LCIF Chairperson: Lion Zach Mesher

Hello fellow Lions! I am proud to be serving as your District 14-E Lions Clubs International Foundation (LCIF) Chairperson this year. I am very excited to share with you all of the goings-on at LCIF. Please let me know if your club would be interested in hearing a presentation on LCIF, and we can find a date that works.

As we start a new Lions year, I challenge each of your clubs to come up with some ideas to increase your donations to LCIF over the year. Perhaps you can advertise that the proceeds from one of your existing fundraisers will directly benefit a specific LCIF project, such as the Measles Initiative or the Special Olympics Opening Eyes Program.   read more…
