial “Lions Lap the Map for Diabetes” Sunday 17th November 2019Earlier this year, the Multiple District 210 Council of Governors adopted a policy that clubs should be encouraged to conduct activities and projects that promote healthy lifestyle and improve education awareness about Diabetes.
To support this policy, all Clubs are encouraged to participate in a National Day of Action which we are calling “LIONS LAP THE MAP FOR DIABETES” to support World Diabetes Day (WDD) on 14th Nov 2019. MD201 clubs are asked to stage this event on Sunday 17 November 2019 on a day in November which suits their local community.
The “signature activity” will be a self-paced “low level” walk of varying distances as set in each location, but not exceeding 5 km, with “time of day” also to suit local conditions.

Changes to the way you login to MyLCIFrom March 27, 2019 all our Lions digital applications will be grouped into a single account, which will be called your Lion Account. This account will use a single, universal login system. Instead of using different credentials to login to different applications, we’ll use one User ID and Password to access them all (MyLion, MyLCI, Shop and upcoming applications).
For MyLion users—you’re all set! Your MyLion credentials will work for your Lion Account.
URL for MyLon on Web https://app.mylion.org
MyLCI users will be asked to create a Lion Account if they have not already registered on MyLion.
We recognize this will be a short term disruption for all MyLCI users, but we believe this approach will have big benefits in the future as we add/improve applications and give our members a great online space to be Lions. Login and register at https://app.mylion.org/ and if you need help getting registered, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
